Whiplash Treatment and Relief in Durham, NC

Whiplash is one of the most common injuries caused by auto accidents. At Peterson Chiropractic in Durham, NC, we want to help our patients find relief from pain, and want to get them the treatment they deserve. That's why we offer whiplash treatment that can help you feel better and recover from your auto accident injury. With chiropractic care, you can get back to feeling your best.


What Is Whiplash?

Whiplash is a neck injury that occurs when the head and neck are suddenly forced into an unnatural position, often due to an auto accident. This kind of trauma can cause mild to severe pain in the muscles and joints. Symptoms of whiplash may include neck stiffness, headaches, shoulder pain, dizziness, and more.

Symptoms might not show up for days or weeks after an accident. If you were in a car crash, be sure to visit our office right away so we can evaluate your condition.

Whiplash Treatment at Peterson Chiropractic

At Peterson Chiropractic, we understand the pain and discomfort associated with whiplash injuries. We use a variety of chiropractic care techniques to help you recover, including:

  • Chiropractic adjustments: Adjustment releases pressure on the spine, allowing muscles and ligaments to heal properly.
  • Soft tissue therapy: Massage and other soft tissue treatments can help reduce inflammation and swelling in your neck, as well as relieve pain.
  • Exercise: Stretches and exercises specifically designed for whiplash can help strengthen the muscles in your neck and improve range of motion.

At Peterson Chiropractic, we provide personalized treatment plans to meet the needs of our patients. .

After our initial evaluation, we may suggest several treatment options that could help reduce your symptoms and help you heal. Our chiropractic treatments are designed to improve range of motion, decrease pain, and restore function to the affected area.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I was diagnosed by an orthopedic surgeon with a buldging disc. I was in constant pain. There were times it was painful to turn over in bed. I could not bend to tie my shoes. The most painful thing was that my active lifestyle was completely changing. I could not play golf or exercise without pain. I was treated by a physical therapist, and then a chiropractor for about nine months. This treatment temporarily relieved a lot of my pain. Dr. Peterson told me the DRX-9000 had helped others with my condition. After the first two weeks of painless treatment I could tell a difference. I now play golf without pain. I just played in a three day tournament. I can even tie my own shoes. I do recommend this treatment."
