Whiplash is a type of car accident injury that causes neck pain and other uncomfortable symptoms. Fortunately, our chiropractor in Wilmington, DE, provides the care you need to relieve your pain.
The powerful momentum of a car accident can cause painful soft tissue injuries. This is particularly true in a rear-end collision that causes your head to lurch backward, forward, and then forward again. This whipping motion of whiplash can injure the soft tissues of your neck, shoulders and upper back.
Whiplash symptoms may include:
Whiplash usually involves soft tissues, such as muscles and connective tissue, but the momentum of a car crash may push bones and joints out of position. In some cases, the misaligned bone can cause swelling that presses against nearby nerves, which then send pain signals to your brain.
If you have neck pain as the result of a car accident injury, you need Wilmington whiplash treatment. Depending on the cause of your neck pain, tissues injured, and severity of your symptoms, you may benefit from one or more treatments.
Wilmington whiplash treatment from Lodes Chiropractic Center may include chiropractic adjustments that realign bones and joints misplaced by the momentum of the accident. Chiropractic adjustments can also relieve pressure on pinched nerves to reduce pain.
Massage and low-level laser therapy from our chiropractor can ease soft tissue pain and promote healing there. Therapeutic stretches and exercises speed rehabilitation and optimize results.
