Accessing physiotherapy to manage your whiplash can really help. At Posturepro Physiotherapy Adelaide, our team will perform a thorough assessment and examination to determine your history and work out the best treatment for you. Principal Physiotherapist Julie Williams will conduct an orthopaedic, neurological and spinal examination to determine the exact location of your neck pain. Diagnostic imaging such as Xray, CT,MRI and Posturepro scans may also be required to fully assess any damage.
Once assessed and diagnose, Julie will create a treatment to help reduce pain and inflammation and stabilise your neck to prevent further damage.
Once your pain has started to decrease and your stability is improving, your Posturepro physiotherapist will use massage to mobilise your spine to help improve your neck function and reduce nerve pressure.
We will also advise other methods to assist in the treatment of neck pain and whiplash, like avoiding poor neck posture during your daily routine and using a firm supporting contoured pillow when sleeping. We can also recommend a good mattress to use, as we are connected with Adelaide suppliers who are as dedicated as we are to helping you get a good, pain free night’s sleep.
If you have whiplash, physiotherapy is your best bet as it can be treated effectively with physio treatment.
