Because whiplash injuries involve both the hard and soft tissues in the neck and back, chiropractic care is one of the most effective, non-invasive whiplash treatments. Acupuncture and massage therapy are also effective treatments for whiplash injuries and compliment chiropractic treatments.
Your Overland Park chiropractor will meet with you to discuss the cause of your whiplash injury, your injury history, and health history. Because whiplash is a neck injury, your chiropractor may order diagnostic studies such as X-rays and MRIs to gain a complete understanding of your injury. These radiological images can help your chiropractor accurately diagnose your whiplash injury and the severity of your injury, which will help them determine an individualized injury treatment plan for you. Fortunately, we offer in-house radiology, which you can learn more about by following this link.
At Adjust Your Health, we apply gentle chiropractic treatments that do not involve twisting. Applying gentle and controlled chiropractic care can restore proper nerve function to reduce your neck and back pain, alleviate tension and stress, and ease inflammation. Gentle chiropractic care is a safe and effective alternative treatment to surgery and the use of prescription drugs. What’s more, chiropractic treatments improve nerve function which assists you body’s natural ability to heal itself, which can speed up your injury recovery time.
Chiropractic care compliments other alternative and medical treatments like acupuncture, massage therapy, and physical therapy. Your chiropractor will also take into account your health and lifestyle to offer nutritional advice, exercise, and stretching for self-care that can enhance your chiropractic treatments and boost your overall health and wellness to aid in your whiplash recovery.
Here at Adjust Your Health, we take a collaborative approach to healing. Our chiropractor and massage therapist work hand-in-hand to determine the best treatment plan that matches your specific needs and injuries. Coordinating your gentle chiropractic treatments in conjunction with your medical massage treatments can help you manage your neck pain while also addressing the cause of your pain so that you can heal more efficiently.

Acupuncture involves the application of thin needles which are placed on meridian points on the body that correlate with specific regions and organs in the body.
At Adjust Your Health Chiropractic, we provide needle-free electro-acupuncture that involves the use of focused pulsating electrical currents that are applied to specific points on the body. Acupuncture can alleviate the symptoms associated with whiplash injuries while reducing pain.
