Whiplash can cause severe headaches, neck pain, and back problems. Ogden Wellness Center performs a complete whiplash therapy and evaluation on auto accident victims to determine whether or not they are suffering from whiplash and how extensive their treatment needs are.
Whiplash can be a result of other types of things as well, such as sports accidents, physical abuse or other trauma.

However, these are the different treatments for whiplash that we use in our office are:

There could be other regions of the spine affected by the trauma and when adjusted can alleviate the pressure that is causing pain in the neck.

Our chiropractic doctors will use gentle movements of the joint in a direction that has restrictions.
