Whiplash

whiplashWhiplash is a type of injury that occurs when your head abruptly moves backward then immediately forward with a strong jerk. The motion resembles someone cracking a whip.

Most people are familiar with whiplash as an injury caused by an auto accident when someone is rear-ended by another vehicle.  However, car accidents are not the only cause.

The sharp and sudden movement extends muscles and ligaments located in the neck and shoulders beyond normal ranges of motion. It also may cause the spine to become misaligned. When this happens, it can lead to pain, stiffness and a variety of other symptoms.

At Baker Chiropractic and Wellness, we’ve been helping patients of all ages with whiplash for nearly 20 years.

We relieve patients from the pain and discomfort caused by whiplash using our safe and effective chiropractic care. We do not use expensive prescription medications or risky surgery.

Study Shows Effectiveness of Chiropractic Care

A study in the Journal of Orthopaedic Medicine published in 1999, confirmed the effectiveness of a 1996 study showing how patients improved with chiropractic care.

The authors from the study state, “The results from this study provide further evidence that chiropractic is an effective treatment for chronic whiplash symptoms.”
