Whiplash Could Permanently Impact Your Quality of Life

It only takes a second to develop whiplash. However, the effects can persist for a lifetime.

Your nervous system is quite delicate and sensitive. Whiplash can damage many of the nervous system’s key elements, including the bones of the spine and the discs between them, their muscles, nerves, and more.

Dr. Aaron Cain at Fish Creek Chiropractic has been treating car accident injury victims for more than 15 years and has helped numerous whiplash injury victims make full recoveries, avoiding chronic and long-term health issues.

If you’ve been in an auto accident, don’t put your body and health at risk. Schedule a free consultation with Dr. Cain today. The faster you seek treatment, the faster you can begin the recovery process.

Fish Creek Chiropractic offers whiplash treatment to help rehabilitate your nervous system after a whiplash injury.

Sudden neck movements, particularly back-and-forth movements, can injure the fragile structure of the spine and its surrounding tissues. We call this kind of injury “whiplash” for the way the head snaps like the end of a whip.

Whiplash injuries are common when you are suddenly stopped after moving quickly, or when you are quickly and forcibly moved from a stationary position. Car accidents are one of the most common causes of whiplash.

In some cases, with treatment, patients recover from whiplash within a few weeks. However, the effects of whiplash can last for years.

Symptoms of whiplash may include:

  • Headaches
  • Tingling in the arms
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness

Because symptoms of a whiplash injury can take weeks or months to manifest, it is easy to dismiss your injury as something minor. Too often, people don’t seek treatment following a car accident because they don’t feel hurt. By far, the most common injury to the neck is a whiplash injury.

Whiplash Recovery Through Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic treatment can be incredibly beneficial to patients suffering from whiplash. A study found that 93% of patients’ whiplash symptoms improved after chiropractic care.

Whiplash can affect different components of your musculoskeletal system, so each treatment plan is unique to our patient’s needs. Generally speaking, chiropractic treatments for whiplash may include:

  • Manipulating affected joints to increase mobility & encourage healing
  • Alleviating muscle tension
  • Alleviating pain
  • Reducing injury and stress to the discs

Building a Plan for Long-Term Relief

Pain and poor mobility from whiplash are just symptoms of larger underlying problems. We treat your symptoms by targeting the source, which can prevent more symptoms from developing later on.

Fish Creek Chiropractic approaches chiropractic care in a 3-step system.

Your first appointment will be a thorough assessment. We’ll start by asking about your injury, your symptoms, and your concerns. Next, we will perform a full-body evaluation. This evaluation allows us to find the source of your symptoms. If necessary, we may order X-rays, which we can provide in-house.

Once we have discovered the root of your symptoms, we will develop a treatment schedule. Through regular adjustments, we work on correcting the issues causing your symptoms, restoring your range of motion, and reducing your pain.

We believe that prevention is the best medicine. Our team will create an ongoing care plan for you. This customized program is designed to keep your body working at peak efficiency, preventing overuse and reducing the risk of further injuries.
