CAN CHIROPRACTIC CARE HELP WHIPLASH PAIN?
Research has shown chiropractic to be one of the most effective treatments for whiplash pain available today.
Dr. Nowicki uses advanced computerized technology to assist in improving your spinal instabilities so that you can stop suffering and start enjoying your life again. This technology allows for a comfortable and precise adjustment without the “popping sounds” associated with hands on adjusting.
In technical terms, whiplash is an acceleration/deceleration injury to the spine. This means that during whiplash injury, your body is thrown back and forth or side to side violently and quickly. Imagine what would happen if we suddenly bent one of your fingers backward further than it would normally go, but didn’t move the rest of your hand along with it?
The joints of the spine are infinitely more complex than the analogy of injury to your finger, thus whiplash injury is a complex injury to the multitude of delicate joints, nerves, muscles, tendons and ligaments that make up the spine. Whiplash can also injure the brain, causing concussion, or traumatic brain injury. Because of the number of different sensitive body structures that can be hurt in a whiplash injury, the symptoms of whiplash can vary widely.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF WHIPLASH?
Common signs and symptoms of whiplash include the often familiar neck pain and/or stiffness, decreased mobility, headache, shoulder pain, upper back pain, soreness between the shoulders and low back pain.
Often, other whiplash symptoms are present after whiplash injury such as: nausea, difficulty concentrating, arm pain and/or numbness, tingling, jaw pain, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), chest pain, difficulty swallowing, changes in vision, balance problems, insomnia (difficulty sleeping), dizziness, swelling, bruising, soreness, tenderness, tightness, wrist pain/numbness, sciatica (leg pain), fatigue, concussion, hormone disorders, menstrual disorder, occipital neuralgia, sore throat, loss of voice, weakness, feeling depressed, fibromyalgia, and post-traumatic stress disorder (anxiety, nervousness).
