Chiropractic Southeast FL Man With Whiplash

Whiplash is one of the most prevalent injuries from car accidents in Southeast FL. When a chiropractor books a patient after a vehicle accident, it's usually to address whiplash discomfort. Learn how our Southeast FL chiropractor can help.


WHIPLASH: DEFINITION

Whiplash is a word used by doctors to describe a neck injury caused by an automobile collision. A rear-end collision is the most common sort of car accident and the most likely to cause whiplash. When smacked from behind, the head swings back and forward, often incurring damage.


HOW DOES A Southeast FL CHIROPRACTOR CHECK FOR WHIPLASH?

When a Southeast FL chiropractor diagnoses whiplash, they check your complete spine to be sure it's only your neck. They'll look for restricted mobility, muscular spasm, overall weakness, and discomfort. It may be difficult to turn your head comfortably and your head may be in pain. Your chiropractor will also check for tenderness and tightness in your neck and back.


WHIPLASH THERAPY

A chiropractor may employ mild stretching, ultrasound, and other treatments to alleviate inflammation in acute whiplash. Applying ice may also help minimize swelling. After the initial swelling and discomfort subside, spinal manipulation will be used to restore normal blood flow and motion to your neck.

Nobody wants to get in a vehicle accident, yet when driving, you have little control over being hit from behind. If you suspect whiplash, get medical assistance at once. For non-emergency situations, make an appointment with our team at Carswell Chiropractic & Athletic Performance Center so we can examine the condition and begin proper chiropractic care.
