A further article titled, “Keep on running”, discusses how trigger point needling is becoming increasingly popular in the sporting world due to the rapid effect it has on pain arising from tense muscles and myofascial tissue.

What about Whiplash Injuries?

Richard Iveson, The Iveson Clinic’s Chiropractor, has recently attended a conference on the most up-to-date thoughts and research on whiplash injuries. Current thinking is that the efficacy of treating whiplash with traditional, hands-on treatments, using mobilisations and muscle relaxing techniques, could be enhanced by also looking at psychological factors. It appears that whiplash can alter the way the brain processes information from the eyes and neck muscles, and there is evidence that treatment and exercises for these systems can help patients recover faster. Research indicates that 50% of people with whiplash will see their symptoms resolve within the first three months 25% will resolve gradually after this and 25% will experience long term pain Whiplash is a relatively common injury, usually occurring from motor vehicle accidents. The sudden acceleration-deceleration force causes unrestrained, rapid forward and backward movement of the head and neck thus causing injury. If you have a pending court case for an injury visit this injury law firm Orlando. However the precise nature of the injuries that come under the name ‘whiplash’ are still not well understood. Clearly the spinal joints in the neck are injured but other mechanisms are probably involved as well. It will be interesting to see what further discoveries are made about whiplash in the future. If you are suffering from whiplash, the practitioners at the Iveson Clinic should be able to help relieve your symptoms, so get in touch with us on 01787...
