Whiplash syndrome develops when a person's head and neck powerfully snap forward and backward, typically due to a sudden acceleration or deceleration of the body. At Cutitta Chiropractic, our Greenfield and Lawrenceville chiropractor team offers natural, personalized, and drug-free whiplash treatment that's safe for people of all ages.
Symptoms of Whiplash
Whiplash can affect dozens of tissues in the head, neck, and shoulders, and upper back. If you recently experienced a motor vehicle accident, sports accident (like a bicycle crash), a fall, or similar physical trauma, you may be at risk for whiplash. Signs and symptoms of whiplash, which often take a few hours or days to develop after the initial injury, can include:
- Neck pain
- Neck stiffness
- Shoulder pain or numbness, which may extend down into the arm
- Jaw pain
- Ringing in the ears
Because of these symptoms, you might have a hard time focusing at work, sleeping, driving, or performing other daily tasks.
What Chiropractic Care Can Do for Whiplash
While whiplash symptoms can sometimes get better on their own, the risk of taking a "wait and see" approach is that underlying tissue damage may persist. This could lead to long-lasting pain and dysfunction, even after the initial whiplash syndrome goes away.
This is why we recommend consulting with a chiropractor as soon as you can following a traumatic accident, even if you don't feel a lot of pain. Our Lawrenceville and Greenfield chiropractors use non-invasive diagnostic techniques to detect hidden signs of tissue damage, spinal joint subluxations (misalignments), and other problems that could get worse if left unaddressed.
Based on our examination, we can offer you a customized whiplash treatment plan that will maximize your body's innate healing process while also giving you drug-free pain relief. Our patients have found immense success with services such as:
- Chiropractic adjustments that restore spinal alignment, calm the nervous system, and naturally, relieve pain
- Corrective exercises designed to speed tissue healing and enhance core endurance for improved spinal health overall
- Massage therapy to promote healthy circulation and lymphatic drainage while minimizing scar tissue formation
