Whiplash

Whiplash Car Accident

Whiplash occurs when a sudden force causes your neck’s ligaments and tendons to overstretch, causing micro-tears. While rear-end car accidents are notorious culprits for whiplash injuries, any impact that causes your head to snap back and forth can cause whiplash. If you are suffering from whiplash, contact our team at Brainard Chiropractic in Fremont. We can diagnose the root cause of your symptoms and provide a personalized treatment plan that’s right for you.

Symptoms of Whiplash

If whiplash is left untreated, it may lead to symptoms like:

  • Headaches
  • Neck pain and stiffness
  • Limited range of motion
  • Blurred vision
  • Dizziness
  • Tenderness in the neck

Since whiplash symptoms may take days and even weeks to manifest, you should see our Fremont chiropractor immediately after an auto accident for an early diagnosis. Chiropractors are trained to treat a wide range of conditions, including hidden injuries like whiplash.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help

The first step to treating whiplash is to diagnose the root cause of your symptoms. Our chiropractor will assess your medical history, ask you to describe your symptoms, and administer physical examinations to pinpoint the location of the pain. After a proper diagnosis, our chiropractor may provide treatment options like:

  • Spinal adjustment: This treatment aligns your spinal muscles, correcting subluxations that impede the optimal functioning of the nervous system. Chiropractic adjustments also promote your body’s self-healing process, reducing whiplash pain.
  • Massage therapy: This treatment relaxes your sore neck muscles and increases the healing rate by boosting blood circulation in the injured areas.
  • Lifestyle counseling: If your everyday activities put you at risk for worsening your symptoms, we can recommend lifestyle adjustments to eliminate the potential risks.
  • Stretching exercises: Neck stretching exercises reduce stiffness and pain and also add resilience to your neck muscles to prevent future injuries.
  • Nutritional counseling: Our chiropractor recommends a diet that reduces inflammation and hastens your healing process.
