Discover Drug-Free Whiplash Relief with Our Chiropractor in NYC
As a chiropractor in NYC with advanced professional training and experience, Dr. James Farren has been leading the way here at Dey Street Chiropractic since 2012. He and his multidisciplinary team—including medical doctors, physical therapists, acupuncturists, and massage therapists—meet hundreds of New Yorkers every year struggling with pain and dysfunction related to whiplash, a common condition that can affect people of all ages.
Understanding Whiplash with our NYC Chiropractor
When most people hear whiplash, they rightly envision it as an auto accident injury. It's quite common after car crashes because the very nature of even small fender benders can impose a lot of force and tension on the spine, and cause your neck to rapidly snap forward and back, leading to inflammation, tissue damage, strain, and joint subluxations in the cervical spine, shoulders, and upper back.
Whiplash syndrome can also occur after any sort of personal injury that causes the neck to jerk rapidly back and forth. This may include slips, falls, and sports collisions.
Signs and Symptoms of Whiplash—Including a Surprising One
Whiplash can vary in type and intensity, but frequently involves signs and symptoms such as:
- Neck pain and stiffness
- Shoulder pain and stiffness
- Jaw pain
- Ringing in the ears
- Numbness and tingling in the arms or hands
As for a surprising sign of whiplash—it's no symptoms. For days or even weeks after an initial injury, there may be a delay in symptoms because stress hormones like adrenaline (which surged in response to the causative trauma) can actually mask pain and other signs of damage until they return to their normal resting levels.
