Chiropractic Care Focused on Whiplash Relief

The term whiplash is a basic word that is applied to a variety of injuries that affect your neck, and is caused when your neck is violently moved or jolted back and forth. This type of injury is commonly found in people that have sustained car accident injuries, but it also happens as a result of sports injuries, falls or other accidents.

Whiplash can be successfully treated with chiropractic care, which is an effective method of both immediate and long-term pain relief for this type of injury. The chiropractors at Nichols Chiropractic will take an evaluation of your neck and back, and may also take a few tests to detect any possible fractures or dislocations before beginning treatment. Once the evaluation and examination is complete, your chiropractor will begin treating the inflammation and misalignment in your spinal column and joints through a series of spinal manipulations and adjustment specific to a whiplash injury.

Our Chiropractor Helps Patients with Whiplash Pain

Whiplash Chiropractor in Manhattan KS

When you have whiplash injuries from an accident, you will likely experience a sprain or excessive strain in your neck. Your neck ligaments that usually support and prohibit excessive movements in your vertebrae are damaged. The discs in between your vertebrae may also become torn and could cause disc herniation, and the delicate nerve roots that are in between your vertebrae can also become stretched and inflamed. Your chiropractor will take special care to ensure that your neck and back are adjusted without causing additional damage to your already injured joints in your vertebrate.

Even if you do not experience symptoms right away, you could start to have them hours or even days after the injury. For this reason, it is very important to seek chiropractic treatment as soon as possible after your accident. Our chiropractors at Nichols Chiropractic can treat your whiplash injuries to help reduce inflammation and give you the pain relief you need.

How do you know if you have whiplash after an accident? One of the most commonly found symptoms are acute pain and a stiff neck. Symptoms are often found in your neck, head and upper back, and can be anywhere on the front, sides and back of your neck. It might hurt to turn your head from side to side, or you could find that you have limited neck mobility. Many people also complain of having a headache at the bottom of the skull. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms after an accident, contact Nichols Chiropractic right away for an assessment.

Spinal manipulation and specialized adjustments by a chiropractor can help treat your neck pain and any surrounding injuries. Your chiropractor will recommend cold and hot therapies to reduce inflammation after your adjustment and to give you further neck pain relief. Treat any acute or chronic spinal pain caused by an accident or injury by seeking a highly skilled chiropractor in Manhattan KS at Nichols Chiropractic today.
