Chiropractic care for whiplash

Chiropractors provide the majority of care for persons suffering from neck and back pain due to whiplash. Chiropractors have always focused primarily on the spine which is unique among health care providers. Chiropractic adjustments are especially effective in reducing spinal splinting due to neck injury. Spinal splinting and lack of mobility reduced the range of motion of injured spinal areas. Reduced range of motion in injured spinal areas imposes more stress on normal areas of the spine. Spinal adjustments aim to restore normal motion to the spine and allow joints to heal in a normal fashion.
Long term immobilization of the spine has been linked to arthritic changes (spondylosis) in studies.
