Whiplash Treatment by Spine Pain Center
Whiplash is a neck injury that happens when the head abruptly moves backward and forward, like during rear-end vehicle collisions. Whiplash can also come from physical abuse, sports accidents like bungee jumping, and falls, slips, and trips. At Spine Pain Center, we can help. Our chiropractors can diagnose and treat injuries like whiplash using natural methods.
Whiplash injuries involve the muscles, ligaments, nerves, and tendons within your neck. Injuries from whiplash can heal after a few weeks, but some have persistent pain for several months or longer. Its symptoms range from mild to severe.
Auto accidents are the most typical causes of whiplash injuries. Even if you feel fine after an accident, it's prudent to seek immediate treatment. Pain from a whiplash injury may present itself weeks or even months after an accident.

How We Can Help
When you visit our chiropractors for chiropractic care at any one of our five locations, they begin with evaluating your entire spinal area, even if the pain is emanating from your neck after trauma. We will examine the whole spine cord, because it’s interconnected regions may get infected.
After diagnosis, our chiropractors may use spinal manipulation to align misaligned neck joints and put them in their correct positions. Muscle relaxation techniques can also be used to release muscle tension and promote blood circulation. We may also suggest corrective exercises to help strengthen your body and prevent future pain or injuries.
