Whiplash Treatment From Your Chiropractors in Tracy, Mountain House, and Manteca

Whiplash is one of the most common auto accident injuries, and it can also occur following a sports injury, slip-and-fall accident, and any other injury that causes a sudden jolt to your neck and upper spine. The signs and symptoms of whiplash can take a while to develop, and once they do, they can cause long-term pain and other symptoms in your neck, upper back, and even your arms. Without proper medical care, those symptoms can cause permanent disability that can make even simple activities excruciatingly painful. As leading chiropractors in Tracy, Mountain House, and Manteca, the chiropractic team at Valley Chiropractic Center is skilled in diagnosing, assessing and treating whiplash symptoms to help patients feel better quickly.

What is whiplash?

Whiplash is an injury that occurs when your head and neck are snapped back and forth rapidly. The rapid movement causes tiny tears in the nerves, muscles and soft tissues in and around your neck and shoulders. The term “whiplash” refers to that rapid back-and-forth motion that’s like the fast “crack” or snaps of a whip. Whiplash is a very common injury following car accidents, including minor “fender-bender” accidents, and often, it can be a day or more before any symptoms appear.

What are the symptoms of whiplash?

Whiplash symptoms include:

  • headache
  • neck pain
  • neck stiffness and reduced range of movement in the neck
  • shoulder pain
  • upper back pain
  • pain radiating into the arms
  • numbness, tingling or shock-like sensations radiating into the arms and hands
  • dizziness
  • sleep problems
  • difficulty focusing or concentrating

The symptoms of whiplash can vary in their severity, depending on the extent of tissue damage and other factors. Having a chiropractic exam immediately following an auto accident, fall, or other accident or injury is critical for ensuring you get treatment as early as possible before serious, chronic symptoms develop.

How can a chiropractor provide pain relief for whiplash?

Chiropractic care is focused on the treatment of nerve and spine injuries, which means seeing your chiropractor is a great step toward feeling better. At Valley Chiropractic Center, your treatment will begin with a physical exam using hands-on techniques to evaluate your pain. In many cases, you’ll also have X-rays or other diagnostic imaging exams to provide additional information about your injury and to guide your care.

Since whiplash typically involves nerve compression in the neck and upper (cervical) spine, most patients achieve pain relief with a spinal adjustment designed to gently coax slipped discs back into their normal positions so nerve irritation is relieved. Other chiropractic care options like therapeutic massage and gentle exercises can also help by optimizing circulation and relieving painful inflammation while also improving range of motion in the neck and shoulders. And of course, you’ll also receive lifestyle guidance about habits and techniques you can use at home and at work to relieve your symptoms and prevent them from recurring.
