Motor Vehicle Accidents

auto accident neck painWhiplash, sprains and strains are all common results of a car accident, and can result in varying degrees of damage to your neck and upper back. Receiving chiropractic care immediately following an accident can target this kind of damage and avoid postural issues and/or chronic pain.

Pain from whiplash originates from the abrupt jerking motion of the head, either backward or forward. Chiropractic treatment for whiplash, as well as other strains or sprains you may have sustained from a card accident, is unique to ever injury and is evaluated during the initial chiropractic exam.

Chiropractic targets the afflicted area by gently encouraging movement in the direction which it is restricted. The manipulation is gentle and slowly increases mobilization over a certain period of time, depending on the level of injury.

Other Means of Treating Whiplash, Sprains and Strains:

  • Muscle relaxation and/or stimulation is used to gently stretch out excessive tension in the muscle, ligament or tendon
  • Other therapies, such as Graston Technique, Active Release Therapy, and Massage Therapy are also used to achieve similar results as muscle relaxation and/or stimulation
  • Home stretches and exercises
  • Heat and ice therapy
  • Lifestyle changes
