Whiplash Treatment in Orlando, FL

If you have been involved in a car accident or other type of trauma that led to whiplash, you know the pain it can cause. While it is expected to go away on its own, it can be treated to help it heal faster and relieve your pain. If you suspect you’re suffering from whiplash and you live in the Orlando area, contact Orlando Injury Medicine and schedule a consultation with our chiropractor, Dr. Robitaille. We understand that whiplash can be painful, however, with treatment, you can feel better and ready to get back to your life.


What Is Whiplash?

Whiplash happens when the head and neck move one direction quickly and then suddenly in another direction. This is a common occurrence during a car accident when the car stops suddenly, whipping the head and neck forward and then back. This can cause damage to the muscles in the neck. It also causes the ligaments and tendons of your neck to extend past their normal range of function. It may even tear the ligaments, muscles, or tendons.

The neck is a vital region for a variety of body movements, and the pain from this condition can keep you from doing even the simplest of tasks. The inflammation of the neck can not only cause pain, it can cause stiffness that makes some movements impossible. The pain and stiffness may manifest on the same day as your traumatic event, or it could take days or even weeks for it to appear. For this reason, it's important to see a chiropractor as soon as possible after an auto accident to help alleviate the condition, even if you are not feeling the full extent of the pain.

Chiropractic Treatments for Whiplash

One of the ways to treat whiplash is with chiropractic treatments. These treatments generally require manual manipulation of the spine so that anything that was pushed out of alignment during the accident can be properly re-aligned. Re-aligning the spine and neck can help reduce irritation to the vertebrae and muscles. Your treatment plan will likely require other treatment types along with spinal manipulation.

When you come in for your assessment, there will be tests performed to confirm that you have whiplash. These tests may include an MRI or an x-ray to see exactly what has been damaged inside the neck. From there, our chiropractor will create a personalized treatment plan for you that helps integrate the treatments into your recovery period.
