Whiplash, a pain in the neck – Chiropractor Guildford

It’s one of the most common injuries from a car crash, and those who’ve experienced it know it can be extremely painful. In fact, whiplash, as it’s commonly known, is about more than just immediate pain. That’s because this injury to the soft tissues of the neck from a sudden jerking or “whipping” of the head can also destabilize the spine and leave you with severe, long-term pain if left untreated. Whiplash pain can even start weeks after the initial injury, many people we see don’t even realise the two are connected

It can take anywhere from hours to months for symptoms to manifest themselves, but they include:

* Blurred vision

* Headaches

* Neck, arm, shoulder and low-back pain

* Dizziness

* Neck stiffness

* Reduced range of motion in the neck

Since the health of your spine, which houses the nervous system, isn’t something you want to gamble with, many health experts recommend seeking Chiropractic care at the first sign of one or more of those indicators.

“Chiropractors are specially trained to evaluate and care for neuromusculoskeletal injuries like whiplash,” said Alex, DC, of The Guildford Spine Centre.

Chiropractic care is aimed at what’s been described as “restoring the body” centre by making manual and instrument adjustments to improve spine alignment and function. This care may be supported by massage and other soft-tissue techniques. A Doctor of Chiropractic may refer a patient for additional testing or other specialized examination procedures. In situations where it is needed, he/she may also co-manage the patient’s care with other providers.

The best part? “It’s effective while being completely drug-free,” said Dr Alex.

Happy New Year – Chiropractor Guildford

Happy New Year!

2015 is now with us and with excitement we at The Guildford Spine Centre look forward to what the new year will bring. 2014 finished the busiest we have been since opening, helping as many people as we can to better health and of course having a break to recharge our batteries to come back full of energy for the year ahead.

I had great pleasure in treating many people who had come in wanting to be able to play with their grandchildren or be able to pick presents up from under the tree but because of back pain they couldn’t. It was with great satisfaction that most were able to achieve their goal and have a happy and pain free Christmas and new year. Now that pain has eased we will go to work on stabilising and preventing any recurrence of this pain and keep everyone health in 2015.

In other sad news the masseuse at The Guildford Spine Centre – Chiropractor Guildford has sadly left, Natalia had an offer too good to refuse involving travelling to the USA. We wish her all the best and every success in the future. The search is on to find someone equally as passionate, skilled and professional to fill the space she leaves. We will keep you up to date as the situation develops so watch this space!

I leave you with a final happy new year and look forward to seeing patients new and old for a healthy and happy 2015.
