Understanding Whiplash and Chiropractic Care
Whiplash occurs when your head quickly snaps forward and backward. The most common place whiplash happens is during a car accident when you are hit from behind or hit someone head on. The vehicle stops quickly, but your body continues to move forward and then is abruptly returned to the stopping point. When this happens, the muscles, bones and soft tissues in your neck experience trauma. They may be stretched, strained, pulled or moved out of place so this is why an examination following an accident is important. Our chiropractors determine how the whiplash is affecting you and listen to your symptoms which may include:
- Neck pain and tightness
- Inability to concentrate
- Vision difficulties
- Pain in your upper back
- Dizziness with or without nausea
If you feel any of the above symptoms, please contact Back to Basics Chiropractic immediately. Our chiropractors know that when you begin early treatment for whiplash, you are less likely to have lasting injuries. Our chiropractic plan includes gentle adjustments to the vertebrae of your back and neck. When the vertebrae are returned to a healthy alignment, your body begins to heal faster since circulation and nutrient flow are improved. We speak with you about a healthy eating plan that will boost recovery time and provide the nutrients the cells need to repair the damage caused by the accident. Our massage therapists concentrate on the muscle tissue by easing tension and eliminating any scar tissue that may occur as the muscles repair. Massage therapy also reduces inflammation by increasing circulation to and from your neck. Plus, massage is a powerful way to reduce any stress you are feeling as a result of the accident.
