Dealing with Whiplash in Lakeville?
If you have ever dealt with the symptoms of whiplash, you know how frustratingly painful it can be. A majority of auto accidents are a result of one car rear-ending another. It is fairly common in our practice to treat individuals for whiplash many weeks after their accident because they simply did not feel the effects for some time. If you are dealing with the after-effects of an auto injury then our chiropractor in Lakeville is here to provide you the treatment necessary to make a full recovery.
A successful whiplash rehabilitation necessitates a chiropractor who has experience treating the condition. Our staff is uniquely trained to assess and treat your whiplash effectively. It is imperative to begin treatment soon after an auto accident if you suspect you are injured. Even in cases where you feel fine, it is never a bad idea to get a preliminary assessment to avoid any symptoms from creeping up on you in the future.
Whiplash in Lakeville
Whiplash is a condition that should be treated as soon as it is diagnosed despite the seemingly harmless nature of it compared to the damage to your car. Individuals who let their whiplash linger often end up with symptoms that are more severe and lasting than those that could have been treated quickly with more prompt care.
The severity of the whiplash often is correlated with the positioning of your car’s headrest. A lower position tends to result in harsher symptoms since it can act as a catapult in the event of a crash. Even a collision as slow as 10 mph is enough to whip your head forward with enough force to develop symptoms.
Facts About Whiplash
- The head will move faster than the neck, similar to a cracking whip motion
- Joint capsules, spinal ligaments, intervertebral discs can all be damaged
- Injuries are more severe when the head is turned during the time of impact³
As ligaments might already be injured it is imperative that a practitioner uses an approach that takes this into consideration. Dr. Rodewald has advanced training in treating Auto Accident and whiplash-related injuries. Most chiropractors focus on reducing muscular tension, increasing range of motion, and providing temporary relief of pain. While that is all well and good, at ALIGN we take things a step further and dive deeper into what is causing your pain resulting from your Auto Accident.
