ob_9c2cf8_couplapin

The literal translation of whiplash means “whiplash”. This traumatic phenomenon is the common denomination of complaints that appeared after a sudden and violent movement of the head. The most common example is that of a car crash with a rear collision and a sudden stop.

“I have not had anything!”

How many people minimize the scope of their accident see have totally forgotten?

X-rays showed nothing and so they had nothing! However, many studies show that, even in a seemingly ordinary accident, being struck by the rear, even at low speeds (around 8-10 km / h), could already cause lesions in the cervical spine.

Hyperextension, compression, and displacement can cause (micro) lesions in all structures such as intervertebral joints, intervertebral discs, joint ligaments, muscles, nerve pathways, and spinal cord. If the head is not in the axis at the time of the impact (sideways, for example), the risk of injury is even greater.

A stroke of the rabbit may include cervical pain, shoulder pain, dizziness, headache, tiredness, and sometimes blurred vision, tinnitus (sound in the ears), sleep problems, difficulty concentrating, memory problems and depression.

A cerebral concussion is a shock of the brain, resulting from a shock. This results in poor functioning of the brain cells and transient disturbances of brain function. After a shock, the soft tissues of the brain could “bang” against the hard bone of the skull and cause bruising until some blood vessels break down and lesions to the nerve cells.

Studies show that some symptoms may appear very quickly (eg within 24 hours after the rabbit’s stroke) but others may appear much later, sometimes months or years after the consequences of the accident. Often patients report that their sleep problems or headaches or depression have come months after the accident.

If no pathology is present, you may still suffer from symptoms in the long term. Be vigilant about the appearance of the symptoms mentioned and consult a chiropractor who, after examination, will be able to help you in all that could be caused by the blockages and nervous irritations following the accident. Different studies have shown the effectiveness of chiropractic care for these problems following a stroke of the rabbit.

What to do after a rabbit’s stroke

First not to say that everything is fine and not decline the offer of firefighters to take additional exams. A medical examination in the hospital is often wise to detect a fracture, a haemorrhage, …

As we have seen, even if no pathology is present, you may nevertheless suffer from symptoms in the more or less long term. Be vigilant about the appearance of the symptoms mentioned and consult a chiropractor who, after examination, will be able to help you in all that could be caused by the blockages and nervous irritations following the accident. Different studies have shown the effectiveness of chiropractic care for these problems following a stroke of the rabbit.

Chiropractors are trained to treat many of the symptoms that develop as a result of a car crash / whiplash. Once the initial examinations have been made and there is no fracture or tear following the accident, the chiropractor can take care of the patient for his or her neck problems, cervical headaches , Vertigo, cervico-brachial neuralgia, etc.
