More than 2 million Americans suffer from whiplash each year. It’s a painful – and oftentimes protracted – condition, and if left untreated can have long-term implications.
What is whiplash?
Whiplash is another word for neck strain. It happens when your neck’s muscles get pulled through sudden impact… And the outcome is painful. Many whiplash victims get their condition from:
- Car accidents
- Sports injuries
- Amusement rides
How can I treat it?
There’s a common misconception that whiplash only affects your neck. In fact, it can have a ripple effect on your connective tissue, muscles, and nervous system. The takeaway? An ice pack on your neck isn’t going to cut it.
We deliver chiropractic care to the Raleigh community that treats whiplash by honing in on your body’s response to trauma. By assessing your symptoms, your age and health, and your physical wellbeing, we can deliver a holistic treatment plan. This includes:
- Muscle treatment: After analyzing your individual response to whiplash, we may relax or stimulate your muscles to ease pain and promote healing.
- Adjustments: We use spinal manipulation to work the affected joint back into place. This careful process will lessen soreness and restore your body.
- Exercise: Sometimes, a prescribed set of exercise routines will deliver long-term healing. McKenzie exercises were developed specifically to combat whiplash injuries.
