Whiplash Is More Than A Pain in the Neck

Whiplash is more than just a pain in the neck.

 

Also called neck sprain or neck strain, whiplash is characterized by a collection of symptoms that occur following damage to the neck. This is due to the sudden back and forth motion of a trauma like a car accident.

 

Just about two-thirds of people involved in motor vehicle accidents will develop symptoms of whiplash. 

 

However, whiplash symptoms usually take a few hours or days after the injury to show up.

 

Although very prevalent in car accidents, whiplash can also occur from falls, sports injuries, work injuries, and other traumas to the neck.

 

 

If you have been involved in an accident, especially a car accident, you should seek medical attention from a whiplash injury chiropractor to ensure you don't have whiplash.

 

Even if you feel fine immediately after the accident, your whiplash symptoms could be lying dormant. 

 

The sooner you are checked out, the better chance you have at a full recovery.

 

In the article below, we will discuss whiplash and why it is more than just a pain in the neck.

Why Health Insurance Is Not Used For Auto Accident Injuries

Getting into a car accident can be scary, especially if you're injured.

But unfortunately, car accidents and truck accidents are never completely avoidable.

If you do get injured, you will not only have to focus on your physical recovery, but you will have to worry about insurance, filing claims, and how you're going to pay your medical bills.

Many people don't know which insurance to use after a car accident, and many assume that they can't use their health insurance.

Getting medical care and getting it paid for can be especially tricky after a car accident.

Whether or not your health insurance will cover your auto accident bills and exactly how much responsibility a particular party or insurance carrier has depends on several factors.

These factors include co-pays, who was at fault for the accident, and the types of insurance coverages in place.

Ultimately, many health insurance policies will cover auto accident injuries, at least to an extent. Still, your health insurance typically won't be your first option.

And they might not be on the hook at all.

In the article below, we will take a closer look at if you can use your health insurance company after receiving car accident injuries.

How To Stay Active While You're Stuck at Home

COVID-19 guidelines recommend that we "socially distance" with measures like working from home. 

 

Doing this hopefully means the spread of the virus will be slow and steady, rather than all at once, easing the pressure on the hospitals.

 

The prospect of staying at home for a long time can seem overwhelming and a little scary, especially if you're someone who enjoys keeping fit and active and hitting that daily step count.

 

Rather than letting the isolation scare you, we should instead try and embrace it.

 

View it as an opportunity to get your sweat on with new, at-home workouts you've never tried before, incorporate more simple healthy habits into your daily routine, and mix things up a little. 

 

Remember, self-isolating doesn't mean sitting down doing nothing for several weeks.

Can You Give Yourself A Chiropractic Adjustment?

You might be practicing self chiropractic without even realizing it. Sometimes manipulating your joints is something you don't even think about. 

You lean your neck to the left, pull your shoulder down to the right, hoping to achieve the familiar popping sound and get some relief.  

However, since a chiropractic manipulation is a specific force applied in a specific direction to a specific joint, it is impossible to effectively adjust one's own spine.

Yes, twisting the neck or back in certain ways can create “popping” sounds like that made with a chiropractic adjustment. But, you can't really "adjust" yourself, and if you try, it can sometimes cause more harm than good.

It's better to seek treatment from an experienced Chiropractor.


 

 

In the article below, we will talk about why you shouldn't try to adjust yourself, and instead seek treatment from a chiropractor.
