What to Expect When Visiting a Chiropractor for Whiplash in Greensboro

When you get into an accident on the road or in the workplace, you may need treatment to address your discomfort and pain. Depending on the symptoms you develop, a professional recommends a treatment plan to address the injuries. A common injury that occurs during an accident is whiplash and you want to address the symptoms early to prevent complications.

What is Whiplash?

Whiplash is a neck injury that occurs when your head snaps forward and backward at a fast pace. It commonly occurs in car accidents, but may also happen when you play a sport or from injuries in the workplace.

The symptoms of the injury do not always occur immediately after an accident. You may notice neck pain, tension in your neck, headaches, and insomnia associated with the injury after a few hours or days. When you get into an accident, you want to seek immediate attention from a professional to ensure that you have appropriate treatments for whiplash. The injury may worsen without proper treatment and care.

Chiropractic Treatment for Whiplash in Greensboro

Chiropractic treatments for whiplash in Greensboro start with an evaluation of your injuries. A chiropractor examines your entire spine and neck to identify the location of the injuries and any further concerns. After identifying the injuries, a professional in our clinic recommends a treatment plan.

We may start by using ice and heat to reduce inflammation in the neck. We also use gentle adjustments to improve the alignment of the neck and spine. Spinal decompression helps when you have a slipped disc and we use deep tissue laser therapy for deep tissue injuries.
