Kirkland Chiropractor who treats Whiplash
Our Kirkland chiropractor treats Whiplash; a very common injury or condition following a motor vehicle accident or (MVA). The symptoms of whiplash may not always appear immediately following an accident, but rather can take hours to weeks to develop. Common symptoms include pain and stiffness in the neck, upper back, shoulders, jaw, and arms, as well as, headaches, nausea, and dizziness.
Kirkland chiropractor, Office Manager Victoria Valine R.N. B.S.N. D.C. is an expert in dealing with whiplash injuries. Whiplash is a complex soft tissue injury to the neck or cervical spine involving the muscles, ligaments, tendons and joints of the neck, and can, result in permanent problems if left untreated by a competent chiropractor. As high as 45% of patients who had only traditional medical care, continued to have symptoms two years after their case had been legally resolved. Chiropractic care especially when coordinated with experienced massage therapy, directly works to restore normal motion and function, as well as, normal alignment of the spine following this type of injury.
Office Manager Valine has 14 years of experience in this specialty. Whiplash is one of the most common injuries arising out of even low force (low speed) accidents. There is no correlation between bodily injury and the amount of physical damage to your car. If you have been involved in a car accident it is very important that, at minimum, you be evaluated by a trusted Kirkland chiropractor for injury before you settle your claim. If untreated the affects of whiplash can live on for years or a lifetime. If you or anyone you know has been in a car accident, call us today at 425-820-2773! We will take good care of you!
