Your Source for Conservative Whiplash Treatment in Stillwater
An auto accident, fall in the home, sports mishap or other sudden event can cause a great deal of pain and suffering in the briefest of moments -- and whiplash is a common example. This form of damage to the vertebrae and tissues of the neck is associated with sharp, violent impacts, leaving you with a variety of symptoms that make everyday life unbearable or impossible. This condition needs to be diagnosed immediately to permit soonest possible treatment. Northland Chiropractic Clinic is proud to serve as your source of conservative, drug-free whiplash treatment in Stillwater MN.
Whiplash gets its ominous-sounding name from the whip-like motions that do all the damage. When, for example, your car comes to a sudden halt, the unrestrained parts of your body (including the neck and head) keep moving. Your head's weight may throw it forward and then backward so forcefully that the neck undergoes severe hyperflexion and hyperextension. The next thing you know, you've got torn neck muscles, pinched cervical nerve roots due to herniated cervical discs, and subluxations in the vertebral joints that alter your neck curvature and flexibility. You may experience such debilitating symptoms as:
- Neck pain
- An inability to turn your head
- Tingling, pain or numbness in your arms and hands
- Headaches or migraines
- Vision or hearing disturbances
- Mood changes
- Cognitive problems
Why You Should See Your Stillwater Chiropractor Immediately
While some acute injuries can heal themselves without help, whiplash-related problems may linger and worsen until you get your underlying cervical spinal changes corrected. In fact, you need to schedule an immediate appointment with your Stillwater chiropractor even if you think you've escaped injury. That's because the adrenalin flowing through your body may have numbed or delayed any symptoms, giving you a false sense of well-being and causing you to go without much-needed care. The earlier we deal with your injury, the more easily we can resolve it.
