Rear-end car accidents are a common cause of whiplash, as are falling, accidents related to playing sports, and abuse. Whiplash treatment helps assess the damage to the neck and can spot potential concussions. Our chiropractor at Ironwood Chiropractic, in Richmond, BC, administers treatments to help relieve whiplash symptoms and facilitate healing.
Should I Seek Whiplash Treatment Immediately?
Whiplash can produce several symptoms, including neck pain and stiffness, headaches, the inability to move the neck as freely, fatigue, dizziness, and trouble with concentration. If you've been recently involved in a car accident or other incident, it's critical to seek prompt treatment. Seeking chiropractic care in Richmond can determine whether any bones are broken, confirm you have whiplash, and help assess whether or not there is any damage that is likely to produce long-term problems.
How Can a Chiropractor Help with Whiplash Treatment?
Our chiropractor in Richmond can assist with treating whiplash, including neck adjustments that increase a patient's range of motion. Our chiropractor can also treat the injuries to reduce pain, any muscle and joint stiffness, and soreness in the area. Depending upon the extent and nature of the injury, a treatment plan may include massage therapy and physical exercises. Chiropractic treatment is typically effective for most people who suffer from whiplash.
