   Home      Whiplash
Whiplash is an injury to the neck that occurs from a sudden back and forth movement of the head and neck. It is often the tragic result of front or rear-end collisions. When the head is suddenly jerked back and forth beyond its normal limits, the muscles and ligaments supporting the spine and head can be over-stretched or torn. Whiplash may include injury to the joints, discs, ligaments, cervical muscles, and nerve roots. Even though the car may have received little damage, the occupants can suffer considerable soft tissue injury.
People who experience whiplash may report experiencing one or more symptoms. Symptoms can occur immediately after the accident, or may appear several days or even weeks later:
  • Neck/Shoulder pain and stiffness
  • Sensations such as burning or "pins and needles"
  • Irritability
  • Poor sleep
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty with concentration or memory
  • Depression
  • Dizziness/Light-headedness
If you suffer from acute and chronic pain, acupuncture can offer pain relief naturally and with no adverse side effects. The sooner the treatment begins, the quicker the pain relieves. If you would like to pursue this form of treatment or information, please contact Xiaoyan.
