Whiplash is a painful condition causing a number of mobility concerns for those suffering from it. If you are suffering from whiplash or any type of neck pain, come in to see the team at Marron Wellness Center. Our goal is to help you determine the best type of treatment for this pain. In many cases, it may be a combination of holistic care that provides pain relief to you and whole-body healing.
Whiplash occurs as a result of rapid and forceful movement of the head and neck in a back to front or side to side motion. This is very common in car accidents from the rear, for example, because the force pushes the head forward rapidly and then backward, creating strain on the muscles and joints there. Many things can cause whiplash. Treatment should never be delayed since this type of intense force can often cause long-term and chronic pain if left untreated.
Because whiplash causes inflammation and can alter the alignment of the spinal column especially in the cervical spine, it is very important to treat this condition as soon as possible. We’ll likely recommend care that focuses on chiropractic adjustments. This allows for the spinal column to once again be aligned properly, reducing the stress and strain. In addition, we may recommend additional care to help encourage natural healing within the body. This may include physical therapy, acupuncture, massage, or spinal decompression. Each one of these services has the goal of aiding in the natural healing of the body to reduce pain.
When you visit your chiropractor in our Shrewsbury office, you will get a comprehensive exam for whiplash. We’ll develop a customized treatment plan to address the severity of your condition. Don’t ignore your neck pain. Instead, allow our skilled and experienced chiropractor to help you see healing. Call us today for an appointment and free consultation at 732-542-1272.
