Whiplash is a neck injury. It typically occurs during car accidents when the head is forcefully whipped back and forth. This results in sprains and strains of all the soft tissues in the neck. If the jolting is severe enough, it can misalign the vertebrae in your neck and lead to a permanent loss of range of motion if the injury is left untreated. Here at Campbell Chiropractic, we can diagnose the severity of your neck and back injuries and offer treatment options that will provide you with auto injury pain relief.
Car accidents cause a variety of musculoskeletal injuries even if you do not notice any visible cuts or bruises directly after the accident. In fact, most car accident injuries do not produce noticeable symptoms until several hours after the accident.
Back and Neck Pain
Chiropractic care is an effective way to lower neck pain and improve the range of motion of your neck. We typically treat whiplash with a combination of spinal adjustments, massage therapy and exercises and stretches that you can do at home in order to help you with auto injury pain relief.
Spinal adjustments treat whiplash by restoring the curvature of your cervical vertebrae. This removes the pressure from your nerves and soft tissues while reducing localized inflammation. Massage therapy is beneficial for reducing back and neck pain by relaxing your muscles and ligaments. In order to restore the range of motion and strength in your upper back and neck, we may also recommend certain stretches and exercises that you can perform in our office and at home.
To schedule a chiropractic care appointment to evaluate and treat whiplash after an auto accident, call us at 303-663-8365.
