Whiplash mostly happens to people during car accidents. That is because the head is snapped forward or back too fast. Sometimes whiplash can happen unbeknownst to people because it can be caused by repeated strain on the neck like holding the telephone between your head and shoulder. Symptoms sometimes wait a week to show themselves. Pain can occur in obvious places like the neck and can cause headaches. However the nervous system and spinal cord are a central part of your body so you can feel pain all the way down your arms and at your hands. Visiting a chiropractor in Evansville will treat the part of your body affected by whiplash.
