Whiplash occurs when an individual sustains a blow to the head or has their head snapped forward and backward very quickly, such as in a car accident. This stretches the neck beyond its natural limits and can hyperextend or tear the muscles and ligaments supporting the head and neck. This hyperextension causes the discs between the spinal vertebrae to bulge, rip, and rupture, which is what leads to chronic whiplash pain.
Through techniques such as spinal and joint manipulation, the most common therapeutic procedure performed by chiropractors, which involves applying controlled force to injured tissue to restore mobility, and alleviate pain and muscle tightness. Another common treatment is Non-Invasive Trigger Point Therapy, using a variable controlled instrument that manages soft tissue adhesion, trigger point lesions, and deep fascia restrictions.
