A whiplash injury occurs when the force of a rear-ended impact knocks the cervical spine out of alignment. The can cause the head to unexpectedly snap forward and backward. Whiplash injuries affect the cervical spine, as well as the muscles, nerves and tendons in the neck. Many patients are surprised to learn these types of injuries can occur at speeds as slow as 5pmh. Sports injuries are also a common cause for whiplash. For example, playing contact sports like football can cause a forceful, from-behind injury that will knock the cervical spine out of alignment.
Chiropractic care is an effective, all-natural treatment that corrects the underlying spinal misalignment. Unlike prescription painkillers that only temporarily mask pain, chiropractic adjustments provide lasting relief, reducing long-term effects. Our Clermont chiropractor provides hands-on chiropractic adjustments that help restore alignment to the cervical spine. Proper alignment relieves pressure on the nerves, which helps naturally manage neck pain and reduce the occurrence of headaches and migraines.
Additionally, our chiropractor frequently combines chiropractic adjustments with complementary therapies, including corrective care exercises. These exercises are important for safely restoring a full range of movement to the neck after injury. Many patients’ necks are sore and stiff following an accident in which they’ve been rear-ended. Our corrective care exercises help to strengthen injured areas, increase mobility and improve flexibility following the initial consultation and chiropractic treatment in our office.
