You might be surprised to learn that less than 50% of all people who are injured in an automobile collision ever fully recover from the effects of that accident. A full 25% of people involved in major collisions end up with permanent pain and become disabled to some extent. Anyone who has ever been involved in such an accident can tell you about the effects of whiplash, and how painful it can be for months and sometimes years afterward.
You don’t have to live with this kind of pain, because there’s a very practical approach to addressing that pain, which is chiropractic care. Contact us at Wolke Chiropractic in North Haledon, New Jersey, so that we can determine the extent of your whiplash injury, and develop a program of treatment which will minimize any pain or discomfort you feel.
How you can tell if you have whiplash
Auto accidents are not the only way to get whiplash.
The condition known as whiplash occurs whenever there is a sudden and violent acceleration or deceleration of a motor vehicle, for instance when it comes to a sudden stop, as in a crash. This will almost always result in significant injuries to the people in the two vehicles involved. In a whiplash situation, it generally happens that the head is violently jerked beyond its normal range of motion, and all the muscles and ligaments which support the head are also jerked beyond their normal ranges.
In some cases, these muscles and ligaments can even be torn or stretched out of shape, and the vertebrae of the spine can also be forced out of their normal position. When any of these possibilities occurs, it will generally result in a very noticeable and sometimes extreme pain for the individual.
In a whiplash scenario, individuals in one vehicle are generally hit from behind or on the side by another vehicle, and that causes a transfer of all the motion from the vehicle delivering the blow, to the other vehicle which receives the blow. Naturally, this causes some serious harm to the individuals on the receiving end of that impact. It’s also possible for a whiplash event to occur in other situations, for instance in a high-speed contact sport such as football.
Treating whiplash at Wolke Chiropractic
Get on your way to treating whiplash with expert Chiropractic care.
If you’ve been involved in any type of event like this, you may feel nausea or experience vomiting, you may have ringing in the years or vertigo, you might feel dizziness or fatigue, you could have pain in the jaw, you might have pain in the back, shoulder, or neck, or you might have serious headaches afterward.
When you experience symptoms like this after having been involved in a sudden impact or stoppage, it’s also entirely possible that you have suffered a spinal injury which has resulted in a misalignment. When these kinds of injuries occur, they rarely subside on their own, and almost always call for some kind of therapy or treatment. This is especially true if you have knocked vertebrae out of alignment, because these will not slip back into alignment of their own accord.
That makes it very important that you contact us at Wolke Chiropractic, so we can diagnose exactly what has happened to you, and formulate an effective plan to treat those issues. Whatever treatment program we develop for you, it is likely to involve gentle spinal manipulation as well as some therapies and exercises which we recommend that you do at home. Working together, we can overcome the ill effects you may have experienced in a whiplash injury, even if it happened years ago.
At Wolke Chiropractic & Rehabilitation we have chiropractic care, therapeutic massage, physical therapy, and acupuncture for pain relief, spine correction and structural restoration, along with wellness plans for those looking to continue to remain healthy once their problem is corrected.
