Whiplash Treatment from Orlando Chiropractor
Dr. Bret MacDermott, your trusted Orlando chiropractor, understands that suffering from a condition related to poor spinal health or a spinal injury can be a painful experience. That’s why our chiropractic team strives to provide the highest standard of care, drawing on proven techniques and treatments to help you achieve optimal health and wellness.
Whiplash and Auto Accidents
One of the more common injuries we see here in our office is that of whiplash, which is almost always caused by an auto accident. Specifically, whiplash is a spinal injury that occurs when the body is forced to come to an abrupt stop, causing the spine to be thrown forward (usually into a seat belt). The end result is damage to the muscles and tenons around the spine, which can be very painful and lead to stiffness, migraines/headaches, and even numbness or tingling of the extremities.
Chiropractic Treatment Options
The good news is that there are numerous chiropractic treatment techniques that are often effective when it comes to addressing and relieving the symptoms of whiplash. Perhaps the best thing about using chiropractic care for treatment is that there is no need to worry about the risk of side effects or complications as you would with medication or more invasive treatment options.
In our office, we have found that spinal adjustment, massage therapy, and sometimes even spinal decompression therapy are effective techniques in treating whiplash and providing patients with relief from symptoms. Spinal adjustments, for instance, can help to correct the spine’s alignment following an accident. From there, massage therapy can help to provide relief for symptoms such as back and neck pain, stiffness, and even headaches or migraines. All of this can be achieved without the need for invasive treatments.
