How We Help Car Accident Trauma & Whiplash

Car accidents, particularly those involving whiplash injuries, can have profound effects on your life, leaving you with debilitating pain and discomfort that affects your ability to work, enjoy activities, and even perform simple tasks. Sometimes it takes weeks or months for these effects to fully surface. As if that wasn’t hard enough, after a car accident, you find yourself grappling with a myriad of physical and emotional challenges because the body stores and processes all of the emotions we feel.

Car Accidents & Whiplash Lead To Spinal Inflammation

What many people may not realize is that car accidents and whiplash injuries can lead to spinal inflammation, triggering a cascade of symptoms like midback pain, neck pain, migraines, headaches, and low back pain, which drastically affect your ability to do normal things, which in turn triggers all of those feelings of confusion, frustration, anger, and brain fog . Fortunately, we offer a holistic chiropractic approach to addressing these issues, adding in therapies like red light therapy (low-level laser therapy) and myofascial therapy that play a crucial role in providing the amazing relief we deliver and helping you reclaim your life without drugs or surgery or their negative side effects.

Car accidents, even minor ones, can have lasting effects on your body, particularly your spine and surrounding tissues. Whiplash injuries, which occur when the head is forcefully jerked forward and backward, can cause damage to your muscles, ligaments, and nerves in the neck and upper back, leading to the inflammation and pain. Would you be surprised to find out that whiplash can happen with impacts as slow as 10 miles an hour?

Whiplash Is More Than Just Neck Pain

Whiplash leads to spinal inflammation, in particular, which contributes to a wide range of symptoms beyond just your neck pain and stiffness. It also shows up as midback pain, migraines, headaches, and low back pain. All of these pains together are hard to get addressed at any one office, making it difficult to find relief and regain normal function. 

That’s why we offer a comprehensive chiropractic solution to address the underlying issues caused by car accidents and whiplash injuries. Through gentle spinal adjustments, we realign your spine, alleviate pressure on the nerves, and reduce inflammation in the affected areas. This not only helps alleviate your pain but also promotes healing and restores proper function to your spine and nervous system.

Multiple Therapies Help Whiplash and Car Accident Trauma

In addition to gentle, precise spinal adjustments, we also use therapies like red light therapy and myofascial therapy to speed up your healing process! Red light therapy utilizes specific wavelengths of light to penetrate deep into your muscles, joints, and nerves, stimulating repair and reducing inflammation and pain. This therapy can help speed up the healing process by as much as two times, relieves your pain, and promotes relaxation in the muscles. 

Myofascial therapy (which can look similar to certain aspects of massage and also includes specific stretches), focuses on releasing tension and adhesions within the fascia, the connective tissue that surrounds and supports the muscles. While massage focuses on the muscles, myofascial therapy helps with problems in the fascia. We specifically find places where the fascia has been affected by your car accident and apply the myofascial therapy along with the red light therapy and chiropractic adjustments to help improve mobility, alleviate pain, and reduce the risk of future issues. In other words, we help you get better faster and stay better longer. 

By addressing both the structural and functional aspects of car accidents and whiplash injuries, our care offers a holistic approach to healing that goes beyond just “managing” your symptoms. What if we got past “managing” and got to “fixing”?
