Wayne Chiropractic Office Helps Whiplash

Whiplash Treatment

One of the most common injuries that people suffer from after an auto accident in Wayne is whiplash. When a chiropractor books an appointment to see a patient after a car accident, it is often to treat the pain that results from a whiplash injury.

What Is Whiplash?

Whiplash is a term that is used by the medical profession to describe a neck injury that occurs as the result of a car accident. Being hit from behind or “rear-ended” is one of the most common type of auto accidents and the one most likely to produce whiplash. When you are hit from behind, the head whips back and then forward, causing the injury.

How Is It Diagnosed?

When a Wayne chiropractic office diagnoses a whiplash injury, your entire spine will be evaluated to ensure the only injury is in the neck. They will look for any areas that display poor range of motion, muscle spasm, general weakness, and pain. In the acute phase, you probably won’t be able to turn your head comfortably and your head may hurt. Your chiropractor will also feel around your neck and back looking for tender spots and tightness.

Chiropractic Treatment for Whiplash

When whiplash is still in the acute stage, a chiropractor may use gentle stretching, ultrasound, and other techniques in an effort to reduce inflammation. You might also be advised to apply ice in order to reduce the swelling. After the initial swelling has subsided and the pain lessens, the treatment will turn to spinal manipulation to restore the normal blood flow and motion to your neck.
No one likes the thought of getting into a car accident, but you have little control over being hit from behind when you’re driving. If you think you may have whiplash, the key is to seek attention as soon as possible. If you’re not in a medical emergency, book an appointment with our team at Chiropractic Spine Center so we can assess the situation and get started on the appropriate chiropractic treatment.

"After years of competitive sports, I thought that my knee pain was something I should expect. I could not have guessed that working with Dr. Glazer to align my back and hips could correct old injuries. Injuries that I assumed were par for the course. I only wish I had come to see him ten years sooner.."

Simona

"Within an hour of his adjustment I’m 90% free of symptoms, then within 3 hours they are gone completely. It is nothing short of amazing. I will continue to recommend Dr. Glazer to everyone I know."

Ann

"Dr. Ted is simply the best Chiropractor on the Mainline. I went to his office because I fell and couldn’t walk without a lot of pain. After the first treatment, I felt so much better. Now, about 3 weeks later, I am pain-free. Dr. Ted is so caring, gentle, and knowledgeable about all kinds of injuries."
