You can sustain a whiplash injury if you were injured in a physical assault, slip, trip, and fall accident, or car accident. You get whiplash when your neck is suddenly and violently jolted back and forth in a whip-like motion. It can leave you with chronic pain, dizziness, and fatigue that is hard to overcome. Our Pompano Beach whiplash treatment will help you get started on the road to recovery.
At Specific Care Chiropractic, our highly trained medical staff will diagnose and treat your whiplash. We will explain the benefits of our drug-free treatments, the anticipated timeline of your recovery, and the best way to restore your physical health after an injury. While you are on the road to recovery, we will also help you prove the cause and ongoing costs of your whiplash if you are preparing a personal injury case with your attorney.
We can help you find relief with chiropractic adjustments and physiotherapy. Schedule an appointment today!
Tell Us the Cause of Your Whiplash
According to the Mayo Clinic, whiplash is most often the result of a rear-end car accident. A sports injury or other violent jolting incident can also cause it. When you come to us for treatment, we start developing your recovery plan by understanding how you were injured in the first place. Knowing how your whiplash occurred will help us understand how to guide your recovery.
Our Team Will Assess Your Whiplash Symptoms
In some cases, whiplash is easy to diagnose. The stiffness in your neck and limited range of motion will be apparent. From the time of your injury, it might take several days for symptoms to show themselves. Whiplash symptoms include:
- Pain and stiffness
- Dizziness and fatigue
- Numbness and tingling
- An inability to turn your neck
- Sore shoulder, back, and arms
Whiplash usually worsens without treatment, so do not wait to seek professional help if you notice any of these symptoms. The result of a whiplash injury does not have to be permanent. The sooner you start on the road to recovery, the sooner you can start getting back to feeling like yourself.
Delaying Treatment Can Be Costly
When whiplash is not treated promptly, pain and discomfort will worsen. In addition, whiplash disrupts every part of your life because when you cannot turn your head, drive, work, or meet your needs. Treatment can help ease the struggle of living with whiplash. Without treatment, you could struggle with chronic headaches and pain for years. Our treatment solutions can ensure you avoid that.
