-headaches

-radiating pain into the arms or legs

-muscle weakness

What is whiplash?

Whiplash is a sprain/strain injury that occurs most commonly in the head and neck region as a result of a rapid acceleration-deceleration event such as an automobile accident or sports injury. It should be noted that such injuries may occur in other body parts and under less severe circumstances.

What does whiplash do to the soft tissues involved in the injury?

A whiplash injury can take many forms, most of which involve damage to any one, or all of the tissues in the support system (joint capsules, muscles, tendons, and ligaments) of a specific body region. Generally speaking, each of the above body parts comes with only a limited range of motion. When outside forces push those tissues beyond their mechanical limitations, injury and deformity occurs. The level of injury and deformity depends on many factors. Recovery depends on host of factors, as well.

What does a chiropractor do about whiplash?

A chiropractor first assesses the damage to the area of chief complaint and then makes the decision as to whether they should treat the patient or refer the patient out for imaging, another opinion, etc. More commonly, the chiropractor will adjust or mobilize any areas of restriction in order to reduce strain and facilitate the healing process, providing strengthening and stabilizing exercises to enhance the damaged support system.

What is delayed onset whiplash?

Injuries associated with motor vehicle accidents or other traumatic events often don’t present immediately. Sometimes the added stress imposed on damaged tissues takes time to manifest as pain. It is completely possible for pain to come on slowly over days, or even weeks following an injury. It is also possible for pain to come on in areas otherwise thought to be not involved in the traumatic event.

How long does it take to recover from whiplash or other traumatic injuries?

Recovery time in the case of whiplash and other traumatic injuries depends largely on the severity of the injury itself, and the length of time it takes to seek medical attention. In other words, the longer you wait, the greater the likelihood of a prolonged recovery time. It should be noted that everybody heals at different rates and in some cases, complete recovery may not even be possible.

Do I have to pay now?

If you’ve been injured in an automobile accident there are many ways to pay. Although you can use your own personal health insurance, there are additional ways to go about paying for services that you may want to explore prior to incurring charges – most of which will cover some or all of the care for treatment of injuries sustained in an accident. These methods of payment include PIP or MedPay, attorney lien, or third party liens. Each of these methods will generally lessen your out of pocket expense.

Can I get in right away?

In the case of motor vehicle accidents and other traumatic injuries, it is imperative that you seek appropriate medical attention as soon as possible. Time is of the essence. The longer you wait the worse off you may be. At CHIROWORx Spine & Rehab, we will always do our best to get you into our office as soon as possible to asses your situation and determine the appropriate route of care. Do not hesitate to contact us immediately. We will even assist you in seeking representation if you so choose.

Dr. Riley Barrett, DC

I got into a fender bender on the I-95 and the next morning I couldn’t lift my head off the pillow. Dr. Barrett was a lifesaver and was very gentle with my sore neck and shoulders. His adjustment gave me relief right away. Thank you Dr. Barrett!
