Whiplash Treatment FAQ


Whiplash is often the result of an auto accident injury, and it requires treatment from a chiropractor to relieve the condition. If you are experiencing whiplash symptoms due to an auto accident, sports injury, or another type of incident, contact Northwest Wellness Center in Dublin, OH. Let’s look at some of the questions we run into regarding whiplash.

What Is Whiplash?

Whiplash is a common injury that can happen to the muscles of the neck during accidents. Whenever the head moves quickly forward or backward and then is quickly sent in the opposite direction, whiplash can occur. This can cause a lot of pain in the neck, and make certain movements more difficult. When this occurs, the neck muscles and ligaments get stretched past where they normally are with your usual movements. This can sprain or even tear some of the soft tissues of the neck which causes pain and discomfort.

What Can Be Done for the Muscles With Whiplash?

A chiropractor can use muscle relaxation or muscle stimulation to help with any muscle dysfunction caused by an auto accident injury. This may include performing gentle stretching of the muscles that have too much tension and stimulating the muscles that are restricted. We can use gentle pressure from the fingers to help with the pain that is caused by the muscles being too tight.

Are There Other Forms of Whiplash Treatment?

Several treatments are at the disposal of a chiropractor. Which one works best for your specific case of whiplash will vary by the area affected, the intensity, and other mitigating factors. We will assess your whiplash and let you know the best treatment for you.
