Whiplash

WOODINVILLE CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR WHIPLASH INJURY

It is common to suffer a whiplash injury when you have been in an auto accident. Unfortunately, the symptoms of a whiplash injury do not always show up immediately. They may appear the next day, the next week, or even a month later. Getting a comprehensive professional evaluation, to detect a whiplash injury following an auto accident, is always important. Dr Myron Gudmundson and Dr Sara Hamill, at Woodinville Chiropractic, are ready to help you.

Whiplash is an injury to the neck that has been caused by rapid, back and forth motion. This usually happens when your car gets rear-ended, but may occur when your car is impacted from any direction. Whiplash is also possible following trauma, physical abuse, or even sporting accidents. Your body is thrown forward, but your head remains in place, then snaps forward, like a cracking whip, causing damage to muscles, ligaments, spinal discs, nerves and even bones. 

At Woodinville Chiropractic, we can help relieve the neck pain, stiffness and headaches, which are the most common symptoms of a whiplash injury, especially when the cervical spine (neck) has been misaligned. Gentle adjustments to the spine and surrounding tissue, help put the neuromusculoskeletal system back into proper alignment, so that natural healing may occur.

Symptoms of whiplash may include:

  1.  Neck pain/stiffness
  2.  Increased pain with neck motion
  3.  Decreased ability to move neck
  4.  Headaches
  5.  Shoulder/upper back/arm pain
  6.  Tingling/numbness in arms
  7.  Difficulty concentrating/memory problems
  8.  Fatigue
  9.  Irritability
  10.  Depression
  11.  Difficulty sleeping
  12.  Dizziness
  13.  Changes in vision
  14.  Ringing in ears

While most people recover from whiplash within a few weeks or months, some people experience chronic pain for years. Woodinville Chiropractic can help reduce those symptoms, and increase your ability to function throughout your day, by realigning your spine, and starting you on the road to natural healing. Allow Dr Myron Gudmundson and Dr Sara Hamill to provide you with gentle, safe, and effective chiropractic care.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Last summer I suffered an injury that kept me from my profession. I am a horse trainer and compete professionally as a barrel racer. Dr. Myron, began working on me immediately following the injury. He was amazing in his knowledge of whole body health that within a short time I was back to competing and because of his thorough care from suggestions of stretching, ice and other remedies I am back to the top of my game and free of pain. I felt he thought outside the box to do what was in my best interest!

    I highly recommend Dr. Myron Gudmundson."
