Neck Pain and Whiplash

 

whiplash

Even when car accidents seem minor, there is a great deal of damage that can occur to the spine, especially the neck, through something called whiplash. Basically, it is when the head accelerates faster than the neck can support it and thus causing injury to the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints of the neck.

Chiropractors are specialists in treating non-surgical spine injuries and very commonly treat whiplash injuries from car accidents. The job of the chiropractor in helping his or her patients overcome the pain and disability associated with whiplash is to:

  • Diagnose the source of the pain
  • Treat the most important dysfunctions
  • Teach the patient to return to a more normal lifestyle
The likelihood of success is enhanced by a continued focus on restoring normal function. 93% percent of whiplash patients improve with chiropractic care.

The “whiplash” syndrome is a collection of symptoms produced as a result of injury of to the cervical spine. Here is the interesting thing, the scientific evidence shows that 43 percent of patients will suffer long-term symptoms following whiplash injury. More so, if the person still has symptoms after three months then there is almost a 90% chance that those will be permanent. The take home point: whiplash symptoms are real and they must be treated so you aren’t left with permanent pain and/or dysfunction.

Sport and Spine Rehab will be able to properly diagnose your condition by doing a thorough exam and x-rays. We will then provide a safe and effective treatment to help you get back to living your life the way you want!
