We’re trained in Whiplash Treatment NYC
A whiplash injury occurs when the head moves backward and then suddenly moves forward. The structures injured in this mechanism are predictable; the passive ligamentous support absorbs the brunt of trauma while the muscles splint to literally take up the slack. Predictable points of injury means whiplash treatment by the Center for Spine Care and Mobility (CSCM) is efficient and effective.
Though whiplash is most commonly associated with motor vehicle accidents, you can suffer a whiplash injury during recreational activities, a fall, or even when drying your hair. Whiplash is often indicated by pain in the neck and shoulders, but can also include dizziness and vertigo. Some patients even suffer from headaches, muscle spasms, pins and needles, and tenderness.
At CSCM, we can treat any symptoms you may experience. The first step in your whiplash treatment is reducing pain and inflammation. Restoring pain-free function and learning corrective strategies is the next goal in fully rehabilitating this condition.
Through successful whiplash treatment, NYC-based CSCM’s physicians can help diagnose, treat, and relieve your pain. At CSCM, our integrative treatment plan revolves around our 3 principle “R”s: Reset, Reload, and Reinforce. In Reset, we perform the necessary chiropractic adjustments, we Reload the body with the Active Release Technique and soft tissue massage, and, finally, we Reinforce the treatment through physical therapy.
Our unique approach is all-encompassing; all facets of treatment can be and are done under one roof. Having our physicians, physical therapists, and massage therapists work together in one place provides not only convenience, strategy, and comfort, but also the most effective and efficient treatment plan possible.
