Whiplash

We Provide Quality Chiropractic Care for a Quick & Effective Recovery

Don’t Settle for Pain in Your Neck

What is Whiplash and What Causes Whiplash?

Whiplash is an injury to the neck due to a sudden distortion or extension of the neck when the neck experiences a sudden acceleration-deceleration motion. Muscles in the neck and back are overextended and can lead to symptoms from mild to severe pain from stiffness and inflammation in muscles, tendons, joints, and ligaments. Headaches, migraines, fatigue, dizziness can lead to an overall feeling of being unwell.

Whiplash is usually the result of being rear-ended or hit at a high speed. However, whiplash can also happen with injuries related to horseback riding, bicycles, snowboarding, or falling from a higher level such as a stool, or even shaken baby syndrome.

Whiplash is a relatively common injury; however, it is often ignored or neglected due to a lack of understanding of the condition. While some symptoms can occur immediately after the injury, some symptoms are often are not felt until days later. The most common effects of whiplash are pain and stiffness in the neck, shoulders and back, headaches, pain and weakness in the arm, dizziness, and fatigue.

Stress-Free Recovery & Care

What to Expect During Whiplash Treatment at an Axcess Accident Center?

Throughout your treatment, we will use a variety of modalities to ensure that you are doing and getting everything you need to have the best recovery possible.

Whiplash Treatment can include:

  • Chiropractic Adjustments – to align your neck and spine.
  • Massage Therapy – Increase the circulation of blood through your muscles.
  • Decompression Therapy –  to stretch your neck muscles and reduce pain.
  • Rehabilitation Therapy – exercises and stretches to increase mobility and strengthen your muscles.
  • E-Stim with Supplemental Heat – to help relax and increase blood flow in your muscles and areas you experience pain.

While some physicians still encourage the use of a neck collar or brace, recent studies have been showing the importance of reducing pain while empowering the neck muscles to be strengthened for a better recovery, reducing the risk for chronic pain.
