Chronic Pain Management
Chiropractic. It’s about restoring function and total health to your nervous system which coordinates every bodily function. In the case of a whiplash injury the work to be done is very specific and demands patience along with specific exercises. You may see amazing improvements with overall health and wellness through the whiplash process and become aware of the benefits of consistent chiropractic care .
Chiropractic treatment is unique to each whiplash injury because it is a very sensitive area and whiplash can be caused by a few different causes; muscle spasm/tightening; joint disruption; disrupted nerve signals and even disc displacement. The primary chiropractic exam for whiplash looks at each of the possibilities and a plan is made for proper treatment of the affected area of the neck. in most cases the neck area will be treated with adjustments and massage, gentle spinal manipulation gradually working the spine back to its optimum position and health.
Joint dysfunction that has developed will affect the muscles. This is when muscle tenseness and spasms (or over activity of the muscle) can develop causing an unfair amount of pain. The muscles necessitate whiplash treatment involving muscle relaxation or stimulation along with manipulation. When we first see somebody whop has suffered a whiplash injury, we first deal with the pain aspect. Nobody wants to suffer pain for any reason but neck pain can be quite intense. Once we have that under control we work to get things back to normal in the area and finally to creating a program that will nurture the neck to full health. Exercise is an important part of the recovery and we will provide a program to follow.
