Whiplash is caused by a sudden forward or backward jerking motion of the head.
If you have ever been in a car accident, there is a good chance that you have had some form of whiplash injury; however, sports injuries and falls can also cause whiplash. Whiplash injuries can result in the following:
Faulty movement patterns
Disc bulge or herniation
Left untreated, whiplash can lead to conditions such as a reduced cervical curve, headaches, radiating pain caused by pinched nerves, and even early onset arthritis due to impaired joint mechanics. Fortunately chiropractic care can alleviate the pain and symptoms associated with whiplash.
Chiropractic adjustments can restore joint dysfunction by gently moving restricted vertebrae. At Miller Chiropractic Center, we have various muscle therapies to help rehab muscles including EMS, dry needling, and muscle scraping. We also have the latest FDA approved spinal decompression therapy to help the spinal column return to its proper position as well as treat bulging discs.
If you have ever suffered from a fall, car wreck, or sports injury in the past, call us today to get your spine checked!
If you have recently had a fall or motor vehicle accident and are experiencing swelling, nausea, blurred vision, or vomiting, please seek emergency medical treatment.
