How Can a Chiropractor Help With a Whiplash Injury?

How Can a Chiropractor Help With a Whiplash Injury?

Whiplash, which commonly occurs in car accidents, is a type of injury that happens when the head is whipped quickly from one position to the next, causing strain to the ligaments, tendons and muscles as well as misalignment of the bones in the neck and upper back. Chiropractic treatment can help provide the right stability for the neck so that it can heal after a whiplash event.

Treating Whiplash with Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care focuses on fixing vertebral subluxation, or the moving of the cervical vertebrae, the bones in the spine, from their ideal position. Subluxation causes ongoing problems with pain as the nerves to the improperly positioned bones are pinched and unable to function properly.

So how can a chiropractor help? At Rumely Family Chiropractic, your chiropractor will perform gentle adjustments to realign the neck to promote your body's natural healing abilities. We will then use massage therapy and mild exercises, including stretching, to allow the neck to heal completely. Because your spine will be properly aligned, your body will be in balance and the connective tissue that was injured will be able to heal more quickly.

Whiplash treatment often requires a series of adjustments to ensure that the body is fully equipped to heal and the spine stays in the right alignment.

Customized Whiplash Treatment Ensures Full Recovery

At our clinic, we tailor whiplash treatment to each individual patient's level of health and wellness. Some patients will require more treatment than others to ensure a full recovery. We will also provide education about nutritional supplements and at-home exercises that can speed recovery. Treatment will adjust as the patient heals to ensure full recovery without undue treatments or therapies. If you follow your chiropractor's orders and do what you are asked to do at home, you will be able to heal quickly with fewer visits to your chiropractor.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I got into a car accident. My first one ever in fact. I wasn't really sure where to turn or what to do, but I knew my back and neck were pretty messed up and I needed some help. I did a quick Google search and found exactly what I needed. The Rumley Family website was very professional appearing and they got back to me quickly. I started my treatment and felt like a part of the family from the get go. Treatment was consistent and they paid deep attention to where I actually hurt unlike some doctors that tell you what hurts when it doesn't. Im very satisfied and I would come back again"

  • ""They are very nice family and very generous"

    This year I recently got into a car accident with my boyfriend and we were referred to Rumley Family Chiropractic for treatment. They took great care of us each visit we went to and helped us get better over the months. They are a very nice family and very generous. We recommend this place better than any other place!"
