Overview

Whiplash is a common injury that most often results from rear-end collisions, which cause the head and spine to whip backward and then forward rapidly. Whiplash can lead to missed work, inability to sleep, and inability to participate in daily activities. Chiropractic care is a proven method for caring for whiplash injuries, resulting in better health and a better quality of life.

Causes of Pain

Whiplash can severely damage the muscles, ligaments and tendons of the neck and back, as well as disturb the natural curve of the spine. In some cases, whiplash can lead to bulging discs. Pain from whiplash may radiate to the head, shoulders, arms, hands, mid-back and lower back.

Evaluation

A care plan begins with a thorough examination, during which a chiropractor evaluates the patient to learn about the person’s history and concerns. The chiropractor may also examine the patient’s skeletal structure, extremities and movement to look for abnormalities. In addition, the chiropractor may recommend an x-ray to obtain a clear view of the affected area. Once the underlying source of the problem has been identified, the chiropractor can tailor a comprehensive care plan based on the patient’s needs.

 

Care and Management

Typically, the care plan includes adjustment of the spine. Rehabilitative exercises and stretches designed to strengthen the spine and body may also be recommended. A complete chiropractic plan may also include other therapies, such as heat and ice, electrical stimulation, laser therapy, and massage therapy. The chiropractor may recommend a wide range of lifestyle changes designed to optimize health.

Safe, Noninvasive Care

Chiropractic care is a safe, noninvasive form of care that can be beneficial for patients who have back pain and associated conditions. A continuing care plan may be recommended to ensure long-lasting benefits.
