What Is Whiplash?

Whiplash is a common neck injury that occurs when the neck is moved forcefully back and forth. In some cases, the injury heals over time. However, other patients will continue to experience symptoms long after the accident.

What Causes Whiplash?

Whiplash is most common after automobile accidents. However, other incidents, such as physical abuse and sports accidents, can also lead to whiplash. In general, this injury can occur after any incident that is traumatic to the neck.

What Are the Symptoms of Whiplash?

Patients with whiplash may experience headaches, stiffness, and neck pain. The symptoms typically begin shortly after the injury occurs. In some cases, the symptoms of whiplash become chronic and persist for months or years after the injury.

Can Chiropractic Care Help with Whiplash?

Dr. Casab can help patients with whiplash to experience fewer symptoms and improve their mobility. In some cases, patients may experience relief from symptoms after only one treatment. In other cases, the patient may need multiple treatment sessions with Dr. Casab.

How Does Dr. Casab Approach Whiplash Treatment?

If a patient suspects that he or she may have whiplash, Dr. Casab will begin by evaluating the entire spine to confirm the diagnosis and identify any other areas that may have been affected. Once Dr. Casab has confirmed that the patient has whiplash, she will develop a treatment plan to address the injury. Dr. Casab tailors each treatment plan to the patient’s specific injuries in order to provide the best results possible.

What Treatments Help with Whiplash?

Dr. Casab may recommend a combination of treatment options to help patients with whiplash. Ultrasound therapy, stretching, and manual therapy may all be effective in reducing the symptoms of whiplash and improving the patient’s mobility. The doctor may also include massage, trigger-point therapy, and interferential electrical stimulation in the treatment plan.
