Whiplash Treatment at Synergy Health Partners

When people think of devastating auto accident injuries, the word “whiplash” is often the first thing that comes to mind. This particular injury may actually consists of several injuries rolled into one, from muscle strain damaged joints to pinched cervical nerves.This means it also causes a multitude of debilitating symptoms which aren’t likely to away until you seek help. That’s why Synergy Health Partners offers a variety of natural, non-surgical treatment techniques to help you feel like yourself again.

How Whiplash Hurts You

Whiplash is all too aptly named for the whip-like motion of the neck that causes all the associated damage. The neck and head aren’t strapped into your seat like the rest of your upper body (hopefully) is, and this means that the head can act as a free weight when momentum force is applied to it. An auto accident that brings your vehicle to a sudden stop, even from a speed of just a few miles per hour, can convey considerable force to your body. While your trunk remains restrained, your head goes flying sharply back, causing hyperextension of the neck. It then rebounds forward again, causing hyperflexion. This can strain neck muscles, shift vertebral structures out of alignment, herniate cervical discs and create nerve impingement in the cervical nerve roots. That’s how whiplash is capable of producing such diverse problems as:

  • Neck stiffness and pain

  • Cervical radiculopathy (hand or arm weakness, pain, tingling and numbness)

  • Dizziness

  • Nausea

  • Headaches

  • Jaw pain

  • Memory trouble and other cognitive dysfunction

  • Sleeplessness, irritability and depression

  • Vision and hearing disorders

The same sharp motions that cause whiplash can also leave you with a concussion as the brain impacts the inside of the skull. This injury produces some of the same symptoms as whiplash.

Whiplash Care Options at Our Clinic

Even if you have no whiplash symptoms at all after your auto accident, you should always get your spine evaluated to check for any lurking injuries whose symptoms have been delayed due to shock and adrenaline. Our team can evaluate your spine while alsodetermining whether some of your symptoms are being caused by a concussion instead of a neck injury. If whiplash is definitely the problem, then we can combine a number of safe, effective services to create a personalized treatment plan.

Chiropractic adjustment is a tried-and-true solution for the cervical misalignment that causes joint stiffness and pinched nerves. We can correct joint position to restore freedom of motion and free trapped nerve tissue. Massage therapy, cryotherapy, low-level laser therapy and other techniques can soothe injured soft tissues, while corrective exercises help them heal correctly.
