How Chiropractic Relieves whiplash symptoms:
Chiropractic adjustments are a very effective form of treatment to relieve whiplash. A chiropractic adjustment is a gentle form of a motion to individual segments of the spine which effect the tissue in three ways.
- Relieves nerve pressure affecting neck and shoulders.
- Relieve muscle reflex pain and spasms.
- Reduces disc pressure which is also a contributing factor in neck and shoulders pain.
What you can expect with chiropractic adjustments is decreased pain, decreased muscle spasms and increased mobility
Therapy to Relieve Whiplash Symptoms
Myofascial release is utilized to decrease the muscle spasms and pressure on the cervical nerves. Deep massage therapy is an alternate form of muscle work to effect the muscles related to the pain of whiplash injuries.
In addition, our treatment may also include therapy which delivers a form of cryotherapy into the muscle tissue. The physiologic effects of cryotherapy include immediate vasoconstriction with reflexive vasodilation, decreased local metabolism and enzymatic activity, and decreased oxygen demand. Cryotherapy decreases muscle activity and decreases spasticity and muscle guarding. It is commonly used to alleviate the pain, decrease muscle soreness, and aids in the relief of whiplash injuries.
Intersegmental traction is another means of inducing passive motion into your spine for the purpose of increasing mobility and stretching spinal joints. The discs of your spine have a poor blood supply. Misalignment of the spine prevents this exchange from occurring. Intersegmental traction helps restore proper motion. Patients lie supine on a table which has vibrating roller-type cams beneath its surface. These massaging rollers travel slowly up and down the spine. Most patients find this form of traction to be very relaxing and therapeutic.

Importance of Immediate Care
What a lot of people don’t realize is that it can take multiple days, sometimes weeks before any whiplash symptoms occur.
The reason it can take a few days to feel the symptoms is because it can take time for the inflammation from the tears in the injured ligaments and muscles to build up and further aggravate you. When the delicate ligaments that support your neck are wounded, the muscles react by tightening to guard the injured area. This protects the damaged area from further injury.
A few weeks following this injury, the distressed tissue releases chemicals that attach little cells to the wounded area, called Fibroblasts and creating a scar-like material called fibrin. Fibrin then helps mend and rebuild the injury.
During these few weeks of repair, it is extremely important to maintain normal ranges of motion, as well as spinal alignment. If this is not done properly, the scar tissue will end up limiting the future mobility of the injured area and lead to spinal degeneration.
