Chiropractic Whiplash Treatment in Bramhall
SPEAK TO A CHIROPRACTOR
Treatments for whiplash
At our whiplash injury clinic in Bramhall, we offer an easy to access service to treat the cervical damage caused by whiplash-style trauma.
Most often associated with traffic accidents and sudden violent motion that literally ‘whips’ the head and neck backwards and forwards, whiplash can cause injury to the neck’s joints, muscles, ligaments and nerves. As a result of this injury, patients often suffer from long-term pain, stiffness and discomfort.
Chiropractor Bramhall’s whiplash treatment works to undo the pain and damage caused by a whiplash-style neck injury. We also support long-term healing.
Whiplash usually occurs following a collision or trauma. This is when your head ‘whips’ forwards and backwards creating immense pressure through the tissues surrounding the neck. The tissues at risk are:
Muscles and ligaments which can be overstretched and torn
Discs (between the vertebrae) which can bulge, tear or rupture
Nerves which can stretch and/or become irritated
What can we do?
Damage from trauma can lead to accelerated ‘wear and tear’. It’s important to seek treatment as soon as possible to avoid worsening the issue. Furthermore, If aches and pains are ignored and spinal function is reduced, early osteoarthritis can also develop. This occurs when cartilage (spongy material) is worn down and the body starts producing bony spurs. If these spurs get too big it can also have an impact on the tunnels in which the nerves run through. This can lead to the development of numbness, weakness, burning and/or pins and needles.
Whiplash treatment at Chiropractor Bramhall starts with a full assessment to understand the nature and extent of the injury, its cause and the subsequent symptoms. Due to this, we can find the source of your pain and work out where the dysfunction lies. If appropriate, we will use a technique called a ‘Chiropractic adjustment’. The Chiropractic adjustment is a precise procedure, which is applied to the stiff joints to improve the mobility and range of motion. Recent research has shown patients with chronic neck pain and whiplash-type damage made significant improvements following Chiropractic care.

What Our Customers Say
I cannot thank Jordan enough for helping to relieve the pain that I had previously thought I had to live with long-term. Having been to countless other places before, I didn’t give much detail away regarding my pain in my first session but Jordan was able to identify the troubled area right away. Alongside the treatment Jordan also gives me exercises that I can do between sessions to help myself (& also catches me out if I don’t do them which is a great motivator!). Above all I would like to thank him for always finding a space for emergency appointments when I have been really struggling and his diary is already full. Can’t recommend enough – thank you again Jordan!Bethany Cooper
3 adjustments – pain free, 6 adjustments – still pain free and moving better. I honestly couldn’t believe how fast it worked. This is after 5 years of nagging pains which I only ever controlled with regular pain killers.Fiona Randolph
Getting out of bed on a normal Wednesday morning I felt a severe stab through my foot as it planted. Terrified I called Jordan as I remembered he helped my mum with numerous other injuries. Over the phone he reassured me and organised a assessment which led onto a treatment session. Following a course of bearable treatments and a few home exercises the plantar fascitis was gone. He is a wizard!!!!Gary Knowells
