Yes, we treat whiplash injuries
Our chiropractors are often consulted for the treatment of whiplash injuries resulting from car accidents. Whiplash is a common injury that occurs when the neck is suddenly and forcefully jerked forward and backward. Whiplash can lead to a variety of symptoms, including neck pain, stiffness, headaches, and nerve pain.
Inner Gate’s chiropractors specialize in musculoskeletal issues and use a combination of manual manipulation, spinal adjustments, and other techniques to help alleviate the symptoms associated with whiplash.
Our chiropractors work along side excellent massage and acupuncture providers that can also contribute their skills to the whiplash injury care.
Here’s how we help with whiplash:
Spinal Adjustments: Spinal adjustments help realign the spine and relieve pressure on the affected nerves. This can help reduce pain and improve mobility in the neck. These adjustments are gentle and done in the comfort of a private treatment room.
Soft Tissue Therapy: Our chiropractors incorporate soft tissue therapies, such as massage or myofascial release, to address muscle tension and stiffness associated with whiplash. Chiropractic treatments are more effective when combined with soft tissue work. By reducing muscle tension adjustments last longer and produce longer relief.
Exercise and Rehabilitation: Specific exercises and stretches to improve strength, flexibility, and posture, are prescribed as homework. These exercises and stretches allow you to be involved in your recovery even while you’re busy in your daily life. Now you’re self treating in an educated and effective way.
Pain Management: Ultrasound, Herbal plasters, heat or cold therapy, and other natural remedies are used to reduce inflammation and discomfort. These hypo allergenic options are generally very gentle and well tolerated. Some combine Chinese herbal medicine with western ideas about pain and recovery.
Education and Lifestyle Advice: Our chiropractors will also provide advice on ergonomic improvements and lifestyle modifications to prevent further strain on the neck and spine. These improvements can have a powerful impact of your daily life. By reducing stress and strain on your body you will improve your recovery time and be more productive during your working hours.
