Charleston Chiropractor Whiplash
Rapid back and forth movement that is too intense and immediate for your neck to absorb results is a condition known as whiplash; most often caused by forceful impact of a car collision or other strenuous and repetitive activities. Relying on pain medication alone to deal with whiplash pain may lead to serious problems later on. Stone Spine & Disc chiropractors provide painless and effective chiropractic care that addresses whiplash symptoms to restore mobility and relieve chronic pain.
What Are the Physical Components of Whiplash Injury?
Whether due to a car collision, sports injury, work accident or any other cause, whiplash injuries can be serious and require prompt treatment from a licensed chiropractor. Stone Spine & Disc specialists evaluate possible tears to muscles and ligaments that support the spine and balance vertebrae with carefully administered spinal adjustments that relieve irritated and compressed nerves.
