Whiplash Treatment in Wheat Ridge
Whiplash injury happens quickly, but can cause years of neck pain, numbness, tingling and other symptoms without prompt treatment. And although it’s the most common car accident injury, whiplash can also be a daily or sports injury. Schedule an appointment with your Wheat Ridge chiropractor at Well Beings Chiropractic Family Health for diagnosis, treatment, relief and recovery.
Whiplash Neck Injury: Causes and Symptoms
Whiplash injury occurs when the head suddenly shifts forward and backward, or side-to-side, such as in an auto accident, a sudden slip on a wet floor, or while playing sports. This sudden motion overextends neck ligaments, muscles and tendons, misaligns vertebrae and compresses discs, all of which pinch nerves. It’s a multifaceted injury that requires prompt treatment to prevent long-term symptoms.
Unfortunately, whiplash may not present symptoms until hours or days after the incident, making it hard for people to link the incident to their pain. Sometimes people suffer symptoms like these long before they seek appropriate treatment:
- Neck pain and stiffness
- Numbness and tingling in the arms and hands
- Headaches and migraines
- Dizziness and fatigue
- Pain, stiffness or tenderness in upper back and shoulders
- Jaw (TMJ) or face pain
Our chiropractor helps patients throughout Lakewood, Wheat Ridge and Edgewater get proper diagnosis that leads to effective, natural whiplash treatment that brings relief and recovery.
Wheat Ridge Chiropractic Care for Whiplash Pain Relief and Recovery
The faster a patient comes in for diagnosis and chiropractic care, the less long-term pain they are likely to suffer from a whiplash injury. Chiropractic care corrects spinal misalignments that occurred during the injury, which relieves pinched nerves, providing relief for pain, numbness, tingling and the other symptoms associated with whiplash. It also helps relax strained muscles and soft tissues so they can heal. This relieves the stiffness and helps the neck and connected tissues regain range of motion.
Even if you have suffered these symptoms and the injury occurred weeks or months ago, our chiropractor can still provide treatment that leads to lasting relief and recovery.
