Treating Whiplash



If you were injured in an accident and feel pain in your neck, it could be due to whiplash. Whiplash is a painful neck injury that’s most commonly associated with car accidents but can also be caused by other traumas. At Motus Integrative Health, our chiropractors regularly assist clients facing whiplash and other neck injuries. We understand that your priority is to get the dependable care you need to feel better, so we help through integrative services with holistic methods. Whiplash is a common problem, and it can have significant impacts to your mobility and quality of life. Here’s what you should know about the link between chiropractic and solving whiplash. 

What Is Whiplash?

Whiplash occurs when the head moves rapidly back and forth from an impact, such as a car accident or sports-related incident. For instance, an individual playing football is at risk for whiplash, just as someone involved in a car accident. When an unexpected impact occurs, it can cause uncontrolled movements to the head, which strains the neck muscles. Since we rely on our heads for many movements, we may not realize how severe the pain is until we try to live everyday lives. Something as simple as bending your neck to look upwards can be very painful. 

At our office, our chiropractors carefully explain your treatment options and what it means to have whiplash. Around 43 percent of patients will continue to have long-term symptoms following the incident, so prompt treatment is essential. Chiropractic is very effective for neck injuries, so rest assured that we’ll help you find a treatment that suits your needs. 

How Chiropractic Relieves Whiplash Pain

It’s normal to feel frustrated when you’re in pain. Whiplash can cause ongoing issues that impact your quality of life. Fortunately, there are ways to reduce whiplash’s physical impacts through chiropractic, which is commonly used to treat neck pain. Thanks to its non-invasive techniques, chiropractic is a top choice for neck pain. There’s little risk involved and most individuals report no additional side effects as a result. If you’re wondering whether this treatment is right for you, consider the benefits: 

  • Special Maneuvers. A chiropractic adjustment is used to relieve pain along the spine. A chiropractor will apply force to the affected area, but there is no pain reported by the majority of patients. These gentle maneuvers can relieve pain and stiffness. 
  • Lowers Inflammation. When our bodies are injured, the immune system rushes to the scene to mitigate infection and start the healing process. This results in Inflammation, a typical response to an injury. Unfortunately, inflammation is associated with swelling and reduced mobility, so it’s good to reduce excess inflammation through a chiropractic adjustment. 
  • Individualized Care. Chiropractic care leaves wiggle room so each patient receives the specific care they need. No two people have the same exact physical health, and chiropractic addresses your unique requirements.
