The Benefits of Chiropractic for Treating Whiplash Pain or Discomfort
If you’ve been in any type of motor vehicle accident, from a fender-bender to a high-impact collision, it’s likely that you’ve suffered some level of whiplash injury. Whiplash occurs when your body is in movement (in a motor vehicle traveling down the road, for example) and you make impact with another vehicle or object. The force of the impact causes your body to hurtle forward, but your seat belt restrains you. That causes your head to snap violently forward and back, much like the action of a whip. In the process, you can strain or tear muscles or other connective tissue and suffer tissue and cell damage. That’s why whiplash is one of the most painful and debilitating types of trauma.
Chiropractic is particularly effective at relieving the pain and discomfort that typically come with any type of whiplash injury. The common complaints associated with whiplash include:
- Neck pain
- Stiffness in shoulders, neck and back
- Muscle spasms in arms and shoulders
Chiropractic helps realign your spine, reducing inflammation and swelling, and improving blood flow, which is key to healing. It also alleviates pressure on nerves and nerve endings, helping restore mobility and flexibility.
