Discover How to Get Rid of Whiplash, Neck Pain, and Back Pain After a Car Accident

This May Be The Most Important Article You Will Ever Read About Your Injuries!

If you’ve recently been involved in a car wreck and suffer from any of the following…

  •  WhiplashWhiplash
  •  Neck pain
  •  Sharp, shooting pains in the arms
  •  Numbness and tingling in the arms or hands
  •  Painful headaches or dizziness
  •  Unrelenting muscle soreness

…There may be cause for concern.

It’s amazing how different life can be after a split second collision.One minute everything is fine, the next you are hurting for days and worried if life will ever get back to normal.

Tasks you used to perform with ease, like going to work, playing with kids, concentrating or even sleeping, now take more effort and cause annoying pain. If you feel like this, or have any of the symptoms listed above, you could be suffering from whiplash.

Whiplash is an injury to the spine caused by a jerking motion, either backward, forward or from the side. And on the often treacherous Inland Northwest roads this is a common occurrence.

Whiplash can severely damage your ligaments, even if you feel just a little sore after the accident. If not healed properly, painful scar tissue will develop, causing misery in your neck joints for decades. One medical study concluded 43% of patients “will suffer long-term symptoms following ‘whiplash’ injury, for which no conventional treatment has proven to be effective.”

This means that almost half the people who have neck trauma from a car wreck will suffer for years. Plus the traditional methods of treatment like neck collars, ‘wait-and-see’, and pain pills are not working.

Early Intervention is the Key!

While muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatory medications can be useful immediately after your injury, long-term they tend to mask your symptoms. Cervical collars are usually ineffective in decreasing pain severity.

Early use of gentle manual therapy procedures and massage usually produces the quickest results and reduces the chances of long-term disability.

A recent landmark study on whiplash in Spine magazine supports this as fact. In a review of 359 studies on neck pain, including whiplash, found that the most beneficial therapies were joint mobilization, muscle stretching and manual traction. Since the neck “facet” joints are responsible for about half of all cases of whiplash symptoms, we have found that gentle, low force spinal adjustments are crucial in reducing pain and improving range of motion.

We treat each patient as an individual with unique healthcare problems. Because of this, we use a wide variety of techniques at our Spokane chiropractic clinic to treat the muscles, ligaments and joints.

Don’t Wait To Get Treated

Don’t let scar tissue build up and be painful for the rest of your life. A study published in the Journal of Bone and Surgery looked at people who had been in a car accident 15 years ago. They found that 70% of the whiplash injured patients continued to complain of problems related to the original accident. With women it was even higher — 80% still had symptoms after 15 years!
