Whiplash Recovery Services In The Tri Cities

Improve Motion And Restore Function

Whiplash can be a debilitating condition, leaving you stiff, sore, and struggling to move your neck freely. If you have recently been in an accident and are experiencing whiplash symptoms, Northwest Injury Clinics is here to help. Our team of experienced professionals is dedicated to helping you recover from whiplash and regain full motion and function.

What is Whiplash?

Whiplash is a soft tissue injury that occurs when the head is forced to move back and forth rapidly, often caused by a car accident. This sudden movement can strain, tear, or inflame the muscles, ligaments, and tendons in the neck.

Common Causes of Whiplash

While car accidents are the most common cause of whiplash, it can also occur from other incidents, such as:

  • Sports injuries
  • Falls
  • Amusement park rides
  • Physical assaults
  • Diving injuries

Symptoms of Whiplash To Look Out For

Whiplash symptoms can vary depending on the severity of the injury. Some common symptoms include:

  • Neck pain and stiffness
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Blurred vision
  • Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
  • Sleep disturbances

If you experience any of these symptoms after an accident, it's crucial to seek medical attention right away.

What Happens At Your First Appointment 

During your initial appointment at Northwest Injury Clinics, our chiropractors will conduct a thorough evaluation to diagnose whiplash and determine the extent of your injury.  This  evaluation will include a detailed discussion of your medical history and the accident that caused your whiplash, an examination to assess your range of motion, tenderness, and reflexes, and additional diagnostic tests, if necessary.

Based on this evaluation, your chiropractor will develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. Our treatment plans often incorporate a variety of services to optimize your recovery,  such as:

  • Chiropractic adjustments: Gentle adjustments can improve spinal alignment, reduce pain, and restore mobility.
  • Massage therapy: Massage can help relax tight muscles, improve circulation, and reduce pain.
  • Physical therapy: Exercises prescribed by a physical therapist can strengthen muscles and improve flexibility, aiding in recovery.
  • Pain medication: In some cases, pain medication may be prescribed to manage pain during the healing process.
