Whiplash occurs when you experience a neck injury due to an incident that causes a rapid, jerky back-and-forth movement of the neck which results in pain and injury that can sometimes turn chronic. Whiplash commonly occurs when a person's car is hit from behind (termed a rear-end auto accident).
Treatment for whiplash may vary, but all treatments will have the end goal of controlling, reducing, or eliminating pain, not to mention restoring you back to your normal range of motion in order to get you back to being your active self.
Chiropractic can play a huge role in getting you back to health, even if you're experiencing chronic whiplash. Chiropractic treatment has been shown to be instrumental in providing drug-free pain relief. Treatments will also help improve your range of motion and boost flexibility as well, and, in many cases, you will have more range of motion than when you first came into the office.
