Chiropractors in Erie

Injuries caused by sudden neck distortion along with extension are referred to as whiplash injuries. The technical term for whiplash is cervical acceleration-deceleration (CAD). The resulting injuries and symptoms are known as whiplash associated disorders (WAD). Erie chiropractors are experienced in providing care for people suffering from whiplash injuries.

Whiplash injury can occur due to many reasons, including a fall from heights, horseback or cycles. However, the predominant cause of whiplash injury is rear-ending of motor vehicles, usually at fairly low speeds, resulting in low impact accidents. As the occupant's head first snaps forward and then back again, causing the spine and the associated ligament to be stretched or torn, whiplash injury results. Erie chiropractors are familiar with this condition and routinely help individuals so afflicted.

Following a motor vehicle collision, people have complained of headaches, neck and back pain, pain in the shoulders, and “pins and needles” in the arms and legs due to sensory disturbances. Sometimes weeks or months later. Whiplash related symptoms are largely confined to the spinal column, usually in the neck and middle of the spine. Erie chiropractors correct these conditions by delivering chiropractic adjustments at just the right place and time.

Any motion that closely approximates the whiplash movement caused by a rear impact on a motor vehicle - including skiing, roller coaster or other amusement park rides, or the act of being kicked or shaken – can cause whiplash injuries. When you visit one of the chiropractors in Erie from the list below, be sure to inform them about the exact cause of the whiplash injury.
