Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/23/2014 -- Spinal Rehab Network is now treating patients with whiplash from motor vehicle accidents (MVAs). The chiropractors in Philadelphia, PA specialize in the use of massage therapy and chiropractic manipulative therapy to treat such injuries.
Whiplash is a common injury associated with car accidents. When a car is struck from behind or collides with another vehicle, the driver’s head may be thrown forward and backward very abruptly, stretching beyond its natural limits. This motion can hyperextend or tear the muscles and ligaments that support the neck and head, and cause the discs between vertebrae in the spinal column to bulge, rip, or rupture.
Left untreated, these issues can lead to chronic neck pain, headaches, vertigo, and lingering pain in the extremities. In order to avoid the need for medications or surgery down the line, Spinal Rehab Network recommends that whiplash sufferers receive massage and chiropractic manipulative therapy to stave off the worsening of these conditions. The aforementioned treatments will both reduce inflammation and minimize scar tissue, two of the main contributors to chronic pain.
To develop a specific plan for their circumstances patients can come in for an exam at one of Spinal Rehab Network’s three Philadelphia locations. During the exam one of the chiropractors will recommend a series of visits to successfully rehabilitate the patient. In a few weeks patients should be back on their feet and pain free.
