Whiplash Treatment With Our Anchorage Chiropractors
Have you or a loved one recently been in any auto accidents? If so, you may be at risk for developing an injury known as whiplash.
Whiplash Diagnosis In Anchorage at True Life Chiropractic
Whiplash injury occurs when a person's neck rapidly flexes and extends, such as during an auto accident or contact sport injury. Muscles, ligaments, spinal joints, and other tissues in the upper back and shoulders can become injured or inflamed as a result, leading to symptoms including:
- TMJ (jaw) dysfunction
- Neck Pain
- Neck Stiffness
- Shoulder Pain
- Numbness and tingling in the arms, hands, and fingers
Common Chiropractic Care Methods Used To Heal Whiplash
If you've been in an auto accident, we recommend consulting with a chiropractor as soon as you are medically cleared and able--even if you aren't having any active symptoms! Often there is a delay of hours, weeks, or even months following an auto accident before symptoms of whiplash develop. Early assessment and intervention can drastically reduce the severity and duration of whiplash symptoms, and prevent chronic or recurring issues from developing.
Dr. Mike Michaud, one of the premier Anchorage chiropractors, utilizes a variety of drug-free, natural, and holistic methods to help his patients recover from whiplash. These methods reduce inflammation, reduce pain, restore normal movement, and promote tissue healing. If you consult with Dr. Michaud for whiplash treatment, you may receive any of the following auto accident injury treatments, including:
- Chiropractic adjustment to realign the spine and "reset" the nervous system
- Massage therapy to relax stiff and sore muscles and promote increased blood flow and lymphatic drainage
- Corrective exercises to promote tissue healing and improved strength of important postural muscles
- Lifestyle counseling to help modify your physical activity and/or work environment to prevent recurring injury and inflammation
