Our Barrie, ON staff members will work together to provide you whiplash treatment that will get you on your feet and back to your daily activities as quickly as possible.
‘Whiplash’ is an injury that occurs to the soft tissues of the neck and is a result of a sudden jerking or ‘whipping’ of the head. The muscles and ligaments in the neck are strained beyond their normal range of motion, resulting in intense pain. Whiplash is most common after car accidents, on roller coasters, in contact sports injuries, or in fights where someone’s head has been jerked back and forth quickly and with force.
When whiplash occurs, you may not immediately know it, though symptoms will typically begin to present themselves within hours. Blurred vision, irritability, nausea, ringing in the ears, fatigue, difficulty swallowing, dizziness, vertigo, and pain in the arms, legs or between the shoulder blades are some of the symptoms you may be experiencing if you are suffering from whiplash.
The pain may vary from nagging to debilitating, and while some may suffer for days waiting for the pain to go away on its own, there is whiplash treatment available.

Whether you need to visit a chiropractor or massage therapist, our staff members will work together to provide you whiplash treatment that will get you on your feet and back to your daily activities as quickly as possible.
