Chiropractic Treatment for Whiplash in Burbank
Whiplash is the rapid movement of the neck forwards and backwards caused by some sort of trauma. Believe it or not, Burbank has many auto accidents each day resulting in Whiplash and other issues associated with car crashes. More often than not Whiplash is caused by a car accident, but that does not mean a slip and fall injury can’t cause one as well. The sooner you can have an evaluation and begin treatment, the less time it will take to help reduce symptoms and decrease recovery time.
A few symptoms patients with whiplash might experience include:
- Joint restriction
- Numbness or tingling possibly caused by a pinched nerve
- Neck Pain
- Back pain
Chiropractic Care for Whiplash
Chiropractic care can help with whiplash by helping to reduce inflammation with spinal manipulation, along with other various techniques and modalities, to help restore spinal motion within the joints in the neck. This is to help re-induce motion within your joints and take pressure off of the surrounding structures, including the muscles and nerves, to allow better communication within the body. Proper Chiropractic Care will help to prevent muscle spasms, soreness, numbness/tingling, and headaches that is commonly associated with Whiplash whether or not is is caused by an auto accident or a ‘slip and fall’ type injury.
