Were you ever involved in a car or cycling accident?
Did you participate in contact sports like boxing or football?
Have you experienced some type of fall that jerked your head backwards?
Any of these instances can explain why you’re experiencing extreme neck pain, or headaches at the base of your skull. A sudden backward-and-forward motion stretches your neck’s tendon and ligaments, which can even tear in worst case scenarios. Our whiplash injury chiropractor in Ballard, Dr. Mason Greenslade, DC, helps you manage the pain using a variety of gentle chiropractic methods.
How Does Chiropractic Help with Whiplash-Related Pain?
Whiplash causes a lot of discomfort. Common symptoms include neck pain and stiffness, headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, sleeplessness, and irritability. You might also experience ringing in your ear, or difficulty with concentration and memory. Non-invasive chiropractic care might be the solution for these symptoms.
Dr. Greenslade understands that many people are hesitant to undergo chiropractic treatment because of the common twisting and cracking involved. That isn’t the case in our clinic, however. We use a variety of gentle chiropractic techniques depending on your personal diagnosis:
- Advanced Certified Activator
This technique uses a device that gently manipulates your joints.
- Sacro Occipital Technique
It uses padded blocks on key areas of the body for pain relief.
- Myosfascial Release Therapy
This treatment applies sustained pressure on the most affected areas.
None of these involve the typical intrusive chiropractic care many people don’t feel comfortable with.
Why Trust us for Your Whiplash Injury Chiropractic Needs?
Dr. Greenslade combines modern chiropractic methods that make your whiplash healing process as gentle and effective as possible. When you visit our clinic for a diagnostic consultation, you can be assured of the following:
- We understand the implications of whiplash.
The neck pain and tension that you feel is typically the result of inflammation to the tissue and due to increased temperature. Dr. Greenslade has worked with multiple whiplash patients to know the best techniques.
- We use proven technology for optimal healing.
Although ice is effective in decreasing the inflammation and pain symptoms, it is for short term. Continual icing can also hamper the body’s full healing power. We use Cold Laser Therapy to heal tissues on a cellular level. This treatment reduces swelling, increases circulation, making the cells permeable to repair.
- We mitigate your symptoms before they get worse.
Why wait until your whiplash symptoms worsen until you get treatment? Come to us once you start noticing the symptoms and we’ll pull out all the stops to make sure you heal as soon as possible.
Given these reasons, you can have peace of mind knowing that Dr. Greenslade doesn’t settle for anything less than positive results. Do take note that results might vary depending on your body’s unique healing process.
Live Your Best Life Without Pain
Whiplash symptoms generally appear within 24 hours after an incident. The neck pain, headaches, dizziness, and ringing in your ears might not disappear for weeks. A particularly bad accident can even lead to chronic pain. Dr. Greenslade helps you heal from any whiplash-related symptoms through Sacro Occipital methods.
