Our chiropractors will evaluate the health of your entire spine, not just one section. The exact course of treatment will depend on the severity of the injury. In the acute phase, reducing inflammation in the soft tissues of the neck is the first priority. Cryotherapy, ultrasound or gentle stretching may be applied.
As inflammation decreases, spinal manipulation, physical therapy, trigger point therapy and other modalities that can help restore normal motion to the neck joints and muscles will be used. Chiropractic care offers a non-invasive, drug-free way to not only decrease the pain of whiplash, but to treat the source of injury.
Please feel free to call our office if you have more questions about the symptoms or treatment of whiplash, If you’ve been in a car accident or other traumatic accident, don’t wait to have a thorough examination. Early treatment of an injury can prevent further pain and possible complications in the future.
