Chiropractic Treatment for Whiplash in San Antonio

Whiplash is a relatively common condition that happens when a person’s neck is jerked back and forth rapidly. Most cases of whiplash result from car accidents, but it can also happen during sports and falls. Chiropractic treatment can be very effective for whiplash, especially when started right away.

What is Whiplash?

Relatively rapid acceleration of the head followed by deceleration are required in order to provide the force necessary to cause whiplash. This is why it is most commonly associated with car accidents, especially ones in which the car is rear-ended. However, rarer causes of whiplash can include everything from amusement park rides to equestrian accidents.

The term whiplash is commonly applied to all soft tissue sprains and strains of the neck that are caused by high-velocity trauma. The rapid movement of the head stretches tendons and ligaments and causes damage. The damage can be minor, or relatively major. Common symptoms of whiplash include pain, neck stiffness, headache, tingling, and numbness.

Chiropractic Care for Whiplash Many people don’t have pain the same day that a whiplash injury occurs. However, whether you are in pain or not, going to the chiropractor immediately can help prevent the injury from becoming worse. Our chiropractor can diagnose your injury, provide you with a number of options for pain relief, and customize a plan for recovery.

Immediate treatment for pain and inflammation may include options such as ice, heat, and massage therapy. Injuries like these often cause muscles to go into spasm, which can cause tremendous pain. Relaxing these spasms can help you feel better right away.

Long-term treatment for whiplash usually includes corrective exercises, which help you stabilize and strengthen your neck as the injury heals. Because the body is a whole, treatment for problems in other parts of your body, especially the spine, may be helpful. A chiropractic adjustment can help with both pain and long-term healing if the whiplash is associated with a problem in the spine.
