Treating Whiplash Pain – Whiplash and Chiropractic Care
Many people suffering from the effects of whiplash are unaware of their injury at the time of the accident. There are so many vital nerves, muscles, and blood vessels located in the neck that even a minor sudden jolt can cause damage.
Whiplash occurs when the force of an auto accident knocks or whips the musculoskeletal system out of proper alignment. This abrupt movement also simultaneously strains neck muscles, causing more stiffness, soreness, and pain. Chiropractic adjustments relieve pressure on the nerves and muscles, while also bringing alignment back to the spine. Additional treatments, like medical massage therapy and personalized rehabilitation protocols, help to bring full range of motion back to the neck, back and extremities.
While medication helps to relieve pain, chiropractic care treats the underlying injury, bringing mobility back to the body. Remember, even a slight jolt to the neck that goes uncorrected can result in problems later on.
Accident injury pain symptoms include:
- Neck and back pain
- Shoulder pain
- Weakness in an upper or lower limb
- Jaw pain
- Facial pain
- Sleep disturbances
- Blurred vision
Integrating chiropractic care, massage therapy and customized rehabilitation protocols is the most effective way to manage these symptoms and support the body’s natural healing process. If you have recently been in an auto accident, we are here to help. Contact us today.
