Whiplash injuries occur when the neck is suddenly and/or violently jolted in one direction and then another, creating a whip-like movement. Whiplash is usually caused by being in an automobile accident. The aggressive movement of the head causes the neck to incur muscle strains, tears, and joint disruption among other things.  Basic whiplash symptoms include: neck pain, headache, shoulder pain, low back pain, difficulty swallowing, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, nausea, fatigue or weakness, and irritability. Spinal manipulation is clearly effective and a proven method for care of whiplash symptoms.
