What is an effective treatment for whiplash? Chiropractic care is an effective treatment for whiplash, to help reduce pain and improve overall mobility and range of motion. Other natural treatments like acupuncture, spinal decompression, physical therapy and laser therapy can also offer benefits for injuries caused by whiplash.
When you visit our chiropractic clinic, we will take a close look at your injuries and design a customized pain relief treatment plan that will allow you to get back to your normal daily routine.
Car Accident Injury
Car accidents are typically the first thing people consider when they think of a whiplash injury. Whiplash occurs when your neck snaps forward and backward rapidly, which is often what happens in an auto accident. When you have whiplash, you may experience acute pain and restricted movement that has an impact on even the smallest daily tasks.
When you come in with a car accident injury, our chiropractor will perform manual adjustments to realign vertebrae, relieve pressure between your discs and reduce inflammation. These gentle adjustments are usually performed using short lever thrusting motions with the arms.
Workplace injuries are common in just about every industry. If you’ve been hurt on the job and suspect that you may have whiplash, we can provide you with the natural treatment you need to get long-lasting results. Some of the most common work-related injuries relate to slips and falls, repetitive strain injuries or accidents that end up in broken bones, injured backs and similar injuries. If you’ve been hurt on the job, it’s important to get the medical attention you need as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the worse it will be for insurance purposes and for your long-term recovery.
Chiropractic care, physical therapy, laser therapy, spinal decompression and acupuncture can all be effective treatments if you’ve suffered whiplash due to a sports injury.
The fast action and body contact involved in many sports make whiplash a definite possibility and it’s wise to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Our chiropractor will examine your injuries and determine which line of natural treatment makes the most sense for a full recovery.
Regardless of how you’ve sustained your whiplash injury, it’s important to remember that masking the pain with medication is only a temporary fix. If you don’t address the underlying cause of your pain, wherever it happens to be, then the results will wear off as soon as the medication does. With our natural treatments, you can feel confident that we will fix the root cause of the pain for long-term relief, improved mobility and a better quality of life.
