Neck Problems & Whiplash
Your neck is jam-packed with nerves, glands,
tubes, blood, and lymph vessels, and 48 different joints, plus your brain
stem, spinal cord, spinal column, muscles, ligaments, tendons, fluids,
meninges, and more! It also balances your heavy head!!
Whiplash occurs when the head and neck
are thrown or "snapped" back and forth very quickly. In
addition to the disc and other soft tissue damage, whiplash causes
spinal column misalignment and irritation, stretching, or impingement to
the nerves and spinal cord.
Other neck problems can be caused by poor
posture, work habits, and even birth trauma.
Neck problems and whiplash can cause
headaches, numbness, coldness, or "pins-and-needles" in the
face, chest, arms, wrists, or hands. They can also result in
anxiety, insomnia, low back and neck pain, ear ringing, dizziness,
hearing loss, eye pain, blurred vision, sensitivity to light, and other
