Chiropractic Care for Whiplash
If you are in a car accident, it is likely that you will incur some injuries. One of the most common auto accident injuries is whiplash. This causes neck pain and can be debilitating. It is important to seek treatment before it worsens. At Taber Chiropractic in Bowie, MD, our chiropractor offers natural treatment methods for whiplash to alleviate your pain and help your neck heal.
Whiplash is neck strain or a neck sprain that occurs when the neck is quickly forced forwards and backwards, like in a rear end car accident. Symptoms of whiplash include neck pain that becomes worse when you move, as well as neck stiffness, loss of range of motion, headaches, shoulder pain or tenderness, arm and back pain, and a tingling or numbness in your arms. Many times, whiplash does not present symptoms right away. It is common to experience pain within a few days of an auto accident. It is important to seek treatment after an accident and as soon as possible.
At Taber Chiropractic, we build custom care plans for each patient. Your individualized whiplash treatment plan may include:
- Spinal manipulation: We rely on various spinal manipulation techniques, we offer manual as well as gentle instrument adjustments, to treat your spine. It is important to restore joint flexibility in order to reduce pain and muscle spasm.
- Soft tissue therapy: This includes muscle stimulation, myofascial release, and more. These methods will help us rehabilitate and treat a range of issues, including tension in your muscles, sprains, strains, and tears. We also offer MLS laser therapy which is a top-of-the-line laser that is FDA cleared for pain, inflammation, and edema. One of the doctors personally experienced the benefits of MLS laser after a severe auto accident and spinal injury. Although highly beneficial, It is not covered by insurance at this time.
- Spinal decompression: Decompresses the discs providing pain relief.
- Corrective exercises: Stretching and strengthening exercises will improve your range of motion in your neck and speed up your recovery time.
Our chiropractor will determine what treatment will benefit you the most. You will most likely need several chiropractic sessions to receive the full benefits of treatment.
