Whiplash, a neck injury caused by sudden forceful head and neck movements, often occurs after car accidents. The rapid back-and-forth motion can strain muscles, ligaments, and joints in the neck, leading to various unpleasant symptoms. At Kaufman Chiropractic Clinic in Bothell and Monroe, WA, we offer a variety of treatments to reduce your symptoms and prevent further complications.

Chiropractic Care for Whiplash
Chiropractic care focuses on the musculoskeletal system and how it is connected to the nervous system. Our chiropractors are trained to identify and address misalignments in the spine, known as subluxations. These misalignments can contribute to pain and discomfort, including those associated with whiplash. Through gentle adjustments and other techniques, we can help with the following:
- Improve range of motion in the neck

Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Whiplash
Chiropractic care can provide a variety of benefits. For example, the techniques used natural, non-invasive, and don’t produce adverse side effects.
