Diagnosing Whiplash in Loveland, CO

Whiplash is a spinal injury that may take up to 24 hours to cause noticeable symptoms. However, it can do serious and often undetected damage at first, to your spinal discs, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and even nearby body parts without proper treatment. Most whiplash occurs during auto accidents and affect the neck and upper back, but sports injuries, accidental falls, workplace injuries, and other types of trauma can also cause the rapid back-and-forth motion that characterizes whiplash injuries which also can affect the entire spine.

Common Symptoms of Whiplash

Your Loveland chiropractor will need to confirm that your spinal injury is, in fact, whiplash and potentially related to a specific accident, such as an auto collision. We’ll start by interviewing you about your accident any symptoms you’ve noticed since then and further discuss your treatment goals. Common symptoms from whiplash injuries may include:

Neck pain

Neck pain that worsens with movement

Neck stiffness

Headaches that spread from the base of your skull

Tenderness or dull pain in your upper back, shoulders, and/or arms

Dizziness

Ringing sound in your ears
