Whiplash

Whiplash Treatment in Lexington, KY

When someone is struck from behind following an auto accident many people tend to experience whiplash. This occurs when the head and neck is forcefully thrust forward and then backwards again. This is what doctors and chiropractors call neck strain or neck sprain. In accidents where patients suffer whiplash injuries, the damage affects the discs, nerve roots, intervertebral joints, the ligaments and the cervical muscles. At Lynch Chiropractic Center in Lexington, our chiropractor can provide a comprehensive treatment plan to treat your whiplash.

Symptoms of Whiplash

The symptoms associated with whiplash may not be visible or noticeable until 24 hours or longer. Sometimes the initial shock of an impact to the body is not felt at the time of the accident. However, once things settle down, the body begins to experience or show signs of whiplash. However, an auto accident is not the only way people get whiplash. Sports and physical activities are other ways people can end up with whiplash. 

 Symptoms include:

  • Headaches
  • Neck stiffness
  • Neck pain
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Low back pain
  • Shoulder pain between the blades
  • Numbness or pain in the hand or arm
  • Concentration or memory problems
  • Irritability or difficulty sleeping

How Can a Car Accident Chiropractor Help Me?

Unlike doctors, a chiropractor offers holistic and alternative treatments to treat a variety of physical ailments. When you visit our chiropractor, you will be asked a series of questions regarding your accident or injury. Our chiropractor may then perform a physical exam to check the flexibility of your joints. This is called ROM or range-of-motion. What we are looking for are signs of tenderness and movement limitation following pain.

We normally order an X-ray to confirm or rule out other possible causes of your pain such as arthritis. Other tests we may order are MRIs, and CT scans. These tests show us if there is any inflammation build up in the nerves, spinal cords or soft tissue areas. Sometimes a PET scan may be necessary, if brain injury damage is suspected. After all the tests are in and are evaluated, we can then move forward with a treatment plan.

The Lynch family truly cares for each of their patients and makes you feel welcome and goes out of their way to get you the best care. Dr. Ryan Lynch personally called another chiropractor for me in Louisiana when I went on vacation to ensure that I continued my treatments while out of town. Courteous, Caring, Sincere, Honest, & Professional are terms I often use when I talk about Lynch Chiropractic Care!!"

  • "Dr. Ryan Lynch has been adjusting my back and neck for the past month, and I will have to say that each time I go, I come out feeling more mobile and less in pain. He also explains what he is about to do and why, making you feel more involved in the procedure. The aftermath of my curved spine and a motorcycle accident started to show in forms of discomfort and pain in the recent months, and this was the place a friend of mine had highly recommended. I am glad to have taken the recommendation."
