Chiropractic Care for Whiplash Injury

Are you suffering from a Whiplash injury? Whiplash is a common injury that occurs when the head is rapidly jerked forward and then snapped back. This can cause damage to the neck and spine, resulting in pain, stiffness, and other symptoms. Chiropractic care can be an effective treatment option for whiplash.

During a chiropractic appointment for whiplash, the chiropractor will perform a thorough evaluation to identify any misalignments or areas of tension in the neck and spine. They may use a variety of techniques, including manual manipulation, joint mobilization, and soft tissue therapies, to help reduce inflammation and restore proper alignment to the affected area.

Chiropractors may also recommend therapeutic exercises and stretches to help manage whiplash and improve neck mobility. Additionally, they may provide lifestyle recommendations, such as ergonomic modifications to the patient’s work or home environment, to help prevent future episodes of pain.

What is Whiplash?

Whiplash is a common injury that can occur from a car accident, sports injury, or other sudden movements. This happens when the head is quickly twisted or bent backward and creates a strain on the neck. When this happens, your spine can be stretched or compressed and can result in damage to your ligaments, tendons, and muscles.

These events can also cause small (or large) misalignments in your spine, which is referred to as a subluxation. Subluxations can put pressure on your nerves and cause pain, numbness, tingling, weakness, and muscle spasms.

At our family chiropractic office in Houston, we offer comprehensive care following car accidents or other traumas to relieve symptoms from Whiplash injuries.

Common Causes of Whiplash Injuries

Whiplash can be caused by any event that puts an unordinary strain on the neck.

The risk of whiplash increases with age. People who do physically demanding work such as athletes, construction workers, mechanics, military personnel, etc., are all at a greater risk of getting this type of injury. Being involved in an accident that involves car crashes or other high-speed collisions is also a major risk factor

It is estimated that 1/3 of all car accidents involve whiplash injuries. According to some studies, as many as 90% of all individuals involved in car accidents have some type of neck pain after an accident. Certain factors can increase the risk for whiplash.

Symptoms of Whiplash Injuries

As a result of whiplash, many people experience headaches and migraines that can be difficult to treat. Whiplash also causes problems with your range of motion in the neck and shoulder area causing stiffness and discomfort.

Other whiplash symptoms include:

  • Pain
  • Stiffness
  • Muscle spasms
  • Headaches

  • Upper backaches
