Whiplash

Whiplash (also called a neck sprain or strain) is caused by an abrupt jerking motion of the head which often occurs, but is not limited to, the result of a car accident. Symptoms may include neck pain and stiffness, headaches, pain and soreness in the shoulder or between the shoulder blades, and decreased mobility, and more.

Symptoms may take up to 24 hours after the initial trauma to appear, so it is important to get examined by a doctor as soon as possible after an accident or event that may have caused trauma to the neck and head. Medicine alone is not a reliable treatment for whiplash, as it only masks symptoms and provides an artificial and temporary sensation of feeling better.

Solution

Chiropractic care provides a healthy solution to this problem by:

  • Providing a doctor that specializes in determining the location of and correcting vertebral subluxations which are the result of whiplash (Chiropractors are the only doctors dedicated to the focus of correcting nerve interference)
  • Incorporation of physical therapy along with your chiropractic care, saving you time and money as you strengthen your muscles and slowly shift everything back into alignment
  • Providing increased nerve function through the proper realignment of the spine
  • Treating the actual cause and not just the symptoms of whiplash
  • Providing relief from pain and preventing further deterioration of nerve function
