Auto Accident Injuries and Whiplash
Being in an auto accident can easily cause damage to your neck. This type of injury, known as whiplash, occurs when your head is snapped back. When this occurs, the muscles, soft tissue and smaller bones in your neck can become damaged. While rest and over-the-counter pain medication can help, they might not provide you with adequate relief from soreness. With chiropractic care at our Asheville clinic, you can experience effective pain relief.
Chiropractic Treatment for Whiplash
The damage your neck sustains from whiplash during an auto accident can cause severe neck pain that makes it difficult to move your head around. You might also have headaches, pain in your shoulders, tingling in your arms, dizziness or nausea. While you might be able to cope with these symptoms right after your accident, it is important to seek treatment in order to prevent long-term damage or other complications from occurring.
Our chiropractor in Asheville can provide you with an evaluation of your condition to determine how severe your injuries are. When we know how extensive the damage to your neck is, we can create a chiropractic treatment plan that will increase your chance of enjoying pain relief and recovering fully from your injury without lingering discomfort. Our chiropractic services include spinal adjustments to correct misalignments in your upper spine that could be adding to the pain you feel. We also offer physiotherapy to enhance the results of chiropractic care, including ice therapy to reduce swelling, heat therapy to promote healing and manual therapy to help ease your muscles.
