  • 1. Now A Leading Chiropractor In Knox County Helps Locals Get Whiplash Pain Relief
  • 2. When someone is suffering from a whiplash injury, alleviating the serious pain that results is uppermost in his or her mind. This neck pain usually occurs in a car crash. Your Knox County chiropractor will work towards reducing the severity of that pain.
  • 3. An office visit will consist of an examination of the entire spinal column, from neck to coccyx, which is the lower end of the spine. An x-ray may be required and sometimes an MRI. Severity of the pain must be evaluated before care can begin.
  • 4. Ligament pain, muscle spasms and significantly restricted motion may occur. Some individuals must wear a neck brace for a period of time. This stabilizes the head until it is less difficult to turn it.
  • 5. The chiropractor may watch how you walk as a means of aiding in the evaluation. Your ability to move will indicate the severity of the injuries. Only after an assessment will it be possible to recommend the optimal care plan for you.
  • 6. Immediately following the accident, your pain may be in its most acute stage. Gentle stretches and ice applications may help during that period of time. As the inflammation subsides, care can begin to include gentle spinal adjustments.
  • 7. The spinal adjustment technique is selected to alleviate pain. There are also manual applications used to improve soft tissue injuries. Massage and trigger point pressure are among them. The trigger point technique relieves muscular tension.
  • 8. Ultrasound may be added to reduce inflammation by stimulating muscles, thereby relieving the spasms and easing stiffness. Ultrasound sends a low frequency electric current to the affected area. These sound waves increase circulation by administering mild heat to the area.
  • 9. The optimal methods applicable to your set of injuries will be used to alleviate your pain. As healing occurs your neck pain will subside. The final goal of your Knox County chiropractor is to return you to work and restore the quality of life you once enjoyed.
