SPRING HILL, FL, March 15, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Patients who have ever experienced whiplash understand how difficult and uncomfortable of an injury it is. At Accurate Chiropractic, Dr. Ann Marra works as a chiropractor for Spring Hill residents to provide whiplash relief with improved chiropractic care. When a patient has whiplash, the most effective treatment is a combination of chiropractic care, rehabilitation of the soft tissues and taking care at home.
Each individual case of whiplash is different, which makes generalized care not possible. Appropriate chiropractic treatment is unique to each whiplash injury in Spring Hill and is directed at the primary dysfunctions that are found during the initial chiropractic exam performed by Dr. Ann Marra at Accurate Chiropractic. As a chiropractor in Spring Hill, Dr. Marra might commonly enjoy different chiropractic treatments including:
- Muscle relaxation
- Ergonomic and lifestyle changes
Whiplash is a generic term that is applied to injuries of the neck caused when the neck suddenly or violently gets jolted in one direction and then another. This movement creates a whip-like motion that is most commonly seen in motor vehicle accidents. However, whiplash can also occur from falls, sports injuries, work injuries and other incidents.
"The most common symptoms of whiplash are pain and stiffness of the neck, which can impair movement. When it comes to treatment, it is important for the patient to stay active, unless there is a serious injury that requires immobilization. Chiropractic manipulation and physical therapy are also used to help control pain and reduce muscles spasms," said Dr. Ann Marra, a chiropractor in Spring Hill.
While whiplash cannot be prevented, there are a few things that can be done while in a car that may reduce your chances of severe injury. It is important to remember to always wear a seatbelt and to ensure that the headrest is adjusted to the appropriate height. Dr. Ann Marra encourages patients in Spring Hill to seek treatment for whiplash by visiting Accurate Chiropractic.
