Whiplash

Understanding Whiplash

Dealing with the aftermath of a car accident can be overwhelming, especially when faced with the discomforts of whiplash. Whether it’s hindering your daily tasks or restricting your ability to turn your head, untreated whiplash can lead to chronic pain. Seeking chiropractic care is a crucial step towards healing.

Whiplash occurs when the head is suddenly jolted forward or backward, causing the neck muscles to absorb immense pressure. This abnormal motion and force can result in difficulties and pain when moving the head, persisting for days or weeks after the incident. Neck pain may also indicate more severe conditions involving the cervical spine, muscles, ligaments, and soft tissues.

How Chiropractors Provide Relief

Chiropractic care for whiplash involves adjustments to gently move the affected joints in the restricted direction. This process enhances spinal mobility, increases range of motion, and improves the movement of adjacent muscles. These adjustments alleviate pain, soreness, and stiffness, allowing patients to regain the ability to turn and tilt their heads without discomfort.

During the initial examination, the chiropractor assesses the spinal column and identifies any subluxations, guiding the treatment approach. Gentle spinal adjustments realign misaligned vertebrae, relieving nerve pressure and enhancing blood flow in the affected area. Additional therapies such as traction, light stretches, and exercises may be recommended to expedite recovery and reduce pain and inflammation.
