Tucson Whiplash Treatment
Chiropractic Care Following Whiplash Accidents
Have you recently suffered from whiplash? This common auto accident injury causes pain, limits the range of motion of the neck, and can keep you from doing your favorite activities. Chiropractic care can help with your whiplash injury through joint manipulation techniques.
What Is Whiplash?
Whiplash is caused by a sudden, forceful back-and-forth movement of the neck and is a common injury caused by rear-end accidents. Injuries may be a mild nuisance, or they can be completely debilitating. You may feel an aching pain in the front and/or back of the neck and a limited range of motion that prevents you from turning your head from side to side. When rest, ice, and over-the-counter painkillers aren’t working for you, it may be time to contact a chiropractor for persistent pain.
How Chiropractic Treatment Helps Whiplash Injuries
A chiropractor is uniquely qualified to address your spinal and musculoskeletal problems, including whiplash, without medication. Through manual therapies such as spinal manipulation, you can experience significant pain relief and improve the function of the neck and upper back. Chiropractic care focuses on muscle relaxation, stimulation, spinal manipulations, and educating patients on lifestyle changes they can make to help prevent further pain. Through gentle stretches and adjustments, your neck mobility can improve.
