Frequently Asked Questions About Whiplash
If I Have Visited the Emergency Room, Do I Need to See a Chiropractor as Well?
Some people think that because they have already been to the ED, they don’t need to go to the chiropractor. This is not the case. Someone should still visit the chiropractor even if they saw a medical doctor in the emergency room. Often, the treatment options that people receive in the ER are only temporary. Pain medications wear off. The braces might not do the trick. This is not a long-term solution. A chiropractor knows how to look at the root cause of someone’s whiplash and treat it appropriately.
How Can a Chiropractor Help with Neck Pain?
The pain due to whiplash typically develops from an alignment issue of the cervical spine. Therefore, the treatment options are going to focus on this issue. A chiropractor will work to bring the spine back into alignment, restore optimal motion in the neck, and help with pain relief. In addition to adjustments, a chiropractor may also use massage therapy and corrective exercises to not only treat someone’s whiplash but prevent chronic disability or neck issues.
Can A Chiropractor Address My Other Health Issues from My Car Accident?
Particularly for those who have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, it is critical to allow a chiropractor to take a look at the entire accident and any injuries from top to bottom. Based on the position of the person in the car, and the location of the impact, the chiropractor will be able to anticipate other injuries someone might have suffered. Then, these injuries can be addressed accordingly. Rely on a trained chiropractor to not only treat any injuries someone might have suffered but addressing the health and healing of your body, in general, can prevent long-term symptoms and chronic complaints.
