Whiplash is one of the most common auto accident injuries. Whiplash symptoms can also develop after a fall or a sports injury. Our team at SoCal Neck & Back and Injury Center, Lee Chiropractic, Inc. in Los Angeles offers quality chiropractic care for whiplash. If you are experiencing pain and suspect that it may be whiplash, contact one of our chiropractors to schedule a consultation. Let’s look at some of the common questions that we run into regarding whiplash.
Whiplash is caused by the rapid movement of the head and neck, often during a car accident, physical assault, or fall. These injuries can occur even when you are moving at a slow speed. The symptoms associated with whiplash include a tight neck, headaches, pain running down the extremities, and reduced range of motion.
If you do not receive treatment for whiplash, you could experience serious damage to your bones, ligaments, and discs in the future. You may struggle with pain for weeks, months, or even years as the condition worsens.
Whiplash can be treated, but you should act quickly to ensure that you are not left with long-lasting symptoms. One of our chiropractors will create a customized treatment plan that is designed to provide pain relief and support the healing process. Best of all, chiropractic care does not rely on pain medication or invasive procedures like surgery to produce results.
Spinal adjustments can be used to treat whiplash. The adjustments and spinal manipulation are both used to put your body into alignment, preventing muscle imbalances, and weakness. Improving your posture can be beneficial and often involves building strength and stretching the muscles. Better posture puts less strain on the muscles in the neck and shoulders.
