What Is Whiplash?

Whiplash occurs when your neck is moved forward and backward suddenly, typically during an auto accident or a contact sport. The forceful motion typically extends the neck beyond its range of motion, which causes the tissues to tear. As a result you may experience a variety of symptoms, such as the following:

  • Neck pain
  • Neck stiffness
  • Headaches
  • Blurry vision
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Tingling
  • Numbness

Chiropractic Care for Whiplash

Since one of the main symptoms of whiplash is neck stiffness, treatment for this injury is different than other injuries. Generally, chiropractic adjustments are one of the first techniques implemented. However, whiplash can neck movement painful and the primary focus is to provide pain relief, so the adjustments are typically utilized later.

To make movement more comfortable, our chiropractor utilizes soft tissue techniques, such as therapeutic massage and cold laser therapy to reduce inflammation, help the tissues heal, and increase your range of motion. Therapeutic exercises are also used at the beginning of treatment to help speed up the recovery process. These exercises can be performed both in the office and at home.

Once you can freely move your neck, our chiropractor can fully assess your cervical spine for any additional injuries and the severity of whiplash. Afterward, we can determine which techniques would be best suited for your condition. Chiropractic adjustments are a primary treatment, as they can properly align your spine and take pressure off of the nerves and muscles. We may also use decompression therapy, which can alleviate pressure from the discs and reduce nerve compression.
