Top Rated Local® Chiropractic Care
Whiplash is one of the most painful neck injuries that can affect people of all ages. Whether your whiplash injury is the result of a car accident, a sports injury, or even a work injury, you want to find immediate relief. Fortunately, there are many treatment modalities that can help you heal quickly and effectively from your injury. Keep reading to learn more about whiplash, and connect with your trusted Littleton chiropractor, Dr. Arne, to schedule a consultation for whiplash treatment.
While it is often sustained in motor vehicle accidents, whiplash can occur with any type of trauma that causes the head and neck to suddenly snap in multiple directions. When the head is abruptly jarred forward and backward, side to side, or backward and forward, it causes muscles and other soft tissues in the neck to flex and extend in a whipping motion. This motion is what causes severe sprain/strain in the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and supportive tissues in the neck, upper back, and shoulders. As a result, people experience a range of acute symptoms that, when left untreated, could cause lingering problems to develop over time. That’s why beginning whiplash treatment right away is essential to your health and wellness.
Here at Arne Wellness Center, we specialize in a range of treatment modalities to provide everything you need to help you heal from your injury under one roof. Dr. Robert Arne, a leading Chiropractic Internist in Littleton, and his team of massage therapists and medical specialists are passionate about providing you with the very best care possible. We deliver all our services with care, compassion, and understanding to make the healing process as stress-free for you as possible.
Your whiplash treatments may include one or more of the following services to help encourage quick pain relief and effective healing.
Whiplash is often associated with car accidents, but the truth is, you can suffer a whiplash injury any number of ways.
Whiplash is one of the most common injuries sustained in car accidents, including front-end collisions, side collisions, and rear-end collisions. In fact, the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) reports that about two-thirds of people involved in motor vehicle accidents will develop whiplash symptoms. Most people don’t realize that whiplash can still occur in low-speed collisions. Even those as low as five miles per hour!
Contact sports and highly physical athletics can also cause whiplash. From football to basketball to hockey and soccer, person-to-person collisions can cause this type of neck injury. High-intensity sports such as cycling, skiing, boxing, and water sports can also be linked to whiplash.
Whiplash is also attributed to many different types of personal injuries. These include riding recreational vehicles such as dirt bikes and ATVs. Slip and fall accidents can also result in whiplash injuries. One thing that people don’t often link to whiplash is riding amusement park rides, rollercoasters, and other forceful thrill rides that can cause the head to whip suddenly in a direction.
Your chiropractor performs focused and controlled manipulations to the neck, upper back, and shoulders to correct misalignments in the spine, which are in this case caused by a trauma to the neck area. Additionally, Dr. Arne may apply ultrasound to alleviate inflammation and swelling, as well as light stretching techniques and manual therapy techniques. By working the soft tissues and joints manually, your chiropractor can reduce tension, inflammation, swelling, and pain, while also encouraging healthy circulation to the damaged soft tissues for more effective healing.
