How Does Whiplash Affect The Rest Of Your Body?

Posted by Cobb Chiropractic Clinic on Jun 10, 2019 5:00:55 PM

If you've ever been in a car accident, you likely sustained some type of injury.

Even the most insignificant fender benders can cause some type of damage to your body.

Luckily, most of them aren't serious, but the damage has still been done.

Sometimes you think you've escaped without injury, but hours, or even days later you start developing symptoms that you haven't noticed up until that point.

That's why it's always important to seek medical attention after an accident, no matter how you feel.

When you're involved in an accident, your endorphins and the flow of adrenaline can prevent you from feeling any pain immediately after the fact.

Serious injuries can go undetected until the body has had a chance to return to its normal state.

One of the most common injuries you can sustain during your accident, that can also go unnoticed, is whiplash.

Whiplash frequently occurs in car accidents because of the sudden impact that accompanies them.

Most people think whiplash only affects your neck.

It does affect your neck, but it can also affect you in many more ways.

In the article below we will learn about whiplash, and how it affects your body.

With the amount of small local businesses here in Greensboro and the Triad area in general, it's no surprise that many local North Carolinians  spend the majority of their day sitting and working in an office setting.

For most of us, we go from sitting all day at our job or at school to home where we just want to "relax" by sitting on the couch for the remainder of the day. 

Unfortunately, prolonged sitting can cause a multitude of adverse health effects, such as back or neck pain that often occurs because of poor posture. 

Adopting proper sitting positions is crucial for maintaining good posture and a healthy spine. Many people will be able to improve their posture by simply changing their sitting positions.

How Long Will It Take for My Whiplash to Go Away?

Posted by Cobb Chiropractic Clinic on Jun 10, 2019 4:58:50 PM

Just like with any injury, there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all healing process for whiplash. 

No two people are exactly alike; therefore, everybody heals differently and at different times. 

The average recovery time for whiplash injuries is about 6 weeks.  However, the healing process will vary from person to person based on the severity of the injury and personal characteristics such as age, mental health, and occupation.   

People who are more severely injured from the accident will take longer to fully recover.
