Anyone who has ever been hurt in a auto collision, has probably suffered with back pain, headaches, and neck pain. These are all symptoms of whiplash that can go unnoticed for some time after the accident. If you are in an accident you should see a Haverhill chiropractor as soon as possible, even if you are not experiencing any symptoms.

Injuries may not be evident right away but can lead to some serious problems later on. Minor discomfort may seem typical and you expect it to go away, but it can be an indication of damage to the soft tissue. Symptoms may not show up for months, or even years, after an accident, so it is important to seek the help of a professional right away.

Damage to the soft tissue will lead to back and neck pain, and headaches. This condition is referred to as whiplash, and is the most common injury due to car accidents. Whiplash is caused by the sudden intense impact that causes a dislocation, or misalignment, of the spinal cord and cervical spine.

If you experience even slight discomfort or headaches following an auto accident, see a chiropractic care professional. Chiropractics provides a holistic approach without the use of drugs or invasive surgeries. By spinal manipulation, the chiropractor is able to realign the spinal cord and cervical spine to relieve the pressure that causes the pain.

The source of the pain is treated providing the individual with results that will eventually eliminate the pain completely. Other therapies that include medication to relieve pain do not go to the core of the problem so that pain is only numbed instead of eliminated.

Injury to the soft tissue is completely treatable, and should be addressed by a Haverhill chiropractor as soon after an accident as possible. Do not wait until you are feeling the symptoms of whiplash to seek help. Waiting to get help can result in serious damage.

A Haverhill chiropractor clinic provides patients with a wide range of services. Among them are relief from whiplash pain. This condition is most commonly caused by injuries to the neck sustained during automobile accidents. However, it can also be caused by sporting injuries (football, skiing, soccer, snowboarding, surfing, skating, hockey, etc.), as well as falls from horses or bicycles.

Whiplash is caused by sudden distortions and extensions of the neck region. For example, during rear-end automobile collisions, the position of a person’s head remains stable as her or his body is suddenly shoved forward. The head then snaps forward, and back. This whipping action causes a hyper-extension of spinal ligaments and the neck. In addition, this injury affects the middle of the spinal cord (mid-back region).

The symptoms of whiplash are varied. They may develop directly after an injury, but frequently appear a few days later. Symptoms include headaches, as well as neck, back, shoulders, arm, and leg pain. This pain may be throbbing, or feel like pins and needles.

Most patients experience mild to moderate pain for several days. However, some patients experience severe, persistent pain and have restricted mobility to their heads, necks, and shoulders. Various types of chiropractic therapies can help to alleviate the pain associated with whiplash.

Chiropractic techniques rely on physical adjustments to the body. They target the body’s main structures, including the skeletal and nervous systems, as well as soft tissue (tendons, ligaments, muscles, etc.). Most sessions focus on manipulations of the spinal column. Known as Spinal Manipulations Therapy (SMT), the techniques may involve traction, stimulation, adjustments, mobilization, and massage.

In addition to applying therapeutic techniques, a Haverhill chiropractor also provides patients with beneficial, informed guidance. This includes many self-help topics which are intended to promote good health. They include hot and cold therapies, nutritional recommendations, stress reduction techniques, therapeutic exercise routines, ergonomic advice and physical fitness promotion.
