What is Whiplash?

whiplash-treatment-complete-health

Whiplash is a specific kind of neck injury. It most often occurs after an auto accident but can happen during other activities such as sports or dancing. Most often, getting rear-ended is the primary incident that leads to whiplash. For example, if you stop at a stoplight and another driver hits your car from behind, you will likely experience whiplash.

The sudden impact on your vehicle causes your body to change direction at high speed instantly and without warning. Your body remains relatively still if you are wearing a seatbelt, while your neck jerks around quite a bit.

Before you even realize what is happening, it is already too late to brace yourself. You may find that you go from surprised to angry within seconds. Then later, you experience pain from the impact. Pain resulting from whiplash can take hours or several days to set in.

We encourage you to pay attention to how you feel post-accident. Understand that some injuries, including whiplash, can be especially elusive. It is important to seek chiropractic treatment for whiplash sooner rather than later, regardless of your current pain level.

Symptoms of Whiplash Include:

  • Headaches
  • Pain
  • Stiffness
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Jaw pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Dizziness
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability

Each accident and injury is unique, especially when it comes to whiplash. You may experience one or more of the symptoms listed above after your auto accident. Dr. Pitcairn treats patients in varying stages of discomfort. Whether you are having some minor or severe pain, chiropractic treatment for whiplash is the best way to heal and prevent prolonged injury.

How Will Chiropractic Care for Whiplash Help Me?

Chiropractors have been sought out by accident victims to treat whiplash of varying degrees. Dr. Pitcairn has worked with countless individuals throughout her career to help patients regain mobility, eliminate their pain, and achieve long-term recovery.

Your pain may not set in immediately after your accident, or even a few days later. That is why Dr. Pitcairn encourages patients to come in as soon as possible for a consultation after an accident. The sooner you seek treatment, the easier and quicker your recovery will be.

Chiropractic treatment for whiplash is helpful for many reasons. By working with Dr. Pitcairn, you can experience the following benefits:

Pain Relief

Pain pills are prescribed for acute injuries after car accidents, but they are not an effective long-term solution. These medications merely disguise the pain, rather than address the source of the discomfort and heal it. Chiropractic care is a non-invasive, holistic solution for whiplash that will help you achieve lasting relief without becoming dependent on narcotics.

Mobility Restoration

Whiplash may leave you feeling stiff. Restricted muscle movement from whiplash is common. You may experience limited mobility in your neck, as well as your shoulders or back. Chiropractic treatments will help you restore mobility and reduce soreness. Combining your chiropractic treatments with massage therapy also helps increase your mobility and decrease pain.

Targeted Adjustments

Chiropractic treatments target your areas of pain, as well as other areas that are contributing to the pain, whether you realize it or not. For example, while you may be experiencing whiplash, a misalignment in your spine from an auto accident may contribute to prolonged or intense pain in your neck. Dr. Pitcairn can determine if other areas of your body are negatively contributing to your whiplash pain.

Long-Term Relief

We know it is important for you to feel better as quickly as possible. Chiropractic treatment for whiplash is great for achieving relief now, as well as long-term. Dr. Pitcairn works with you to determine where and when your whiplash pain is most uncomfortable, address acute pain, and formulate a wellness plan for continued recovery and support.
