Whiplash is an injury to the cervical spine, characterized by the neck muscles and other soft tissues being hyper-extended by severe force. These tissues can become so stretched out that they tear and oftentimes become permanently damaged. Whiplash can also damage the intervertebral discs resting in the upper spine, causing them to bulge, tear, or even rupture.
Check out a few of the leading treatment options for whiplash below:
- Muscle relaxation or stimulation therapies that provide gentle and enduring relief
- Heat therapy
- Ice therapy
- Chiropractic spinal manipulation
- Simple range of motion techniques that improve the stability of the neck muscles while undoing much of the soft tissue damage suffered during the whiplash-inducing injury.
Chiropractic care for whiplash begins with a chiropractic evaluation that examines whether the patient needs immediate hospitalization because of the damage caused during the neck-damaging injury. If the patient is determined to not be at-risk for further tissue deterioration, then the holistic healing of chiropractic care is ready to show you what it's like to feel good again.
