A traumatic injury from an auto accident, playing sports, or other mishap may result in whiplash or other health related concerns. When you work with East Brunswick car accident chiropractor in our office, we help you address the symptoms of whiplash, recover quickly from your injuries and stay well.
What is Whiplash?
Whiplash refers to a neck injury that was caused by the sudden loss of momentum from an auto accident or sudden impact. The sudden forward and backward motion of your head causes injuries to the muscles and nerves in your neck. This results in severe pain, restricted mobility and limitations in your ability to perform daily activities such as drive, exercise and work at the computer.
The symptoms of whiplash may not occur immediately after the accident. A sudden rush of adrenaline and other immediate physiological responses may prevent you from feeling the symptoms of the injury. It may take 24 to 48 hours before you notice the underlying concern.
Symptoms of Whiplash
The signs and symptoms of whiplash vary based on the severity of your injuries. However, certain symptoms of whiplash will affect your everyday activities.
The some of the most common symptoms of the injury include:
- Headaches or migraines
- Tension in your neck and shoulders
- Neck pain
- Limited range of motion in your neck
- Difficulty sleeping
- Tingling or numbness, particularly in your arms and hands
- Memory problems
In most cases if whiplash is detected early and treated properly, the neck can heal without permanent impairment. A variety of factors can influence the time it takes you to heal and the extent of your recovery. It can take several weeks or even months before you fully recover from the injuries. East Brunswick car accident chiropractor Dr. Ken Freedman has extensive experience in providing his patients with the guidance and assistance needed to recover as quickly as possible and at the lowest cost.

I’ve been going to chiropractors for years, but none of them came close to what Ken does. I was in extreme pain and had difficulty walking and riding my motorcycle. Ken would use his state of the art equipment and his over 30 years of training and knowledge to help me. I felt like I was his only patient. There never was a time issue. As long as I needed him was as long as he was willing to stay with me. He not only helped me get back on my motorcycle but balanced my body with orthotics. He also helped me lose weight through his ChiroTHIN program. I can’t say enough on how great Dr. Freedman is. If you have any kind of issues Ken listens and helps correct those issues. I highly recommend Dr. Freedman. Gerri B.
