Whiplash injuries should not be ignored due to the fact that they can eventually result in chronic physical damage and even psychological pain. You can’t just “sleep off” a whiplash injury, or “tough it out.” Complications grow worse when a whiplash injury is not cared for properly. Ultimately, physical pain concerts into psychological worry or anxiety due to the effects of the pain.
Consider some of the consequences that long-term whiplash injuries can cause:
- Economic struggles due to lost work
- Pain that interrupts recreation
- Anxiety and depression
The NUCCA Technique for Natural Whiplash Care
The entire quality of one’s life can be reduced substantially by one whiplash-type injury. It can affect the body’s ability to heal, a person’s posture, and even normal head movements can be painful. Rather than ignoring the pain or taking medication and hoping it goes away on its own, seeking the assistance of an upper cervical chiropractor allows you to be proactive in the healing process.

At Advanced Spinal Care, we use the NUCCA method of upper cervical chiropractic. This begins with an evaluation of the position of a person’s atlas and axis (the C1 and C2 vertebrae). This evaluation includes a patient history, a physical examination, and three-dimensional x-rays of the neck and head. If the whiplash injury caused a misalignment, this will be revealed and a treatment plan customized to your needs will be developed.
Once the misalignment is corrected, real healing can begin. The spine will no longer continue to suffer the degenerative effects of an upper cervical misalignment. Plus, many other symptoms that can be caused by such a misalignment will be eliminated. You may be surprised by just how many nagging symptoms were actually the result of a slight misalignment of the upper spine.
