The laws of physics do you no favors in the event of a car accident, slip and fall, sports injury, or another traumatic moment that causes whiplash. Faster than you could possibly guard yourself against, the neck whips forward and backward. As resilient as your neck can be, untreated whiplash can cause pain and other symptoms that can last weeks or longer.
Chiropractors treat whiplash by realigning the vertebrae as needed and providing relief to damaged nerves and sore muscles. We can also advise you on a proper exercise therapy regimen to regain your range of motion and comfort levels.

The most obvious symptoms of whiplash are neck pain and stiffness. You may experience other unpleasant symptoms like headaches or dizziness.
Whiplash not only can affect the vertebrae, joints, and discs, but can also can injure the tendons and muscles around the neck. Inflammation and swelling can compress spinal nerves, leading to tingling or numbness in the arms or back.
The discomfort usually begins the next day following an accident or injury, but sometimes takes longer to appear.
Car crashes, especially rear-end collisions or even minor fender benders, are the most common cause of whiplash. You don’t need to be traveling at high speed (or be struck by someone going fast) to get whiplash. Wearing your seatbelt may be the safest choice to make in a vehicle, but seatbelts do not prevent whiplash.
Back and Neck Pain Center helps auto accident victims with whiplash and other injuries to receive proper treatment and pain relief in Clearwater, FL. We also help by documenting the injuries so you have a medical record to show for insurance, compensation, or legal purposes.
After an auto injury, you may be tired, in pain, and busy with paperwork. Don’t ignore your health care needs or wait too long to receive whiplash treatment—the sooner the better, both for you and any claims you need to file!
Your impulse might be to rest the injury, but whiplash victims should seek an evaluation and treatment as soon as possible. Symptoms can get worse if you try rest alone.
During a visit to Dr. Venis, chiropractor in Clearwater, you will receive a comprehensive evaluation of your condition and recommendations for whiplash treatment.
Treatments may include:
If we determine that you have misaligned vertebrae or herniated discs, a neck adjustment can relieve pressure on the spinal joints and discs, improve motion of the cervical spine, and allow the tender areas to heal much faster. Whiplash tends to cause problems at the facet joints of the spine, which can be adjusted with chiropractic techniques.
In cases where the spine may not be misaligned, your Clearwater chiropractor can treat the whiplash pain with advanced massage therapy and other natural healing methods.
