Most people associate this with car accidents but every knock, fall, bump of the head or fall in the shower can all create joint restrictions and muscle spasms.

Whiplash is most often associated with severe car accidents but even the most minor bump in the car can cause the same effects as whiplash. Even everyday activities when done repeatedly can lead to similar effects of whiplash including swimming with the head out of the water, yoga poses like head stand, getting your hair washed at the hairdressers, falling off your horse or bike. Over time these can lead to joint dysfunction and nerve irritation causing you neck pain and stiffness, headaches, mid back pain, numbness and tingling or even dizziness.

Chiropractors are skilled at diagnosing and correcting your spinal and joint problems so don’t delay and don’t suffer from pain. The sooner you get your spine checked the less chance there is of long term damage and the quicker you will be out of pain.
