Knocking or “whipping” the spine out of alignment can strain the neck muscles and cause intense pain and discomfort. Painkillers are a stopgap measure in controlling pain, it it’s important to get to the cause of the condition.

Most people may or may not notice that they are suffering from back or neck pain after even the most minor of car accidents. It is entirely possible you have sustained whiplash. Some may not even experience any pain at all!

The human body is designed to naturally adapt even if there are damages to its body and brain. Our body has a natural ability to regnerate and this ability is dependent on a healthy nervous system. Our Edina chiropractor offers gentle, safe, and painless corrections that can help your body heal mentally and physically to prevent disease.

Research has shown that chiropractors can effectivly treat the underlying spinal (or whiplash) injury by relieving pressure on your tendons, nerves, and muscles. This alignment of the spine coupled with corrective exercises helps heal even serious damage to your musculoskeletal system.

Following your trauma, your body will naturally try to immobilize the injured area. A protective spasm can help to immobilize damaged joints and muscles. This is a normal healthy reaction, however, if function is not restored within 4-8 weeks, scar tissue can form and can make full recovery extremely difficult.

Chiropractors know that a multi-faceted treatment program is best for you and can help you get better sooner.


Chiropractic Adjustments return joints to an aligned and proper position and can also reduce pressure on “pinched” nerves.


Ice and anti-inflammatory medications can offer short-term relief, but often do not address the source of your pain. Ice and medication can help in pain relief, but should not be seen as a healing our damaged muscles, nerves, tendons, and ligaments.

Stay the course with your Edina chiropractor at Zen Chiropractic today. Build a tailored treatment plan together as soon as you can after your fender bender or major crash. It’s likely you’ll heal faster and with far less discomfort.
