Whip Lash

When chiropractors first examine a patient with whiplash, the first thing they are looking to do is determine if there is a neck or back problem involved. They do so by means of a manual examination, which includes asking the patient to flex and extend their neck and upper back, to see if there is any soreness, stiffness, or limitation in movement. In some instances, other diagnostic tools are used to give the chiropractor the most accurate diagnosis for the patient.

Some chiropractors perform a gentle, subcutaneous soft tissue massage, using their hands to stroke and manipulate soft tissues located in and around the neck, shoulders, arms, wrists, back, shoulders, head, shoulders, neck, shoulders, pelvic area, and lower back. This type of massage can help to reduce stress on delicate soft tissues and muscles, allowing them to heal more readily. Chiropractors use their hands to apply gentle pressures over soft tissues to relax tight muscles. They also use kneading and gentle rubbing movements to encourage blood flow and encourage circulation in the body. This technique, combined with manipulation of the spine, helps to decompress and relieve pressure on the spine.
