Exams and Test for Whiplash in Lexington, Kentucky 

Have you recently been in a car accident in Lexington, Kentucky? If so, you may be suffering from whiplash, even if you don’t see any symptoms at the moment. Dr. Robert Kirby, DC of the ChiroWorks Pain and Injury Treatment Center is a medical professional experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of whiplash. Discover the benefits of getting a whiplash medical assessment and treatment for this condition. 

Man with whiplash needs to contact his chiropractor in Lexington, KY.

Understanding Whiplash 

Whiplash is a medical condition that involves the muscles and vertebrae of the upper back, neck, and lower head. When the head is jerked suddenly the body does not have the chance to brace for impact. This is commonly experienced by car accident victims. This sudden movement causes the vertebrae in the upper spine and neck to be dislocated, while also tearing the muscles connecting the head to the rest of the body. When this happens it slowly creates inflammation and swelling, which prevents you from turning your neck. The lack of mobility is also painful and reduces your ability to function normally. 

Getting a Whiplash Medical Assessment

The sooner you can get a whiplash medical assessment, the better as this condition can be treated more effectively early on. Additionally, with most car accident victims, whiplash is slow to show symptoms. Therefore, you may not experience whiplash for a few days or even weeks after your accident. By coming to see Dr. Kirby for a whiplash examination as soon as you have a car accident, you can begin treatment sooner, which will reduce the amount of pain you experience.

What to Expect During a Whiplash Examination 

When you visit Dr. Kirby for a whiplash examination he will begin with a comprehensive questionnaire detailing your accident and associated pain. Be prepared by writing down everything you can think of about your accident prior to your visit. Questions he will ask include when the pain started in your neck, and what you have done to treat the pain. You will also go through a physical and neurological exam. 

These include special tests for whiplash that involve checking your muscles for spasms and your spine for misalignment. Dr. Kirby will also check for possible nerve injury resulting from the whiplash. If necessary Dr. Kirby will use digital x-rays, MRI, or a CT scan to get a more thorough understanding of your pain and whiplash. This can help the doctor explore any soft tissue damage that is related to your condition.
