One of the most common car accident injuries in Clermont is whiplash. Whiplash is caused by the force of the collision causing the head to "whip" back and forth, stretching the muscles, vertebrae, and tendons in the neck far beyond what they are normally capable of. Whiplash can occur even in low speed car crashes, and is a personal injury that should be taken seriously. Traditional medical care treats the symptoms of whiplash, including pain and headaches, but does not treat the underlying issues. Chiropractic care, on the other hand, helps to relieve neck pain by actually realigning the neck and promoting the body's natural healing ability.
Chiropractic treatment for whiplash typically involves cervical spine manipulations, but can also involve moist heat therapy, cryotherapy, and other techniques designed to relieve pain and relieve the tightness of the neck muscles caused by subluxation, or misalignment, of the cervical spine. Many people have heard about neck manipulations being dangerous and contributing to the risk of stroke, however, the risk is extremely low. In fact, there is more risk of injury associated with driving a car than there is when having a cervical spine manipulation. Additionally, treating whiplash pain with pharmaceuticals puts patients at risk for dependency and other health problems, and not treating whiplash at all can leave auto accident victims in debilitating pain that keeps them from engaging in everyday life. Simply put, chiropractic care with our Clermont Chiropractor for whiplash is a safer, more natural way to treat neck pain after a car crash than many of the alternatives.
