If you were in a car crash, you may have whiplash. The impact from the accident injuries the neck’s soft tissue. Whiplash is also likely from rough contact sports like football.

Whether your neck pain has been short-term or chronic, chiropractic care is the answer. After an initial appointment and some diagnostic testing, the chiropractor will recommend techniques such as manipulations, spinal decompressions, and adjustments.
