A chiropractor can help to naturally treat whiplash and get you to feeling better quickly. Here is some information you should know if you are in this position.

What is Whiplash And Why Does it Happen? 

Whiplash is a condition that occurs when the muscles, tendons, and ligaments in your neck and upper back stretch, tear or become strained. This is caused by rapid motion causing your neck and upper back to move forward and backward. If you are rear-ended or hit from behind in a car accident, your upper body is propelled forward rapidly and then thrown back, providing a situation in whiplash can occur. 

Why Is It Important to Treat Whiplash Immediately?

Many people put off treating the injuries they are experiencing after a car accident. They think that it is stiffness or soreness and their symptoms will get better with rest and time. However, if you are suffering from whiplash, it is important to treat your injuries as quickly as possible. The soft tissue damaged that you sustained can worsen if the condition is not treated properly. Since the tendons and muscles are already stretched out, it is easy to cause more damage. Seeking treatment quickly helps to prevent further damage from occurring. 

How Can a Chiropractor Help Treat Whiplash?

One of the first things that the chiropractor will do is to adjust your back and neck area. Adjusting the area helps to properly align the vertebrae in your neck and spine. This takes some of the pressure off of the already strained tendons and muscles. Spinal manipulation is also done to restore motion to the joint, which in turn, can help you slowly begin to move the area with less pain. Exercising the area can help you to build your strength back up and reduce soreness and stiffness.
