Health First Chiropractic Marysville Offers Treatment For Whiplash

Whiplash is an upper cervical spinal injury that often occurs in auto accidents. Pain, loss of range of motion, and a multitude of other symptoms can result from whiplash. These problems can be addressed with chiropractic care, a drug-free and non-invasive relief to pain. At Health First Chiropractic Marysville in Marysville, WA, we provide treatment for individuals with whiplash symptoms.


Understanding Whiplash

Whiplash is a condition that results from the rapid forward and backward motion of the upper body during impacts. This motion can cause stretching of the muscles in the neck and upper back, injury to ligaments, compression of discs in the spine, and pressure on nerves. These injuries are often associated with automobile crashes, but they can also be caused by sports impacts and physical violence. Symptoms of whiplash generally appear within twenty-four hours of the impact. Whiplash symptoms can be severe enough that it can affect everyday activities.

Whiplash Symptoms

Neck pain is the most common sign of whiplash, but other symptoms can also occur. You may have difficulty turning the head, feel pain in the shoulders or upper back, or experience headaches, dizziness, fatigue, or numbness in the arms. Blurry vision, sleep issues, ringing in the ears, depression, and memory difficulties are problems that can occur after a whiplash injury.

Whiplash Treatment

Our chiropractor, Dr. Clarke, will take a medical history and ask you questions about your symptoms. After a careful evaluation of your injury, Dr. Clarke will design a care plan to relieve your symptoms. He may suggest spinal adjustment to re-align structures that may have been displaced during the impact of the accident. Our doctor may also suggest muscle relaxation, stimulation techniques, or corrective exercises to improve mobility. In addition, Dr. Clarke can advise you on ergonomic changes to reduce stress on muscles and nerves.
