Whiplash is a common auto accident injury that can worsen over time if appropriate treatment is not received. You can experience neck pain and loss of range of motion. Our chiropractor in West Los Angeles and Brentwood area at BAC To Health Chiropractic Lifestyle offers effective whiplash treatments that can relieve your neck pain.
Whiplash are caused by a rapid forward and backward movement that often occurs during a high-impacted collision. During these incidents, the neck muscles, upper vertebrae, and nerves may become stretched and bruised, which can lead to neck pain, neck stiffness, poor mobility when moving the head, dizziness, and headaches. You may experience discomfort in the upper back, shoulder, or arms. Some people may also have poor concentration, depression, and sleep problems as a result of these injuries. Early treatment can help to reduce the risk of more severe symptoms.
Chiropractic Techniques to Help Whiplash
Chiropractic care for whiplash is generally designed on an individual basis. Our chiropractor may perform a manual adjustment to re-align spinal structures to release pressure on muscles and nerves. Muscle stimulation may be needed to improve function in the neck, and laser therapy can be used to aid healing. Our chiropractor may also suggest corrective exercises to strengthen your injured muscles for better flexibility and range of motion.
