Chiropractor In Gresham, Dr. Jeffrey Bratten D. C., Provides Pain Relief For Whiplash Sufferers

Gresham OR, 8-APRIL-2014 - Great Health Chiropractic and Dr. Jeffrey Bratten, D. C., are pleased to announce that whiplash pain relief is available for victims of this type of injury. A primary cause of whiplash injuries is an automobile accident, but they can also be the result of a slip-and-fall accident. The pain relief techniques offered by the Gresham chiropractor do not require painkiller drugs or invasive procedures.

Speaking in a recent interview, Dr. Jeffrey Bratten, D. C., explained, "The tremendous forces applied to the head and neck during a sudden movement such as that which occurs during an accident are the cause of the injury known as a whiplash. The movement is similar to that which occurs when a whip is cracked. A major problem with this type of injury is that it is often overlooked following the accident. There may not be a sensation of pain for several hours."

He continues, "Because chiropractors recognize the importance of connections between the spinal column in the cervical area and the muscles and connective tissue affected by the injury. We urge accident victims to schedule a consultation with us as soon after the accident as possible. We will do a comprehensive examination that pinpoints the area of the injury. We offer therapeutic efforts which relieve existing pain quickly and may prevent pain from developing in the future at the injury site."

Chiropractic philosophy understands that the first step is pain relief. This can be accomplished by heat and cold therapy, gentle massage and spinal adjustments if needed. The body is encouraged to begin the self-healing process by such efforts as increasing circulation, reducing fever and irritation in damaged tissue and providing cellular level nutrients to damaged tissue.
