Whiplash treatment can vary depending on the severity of the injury but often includes physical therapy and over-the-counter pain medications. Each Whiplash treatment is catered to the individual and is based solely on the Chiropractors physical assessment of the individual and injury mechanism.
Treating whiplash with chiropractic is safe and effective. Whiplash can cause neck pain, back pain, headaches, radiating pain, pinched nerves and many other symptoms. Chiropractic is especially effective for treating whiplash because it works to reduce pain, speed healing and maintain range of motion of the spine.
Whiplash injuries are commonly seen by chiropractors for good reason. Since whiplash injures both the muscles and ligaments that move and support the joints in the neck and upper back, treating whiplash with chiropractic care is a natural fit. Whiplash injuries can go from acute to chronic easily without treatment so your actions regarding treatment following your accident can affect your health for the rest of your life.
