Whiplash symptoms are one of the most common injuries you can suffer in a car accident. Whiplash pain can cause sleepless nights and loss of range of motion in joints and muscles. Not every person experiences whiplash the same way and the symptoms may be more severe for some. Dr. Lew and Dr. Ryan have years of experience in helping whiplash pain sufferers heal through several chiropractic treatment options. If you are suffering from whiplash, you can feel better.
Whiplash caused by joint dysfunction may be one of the most common types. Our Ogden Chiropractors will evaluate your condition during your initial visit to determine the extent of the joint dysfunction. Subsequent treatments involve adjusting the spine to move the affected joints back into their correct place. This chiropractic adjustment moves the joint slowly back into place with small thrusts. You will feel a bit of pressure during the procedure as the spine is realigned. This realignment relieves pain and helps the body to heal faster and correctly.
Muscle Relaxation and Stimulation
Muscles often tighten up after a whiplash injury. The doctors in our Ogden Chiropractic office can help them relax in order to relieve whiplash symptoms. Depending on the severity of the tightness, you may have to undergo deeper stretches. The chiropractor might also use pressure techniques to relieve tightness and pain. Whiplash pain relief will be accomplished with various methods designed to help the muscles relax.
Lifestyle changes can also help a patient cope with whiplash symptoms. Dr. Lew and Dr. Ryan will discuss with you adjustments that may need to be made at work, at home, in recreational activities, and in other areas until the body has time to heal and the pain and other whiplash symptoms decrease. The chiropractor can also show you how to take better care of the injury at home so that you can be comfortable while you heal.
The caring doctors at the Chiropractic Health Center of Ogden, Dr. Lew and Dr. Ryan, will help you get relief from whiplash pain as soon as possible. Visiting the chiropractor as soon as possible after your accident will speed up recovery time and decrease collateral injuries. Call us today so you can start healing.
