What Can Chiropractic Care Do for Your Whiplash Car Accident Injury in Henderson?

Car accident injuries can be devastating. One type of injury in particular--whiplash--plagues car accident victims in Henderson and Las Vegas. If you're involved in a car accident, knowing the symptoms of whiplash and what chiropractic care can do for you can help you get back on your feet. At Anthem Chiropractic, we work hard to educate our patients about whiplash, so they can recognize the symptoms and know what to do in the event of an auto accident.

Why Do Car Accidents Cause Whiplash?

Whiplash, also known as neck strain, is an injury that can occur when the head jerks suddenly and unexpectedly. This is a frequent occurrence in car accidents, and may be most problematic for people who are in vehicles hit from behind.

Whiplash Symptoms Can Be Difficult to Recognize

Whiplash symptoms can seem unconnected to the car accident, and many people who suffer from whiplash don't realize at first that they've been injured. Symptoms of whiplash may not appear for hours or days after the incident. Some of the more obvious symptoms of whiplash include:

  • Pain
  • Tenderness
  • Muscle stiffness
  • Limited range of motion

In addition to these problems, a person suffering from whiplash may experience a variety of other symptoms, including:

  • Insomnia
  • Difficulty focusing or remembering things
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Irritability

Many of the above symptoms can be traced back to injury in the spine and the development of subluxations as a result of the auto accident.

Our Henderson Chiropractor Can Help

If you've recently been involved in a car accident, our chiropractor can help! At Anthem Chiropractic, we use the following techniques to treat whiplash:

  • Spinal adjustment. Spinal adjustment is a technique that realigns the vertebrae of the spine and eliminates subluxations. Spinal adjustment relieves pressure on the joints and reduces pain from your auto accident injury.
  • Spinal decompression. Spinal decompression is a technique that creates a vacuum around a herniated disc, which can help put the disc back into place.
  • Massage therapy. Massage therapy helps relax tense muscles and reduce muscle stiffness. For people suffering from whiplash, massage therapy helps restore proper movement in the spine and improve range of motion.
  • Stretches and exercises. Stretches and exercises can help speed the healing process and strengthen muscles that have become tight and stiff.
  • Nutritional counseling. Nutritional counseling services can help our patients maintain their energy as they heal from their injury.
  • Lifestyle advice. We help patients learn to make lifestyle changes that prevent further injury.

"I have had back problems and had 2 surgeries and wanting a 3rd. Dr. Day provided a multidisciplinary plan that included chiropractic therapies and pain management. Pain management provided some immediate relief but I had residual pain in my right leg. Steroid injections failed. Dr Day recommended decompression table therapy and from the 1st session my leg pain was relieved. I continue with the decompression table therapy to ensure pain relief and to keep surgery at bay. Thank you Dr. Day!"
