What is Whiplash?

Whiplash is an injury effecting the neck that is caused by a traumatic impact causing the neck to “whip” back and forth resulting in inflammation, pain and/or headaches and possible permanent ligament damage. These types of injuries commonly occur in auto accidents and sports injuries. Left untreated, whiplash may become severe. Some patients may feel dizziness, numbness and tingling, loss of movement in the neck, sleep issues, and ringing in the ears. 

How do we Diagnose Whiplash?

Whiplash is diagnosed by a clinical examination using range-or motion- techniques, Myovision DynoROM,  and state of the art X-Ray software computer program to determine the extent of the injury. 

How do we Treat Whiplash?

A care plan incorporating exercise therapy, manual therapy, spinal manipulation therapy, and self-care regimens are clinically proven to reduce the pain and loss of normal function caused by whiplash. The key to treating whiplash is managing the pain while restoring function.
