What is Whiplash?
Whiplash is a condition in which the neck is forcefully thrust forward and then backwards in a “whipping motion” often due to car accidents in which the person is rear-ended. Whiplash can cause temporary immobility and pain in the neck. Symptoms can sometime last for several months and has the potential of causing long term damage and discomfort.
Whiplash Injury Treatments
Whiplash, while not usually life threatening, should be attended to soon after the incident to help ensure no further trauma to the tissue is sustained. When you arrive for your first appointment, our doctors will thoroughly assess your injury in order to determine the best course of therapy specific to your needs.
By using regenerative treatments such a PRP (platelet rich plasma) injections, stem cell therapy and chiropractic care, we offer most efficient and effective options to relieve your whiplash pain with long lasting effects. It may be recommended for you to undergo exercise therapy during sessions. The doctor will aide you in the proper execution of the exercises to ensure they are done properly so you can reduce the pain and increase mobility.
Whiplash symptoms will usually present themselves within the first 24 hours following the trauma, however, it is possible that the symptoms will appear later. If you experience any of the following symptoms, you are most likely suffering from whiplash and should seek treatment as soon as possible.
