Whiplash in Winter Park

auto injuries are commonly helped by seeing a chiropractor

If you have ever dealt with the symptoms of whiplash in Winter Park, you know how frustratingly painful it can be. Whiplash injuries are commonly associated with auto accidents. The abrupt, and sometimes violent, force that results from the vehicle suddenly stopping can cause severe head, neck and shoulder injuries. An abrupt stop to forward motion causes the head to propel forward and then snap backward. In most cases, the person tenses up as they prepare for impact. This increases the risk of injury because the muscles are working against the force of the motion. A patient who has been injured in an automobile accident can expect to receive gentle, but thorough, health care at a chiropractor's office. Adjustments are easily performed and offer fast, efficient relief of pain, inflammation and other forms of discomfort that often accompany injuries such as whiplash and strained muscles.

A successful whiplash rehabilitation necessitates a chiropractor who has experience treating the condition. Our staff is uniquely trained to assess and treat your whiplash effectively. It is imperative to begin treatment soon after an auto accident if you suspect you are injured. Even in cases where you feel fine, it is never a bad idea to get a preliminary assessment to avoid any symptoms from creeping up on you in the future.

Whiplash Options in Winter Park

Whiplash can be effectively treated with chiropractic care. Minor adjustments accompanied by massage therapy and mild exercise, like stretching can help a neck injury to heal. Depending on the severity of the injury, it may take several weeks to completely heal. Chiropractic adjustments help to restore balance within the body, realigning bones and connective tissue and alleviating the pain and inflammation that accompanies the injury. With each adjustment, circulation increases and the effects of the treatment will last for longer periods of time.

Nutritional supplements can also help alleviate symptoms like inflammation and pain. When the right nutrients are added to the treatment plan, they receive what they need to hasten the healing process. A chiropractor can create a treatment plan that offers everything the body needs to heal and regain its strength. At Rumley Family Chiropractic, P.A., our qualified practitioners are able to evaluate the severity of each injury and formulate a treatment that is customized to the patient. Many patients will show improvements after the first initial treatment, while others may require several visits.
