Dr. Jason Jumper of Renew Chiropractic Takes a Natural Systemic Approach to Healing Whiplash Injuries in Lakewood, CO

Whiplash is a nonmedical term used to describe neck pain following an injury to the soft tissues of the neck (specifically ligaments, tendons, and muscles). Usually associated with car accidents, it is caused by an abnormal motion or force applied to the neck that causes movement beyond the neck’s normal range of motion. At Renew Chiropractic, drugs and medicine are not utilized as a form of treating a patient. Dr. Jason Jumper can provide patients with a chiropractic consultation to discuss health related problems and concerns, as well as potential treatment options to restore the overall performance that the human body is lacking.

There are several factors that affect the efficiency of the stabilization response to whiplash injury, including: posture at impact, overall physically condition and awareness of the coming impact. It should be known that some of these stabilization responses to whiplash are within the patient's capacity to control, while others are not. In addition to neck pain, other symptoms may include neck stiffness, injuries to the muscles and ligaments (myofascial injuries), headache, dizziness, abnormal sensations such as burning or prickling (paresthesia), or shoulder or back pain. In addition, some people experience cognitive, somatic, or psychological conditions such as memory loss, concentration impairment, nervousness/irritability, sleep disturbances, fatigue, or depression.

At Renew Chiropractic, Dr. Jason Jumper’s primary whiplash treatment for related muscle dysfunction, muscle relaxation and/or stimulation consists of gentle stretches to the muscle that has excessive tension or repeated contractions of the muscle that is inhibited. If the muscle is very tight, Dr. Jason Jumper may apply a more vigorous stretch. Gentle finger pressure techniques may also be applied to trigger points to relieve the pain associated with the tight muscles.
