Many people involved in auto accidents suffer from a condition called whiplash. This debilitating injury can lower your quality of life and lead to chronic pain. Unfortunately, symptoms of whiplash can be subtle, and many patients who experience whiplash don’t even realize that they’ve been injured. If you’re in a car accident, we encourage you to see our Henderson, NV chiropractor even if you don’t believe that it’s necessary. If you’re suffering from whiplash, our chiropractor can diagnose your condition and get you the treatment you need.
Symptoms of Whiplash
Below are some of the common symptoms of whiplash:
- Stiffness in the neck, shoulders and back
- Neck pain
- Limited mobility
- Blurred vision
What Our Chiropractor Can Do
At Anthem Chiropractic in Henderson, NV, our chiropractor can treat whiplash with natural, medication-free methods. The following techniques are common treatments that we use to help patients suffering from whiplash:
- Spinal manipulation. With this technique, we’ll realign the vertebrae of the spine to eliminate subluxations and return your spine to its original state. Spinal manipulation can be done by hand or with tools. Often, patients feel pain reduction quickly after treatment.
- Massage therapy. We use this treatment to loosen the muscles of the back and improve mobility. Massage therapy can also help relieve any anxiety you may be experiencing.
- Stretches and exercises. We’ll teach you how to perform stretches and exercises that can help strengthen and loosen your back, leg, arm and neck muscles. These stretches and exercises will improve your range of motion and relieve your pain. Many of our patients perform their stretches and exercises at home as well as the clinic, which can help speed the healing process.
