One of the most common personal injury problems that we treat is for patients who have suffered whiplash. Whiplash is most commonly caused by being struck from behind, whether in a car accident, a football tackle, or other situation. When the head is suddenly jerked back and forth beyond its normal limits, the muscles and ligaments supporting the spine can be over-stretched or torn.
Chiropractic treatment is one of the only proven effective forms of care in the treatment of chronic whiplash-related injuries. Through the use of carefully controlled pressures directed at the spine and various physical therapy modalities, combined with exercise and nutrition, whiplash sufferers typically have a better outcome. This is also known as chiropractic rehabilitation and is the unique domain of the chiropractic physician. Studies have demonstrated that without proper movement within the fixated spinal joints, osteoarthritis of the spine and nerve root complications may be accelerated. Children and adults alike can suffer from this type of personal injury, and we are able to treat both.
