Our Chiropractor Provides Whiplash Treatment to Residents of Pensacola
Driving a car is what many people have to do to get to a destination. Most of the time, this is a very safe activity, and people can get to their final destination without any issues. However, there is always a chance that a car accident could occur. Depending on the accident, this could result in an auto accident injury like whiplash. Those that have whiplash will experience severe pain and stiffness in their back and neck. Fortunately, there are a variety of services through chiropractic care that can help you to recover from this ailment.
An Evaluation of Whiplash
While whiplash is a fairly common auto accident injury, anything that causes the forceful and sudden back and forth motion can tear the muscles and tendons in the neck region. Sometimes, people won't notice the symptoms of whiplash right away. Due to this reason, an evaluation from our chiropractor at Scenic Health & Chiropractic in Pensacola is necessary. An assessment of your injury, including diagnostic testing, can determine the severity of your whiplash injury, enabling us to develop a treatment plan that is right for you.
How Massage Therapy and Physical Therapy Can Help
After an auto accident, you may have tenderness, pain, or micro-tearing of the muscles that could reduce your mobility. The best method to break up and realign any scar tissue and reduce tenderness or pain caused by whiplash is massage therapy, which is a part of chiropractic care. Massage therapy can even help improve your range of motion.
Along with massage, physical therapy can also help with your car accident injury. Our chiropractor will provide you with a range of different exercises that will strengthen the muscles that got affect by whiplash, ultimately reducing pain, improving flexibility, and decreasing inflammation in the neck. Our exercises allow you to perform them at home, which will help the healing process going forward.
