Whiplash is a commonly treated injury in Portland. This condition occurs when the neck is whipped forward and then backward, as occurs in many car accidents. With Dr. Samantha Stuart DC, our chiropractic treatments can help our patients make a quick recovery and help minimize the risk of serious complications that can occur from whiplash.
The symptoms of whiplash are varied and can include any of the following:
Pain and tenderness in back and neck
Limited range of motion
Many people who suffer from whiplash fail to recognize the symptoms of this condition in the hours and days immediately following the accident. Delaying treatment can lead to complications and additional pain.
Seeing a chiropractor immediately after your accident occurs can help you get the help you need to feel better and get well. At Dr. Samantha Stuart DC, we use the following techniques to help patients suffering from whiplash:
Spinal adjustment. Spinal adjustment helps eliminate subluxations and improves the functioning of the central nervous system, to help the patient recover quickly.
Massage therapy. Massage therapy is a technique we use to improve blood flow to injured areas of the body and improve range of motion.
Stretches and exercise. Stretches and exercises can help reduce muscle stiffness and strengthen the muscles.
Lifestyle advice. We administer lifestyle advice to patients to help them avoid further injury while they heal.
At Dr. Samantha Stuart DC, we help patients suffering from whiplash and other car accident related injuries. Our natural, holistic approach can help patients make a full recovery without invasive procedures and addictive medications. If you've recently been involved in a car accident, don't wait for symptoms to show. Contact us today for a consultation and diagnosis. We can help you feel better before you even realize you've been injured. Call us for an appointment.
