Whiplash Treatments Available
Whiplash treatment is meant to manage the pain and reinstate your motion range. Some of the most popular treatments for whiplash include:
Our chiropractor performs adjustments to gently provide relief from whiplash symptoms. Any event capable of causing whiplash is likely to also cause numerous misalignments and subtle damages throughout the body. Chiropractic adjustments align a person’s spine and skeletal structure to allow the body to heal itself and function at an optimal level.
Gently moving your neck can help ease stiffness and fasten the rehabilitation process. These are introduced in chiropractic care, and your therapist can recommend practices at home. It will mainly involve rotating your neck in both directions, rolling your shoulders, and tilting your head side to side.
Chiropractic care is one of the most effective whiplash treatments, especially for an auto injury. The rehabilitation process involves a combination of guided exercise and other treatments such as transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) and soft massages to help rid of pain and strengthen neck muscles.
