A common auto injury, whiplash, occurs when the head and neck are whipped from back to front, similar to how a whip is cracked. The majority of car accidents are rear-end collisions with whiplash being a common result. Whiplash can also occur from other kinds of trauma, accidents, abuse, and falls. When the neck is whipped from back to front during a car accident, while playing contact sports such as football, or occasionally from an assault or other physical trauma, a number of things can happen to the spine and surrounding soft tissue. Whiplash describes the initial impact, but the results can include:
Because the majority of whiplash incidents impact the spine and the surrounding nerves and tissues, chiropractic care is an excellent avenue for treatment. Chiropractic doctors are skilled in assessing the source of the pain associated with a whiplash injury and determining a plan for effective treatment. Chiropractic treatments are gentle and non-invasive. Through small adjustments, people find great relief from the pain associated with whiplash and are set on a road to recovery. Call our team at Pure Chiropractic to discover how chiropractic care can help you recover from whiplash.
I'm so grateful to have found a chiropractor who not only excels in the activator method, but is also concerned about the well being of his patients. Dr. Pokorney takes steps to educate his patients and helps them live without pain in their day to day life. I'm so relaxed by the time I leave the office that I feel like I've spent the day at the spa.
I have never been a fan of the traditional twisting, pulling, popping. I have never heard of the activator method until I started getting treatment here at Pure Chiropractic. But man I love it. It has truly helped my health get back to normal. Honestly the best I have ever felt in years. Been dealing with a lot of pain in different areas and feel like a new person now. I will forever go to a chiropractor that uses the activator method. Thank you Dr P for all that you have done so far and all that you do in the future!!
I strongly recommend Pure Chiropractic. I have had back, neck and knee pain and mobility issues from various injuries ans work. Since seeing Dr. Pokorney I have so much more mobility and he has even relieved/corrected tons of issues I didn’t even realize. I feel better than I have in years and have been able to work a lot harder than before and still go home in little to no pain.
