Pain and soreness from whiplash rarely goes unnoticed; the sudden jolt that causes your neck to move beyond its normal range of motion can injure your soft tissue. Motor vehicle accidents are a leading cause for whiplash, but damage can also occur from sports and other physical activities, falls, roller coasters, and assault. We provide professional and effective drug-free and nonsurgical whiplash treatment to reduce your pain, tension, and tightness.
Symptoms of Whiplash
Depending on the severity and cause of whiplash, people may experience different symptoms relating to their injury. The most prevalent sign of whiplash is pain and stiffness in the neck muscles. You may also feel tender spots on your shoulders, muscle spasms on the back of your neck, and can develop a headache or migraines. In severe cases, whiplash may cause tinnitus, which is the perception of ringing and buzzing in the ears when no source of sound is present. Our knowledgeable chiropractor is experienced in relieving these symptoms with chiropractic adjustments and manual manipulations for top quality whiplash treatment.
How Chiropractic Care & Massage Therapy Can Help Whiplash
Because your neck is forced into such an unnatural position when whiplash occurs, it's important to restore it back to its original alignment in order to prevent additional injury or pain. Dr. Jamnik provides chiropractic adjustments such as manual manipulation and flexion distraction to realign your cervical spine, thus alleviating pressure and pain from your neck. Therapeutic massage is also a beneficial whiplash treatment due to relaxing the muscles and relieving tension. Our certified and licensed massage therapists use a hands-on approach to effectively break up scar tissue and adhesions in your neck while providing stress and pain relief. If your whiplash injury isn't treated properly, you could develop early spinal degeneration and arthritis.
