Whiplash: What is it and How is it Treated?

Whiplash is a neck injury that happens as the result of a forceful, rapid, back and forth movement of the head, similar to what the cracking of a whip would look like. This type of harsh movement most commonly happens when there is a rear-end automobile accident and the force of the impact causes a person to experience a harsh jerking of the head. Whiplash can also occur as the result of abuse or a sports injury.

Although the condition can be painful, chiropractic adjustments are very effective for whiplash treatment and can help to quickly relieve your discomfort. Although healing from a whiplash injury takes time, many people do experience a full recovery. There are some people, however, that develop chronic issues after experiencing whiplash. Chiropractic care can help to manage ongoing pain and keep the condition from getting worse.

Treatment for Other Auto Injuries

Auto accidents can cause a lot of pain and discomfort that doesn’t necessarily manifest itself until days or even weeks after an accident. Auto accident injuries, if left untreated, can lead to a host of physical problems that may eventually become debilitating. Even if you don’t think you’re injured after an accident, it’s best to get a physical exam, and possibly x-rays, to ensure that there aren’t any hidden complications. At Advanced Family Chiropractic and Rehabilitation, we work with many patients who come in as a result of an accident and we are adept at quickly examining, diagnosing and treating any injuries, large or small, before they escalate into bigger physical problems.
