Whiplash Treatment In Tacoma

Whiplash is a condition that occurs as a result of a blunt-force impact that causes the head to suddenly and harshly move in a back and forth direction. The movement looks very similar to the visual of a cracking whip, hence the name. It is common to sustain a whiplash injury after being in a vehicle that gets hit in the rear by another vehicle. Whiplash happens because the neck is in quite a fragile position, and, as it’s connected to the head it has to support a lot of weight. Any harsh jerking or pulling of those muscles that support the head can cause the surrounding muscles, tendons and joints to become quite severely affected or damaged.

Why It's Important to be Treated Immediately

After a car accident, there are so many concerns to be dealt with that many people overlook their own physical condition if there are no immediately visible problems. This could be a painful and costly mistake, as many injuries don’t appear until hours or even days and weeks after an accident. If left untreated, injuries can become exacerbated and more difficult to treat. Whether or not you notice injuries it’s extremely important to visit a healthcare professional as soon as possible after an accident. A chiropractor can take x-rays that may reveal muscle tears, bone fractures or other injuries that aren’t easy to detect. Once identified, treatment can quickly be administered before more problems are allowed to develop or get worse.

How Our Chiropractor in Tacoma Chiropractor Can Help Treat Whiplash

Since a chiropractor deals with manual adjustments, there’s no need for filling prescriptions for costly medications or suggestions of surgical interventions. With chiropractic care, we can quickly address the source of the pain with a hands-on treatment that goes straight to the injury site. Our goal is, of course, pain relief but we also focus on natural ways treat our patients so that pain is not only alleviated but prevented from reoccurring. In cases of whiplash, this is much easier to do than with other conditions because the impact of the accident has likely caused the joints of the spine to become misaligned, resulting in a pinching of the neck muscles and nerves. A chiropractic adjustment shifts the joints, allowing the spine to become realigned, thereby relieving the pressure on the pinched or damaged nerves.
