Vehicle Accidents & Whiplash Treatment in Warwick

Book Appointment

Supporting Your Recovery From Whiplash

Your body can ache all over following even a minor vehicle collision. Whiplash, which affects the soft tissues of the neck, can leave you feeling stiff and exhausted on top of being in pain.

Whether your whiplash is a result of a vehicle accident, a sports injury, or another cause, we’re here to help you find relief from your pain through customized, hands-on treatment.

What Is Whiplash?

Whiplash is a result of the head jerking backward and forward suddenly under major force. It’s a sprain of the neck’s muscles and ligaments.

Typically, symptoms crop up within 24 hours of the inciting incident, but sometimes it may take a few days to feel the full effects. While whiplash symptoms may resolve within weeks, in some cases, they can last months or years.

The symptoms of whiplash include:

  • Neck pain 
  • Neck stiffness and reduced range of motion
  • Shoulder & upper back pain
  • Tingling/pins & needles in the affected area
  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Headaches at the base of the skull

How Can a Chiropractor Help With Whiplash?

Our goal at your first appointment is to learn what you’re going through and whether we can help you in your whiplash recovery. In your initial consultation, your chiropractor will discuss your symptoms and talk about your goals for treatment. 

Next, your doctor will perform a chiropractic examination, testing your reflexes, your ability to turn and bend, and other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical examinations. That said, we will not do anything during your assessment without your consent.

Sometimes, we’ll take X-rays as part of our full evaluation, so we can rule out more serious conditions and create an effective treatment plan for you.

Sharing Our Recommendations

During your appointment, your chiropractor will give you a report of findings to answer 3 key questions:

  • Can you help me?
  • What do you recommend that I do to get better?
  • How much is it going to cost?

If we believe we can help, we’ll explain our recommended treatment plan. If you have a condition that requires care from other providers, the doctor will let you know.

Patients will generally be provided with their first treatment at the end of the appointment. This may include spinal adjustments (including spinal decompression), physiotherapy treatments, and/or soft tissue therapies.

For whiplash, an effective spinal manipulation is often a slow movement of your neck to address pain and restricted movement, though every person’s needs vary. Your chiropractor may also perform gentle stretches and trigger point pressure in the relevant areas.

Treatment is interactive, so you can always express any concerns you have about the style of adjustment or ask questions about the procedure.

Finally, we’ll provide you with a wellness program to follow at home that may include stretches, exercises, the application of heat or ice, and adjustments to your lifestyle that can support your recovery from whiplash.

Chiropractic works best as a phased approach, beginning by addressing pain, progressing to corrective care, and finally becoming about maintaining wellness through a series of appointments. Learn more about what to expect from chiropractic care.

Dr Enos is Fantastic! Started seeing him due to a Car Accident and never left! He has kept me going, as well as Fixing my Almost Carpal Tunnel. I used to get pains in my wrists that would shoot up my arm, and after his wrist work. I have not felt that pain in over a Year! Working at a Computer for 17 years, and typing has taken its toll. But after seeing him, I no longer get those pains! Highly Recommend for more than just neck and back adjustments!

I cannot praise Dr. Enos and his staff enough. Dealing with scoliosis, chronic neck pain and chronic migraines I was desperate for even an ounce of relief. My neck pain and back pain is to a point where I can enjoy life again with minimal pain. My migraines have gone from extreme where I couldn't function to being able to function again while still some pain; however, the overall feel of them has drastically changed to a point I never imagined and the overall amount I get per month has been cut in at least half most months. As someone who was nervous about price as they do not take my insurance and as most have mentioned it can be expensive, I will say it's been worth every penny. Every goal he set for me at the initial consult we have met and then some.

I had chronic back pain for over 20 years. In less than 18 months I was feeling better at 33 than I felt at 12. Dr. Enos takes a precise, scientific approach that I have only ever found once before and is extremely effective. I strongly suggest to everyone i know get a check-up, even if they don't have symptoms. Keeping your spine healthy should be a more common preventative health routine in my opinion.

Dr. Enos and team have gone above and beyond to help me with a chronic sciatica issue I have been dealing with for years. Moreover, I've experienced an improvement in overall back health and recovery times thanks to the care received and guidance for at-home exercises. The office itself is extremely clean, well-organized, and relaxing. The staff are very friendly and flexible with working out a time that best fits the patient's schedule. Dr. Enos always answers my questions, ensures patient education is thorough, and has several times gone out of his way to perform extra research / recommendations based on other related health issues. If you're seeking a chiropractor, look no further than Enos Chiropractic Center - you'll be glad you did.

Worth the time & money! I’ve never had a chiropractor examine me like they did and show me x rays to back up the diagnosis. Thank goodness I went to him when I did, I am working on my overall health and always feel welcome and heard. They do everything they say they’re going to do and it is a great community feeling. Thanks Dr Enos!
