Chiropractic and Physical Therapy Treatment for Whiplash - Pain Care Associates

If you are struggling with neck pain and other symptoms following an auto accident, fall, sports injury or other traumatic event, you may be wondering whether you have whiplash -- and if you do, what you can do about it. Here at Pain Care Associates, we commonly put multiple treatment techniques to work on acute or chronic pain. Two of these techniques, chiropractic treatment and physical therapy, can serve as powerful one-two punch against pain and other neck-related problems.

To understand how these therapies work together to ease your symptoms, we must first understand what is causing those symptoms. In the case of classic whiplash, the damage occurs when your head is suddenly thrown forward, and then backward, by an impact. The strain on your cervical spine can cause vertebrae to shift and discs to push outward onto nerve roots. This type of pinched nerve condition can cause all kinds of odd, uncomfortable symptoms, ranging from tingling in the hands to severe neck pain, headaches and blurry vision. Additionally, your neck's muscles and connective tissues can be strained and torn, causing significant stiffness and pain.


Bring Your Acute or Chronic Pain to Us in Little Rock

Since a neck injury typically involves nerves, spinal discs and soft tissues, our combination of therapies is useful for addressing these multiple problems. Chiropractic adjustment, based on our evaluation of your spinal column and symptoms, can help get that unwanted pressure off of the nerves for pain relief without the use of drugs. At the same time, we can relieve muscle stiffness and tension through gentle stretches or, if necessary, trigger point therapy to release deep muscle knots that refer pain throughout the body. We may also prescribe exercises that you can do at home to help stabilize your spinal and disc alignment, restore your range of motion, and build up strength in the neck to make it less vulnerable to injury. Let us help you ditch that pain in the neck!
