Understanding Whiplash 

While you may think of broken bones, the reality is that many car accident injuries are much less severe, yet still impact your quality of life. Bruises, herniated disks, lingering pain and numbness, lacerations, and muscle strains and sprains can cause long lasting damage to your body and negatively impact your life on a daily basis. Do not make the common mistake of thinking that just because nothing feels broken, you are fine after a crash. 

Whiplash is a type of neck strain common after car accidents; it usually has a delayed onset. As a result, you may get whiplash days or even weeks after the original auto accident. Symptoms of whiplash include:

  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Numbness or tingling in the arm
  • Shoulder pain
  • Neck pain
  • Stiffness and soreness

Since whiplash often shows up days or even weeks after the accident, you may have already sought medical attention for your injuries. Your primary care physician may have cleared you, yet now you find that you are suffering from acute or chronic pain. 

We always recommend that you see a chiropractor in Bellevue after a car accident. Since we are trained in assessing postural and spinal alignment, and examining joints and muscles for proper range of motion, we can check for hidden injuries that your doctor may have missed. 

If you do not treat car accident injuries like whiplash, you will continue to experience pain. When you finally do seek treatment from a Bellevue chiropractor, you will face a longer recovery time to get back to full health. 

Bellevue Chiropractic Care of Whiplash 

At Chiropractic of Bellevue, we see many clients who have been in a car accident and want to make sure that they are healthy. With these clients, we are able to perform a comprehensive chiropractic examination, which includes a physical examination and mobility tests. 

We then develop a personalized treatment plan to help your body heal from any car accident injuries, including whiplash. We pull from a range of treatment modalities to develop the best treatment plan for you.

Our services typically address inflammation to reduce your levels of pain without the usage of prescription medication, and then realign the spine and muscles to restore mobility to the affected area, and finally strengthen the area to restore your body to its full health.

Before you leave our care, we will show you neck stretches that you can perform on a regular basis to enjoy good health and prevent neck pain or strain. 

We use a gentle form of chiropractic adjustments, and will never crack your neck or back during our Bellevue car accident treatment.
