Whiplash Pain Relief Experts in Spokane WA
Why is whiplash more serious than you think?
Have you been in a car accident lately and suffered whiplash pain or neck pain? Car accidents are way too common nowadays, and while most aren’t too significant, the damage caused by even the slightest impact may lead to much more serious health conditions.
Whiplash is caused by an abrupt impact, typically suffered as a result of a car accident or fall. The pain is the body’s way of letting us know damage to the neck has occurred. This damage can include a wide range of things such as damage to the vertebrae, discs, ligaments, and cervical muscles.
While whiplash pain may seem a normal part of being in an automobile collision, the damage caused by whiplash on a musculoskeletal and nervous-system level is far from ordinary. For this reason, neck pain experts, chiropractors, and physical therapists are adamant about having whiplash pain sufferers checked out by a medical professional to ensure no significant damage has been caused to the spine, and to further address the root cause of pain before the condition worsens.
Whiplash of any magnitude, or any abrupt movement of the spine for that matter, can quickly lead to vertebrae moving out of position, something that chiropractors call spinal misalignment or subluxation. When this occurs, it begins to negatively effect the flow of nerve energy, hindering sufficient nerve flow from the brain to every part of the body. Once this occurs, the organs which are the recipients of this critical nerve energy begin to work at a less than optimal level. As a result, our critical organs go into stress, and if left untreated, patients may begin to experience symptoms they may not have had before, such as acid reflux, trouble with digestion, trouble with allergies, onset of asthma, hypertension, fatigue, and more.
Whiplash Pain Relief and Chiropractic BioPhysics. Why is CBP the Best Option?
Neck pain experts, orthopedic surgeons, chiropractors, physical therapists, and other modalities are all viable options, and can help alleviate neck pain and pain associated with whiplash. And while these experts can all provide some degree of relief, it is important to understand why a Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) chiropractor should be considered as the go-to.
While regular chiropractors are great at joint manipulation and adjustments, their approach revolves around providing temporary relief of immediate pain. An adjustment can help restore nerve flow energy temporarily, and create a sense of euphoria for a day or two, but that doesn’t mean the underlying issue has been resolved.
Many regular chiropractors don’t take the time to take x-rays, analyze the spinal damage, and devise a custom solution for their patients. This is not the right approach at all, and in some cases, it can even make the condition worse.
Chiropractic BioPhysics on the other hand is geared towards permanent resolution of the underlying problem through the latest in imaging and spinal rehabilition technologies, ensuring that the misalignment is not only pinpointed with extreme accuracy, but that through therapy, it will not come back for as long as there isn’t another accident. While adjustments are part of this technique as well, the focus is on corrective care — meaning, putting patients through various customized and highly effective therapeautic treatments to correct and strengthen the spine back to its optimal shape.
Whiplash pain has occurred as a result of tremendous force causing the spine’s delicate vertebrae to move, so 1 or 2 “blind” adjustments are hardly enough to provide long-lasting whiplash pain relief, let alone rehabilitating the spine back into its normal shape.
There is nothing invasive, painful, or dangerous in the CBP protocol. All therpies are extremely therapeutic and gentle, slowly and accurately pulling, pushing, and tweaking the spine back into shape while you relax. It has worked wonders for thousands of our Spokane patients, and can help you regain your health.
