Causes of Whiplash

When a car is hit, occupants of the car are often jerked forward or backward, putting a strain on the muscles of the neck. When this happens, the muscles and ligaments in the neck develop small tears.

Symptoms of Whiplash

Symptoms of whiplash include:

  • Pain and tenderness in the neck and shoulders
  • Muscle stiffness
  • Headaches
  • Limited range of motion
  • Irritability
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Blurred vision

Often these symptoms take days or weeks to manifest after the accident occurs.

Because the symptoms of whiplash can take days or weeks to manifest after an accident occurs, this means that many patients will wait to seek an auto injury chiropractor in Tempe. During this time, the patient may develop complications.

Waiting to seek care after an injury occurs can lead to chronic pain and long-term injury. Seeking care from a chiropractor can help ensure that the injury heals properly and in a timely fashion.

Chiropractic Care for Whiplash from an Auto Accident

The primary method many chiropractors use to treat whiplash is a spinal adjustment. During the spinal adjustment process, the chiropractor makes adjustments to the vertebrae to reduce pressure on the spinal cord. These adjustments are done by hand or with tools. In addition to spinal adjustment, chiropractors also use the following techniques to treat whiplash:

  • Lifestyle adjustment. We give lifestyle advice to patients to help them develop habits and behaviors that can help speed the healing process. Lifestyle advice also helps patients avoid behaviors and lifestyle choices that can exacerbate injuries.
  • Massage therapy. Massage therapy is a technique that we use to reduce stiffness in the muscles and reduce muscle tension. Massage therapy also improves circulation at the site of the injury to help the patient heal.
  • Stretches and exercises. Stretches and exercises can help patients improve their range of motion and strengthen the muscles during the healing process.
  • Nutrition counseling. Our nutrition counseling services help ensure that patients have the energy they need to exercise during the healing process. We also recommend foods that have anti-inflammatory properties, to help patients control swelling and inflammation.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Coyote Chiropractic and Wellness Center, P.C. is the best at what they do and make you feel right at home."
    John Tempe, AZ
  • "My medical doctor referred me to Dr. Gross for headaches that did not respond to traditional medical care (medicine and PT). He found that a neck problem was causing my headaches. After some treatment, I felt much better and come in for periodic care to prevent the problems from coming back."
    Tony V.
  • "I had lower back pain and numbness in my legs after the recent birth of my son. After treatment, the numbness is gone and I have no lower back pain. They have a professional office staff; great doctors and therapists; and it was an overall fantastic experience. I would recommend the office to friends."

    Our shoulder joints have the greatest range of motion of any of the musculoskeletal joints in our bodies.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
