What You Should Know About Whiplash
Effective treatment for whiplash? Whiplash can be successfully treated using several different natural treatments, including chiropractic care, physical therapy, massage therapy, acupuncture and spinal decompression. Our chiropractor will examine your entire spine to ensure there aren’t any contributing factors to your pain, then design a customized treatment plan to relieve your whiplash pain and improve your mobility so you can start feeling like yourself again.
Whiplash is an injury of the muscles in your neck, which occurs from the rapid forward and backward motion of the neck experienced in a collision. The condition causes acute neck pain and restricts movement of your cervical spine. If you believe you are hurting because of whiplash, you may want to visit our chiropractor who can provide effective non-surgical pain relief treatment options.
Car Accident Injury
To help you heal faster from whiplash or other auto accident injuries, our chiropractor works with you to reduce neck inflammation using various manual therapy techniques such as chiropractic adjustments. This involves gentle manipulations of the cervical spine. Gentle stretching techniques may also be used along with recommendations for topical applications for ice or heat. In addition to these procedures, we may also prescribe therapeutic exercises to help restore normal motion and reduce symptoms.
Other therapies offered at our chiropractic center to restore normal motion to your neck's facet joints include physical therapy, massage therapy, acupuncture, and spinal decompression. Using these techniques, we will help you return to your daily activities.
Workplace injuries are quite common. It's important to be mindful of the injuries you can potentially sustain in the job.
Some of the most common types of injuries at work include:
- Repetitive motions such as typing, packing boxes or chopping food, which can cause muscle strain and long-term conditions such as tendonitis.
- Slips and falls on a wet floor or uneven surface can easily cause damage to your musculoskeletal system.
- Overexertion caused by duties that require you to lift, pull, or carry heavy objects resulting in strained muscles, severe pain, and burnout.
If you've been damaged at work, our chiropractor can help. Treatment begins with a comprehensive examination of your entire body to pinpoint areas of restricted joint motion, disc injury, muscle spasm, and ligament injury. During your assessment, our chiropractor will also feel for tenderness, tightness, and how well your spinal joints move.
Chiropractic care is also effective for disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system caused by sports-related activities. Our chiropractic doctor will focus on injury prevention and performance enhancement for professional, amateur, and recreational athletes. Whether you have sprained your wrist, dislocated your shoulder or just knocked some spinal vertebrae out of alignment, we can help get you back on the field or the court as soon as possible.
Our comprehensive spectrum of services provides all-natural, integrated pain management services aimed at helping your body to heal for long term relief.
