Relief From Whiplash Pain

A Whiplash Injury is far too common following a trauma such as an auto collision. The term whiplash was first coined in 1928. At that time most whiplash neck injuries were caused by train accidents where sudden acceleration and deceleration resulted in the head whipping backward and forward. Your body may be put into a weakened state and soft tissue damage can occur. At Nokomis Chiropractic and Wellness& and Wellness in Minneapolis, MN treatment for whiplash often includes massage and other therapies in addition to the spinal adjustment.

What Causes A Whiplash Injury?

Whiplash Injuries may occur during a high impact event such as a Car Accident, Contact Sports injury, a serious fall or another form of Collision. The injury involves both the soft tissues and vertebrae. Soft Tissue damage may include muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerve roots. Damage usually happens when the body is hit from behind and the head travels rapidly backward and bones in the lower neck become hyperextended putting the body in a weakened state.

Treatment For Whiplash Injuries

Chiropractic Care is a very effective treatment for many whiplash injuries. Doctors of Chiropractic are specially trained to diagnose and treat whiplash with therapies including Spinal Manipulation, Exercise and Massage Therapy.

Whiplash side effects may seem minor at first but they cause your spine to become misaligned and can lead to chronic pain and other issues if the misalignment is not corrected by a skilled chiropractor. It is crucial that you be evaluated by a Licensed Chiropractor when whiplash is suspected. This is necessary even if symptoms have not yet become evident. Painful symptoms may not arise for days, weeks or even months. By waiting there could be permanent damage.
