Whiplash Treatment in Bloomington
Whiplash is one of the most common reasons people see a chiropractor, including our chiropractor in Bloomington. This is because it is the most common type of auto accident injury. Even a light rear ending or mild sideswipe can cause whiplash, which results in light to significant pain and stiffness in the neck. Here's what you need to know about whiplash, and how chiropractic care can help heal it.
Whiplash Explained By Your Bloomington Chiropractor
Whiplash happens when your head is thrown forward and then backward (or the reverse) with a large amount of force. While it is most commonly associated with auto accidents, people can get whiplash through any activity that throws the head around. It's been known to happen to people riding in bumper cars and riding on roller coasters at fairs and festivals. When the head is thrown around in this way, it can dislocate vertebrae, pinch nerves, and even tear muscles in the neck, all of which cause pain and/or stiffness to occur.
Whiplash is more than just pain and stiffness, too. Some of the other symptoms you may get if you're suffering from whiplash include:
Tingling, pain, numbness, and/or weakness in the arms and hands
Difficulty remembering things
How Does Chiropractic Care Help Treat and Heal Whiplash?
It is best to take a "whole body" approach to whiplash, since the injury can affect surrounding tissues with inflammation and referred pain. Since chiropractic care is a whole body approach, it is the perfect method to treat it. Our chiropractor will look at every facet of your injury and the effects it is having on other parts of your body, and develop a customized treatment plan just for you. Our way of healing is able to tackle many different issues at the same time. So, not only will chiropractic care treat your injury, relieve the pain, restore range of motion, and heal it, it will also improve your overall health, immunity, and strength.
Chiropractic care is also more than just spinal manipulations and adjustments. It also uses massage, physical therapy, customized exercises, spinal decompression, traction, nutritional counseling, and more. All of these things are useful in addressing whiplash and the problems that come with it, bringing you back to a state of perfect health and pain-free living once more. You may only need one treatment to get full relief, or you may need to come in several times a week for a few months or more to get the results you are aiming for, but with our help, you'll get there.
