Whiplash: no good for the neck

Whiplash, a term almost onomatopoeic in nature, evokes the visceral image of a cracking whip, vividly capturing the abrupt and forceful impact experienced by the neck during an unforeseen automobile collision. In the blink of an eye, the neck undergoes a rapid jarring, oscillating between forward-and-backward or side-to-side movements, resulting in damaged tissues and misaligned vertebrae. Even at seemingly modest speeds of impact, the aftermath can be profound, manifesting as severe pain, dizziness, headaches, and blurred vision. In the aftermath of such an incident, the immediate concern often transcends the bureaucratic processes of police reports or insurance claims. Instead, the paramount consideration becomes addressing the potential alteration to the spine caused by the accident.

Within our practice, we specialize in the targeted treatment of the structures and muscles profoundly affected by car accidents. Recognizing that proper spinal health hinges on the delicate balance and alignment of vertebrae and muscles, we confront whiplash as a formidable adversary capable of exceeding the spine’s tolerance for extreme movements. Ligaments strain, and vertebrae misalign under the impact, leading to a cascade of discomfort. Our approach involves employing spinal adjustments to meticulously restore proper alignment, alleviating any painful nerve impingements. Our commitment is to guide the cervical region back to its pre-accident state of alignment, facilitating the recovery of strained muscles.
