The definition of whiplash is; a neck injury due to forceful, rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck, like the cracking of a whip, most often occurring when one is rear ended in a car accident. And, although there is no specific cure for whiplash, chiropractic care can help get you feeling better and will help prevent further complications in the long run. In fact, when whiplash occurs and your joints go out of alignment, it only takes 2 weeks for degeneration of the spine to occur, no matter what age you are.
Whiplash unfortunately does not have a “basic treatment plan” because every case is different. It is important to get a further exam and possibly x-ray’s with a doctor of chiropractor to determine what treatment plan will help you out the best in a whiplash situation. At West End Chiropractic and Wellness the doctor’s like to know about any whip lash symptoms as soon as possible so they are able to determine the correct cause of pain.
