Overcoming a Whiplash Injury

Have you had a Whiplash Injury? Are you dealing with neck pain, headaches, numbness & tingling or other issues years later? Learn how Structural Chiropractic might help!

If you read almost any research that has ever been done on whiplash injuries, it is almost impossible to not find related health issues following the accident. It is yet another solid validation that spinal structural shifts and resulting nerve obstruction can either be a primary cause or at least a significant contributing factor in a wide variety of health conditions.

What’s important to note is…

…the damage of your vehicle has no bearing on how much damage may have been done to you.


One of the design features of cars (K-cars) made after 1980 was that they had a frame that could withstand impact. In fact the rear fender was called the “No Crumple Bumper.”

It sounded like a good idea, but what would happen is that the car would be struck from the rear, and rather than the frame absorbing the impact, it transfers the energy into the car, into the passenger and causes the greatest
amount of trauma to the passenger at the most vulnerable place—the cervical spine. With the success of the K-Car, virtually every car manufacturer in the world copied the technology, which is still in effect today.

The cars are…less prone to property damage, but substantially increase the injury risk to the passenger.

A comprehensive research review concluded that there is compelling evidence pointing to dysfunction in patients with suffering from whiplash injury. Changes in the central nervous system could make whiplash patients more sensitive to other types pain.

According to the Journal of Orthopedic Medicine, compared to the necks of uninjured patients, a single incidence of whiplash increases the occurrence of neck arthritis by ten years.

In our video of the month below, Dr. Adam discusses Whiplash injuries, some of the secondary effects and how NeuroStructural Corrective care may help. You can also view our health issue on Whiplash below this video. Both are great to share with a friend or loved one who may have been in accident.
