We will find the source and correct the problem.



Whiplash is a surprisingly common condition that affects more than two million Americans each year.

While most commonly thought to be the result of being involved in a car accident, this condition can also result from other blunt-force trauma events.

If you are an active person who often participates in sports (football or hockey), or high-impact activities such as snowboarding, skiing, or boxing, your chances of suffering a whiplash injury are very high.

If you have sustained a whiplash injury in Portland from any cause, you should seek whiplash chiropractic care immediately.

How Do Whiplash Injuries Happen?

Whiplash occurs when the neck is forcefully thrown in one direction followed by a forceful blow to the other direction. There are various serious injuries that can result from whiplash, including but not limited to:

  • – Pulled or torn ligaments and muscles in the neck
  • – Misaligned spine or vertebrae in the spine
  • – Damaged or pinched nerves
  • – Injured spinal bones
  • – Slipped or herniated discs


While the scale on which you suffer from these injuries may vary, it’s not uncommon for whiplash victims to exhibit symptoms of multiple of these injuries at different levels of severity.

What Are Common Whiplash Symptoms?

Keep in mind that whiplash will affect different people, differently.

The extent of your injury, the type of accident that caused it, and your previous physical health are all factors that contribute to the toll that a whiplash injury has on your body.

Here are some of the most common symptoms of whiplash:

  • – Persistent headache
  • – Stiffness or pain in the neck extending into the shoulders
  • – Numbness or tingling that extends from the neck to the shoulders
  • – Arm or jaw pain
  • – Abnormal emotional distress such as fatigue, depression, or mood swings
  • – Being unable to fully turn or move head due to pain or stiffness
  • – Ringing in the ears
  • – Difficulty balancing or being coordinated
  • – Visual disturbances, vertigo, dizziness
  • – Upper and lower back pain

What To Do If You Have Whiplash Symptoms In Portland

If you are experiencing one or more of these symptoms to any degree, there is cause for alarm.

Whiplash, if left untreated or not given the appropriate care, can result in lifelong pain and limited mobility in the back, neck, and shoulders.

Even if you think that you did not sustain a whiplash injury, it’s still essential that you seek professional care for your injury.

Whiplash symptoms may manifest differently to you than you’d expect or may take several weeks for you to realize that your discomfort is whiplash at all, so it’s wise to find medical help immediately following an accident.
