Whiplash Treatment in Gresham, OR
What is Whiplash?
A whiplash injury involves the cervical spine, which is the part that runs through the neck. It is caused when the head is moved forward and backward with excessive force. The head can be said to have been “whipped” or “lashed” in these directions, hence the injury’s name.

How is it Treated?
Treatment options have improved since the days when doctors would just put everyone with whiplash into cervical collars and then wait for healing. Now, along with treatment from a chiropractor in Gresham, it is recommended that you get therapy that includes range-of-motion exercises. Doing these exercises improves your ability to painlessly move your neck sooner than if you used a collar treatment.
