Kare Clinic Chiropractors are expertly trained in treating whiplash is defined as an injury to the neck that occurs as a result of severe acceleration and deceleration. Most serious football injuries occur due to axial compression of the cervical spine. What this means, is when a player drops the head to tackle or block an opponent it flexes the cervical spine and the cervical lordosis (or abnormal forward curvature of the spine), flattening the back and bypassing the shock absorbing capacities of the spine. This can result in back, head and neck injuries in football players.
