Whiplash is a sprain or strain of the neck muscles and ligaments. The injury throws the neck out of alignment and causes loss of range of motion in the cervical vertebrae, severe headaches and neck stiffness. It occurs when the head and neck are whipped back and forth very rapidly, and the neck is extended beyond its normal range of motion.
Multi-pronged Approach to Auto Accident Injury Pain Relief
We offer a multi-pronged approach to pain relief after a sporting or auto accident injury that results in a severe strain of the neck. Chiropractic care, massage therapy and physical therapy can reduce your pain and heal your injury. Chiropractic care is essential for realigning the cervical vertebrae in your neck, which helps reduce pain, unpinch nerves and stop inflammation.
Massage therapy relaxes the muscles in your neck, further reduces inflammation and swelling and improves blood flow and oxygenation. It also makes the chiropractic adjustments last longer, which gives your body more time to heal.
Physical therapy helps further improve the range of motion in your neck through the use of therapeutic exercises, which strengthens injured muscles so that they are better able to support your head and neck.
When these treatments are combined, pain and discomfort are dramatically reduced and healing times are greatly improved.
Our Chiropractors in Sarasota can Treat and Heal Your Car Accident Injury
If you have recently been in a car accident or suspect that your neck has been moved beyond its normal range of motion, please contact our chiropractors in Sarasota for a thorough examination and diagnosis. There is no need to wait until your head is throbbing, and you can barely get out of bed. In fact, by the time you experience symptoms, scar tissue has already started to form and inflammation of the tendons and soft tissues of the neck has already started to occur, which can prolong recovery.
