One of the most common symptoms you may experience after a car accident is neck pain. In the majority of cases, this will fall into the category of a whiplash injury, and so the best thing to do is to look for a whiplash chiropractor Marin County. Through prompt, professional treatment, you greatly improve your chances of quick and complete recovery.
What Is Whiplash?
A whiplash injury is one resulting from the rapid snapping of your head back and forth, as commonly occurs when your vehicle is struck from behind in an accident. That movement can cause an array of injuries to the soft tissues surrounding your spine, and it can also cause your vertebrae to slip out of alignment.
Due to this combination of factors, symptoms of whiplash are many and varied. They can include anything from neck pain and stiffness to tingling and numbness radiating down your arms. Reduced range of motion and headaches are common with whiplash injuries as well, and since the symptoms don’t always appear right away, it’s important to visit a chiropractor even if you don’t think you’ve suffered a significant injury.
Chiropractic Neck Injury Treatment
Neck injury treatment often involves chiropractic adjustments in the form of spinal manipulation, along with therapies designed to reduce inflammation in the surrounding soft tissues. We offer a number of options in this regard, including cold laser therapy and whole body vibration therapy. Depending on the nature of your injury, we may also recommend some “blueprint” exercises that you can do at home to build on the progress you make during your in-office appointments.
