Whiplash injury typically stems from an incident where a person’s head is quickly thrown backward then forward. Every accident is different, and every person’s body responds differently to the stress caused by a car accident, a fall, or an aggressive collision on the playing field. Symptoms of whiplash usually develop within a few days of the injury.
Whiplash is an injury we commonly work with at Renew Movement™. We see clients with patterns of muscular tightness that lead to back and neck pain. Many of these clients have a common history of whiplash; both recent injury and injury from many years ago that is still creating muscle tightness.
Soon after a whiplash injury the whole body can be in shock from the collision, and the body’s nervous system goes into fight or flight mode. Renew Movement™ helps to calm your muscles and your nervous system, allowing them to communicate properly with the rest of your body again. Renew Movement™ gives attention to the muscles that are trying to protect your neck or back from the damage of an accident. It’s important to help your body release tight muscles and calm down your nervous system.
If your whiplash symptoms have been a long term, chronic issue, it’s possible your Renew Movement™ Coach will suggest you sign up for a full Renew Evaluation to look for asymmetrical patterns in your movement that may be leading to chronic muscular tightness. We understand whiplash injury and the pain associated with it. Book a session with a Renew Movement™ Coach to help get you on track to relief.
