Treating Whiplash after an Auto Accident

Treating Whiplash Injury After Auto Accident with Orlando Chiropractor

Whiplash injuries caused by auto accidents can lead hematomas, rupture ligaments, damaged blood vessels, pinched nerves, spine fractures, nerve damage, and additional injury to the joints if left untreated. It may even cause severe chronic headaches. Accident victims should see their primary care physician or a chiropractor as soon as possible to check for injuries. Even if you only suffer minor bruising, you may actually have serious injuries that only a medical professional can identify.

When you go to your primary physician or chiropractor they will likely suggest that you take some mild over-the-counter pain medication to help reduce swelling on the injury and minimize pain. You may also be required to go get an X-ray, MRI, or CT scan in order to identify all of the injuries.

Whiplash treatment helps minimize pain, restore function, and strengthen your shoulders, neck, and upper back muscles so that the injury can properly heal. Once your chiropractor has diagnosed the severity of your injury he or she can then suggest the best treatment plan for your injury. Sometimes the treatment can be as simple as over-the-counter pain medication and 72 hours of icing the injury, while other times the injury may be more serious and will require manipulation and adjustments from the chiropractor. Either way, it’s important to get some rest and remain hydrated in order to recuperate and avoid infection.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I got into a car accident. My first one ever in fact. I wasn't really sure where to turn or what to do, but I knew my back and neck were pretty messed up and I needed some help. I did a quick Google search and found exactly what I needed. The Rumley Family website was very professional appearing and they got back to me quickly. I started my treatment and felt like a part of the family from the get go. Treatment was consistent and they paid deep attention to where I actually hurt unlike some doctors that tell you what hurts when it doesn't. Im very satisfied and I would come back again"

    This year I recently got into a car accident with my boyfriend and we were referred to Rumley Family Chiropractic for treatment. They took great care of us each visit we went to and helped us get better over the months. They are a very nice family and very generous. We recommend this place better than any other place!"
