Whiplash is a neck injury from a quick forward and backward motion caused by trauma. In many cases, this can be brought on by a car accident. A whiplash injury causes pain, restricted movement, and stiffness in your neck. You don’t have to live with reduced mobility and pain! The doctors at Balance Family Chiropractic are skilled in chiropractic care that can treat whiplash as well as other symptoms from an active lifestyle.
Our doctors will evaluate your entire spine, even if you just have pain in your neck, to address all potential problem areas in your body. Other areas of your spine could be impacted by trauma like a car accident, even if only your neck hurts right now.
Soon after you come into our office for whiplash treatment, we work on reducing inflammation in the area. Depending on your specific whiplash symptoms, the doctors may first stretch the neck muscles or recommend applying ice at home to reduce swelling. After we reduce inflammation and your mobility returns, our doctors will then adjust the cervical spine through gentle, non-invasive spinal manipulations to restore normal motion and alleviate pressure from a misalignment in the spine.
Chiropractic care can be a great way to manage and relieve your pain from whiplash related trauma. A chiropractic adjustment is a safe, non-invasive, non-addictive alternative to prescription and over the counter medications which is how people often try to manage their pain. Adjustments are gentle manipulations that realign the spine to relieve pinched nerves that cause inflammation. Adjustments also improve the overall function of joints and the nervous system while reducing pain and discomfort.
Our doctors understand the pain and discomfort that whiplash causes, that’s why we approach every case gently with the utmost care. To see if chiropractic care is right for your condition, the doctors at Balance Family Chiropractic will perform a consultation and examination to fully evaluate your body’s needs and abilities. You don’t have to live your life with extreme neck pain, call Balance Family today to increase your overall wellness!
