How Does Orr Chiropractic Center Combine Chiropractic Treatments to Repair Damage Caused From Whiplash?
Whiplash (also called hyperflexion/hyperextension) is a relatively common injury occurring to a person’s neck following any sudden jolt of force. This injury affects both bone structure and causes soft tissue damage. Symptoms of whiplash include: neck and shoulder pain, headache, fatigue, dizziness, digestive upset, arm pain and weakness, ringing in the ear and back pain.
Targeting the Source of Your Whiplash
Not only is the event that caused your whiplash traumatic to your body, it is usually a cause of stress as well. Whether it was a sudden movement you made while at work and your body was tight because of tension and job pressure, or it was an auto accident causing you new, unappreciated financial burden, stress is most likely a factor. At Orr Chiropractic we want to relieve that stress and take the tension out of your body to expedite your recovery.
Reversing Whiplash Struggles with Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic solutions are unique to each whiplash injury. Our chiropractic evaluations determine which areas of the body are the most in pain, but also locate the source of the pain to make targeted adjustments. By using these assessments we can put together a recovery plan that will work best for your individual needs.
There are a number of common care methods that have been proven effective include manipulation, muscle relaxation and stimulation, and various exercises. These whiplash exercises train the nervous system to better coordinate and control movement patterns, improving the ability of the neck muscles to maintain the stability of the neck. Overtime, these treatments can help reduce your suffering and get your body back to a healthy state.
We want to help realign your spine and alleviate the tension and pressure in your muscles that are keeping your body from functioning at its optimal level. At Orr Chiropractic of Central Ohio we offer a variety of services to help treat these areas of weakness in your body. Some services that might be beneficial for whiplash injuries include our far infrared sauna and our massage therapy services. Both of these services focus on the relaxation of the body, one through warming the body from the inside to release toxins and improve the body’s ability to repair itself and the other through healing touch that will allow proper nerve flow and relax surrounding muscles to relieve tension.
