Comprehensive Whiplash Treatment Here in Mississauga
Whiplash is a common condition resulting from auto accidents, but can also occur from fast-moving sports or a simple fall. In all these cases, whiplash is a condition caused by forces violently whipping the head back and forth in a very short period of time. The reason why trauma from whiplash is so painful is
because the soft tissue around the neck and spine are injured. However, it’s not uncommon that damage from whiplash may be minor and go unnoticed or is ignored. This will eventually lead to health complications 5-10 years later in life. If you have been in an auto accident, we at Health + Healing Chiropractic are here to help assess the damage and find the care that is best for you.
Treating Whiplash with Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic treatment for whiplash starts with a physical examination. The first thing that our team will do is examine the spine and the neck to determine he exact location of the injury. After the location is determined x-rays may be necessary to fully comprehend the damage. Next, the patient is offered a personalized care plan. A typical whiplash care plan includes the following procedures and chiropractic techniques:
● Spinal adjustments. The purpose of chiropractic adjustments is to bring back proper function back to the spine that was lost due to the original injury and to help decrease pain.
● Spinal orthotic units. Chiropractors may also utilize cervical or neck orthotic units to help restore correct spinal alignment and to compliment the chiropractic adjustment.
● Post x-rays. The purpose of this is to monitor correction as the patient undergoes care.
