What to Know About Whiplash
A sudden forced movement of the head or neck in any direction and the resulting “rebound” in the opposite direction is known as whiplash. The sudden “whipping” motion injures the surrounding and supporting tissues of the neck and head. Muscles react by tightening and contracting, creating muscle fatigue, which can result in pain and stiffness. Severe whiplash can also be associated with injury to the intervertebral joints, discs, ligaments, muscles, and nerve roots.
Salish Integrated Medical’s team will evaluate your injuries to determine the best treatment option for you. Enriched plasma therapy is a renowned treatment option for whiplash. This therapy is high in growth factors and anti-inflammatory cytokines, which can aid in the regeneration of soft tissue in the neck damaged by whiplash. To achieve the best results, enriched plasma therapy can be combined with one of our other treatments, such as chiropractic care or rehab therapy.
