What is Whiplash?

However, you can experience a whiplash injury any time your head and neck are forcefully jerked beyond their normal range of motion. Here at East West Spine and Rehab, serving Smyrna and Mableton, our chiropractor diagnoses and treats whiplash with holistic, noninvasive treatments.

Whiplash Symptoms our Smyrna Chiropractor Treats

Our Smyrna chiropractor treats your whiplash symptoms while helping to heal your injury. While symptoms may not appear right away, most people start to experience neck pain and stiffness between 24 and 72 hours after the injury. Most individuals also notice an increase in the frequency and severity of their headaches. Other symptoms include blurry vision, exhaustion, difficulty sleeping and upper back and shoulder pain.

Whiplash Treatment in Mableton and Smyrna

Our chiropractor offers comprehensive whiplash treatment in Mableton and Smyrna so that you can feel better faster. When a whiplash injury occurs it sprains and strains all the soft tissues in the neck and misaligned the cervical vertebrae.

In order to heal the neck injury, our chiropractor often starts with gentle chiropractic adjustments, which helps to restore the proper curvature of the neck and prevent long-term health consequences. If the neck injury also resulted in a slipped or herniated disc, our chiropractor may recommend spinal decompression to help the herniated disc heal.

To prevent you from reinjuring your neck during your recovery, we may recommend certain lifestyle adjustments that will reduce the everyday stress and pressure on your neck and upper back. As you continue to heal, you may benefit from injury rehabilitation which helps to improve strength and lost flexibility in muscles and connecting tissues.
