NUCCA and Whiplash

NUCCA and Whiplash

Whiplash injuries can have long-lasting effects. Just a couple of these include migraines and vertigo. One study that involved 300 patients helped show a link between whiplash injuries and various health conditions. It also revealed benefits from the help of upper cervical chiropractic care. The Results of the Study While the study was conducted on 300 patients suffering from Meniere’s disease (a condition that has vertigo as its primary symptom), the patients all had something else in common. Each participant in the study had suffered whiplash as a result of a car accident or other head trauma. The whiplash-induced vertigo was rated at an average intensity of 8.5 out of 10 by the 300 participants in the study. After just 6 weeks of upper cervical chiropractic care, that figure had been reduced to 3 out of 10. Within 3 years, vertigo intensity was less than 1 out of 10. These outstanding results show the benefits that can come from upper cervical chiropractic care when lasting effects are the result of whiplash. As a result, the researchers recommend that vertigo patients who suffered trauma to the head or neck seek out the care of an upper cervical chiropractor.
