Chiropractors are experts in treating whiplash injuries and can help to relieve pain and restore mobility to the neck. Chiropractic care typically involves spinal manipulation and other manual therapies to help relieve pain and tension in the neck.
Massage therapy, ice/heat therapy, and acupuncture may also be used to help reduce inflammation and promote healing. In some cases, chiropractors may also recommend exercises or stretch to help improve range of motion and strength.

Whiplash is a common injury that can occur from a car accident, sports injury, or other sudden movements. This happens when the head is quickly twisted or bent backward and creates a strain on the neck. When this happens, your spine can be stretched or compressed and can result in damage to your ligaments, tendons, and muscles.
