There are many different types of neck pain, please find some information below about some of the common types that we encounter on a day to day in Manchester.
Whiplash Associated Disorder (WAD)
Whiplash is often very severe and debilitating but little evidence on injury shows up on scans and X-rays. This can be very frustrating for patients and family members having to deal with the injury. The injury is caused by an over stretching of the joints, ligaments and muscles in the neck and surrounding structures, often as a result of a vehicle accident but can be caused by falls, sports trauma, horse riding or even a violent fairground ride. This pain often can take hours or days to develop which can be a strange thing to experience, walking away from an accident with no pain, then waking up the following morning in agony. Syptoms of whiplash often include:
- Neck pain and Stiffness
- Decreased range of motion
- Headache and Dizziness
- Pain in and around the shoulder or further down the back.
Whiplash is successfully treated with Chiropractic care and manual therapies. At Salford City Chiropractic we offer gentle treatment consisting of massage and gentle mobilisation to help ease the pain. We can also teach you Rehabilitative exercises to restore the range of motion in the neck. Some cases of whiplash can be very severe and will require hospitalisation. If in doubt please give us a call or seek medical advice from your GP
