Whiplash and neck strains can take many forms immediately after, or days following a car accident. Speeds as low as 15 mph, even with passengers wearing seatbelts, can result in injury. Everything from tenderness, stiffness, to decreased range of motion and increased headaches can occur. It is never a good idea to take a “wait and see” approach when it comes to neck and back issues. Waiting to be treated can cause more persistent and long-term problems down the road.
At the Pain & Injury Clinic of Utah, located in Ogden, UT we foster a safe, friendly, and professional environment that puts our clients at ease. Our main goal is to get you back to your normal routine as soon as possible. This is done through pain management and a regime of clinical and therapeutic techniques.
Our chiropractors start with an in-depth consultation. We interview each patient in order to identify the cause and severity of the pain. Your individualized treatment plan will consist of realignment, adjustments, and massage treatments to alleviate your pain. Perhaps the most important aspect of this regime is time. A series of sessions is a realistic timeline that gradually increases pressure during adjustments and massages to promote a full and healthy recovery.
Stretching exercises are often part of the treatment plan to improve flexibility and range of motion. Lastly, physical therapy and light exercises will help to combat muscle wasting that may have occurred during inactivity. As a result, exercises that isolate the neck and shoulder areas help restore muscle size and strength.
Due to the severity of whiplash injuries, recovery can take anywhere from four weeks to months. Daily home exercises may be necessary between follow-up appointments to the clinic. Our experienced and licensed professionals are here to make your progress as successful as possible. Schedule a complimentary chiropractic consultation today. Additionally, we will work with your insurance company to help you get treatment after an auto accident. Call today, 801-475-1910.
