If you’ve been in a car accident, odds are likely that you may have suffered a whiplash injury. In fact, studies show that people can suffer whiplash with car accidents at low speeds, even as low as 5 MPH. Even a minor fender bender should be looked at, and our Littleton chiropractic office can help.
The two main reasons you want to visit a Littleton chiropractor if you think you’ve suffered whiplash is to help reduce the pain, and to see if any extensive damage has been done, which should always be looked at by a medical professional like a chiropractor. Just because it was at a low speed or even if you don’t feel pain, when it comes to your neck and your spine, you shouldn’t risk it.
At Ultimate Health Medical Clinic, our Chiropractors will perform an exam and likely do a set of x-rays, all of which can be done in our office. Our in-office exam will focus on most of your body, not just the exact source of pain. Our Littleton chiropractors are knowledgeable in treating whiplash and know that referred pain means we need to examine your entire spine, neck and extremities. It’s important to understand all of your symptoms of whiplash before we develop a treatment for whiplash.
Luckily when you visit our Littleton chiropractors, we can treat all of your whiplash injuries on-site to help you recover quicker, and to help ensure you don’t suffer any long-term whiplash symptoms. We have an on-site physical therapist to help you work through exercises to help strengthen your neck without causing more damage.

Not only can our team of medical experts help reduce the pain and inflammation from the accident, we can help ensure to keep your spine in good shape to avoid any long-term effects.
Whiplash from a car accident isn’t the only way to experience whiplash symptoms.
Whiplash injuries can also happen with other accidents like:
- falling off a bike
- horseback riding accident
- physical abuse – including shaking a baby
- amusement park rides
- contact sports
Did you know that women are more susceptible to whiplash than men, according to an article published in Medical News Today? Experts say that’s because women’s neck muscles are usually not as strong as men’s.
No matter what, if you’ve been in an auto accident, we think it’s imperative to see a chiropractor immediately, and our Littleton chiropractor’s office looks forward to helping you heal from your injury and get you back to your regularly scheduled activities.
