What Is Whiplash?
Whiplash is a type of neck injury typically caused by rapid and forceful back and forth movement of the neck. Auto injuries and sports injuries are the most common causes of whiplash. The name “whiplash” comes from the whipping-like movement of the neck that causes whiplash. Typical symptoms of whiplash include stiffness, neck pain, muscle tenderness, loss of full range of motion in the neck, headaches, fatigue, and dizziness. If you have been in an auto accident, it might take whiplash symptoms a few days to appear.
In your initial assessment with our chiropractor, we will perform a comprehensive inspection of your neck and spine. The initial assessment will set the course for the most suitable treatment for your symptoms. There is a lot of focus on spinal manipulation in chiropractic care, especially when treating whiplash. Our chiropractor is extremely familiar with every vertebra and disc of the neck and spine, and through the initial examination, we can determine if the vertebra or discs have been injured. Our chiropractor will then create a personalized treatment plan for you and your condition.
How Does Our Chiropractor Treat Whiplash?
Our chiropractor often performs a spinal manipulation to treat whiplash. By realigning the neck and spine, we can alleviate tension and pressure. The fundamental concept behind chiropractic adjustments is to assist the body to naturally heal itself by allowing proper blood circulation, alignment of the joints, and harmony between the different areas of the body. We also offer massage therapy, which can help your body recover after whiplash. Our chiropractor can provide you with stretching and strengthening exercises to return your full range of motion in your neck. You may need several sessions with our chiropractor depending on the severity of your condition.
