Whiplash occurs when the neck is suddenly jerked forward and then backwards, causing strain on the muscles and ligaments in the neck. It is often caused by car accidents or physical trauma, and can result in symptoms such as neck pain, headaches, dizziness, and stiffness in the neck. Any individual who has suffered some whiplash could tell you: It’s a painful condition. Unfortunately, however, persons seeking out traditional treatment for the pain and impairment associated whiplash are often prescribed opiates to manage their pain. 

Even though these medications may very well reduce and even entirely eliminate the pain of Whiplash, there are two essential problems: First, opiates treat symptom alone. That is, they silence the pain signal effectively, while the vertebral and muscle damage remains. Second, it is now an accomplished fact that opioids are no longer a viable or medically responsible long-term option for the injured American, considering the  havoc that opiate addiction has wrought throughout our nation. 

Chiropractic care offers a different option for persons suffering from Whiplash: Drug -free treatment that treats the muscular-skeletal injury directly, not just the pain signals sent therefrom.
