Knox County Chiropractor, Dr. Jeffrey Hayden, Alleviates Whiplash Injury Pain Safely
Galesburg IL, 28-FEBRUARY-2015 - Hayden Chiropractic and Dr. Jeffrey Hayden D. C., are pleased to announce that the practice allows Knox County residents to recover from whiplash injuries safely. The Knox County chiropractic professionals are knowledgeable about techniques and methods which do not rely on painkillers. Whiplash injuries are usually the result of auto accidents, but may also occur if the victim slips and falls.
The extreme movement of the head is the cause of the injury. A forceful movement of the head is often enough to do damage to the soft tissue in the neck and shoulders. Whiplash forces are incurred when the head is thrown forward or to the side, beyond the normal range of motion. The pain may not be felt immediately, but the damage is still there. The doctor can determine the location and the extent of the injury. Scheduling a consultation with the chiropractor soon after the accident is critical to reduce the recovery time.
The doctor does a physical examination and may require digital imaging studies in order to determine the extent of the damage to the muscles of the neck and shoulder. Adjustment of the cervical vertebral column may also be necessary in order to begin the recovery process quickly.
By beginning therapy promptly, the recovery time and the pain level is often reduced significantly. Less pain means that the body is able to begin the work of healing more quickly. No pharmaceuticals are incorporated into the program of therapy. Natural solutions might include heat and cold therapy and the use of ultrasound. The chiropractor may use massage. Once the acute pain level is moderated, the doctor provides suggestions for long term health improvement.
