At Circle Chiropractic Center, P.C., we're dedicated to being your go-to clinic for skilled chiropractic care in Fairfax and the surrounding areas. One of the more common injuries we see and treat here in our office is that of whiplash. Our very own Dr. Christopher Frey is here to assist you in finding the relief you need from your symptoms without invasive treatments or the use of risky medications.
Typically, whiplash occurs as a result of an auto accident injury or similar trauma. Specifically, whiplash refers to a spinal injury where the upper area of the spine (the cervical spine) is abruptly forced forward, such as into a seat belt, while the lower spine remains in place. The end result is that the ligaments, tendons, and muscles surrounding the spine can become torn and damaged.
In most cases, symptoms of whiplash won't show up for a day or two, but include:
The good news is that chiropractic care can be effective in treating whiplash directly at its source without the need for invasive procedures or prescription medications. Specifically, we can provide spinal adjustment procedures to help promote healing by encouraging circulation in the affected areas. Furthermore, spinal adjustments work to correct poor alignment in the spine and thus relieve excess pressure on nerves, which can help you find relief from whiplash symptoms such as back and neck pain.
Spinal adjustments, when combined with other chiropractic treatments like corrective exercises and physical therapy, can be an effective and safe way to treat your whiplash injury and ensure quick healing.
If you're suffering from whiplash, now is the time to schedule an appointment with our experienced Fairfax chiropractor. Give Circle Chiropractic Center, P.C. a call today at (703) 385-2990 to request your appointment with our team.
