What are the Risks of Not Receiving Whiplash Care?

Written By Platinum Chiropractic on September 27, 2019

Woman with whiplashWhiplash is one of the most common – and most sneaky – auto accident injuries. Despite this, conventional medicine lacks comprehensive and effective options for treating whiplash.

The fact is, over 175,000 people find themselves in auto accidents on Minnesota roads every year. If you aren’t taking a proactive approach to correct the imbalances in your spine, it can lead to long-term damage.

What Happens if You Don’t Receive Whiplash Care?

According to a study, 45% of people who suffer from chronic neck pain could trace the source of their pain to a vehicle accident.

The truth is, you may not immediately realize you’ve experienced whiplash: many people feel fine after an accident but pain and headaches creep on over the following days.

In some cases, the injuries your spine sustains during whiplash are so tiny, MRIs and CT scans can’t pick them up. While the most common complication of not receiving proper whiplash care is chronic neck pain, you are also at risk for:

  • Tinnitus (ringing in your ears)

  • Chronic headaches

  • Dizziness

  • Vertigo

  • Other neurological problems

As you can see, it’s important to seek care after a vehicle accident, whether you feel fine or not.
