Whiplash is commonly associated with rear-end car accidents but can also result from sports injuries, falls, and other traumatic incidents. Visit the Chiropractic Centers of Drs. Campanella & Olivacz in Havre De Grace or Bel Air, MD, to get holistic chiropractic treatment.
What Is Whiplash?
This condition occurs when your head snaps back and forth at high speed, like when you get hit from behind in a car accident. The result is strained neck muscles that cause a sore neck and shoulders. Several people usually report feeling it a few days or more after the accident.
People can rest it off and take over-the-counter pain relievers while applying ice to the area. Yet, some underlying issues can make it worse.
Symptoms of Whiplash
Whiplash symptoms can vary in severity and may not appear immediately after the injury. Common symptoms include the following listed below:
- Neck pain
- Pain in between the shoulder blades
- Tingling or numbness in the arms or hands
What Can Our Chiropractor Do?
Our chiropractor can adjust your spine and realign it to help with your pain. If you opt for immediate treatment, you can prevent certain conditions that could become long-term, like migraines, chronic pain, and arthritis. These adjustments will keep your inflammation down and improve your circulation to heal faster.
How Does the Treatment Feel?
Treatment is virtually painless. Patients reported feeling gentle pressure while our chiropractor did the job. Our practice uses spinal adjustments, hot or cold therapy, and some massage. It's a process that will leave you feeling much better.
Use chiropractic care with other aspects of your healing journey, like stretching or exercise. The goal is to align your spine so your nervous system works at peak level. Even a small misalignment can hinder your balance.
We will do a thorough diagnostic session to determine the best action. Our chiropractic care will return you to daily life feeling refreshed and adjusted.
