Car Accidents - Whiplash

carAs you may know, whiplash is most commonly caused from having been in a car accident.

Whiplash can also occur from car accidents , slips, falls, or even sports injuries.  The consequence of whiplash injuries can be neck pain, upper back pain, pain or numbness radiating into the arms of hands, reduced ability to turn and bend, headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, and even low back pain.  Symptoms can start immediately or weeks later after the whiplash injury.  This is why it is so important to get a Spinal check up  after a injury.  

Whiplash  occurs when the head is abruptly moved in some or all directions  and the muscles, ligaments and tendons supporting the neck and head get sprained or strained.  The spinal discs between the vertebrae can bulge.  The spine can be forced out of alignment, reducing range-of-motion.  And the spinal nerve roots in the neck and get stretched and irritated. This is when patients experience neck stiffness and pain.  Remember a car accident doesn't have to be at a high speed in order to cause damage or injury.  It can happen as little as

Dr.  Jordan has treated thousands of patients with this type of injury over the years.  The treatment approach at Family First is to use specific Chiropractic adjustments, with  electrical stimulation, cryotherapy, cold laser, intersegmental traction, and/or massage therapy to help reduce pain and swelling .  This will help the body to return to proper function, motion in the cervical spine and position of the spinal bones.  If caught early enough, inflammation can be reduced and scar tissue can can often be minimized.

At Family First Chiropractic and Acupuncture we except most insurance policies and we bill the responsible party.  We do except liability, Medpay and PIP insurance policies .

I went in with extreme pain in my neck and shoulder and down to my elbow. Afterwards I took some of the natural turmeric and drank lots of water. The same day I drove 2 1/2 hours to help my dad move and felt great!

I love this group of ladies they are always very sweet when I come in. They brighten my day and give me the little bit of peace that I crave on the toughest days. Originally purchased a Groupon to try them out for migraines and have purchased multiple sessions due to positive results. I love the fee...
