Chiropractic Treatments for Whiplash

The tragic result of uncorrected trauma.

Collisions that occur during sporting events, slips, falls or
automobile crashes can all have a damaging effect on your
neck and back. These types of collision-related injuries are
often called a “whiplash.”

The resulting instability of the spine and soft tissues can
contribute to headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, pain in the shoulders, arms and
hands, reduced ability to turn and bend, and low back problems. As the body attempts
to adapt, symptoms may not appear until weeks or even months later.

The chiropractic approach to these types of injuries is to use specific chiropractic
adjustments to help normalize spinal function. After a thorough case history and
examination, the doctor will recommend a series of visits to help restore proper motion
and position of spinal bones. If caught early enough, inflammation can be reduced and
scar tissue can often be minimized.

Consult a Doctor of Chiropractic before depending upon addictive pain medication,
enduring constant whiplash-related headaches or submitting to surgery.

Most auto-related whiplash injuries occur when a car is stopped and occupants are
unaware that they are about to be hit from the side or from behind.

Occupants often suffer more than the car.

Whiplash is most commonly received from riding in a car that is struck from behind or
that collides with another object. When the head is suddenly jerked back and forth
beyond its normal limits, the muscles and ligaments supporting the head and spine  
can be stretched or torn. The soft, pulpy discs between spinal bones can bulge, tear,
or rupture. Vertebrae can be forced out of their normal position, reducing range of
motion.


THE  CHIROPRACTIC  LIFESTYLE


Chiropractors are experts in the care of the bones, nerves, muscles and connective
tissues that make up about 60% of your body. All of the joints in your body are part of
this musculo-skeletal system and its optimal function is necessary for overall good
health. Ask your Doctor of Chiropractic for more information about a care program that
may include specific spinal adjustments, exercise recommendations, nutritional advice
or other conservative methods of care based on your health history, age, current
condition and lifestyle.
