Whiplash
Written by Rich Van Til, D.C.

What is Whiplash?

The term "whiplash" alone can be very confusing--most people think of car accidents. An auto accident is not the only time that whiplash happens though. Whiplash can occur any time there is a sudden start or stop of movement (sometimes one followed by the other). The soft tissue is damaged and the structures are moved in ways that they were not created to.

Can Chiropractic Help?

Chiropractic helps restore movement and alignment to those damaged structures and is a necessary part of recovery from whiplash if the patient wants to make a full recovery. The main structures we are talking about are vertebrae, which is what chiropractic is all about!
