Shadowood Chiropractic Center Seeks to Raise Awareness Regarding Whiplash

BOCA RATON, Fla., Sept. 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Boca Raton, Florida, chiropractor Dr. Allan DellaBella aims to raise awareness about the lasting impacts of whiplash after auto accidents. He is particularly concerned about sharing how it impacts the people after even the smallest accident. In addition, whiplash is often difficult for general medicine practitioners to treat. It requires a combination of treatments designed to relieve pain, reduce inflammation and realign the spine. "In some rare cases, surgery may be warranted," says Dr. DellaBella, "but we consider that a last resort with so many effective treatment combinations available to exhaust first — and chiropractic care is one of the best options."

Shadowood Chiropractic Center chiropractor, Dr. Allan DellaBella is interested in raising awareness about whiplash and what it means for people recovering from car accidents in the Boca Raton, Florida, community. Whiplash can be chronic. Unfortunately, it is not a condition that goes away after a few quick trips to the chiropractor. It may cause pain and require consistent treatment over the course of a lifetime.

What most people don't realize about whiplash is that they do not need to be in a major accident in order to sustain this particular injury. In fact, low-impact and slow crashes are among the most common accidents in which whiplash injuries occur, according to Boca Raton chiropractor, Dr. DellaBella.

"Another misconception about whiplash," says Dr. DellaBella, "is that it should be immediately obvious. In some cases, whiplash can be asymptomatic for a after the accident. That's why it's so important to consult with a chiropractor as quickly as possible after being in an accident – no matter how minor."

In addition to causing varying degrees and intensities of pain, whiplash injuries can limit range of motion. There are symptoms other than neck pain associated with whiplash injuries too, including lower back pain, headaches, insomnia, chronic fatigue, irritability and numbness in the arm.

Chiropractic treatment offers some of the best "medicine" for whiplash injuries. Not because of medications, but because it seeks to restore alignment so the body can work more efficiently – reducing stress on the soft tissue areas where the pain is most intense.

Dr. DellaBella uses the Thompson Drop Table Technique. This technique involves positioning the patient face down on a special table designed to drop various pieces so that gravity, thrust, and force help restore alignment and balance for faster pain relief.

More than an auto accident chiropractor, Dr. DellaBella also offers personalized recommendations for all his patients to help them maintain proper alignment once the visit ends.

People living with pain in the aftermath of an auto accident are encouraged to call Shadowood Chiropractic Center at 561-488-4000 to schedule an appointment and get relief today.
