In this video, Dr. Keith Lavender, a certified Advanced Muscle Integration Technique practitioner is testing Lorry, assessing the muscles that are not functioning after she had sustained a whiplash in a recent auto accident. Notice she has no strength in the neck muscles to resist even the slightest force. Compare to the next video after treatment and see the difference in strength!
Whiplash injuries are most often are thought of in connection with auto accidents but also occur in contact sports, falls, or traumas with hits to the body or the head areas. Any abrupt jolts or impacts to the body that causes a forceful, rapid front and backward or rotation motion of the head can cause a whiplash. Chiropractic and Whiplash Gilbert AZ
After an accident or injury, it is not uncommon for symptoms to take a few days to occur. Common indications of whiplash are weakness in the neck, pain, stiffness, limited range of motion, headaches, mid or low back pain, pain or numbness in the arms or hands. Damage to a car in an accident is NOT an indication of trauma to the body. Impact speeds of as little as 5mph can cause neck strains, sprains or whiplashes. Injuries left untreated can cause pain, limited range of motion and possible future spinal degeneration.
