Car Accident and Whiplash Care and Treatment from Your Tulsa Chiropractic Center

Whiplash

As a trusted Tulsa Chiropractor, Dr. David Fields and the team at Tulsa Chiropractic Rehab is available to help you overcome any aches and pains you’ve developed. Many people involved in a car accident suffer from a condition called whiplash. It occurs instantly and can create long-term pain and limited mobility. As a trusted Tulsa chiropractic center, we encourage you to come in for complete diagnostic testing and for treatment of these injuries.

What is Whiplash?

When you are in a car accident, especially one in which you are hit from behind, your body reacts to that force. The force causes the neck to move forward and then backward fast and with a great deal of energy. When this happens, it causes all of the bones in the cervical spine along with the muscles and tendons there to stretch. Right after the accident, you may not feel anything. But, a day or two later, you will. This pain is whiplash.


Signs of Whiplash

Many people suffer from whiplash as a result of this type of force. But, they do not develop initial pain. Even if you went to the emergency room and checked out okay, it can occur. The most common symptoms include:

  • Pain in the neck and shoulders
  • Difficulty turning or moving your head
  • Migraines and headaches
  • Difficulty moving your arms

How Is Whiplash Treated?

When you come in to see your chiropractic team in our office, we will provide a full work up to determine if you could be suffering from whiplash. We may recommend x-rays as well. From there, our goal will be to reduce the inflammation present in the neck and improve mobility.

To do this, we may recommend chiropractic adjustments that can work to properly align the cervical spinal column again. This corrects the cause of your pain which is the pressure on the nerves in this area of the spinal column. Then, we need to work to reduce the inflammation present. To do this, we may recommend specialized massage therapy in that area. This will reduce the pain and pressure. It also works to encourage your tissues to heal faster.

What Should You Do After a Car Accident?

After a car accident, visit your emergency room for initial help. Then, contact your Chiropractor. The sooner you have your pain treated, the more effective our treatments can be. Whiplash, as well as other pain caused by a car accident, isn’t going to go away on its own. However, our treatment can help you to feel better and heal naturally.
