Posture correction is essential to get you looking good, feeling good, and moving well. To feel better and live with less stress and pain after your whiplash injury, postural correction is vital.
The injury can create weakness in the spine and tension in the shoulders. Everything feels so tight, so painful, and as frustration builds day after day, it can feel hopeless. There is a way to achieve this better posture, to heal this neck pain, and to reduce the headaches—spinal adjustments. Gentle spinal adjustments can improve how you feel, how you move, and make you feel better. If you get to the cause of your pain, your injury can be healed and fixed.
Injured muscles from a whiplash injury can create tightness, soreness, and pain. Muscles tear and rip with whiplash injuries, creating misalignments and postural changes, which create inflammation and pain. Healing these torn and injured muscles can take up to 18 months, and sometimes they never heal properly. By adjusting the stuck bones of the spine and healing and stabilizing the muscles of the spine, there is less pain and less stiffness.
Inflammation happens when the muscles and tendons in your spine tear or strain. Inflammation is a natural response to an injury and is there to start the healing process. The standard for care is to ice to reduce inflammation for the first two or three days, and then use moist heat for relief thereafter. Pain killers or muscles relaxers can be given, as well, to attempt to manage pain. To naturally reduce inflammation, high quality fish oil is advised. Gentle movements and stretches to sore and stiff muscles and tendons also help to reduce inflammation naturally.
Increased flexibility and the ability to move without restriction and pain after a whiplash injury is important. The stiffness and soreness can be frustrating and makes certain movements hopeless. Adjustments to the stuck bones in your neck and back feel amazing. It’s like a monkey being taken off your back. We love to see whiplash patients feeling great after their adjustments, and they move so much better.
Spinal stabilization is the freedom to move and live without pain from a whiplash injury. The culmination of postural changes, healing injured muscles, reducing inflammation, and improved flexibility is the ticket to living and moving with less pain and frustration after a whiplash injury.
