Neck Injuries and Whiplash Treatment

Doctor talking with patientThere are 7 common signs and symptoms of neck pain. The presence of one or more of the mentioned signs and symptoms is an indication that you should get your spine checked by a chiropractor.

As chiropractors, we use gentle adjustment and techniques to address the condition directly at the source of the pain and not just the symptoms. As the neck is a delicate structure, an experienced chiropractor is recommended.

  • Stiff Neck
  • Reduced Range of Motion
  • Sharp Pain
  • General Soreness
  • Radicular Pain (radiation of pain along the nerve from the neck to the hand)
  • Headache
  • Numbness of hands

Whiplash

Whiplash is another common condition we treat. During a car accident, the neck is whipped forward, backward, or sideways in a very quick fashion. This causes the soft tissue of the neck to be stretched and strained. This process causes massive stress and trauma to the delicate structure of the neck. Going to a chiropractor within 24 hours of the accident has shown to have the best prognosis.

Torticollis

Torticollis is a condition where the neck is asymmetrical and bent to one side. The head will look tilted to one side of the body. It can be caused by improper sleeping position, blunt force trauma, or acquired congenitally.

Spondylosis

This is typically a result of age-related wear and tear of the structures of the neck. This causes the neck to lose its stability. Pain and general soreness normally accompany this condition.

Degenerative Disc Disease

This condition is also age-related wear and tear condition that causes the disc between the spine to pinch on the nerve. The nerve from your neck runs down into your hands. This causes numbness and tingling sensations along the nerve into your extremities.

Acute Slipped Disc

This condition is a traumatic injury of the neck that is caused by blunt force trauma or accident. Instead of degenerative wear and tear over time, a massive force can also cause the discs to pinch on the nerve down to the hands.

General Posture

You’ll be surprised that the most causes of neck problems in our office are due to poor posture. Over time, poor posture causes repetitive stress injury inside the joints themselves and making the neck vulnerable to injury.

Frozen Shoulder

Frozen shoulder literally means your shoulder is frozen. You can’t move or lift your arms at the shoulders. It is painful and it feels inflamed. Patients feel frustrated as this condition affects their quality of life. Simple things like opening a door or taking something from a shelf become a hassle. There’s massive discomfort inside your shoulder and you can’t pinpoint an exact location. It occurs in women more often than men.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

This condition is a type of inflammatory disease that attacks the joints of the shoulders, hands, and other limbs. Chiropractic also has a positive outcome when treating these conditions.

Bursitis

Bursa is a small liquid cushion between the shoulder bones. When there is inflammation that causes pain and tenderness, this condition is called bursitis. Often, repetitive movement and stress cause the joints to flare up. Seeing a chiropractor before these conditions progress and becomes worse is recommended. Through adjustment and soft tissues therapy, bursitis can be treated easily.

Brachial Plexus Injury

This condition is classified as the injury to the nerves that run along with the hand. The collective of nerves that runs along the arm is known as the brachial plexus. Injury to the brachial plexus is normally caused by accident or injury. Sports injury is the most common cause. They usually manifest as numbness and tingling sensation down the arms. Gentle shoulder adjustments and addressing the cause of the injury and treating them at the source is the best treatment for this injury.
