Whiplash Treatment from Our Chiropractors in Daytona Beach and Orange City
Whiplash is quite literally a wrenching experience, both for your neck and for your overall quality of life. This form of neck damage, a common auto injury, can leave you unable to turn your head while experiencing a variety of distressing symptoms. The sooner you get your whiplash treated effectively, the more easily and completely you can heal. That's why you'll want to turn to Modern Health Chiropractic so you can get safe, natural care from our chiropractors in Orange City, FL and Daytona Beach, FL.
How Whiplash Damages Your Neck
Whiplash takes your neck beyond its natural range of motion, suddenly and forcefully (like the lash of a whip). Oddly enough, you don't have to be moving very fast for such a catastrophic auto injury to occur; even coming to a sudden stop from a mere 5 miles per hour is enough to send the weight of your head flying. The head's backward motion causes hyperextension of the neck, while the forward rebound motion causes hyperflexion.
Whiplash carries some serious consequences. The vertebrae in your neck can be pushed completely out of alignment, making it impossible to move your head without agonizing pain.Torn muscles in your neck only add to the pain and stiffness. To make matters worse, a herniated disc or vertebral subluxation can put pressure on the major cervical nerve roots. This inhibits nerve signals and produces tingling, numbness, or loss of function in the upper extremities. Other whiplash symptoms include headaches, dizziness, mood changes, memory problems, and jaw or facial pain.
Natural Whiplash Solutions from our Car Accident Chiropractor
Don't assume that your whiplash will fix itself, or that the absence of immediate symptoms equals a clean bill of health. Whiplash symptoms may be delayed for quite some time due to the shock of the accident. Meanwhile, the body's attempts to heal itself may result in internal scarring and lasting pain. Visit your car accident chiropractor at our clinic right away for a spinal evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment.
Modern Health Chiropractic offers a number of safe, non-surgical,non-pharmaceutical techniques to help you overcome your whiplash. In addition to our spinal adjustments, which can return your cervical vertebrae to their proper alignment, we also administer spinal decompression therapy to restore herniated discs and relieve nerve pressure. Massage therapy and physical rehabilitation are equally helpful for easing soft tissue pain and restoring full neck function.
