If you have experienced a car accident, sports injury, or sudden movement that stresses your head and neck, then you may have whiplash.

What is Whiplash and How Do I Know If I Have Whiplash?
Whiplash is a serious injury related to trauma to your neck, upper spinal column, shoulders, collarbone, and head. It typically is associated with auto accidents, but you can also experience whiplash from contact sports or from falling. The most common symptoms of whiplash include pain in your neck, swelling in that region, and an inability to move your neck as you normally would.
What Can a Chiropractor in East Greenwich, Providence, and Warwick RI do for Whiplash?
As your nearby chiropractor in Providence we treat whiplash at Breiding Chiropractic using a series of spinal adjustments. Our medical professionals utilize a variety of techniques including the Specific Spinal Adjustments, Physiotherapy, Custom Orthotics and Manual Therapy. (I think these need some further explanation.) These methods allow your chiropractor to determine and treat the source of your neck pain so you are better able to heal from whiplash.
When Should I Seek Treatment at Breiding Chiropractic for Whiplash?
When you are involved in any type of neck injury that results in a sudden movement of your head, you want to get help immediately. This is most important if you have workers comp, auto insurance, or healthcare coverage that will treat you if you have diagnosed whiplash. Typically you have only so much time, sometimes only days, to report such injuries as whiplash to your insurance agent in order to receive financial reimbursement for care. That’s why we suggest visiting Breiding Chiropractic as soon as you have an accident to your head and neck, even if you aren’t sure that you have whiplash. Often times it can take weeks or months for whiplash symptoms to show up, leaving you in the lurch insurance-wise.
