Have you recently been involved in an auto accident involving a force of impact from the rear that caused you to experience whiplash? Our experienced chiropractor, Dr. Quinn Uzelman in Brentwood and Franklin TN is your chiropractic source for whiplash injury. The most ideal time to come see us is immediately following your whiplash experience, but it is never too late to be seen by our chiropractor if you are suffering from chronic pain. Relief can be just around the corner- at our office.
How Our Chiropractor Can Help You Heal From Whiplash
Whiplash can occur when your car is struck with impact from behind. Too many drivers these days are preoccupied with cellular phone use or simply not paying attention and whiplash is all too common. The force of impact from the rear often causes you to overextend or over-rotate your neck. While you may have experienced whiplash and think, “I’m not in pain, why see a chiropractor?” we know that the serious effects from whiplash can take several days or a week to set in. And, while you may not experience pain in your neck, pain in other regions of your back and shoulders and even chronic headache can set in. Additionally related issues that can occur if left untreated are mood and emotional well-being, blurred vision, or sleep disorders. Dr. Uzelman wants to help you prevent these health concerns from ever setting in. If you experienced whiplash in the past and are now experiencing any of these concerns, we can help heal an older injury as well.
At your visit, our Brentwood chiropractor will perform a physical examination to assess any injuries you may have sustained to soft tissues and vertebrae. He will determine how your whiplash experience is affecting you by looking at vertebral subluxations (when vertebrae are out of place), if vertebrae are pinching any nerves and if you are experiencing any discomfort or muscle weakness. Please be sure to report as many details about your impact as you can remember to help the doctor tailor your treatment plan. At this time, Dr. Uzelman may order x-rays and will also perform your first chiropractic adjustment. He will then discuss the stages of relief and corrective care with you so you have an idea of what to expect from future chiropractic visits. It is our goal to help you return to your normal activities as soon as possible.
To continue your healing process, our chiropractor may suggest the use of ice or therapeutic exercises for home care between treatments.
We can not stress enough the importance of calling us immediately following your auto accident. The absence of pain does not always translate to the absence of a potentially serious injury.
