Chiropractic and Whiplash

IMG_2035

Whiplash is an injury commonly caused by car accidents, and it can have a number of serious effects on your body.

What can whiplash cause?
⁃Headaches or migraines.
⁃Neck pain and stiffness.
⁃Pins and needles or numbness (typically in the arms and hands).
⁃Pain over the shoulders, shoulders or hands.

Good news!!

Chiropractic can be fantastic in helping improve the alignment, the pressure and nervous system function after whiplash events. The sooner the better when it comes to care. However, even if it has been 10/20/30 years (or longer) since the whiplash event occurred, it is never too late to return things to a more normal state. Remember, just because it is normal for you does not mean that it is normal!

How can Chiropractic care help?
⁃Reducing inflammation.
⁃Promote healing.
⁃Improve posture.
⁃Chiropractic care may help to reduce the risk of developing chronic pain or other health conditions related to whiplash.
