Whiplash Treatment Cented in SunnyvaI was in a car accident in which I was . . more...


Whiplash injury occurs when the body reacts to a deceleration or acceleration force by hyper-flexion or hyperextension of the neck. Whiplash injuries are very common in car accidents. Numerous studies have shown that the forces on the occupant of a damaged vehicle can be five times the force to the vehicle.

Uncomplicated cases of whiplash are the result of sprained ligaments in the neck. The muscles go into spasm as a protective mechanism following a car accident. Pain from the whiplash may be a stiff neck and may go down one or both arms.

Dr. Cady will treat you with gentle chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy, massage therapy and bracing when necessary. Treatment and improvement will begin right away. The sooner you get the right help, the faster you will feel normal again.

A more severe case of whiplash is indicated by persistent pain that lasts for more than one month. This can indicate that the whiplash more extensively damaged your muscles and nerves. Whiplash can also lead to discs rupturing in the neck like a "slipped" or herniated disc in the back. Other symptoms from a car accident and whiplash may include pain extending into the shoulder, elbow, wrist or hand, low back pain, headaches and more.
An article published in the Journal of Orthopedic Medicine in 1999 pointed out the superiority of chiropractic care for patients suffering from long term whiplash. The authors of the article noted that a previous study had shown that 26 of 28 patients or 93 percent of patients with chronic whiplash benefited from chiropractic care.

In the authors' own study, they interviewed 100 consecutive chiropractic referrals of patients with chronic whiplash. Their results also showed that of the 93 patients who remained in the study, 69 of them, or 74 percent, found improvement.

The researchers concluded their opening comments with the statement, “The results from this study provide further evidence that chiropractic is an effective treatment for chronic whiplash symptoms.”
