Integrative Medical & Chiropractic Care For Whiplash Treatment
We use the non-medical term whiplash to describe "cervical acceleration-deceleration" (CAD). CAD is an injury of the neck that is caused by a sudden, violent jolt of the head from one direction to the other, resembling a “whip-like” movement.
During whiplash, the head is lifted up from the upper cervical spine, which causes a strain or sprain of the neck muscles, tendons and ligaments and potentially causing damage to the joints, discs and nerve roots in the spine. Whiplash symptoms are most common following sports related injuries and auto accidents. Particularly if you were rear ended whiplash is a serious concern.
Following whiplash after car accident impact or other causes, symptoms may become evident immediately or may be delayed for several days. Common indications of a whiplash neck injury are:
- Dizziness or Vertigo
- Neck Pain
- Limited Range of Neck Motion
- Blurred Vision
- Difficulty With Concentration
- Memory Loss
- Ringing In The Ears
- Disrupted Sleep Patterns
If you have suffered accidental trauma to the head and neck and are experiencing any of the above whiplash symptoms, it’s important that you seek professional care as soon as possible to begin your recovery and avoid chronic whiplash syndrome.

Integrative Care For Whiplash Treatment
Incorporating multiple whiplash treatments together is the best method to expedite recovery time and reduce your pain. Too often, whiplash sufferers rely on only one isolated treatment. If they take effective pain medication without treating the cause, not only do they risk what’s known as staggered overdose, the condition itself goes untreated and thus possibly exacerbates. In the opposite scenario, they seek whiplash therapy without addressing the pain, creating unnecessary suffering, which puts them at risk for hyperalgesia, which is an abnormally heightened sensitivity to pain.
Combining the specialized care of chiropractic experts in tandem with the experience of medical professionals and the whiplash treatment exercises recommended by a rehabilitative specialist, the efficiency of your whiplash treatment is able to produce optimum results.
When you or a loved one is suffering from the difficult pain associated with neck whiplash, the goal must be immediate as well as long-term improvement. Utilizing the full resources of both medical and chiropractic treatments can result in less pain and a faster recovery time.
