Whiplash, or neck strain, is an injury to the soft tissues of the neck. Sudden backward and forward movement usually causes whiplash injury and is often the result of rear-end car crashes. A severe whiplash injury can also include damage to the intervertebral joints, discs, ligaments, cervical muscles and nerve roots.

Some people experience pain right away while it may takes others a few days. Symptoms of whiplash may include a stiff neck, muscle and ligament injuries, headaches or dizziness, difficulty swallowing or chewing, hoarseness, burning or prickling, shoulder pain, and even back pain. Dr. Kesselman offers specialized chiropractic techniques that may relieve the pressure that is causing your neck pain. After locating the misaligned vertebrae in your back, your chiropractor manually applies gentle pressure and repositions the vertebrae for neck pain relief. These adjustments can help restore alignment, improve mobility, and relieve neck pain and stiffness. The physical and psychological damage of whiplash can become chronic, and deteriorate your overall health. His techniques can also help to restore movement in the neck, overcome muscle weakness, and straighten the vertebra thus eliminating persistent problems.
