Not only is our office able to provide care following an injury, we are also concerned with providing you with the knowledge to prevent whiplash from occurring in the first place. A common contributing factor to the development of whiplash, are head rests that are positioned to low. Headrests that are placed in the down position can act as a pivot point, facilitating hyperextension and hyper-flexion of the neck during rear end collisions. As a general rule, headrests should be placed as close to the back of the neck as possible and with the top portion of the headrest level with the top of the ears. In addition to the correct positioning of the headrest, the back of the seat should be in the upright position and seat-belts should be worn at all times. Finally, safe driving is an easy way to prevent an accident from occurring in the first place.
Numerous research articles have demonstrated the effectiveness of chiropractic care for patients with whiplash induced injuries. One article publish in the Journal for the Academy of Chiropractic Orthopedist, showed spinal adjustments to be the most effective form of treatment for decreasing pain and increasing motion in the neck when compared to other various surgical, alternative, and medicinal forms of treatment. Another article documenting the Woodward study, showed statistically significant improvement in 93% of the patients who had sustained whiplash injuries and received chiropractic care. Many of these patients had taken NSAIDS and received physiotherapy, PNF, and cryotherapy prior to chiropractic care with minimal benefit.
