Whiplash is experienced often in the neck region when the neck is jolted to the side or in an upward motion unexpectedly. This causes trauma to the neck muscles and results in their needing to be re-balanced. Joint realignment might also be necessary depending on the patient’s individual circumstances.
Considering the neck muscles, as well as the joints, surround the spine (a very intricate and fragile area), it takes a skilled hand to treat this location of the body.
Chiropractors are trained to do just that and have the skills to execute special manipulation techniques that will not only help the healing of these injuries but also improve the muscles overall performance. Whiplash often also requires a combination therapy type approach that you can’t normally get from a regular doctor.
