Whiplash Treatment at Back To Basics Chiropractic, Your Trusted Kennewick Chiropractors
Whiplash is a serious health concern, one that impacts many people during and after a car accident. It can also occur in a physical assault or sports injury. The neck's vertebrae and muscles receive traumatic damage as a result of an accident. What many people don't recognize is the importance of seeking out more advanced whiplash treatment. When you visit your Kennewick chiropractors at Back To Basics Chiropractic, we'll create a customized treatment plan to address your pain.
What Can We Do to Improve Whiplash?
If you've been diagnosed with or you believe you suffer from whiplash, your first step should be to schedule a consultation with our chiropractor. You'll receive one-on-one care to help you understand where the concern is so we can then customize a treatment plan for you. That plan may include a variety of holistic treatments aimed at reducing inflammation and improving overall pain in this area.
Whiplash and general neck pain can be improved with the help of chiropractic adjustments. The alignment of the cervical vertebrae often leads to significant pain. The nerve roots here become damaged or compressed. Adjustments work to realign the vertebrae to reduce that compression and stop the pain. We'll use a variety of adjustment types, based on your underlying needs.
The muscles and ligaments in the neck can become torn or damaged enough to cause significant pain. This causes swelling and inflammation. Massage therapy helps to alleviate this by encouraging blood flow to the impacted area. This helps to reduce pain, but also encourages faster healing, giving you movement back sooner.
We may recommend additional types of holistic care. For example, corrective exercises can help to strengthen the muscles in this area, helping to give them more ability to heal faster. Ergonomic and lifestyle changes may be recommended.
