Car accidents can cause all types of injuries. If you have sustained a whiplash injury, it's time to see how our Nanaimo Chiropractor can help. At Woodgrove Pines Clinic in Nanaimo, we are there to give you the support you need to heal after you are in a car accident. Using a wide range of strategies to improve wellness, chiropractic care is an effective treatment for whiplash and other soft tissue injuries.
A whiplash injury doesn't always result in neck pain, headaches, or pain in the shoulders and upper back right away. Sometimes the injury isn't clear until a few days after the accident occurs. A whiplash injury can cause tightness in your neck, make it difficult to turn your head from side to side and leave you with headaches that are hard to manage. Symptoms can occur immediately after an accident and get worse over the next few days, or only first appear as much as 48 hours later.
A chiropractor will assess the health of your head, neck, and spine to develop a treatment plan that works for you. Treatment for whiplash often includes chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue manipulation, stretching, massage, and ultrasound. During whiplash, the muscles of your neck get tight, and healing is difficult. With chiropractic care, circulation to your muscles, and soft tissue increases, making it easier for you to heal.
Chiropractic care is natural care that is not going to cause problems with other treatments you are receiving. Even when you are seeing your primary care physician for an auto accident injury, a chiropractor offers excellent complementary therapy for your injuries.
If you have a headache, neck ache, and overall pain from a whiplash injury, chiropractic care can make a big difference. Contact Woodgrove Pines Clinic in Nanaimo at 250-390-2003 and set up an appointment for chiropractic care today.
