Whiplash Treatment

If you have recently been in an automobile or industrial accident where you were hit from behind, it's very likely that you are suffering from whiplash. Whiplash injuries are incredibly common and very treatable, that doesn't mean they don't hurt. Depending on the severity of your injuries, it may take weeks or even months to fully heal from an injury like this. Whiplash is commonly treated in our chiropractic office, but it is important for patients to know what to expect with their care. We at Pike Chiropractic Therapy Center in Huber Heights, OH, know all about whiplash treatment.

How Whiplash Treatment Works

The first visit that a whiplash patient will have with a chiropractor at our practice will typically take about an hour. During this appointment, a chiropractor on our team will usually start by getting a detailed medical history and a description of the accident. It's important that the chiropractor knows how your vehicle was hit, where you were sitting, and other details. The medical history will tell him or her what medications you're currently on, as well as alert them to any other prior injuries or problems that could affect your care. Be sure to tell the chiropractor about previous accidents, even if you have fully recovered from your injuries.

You can see a traditional doctor and a chiropractor on our team at the same time. Chiropractic care is often a great compliment to traditional medicine. It's also entirely possible to take pain medications while you are undergoing chiropractic care.

The Whiplash Treatment Plan

Using the information from the exam, a chiropractor on our team can develop a treatment plan. While each plan is unique to the patient, most whiplash patients have care plans that share some common elements.

Chiropractic treatment is designed to manipulate the muscles around the spine. For whiplash cases, muscles around the neck and shoulder may be slowly moved over time with the help of chiropractic treatment. As they return to their proper positions, they may put less pressure on the nerves in this area. This can help cause the nerves to send fewer pain signals to the brain. Once all the muscles are back to their proper locations, pain may stop entirely.
