Whiplash (CDF) is an injury to the muscles and joints of the neck. It often occurs from a trauma (for example, a car accident) that causes an uncontrolled movement of the cervix. The consequences are neck pain and movement difficulties which can be short or long-lasting. Over the years I have helped many patients who had to encounter whiplash on their way. If you’re ready to learn more about the CDF, buckle up, and let’s get started.
The SFAO almost always occurs due to a car accident, such as a sudden rear-end collision, or as a result of falls or slips. 2 out of 3 people involved in a car accident subsequently suffer from whiplash.
- 66% OF PEOPLE INVOLVED IN TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS SUFFER FROM CDF
- 8 KM / H IS ENOUGH TO BE AFFECTED
- IT MAY TAKE UP TO 48H FOR THE SYMPTOMS MANIFESTATIONS
- CDF IS CAUSED BY A STRONG UNCONTROLLED MOVEMENT OF THE NECK
- IT IS OFTEN CAUSED BY BOTH FRONT, SIDE, AND REAR TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS

CAUSE AND CONSEQUENCES OF WHIPLASH ON THE BODY
Symptoms may take 2 to 48 hours to show. With an abnormal movement, the neck curves in an S shape changing its correct structure, and the following things happen:
Our cervical is made to flex (bend forward) or extend (bend backward). During the whiplash, these two movements occur simultaneously. What does all this entail? The joints in the back of the neck impact each other compromising all nearby structures: from nerves to muscles, from tendons to muscle fascia, from joint capsule to ligaments, arteries, and up the discs. This leads to the spinal column being distorted; The spinal column, especially the cervical one, is rich in movement receptors that communicate to the brain where the body is at that precise moment about the external space (proprioception).
The moment these receptors come damaged, they can experience disturbances such as:
- feeling of lightheadedness
- neck pain
- ill head
- Hernia of the disc causing pain in the arm or leg.
- dizziness, nausea, and blurred vision.
- pain and stiffness at the level cervical;
- decreased ability to rotate and move the neck;
- pain when moving the head.
HOW TO TREAT THE WHIPLASH WITH CHIROPRACTIC
There are several ways to solve CDF-related problems. Chiropractic uses natural remedies. Particular corrections help to restore the natural function of the cervical and its receptors so that the symptoms disappear. There is not just one type of handling (chiropractic adjustment), on the contrary. Based on each case, the chiropractor decides which are treatment improvements, including chiropractic adjustments, muscle stimulation and/or relaxation, lifestyle changes, and exercises.
