Chiropractic Care for Whiplash Injuries

Written By Gulf Coast Injury Center on February 9, 2018

Facing an injury to your neck, shoulders or upper back may raise concerns about whiplash. Whether you were in an auto accident, a workplace accident or were injured in a sport, you want to work with a chiropractic professional in our clinic to identify and address the injuries to your body.

Basic Facts About Whiplash

Whiplash is a term used to describe an injury to your neck. It usually means a strain on the muscles of your neck, but it may relate to any neck injury caused by the sudden forward and backward momentum of your head during an accident. It commonly occurs during auto accidents, but may occur in other situations.

When you suspect a strain on your neck, you want to seek professional care and treatment. A chiropractor in our clinic offers solutions to help with your injuries and long-term recovery goals.

Why Treat the Injury Immediately?

The reason you want to treat the injury immediately is the potential for further damage when you avoid treatment. The injury often worsens over time due to your normal activities and behaviors.

When you suspect a neck strain or whiplash, you want to address the injury before it worsens. Without proper treatment, it may contribute to depression, headaches, migraines and insomnia. If you are unsure about the injury, a professional evaluates your situation and recommends a treatment strategy for your goals.
