Whiplash injuries can manifest in a wide variety of ways including, neck pain, fatigue, upper back and shoulder pain, cognitive change similar to concussion and lower back pain. Due to numerous factors playing into the overall whiplash trauma it is impossible to predict the pattern of symptom that each individual will suffer. Additionally, whiplash symptoms commonly have a delay in onset often taking weeks or months to present.
Since a whiplash injury is a form of spinal pain, most common in neck, a similar treatment can be used as lumbar pain and neck pain. However, in the initial acute phase of treatment the doctors at Discovery Chiropractic recognize a patient may not be able to handle or tolerate spinal manipulative treatment initially. In the early phases of treatment it is very common to use gentle mobilization and low level laser to ease the symptoms.
At Discovery Chiropractic we believe that regular exercise and stretching can go a long way. If you are in pain there are a few simple things you can try at home to get some relief.
