What is whiplash?
Dr. Silverman of Delray Beach has a background in whiplash treatment and other commonly occurring neck injuries. Whiplash is a common neck injury that is associated with car accidents, but can occur from a number of other causes that twists, jars or strains the neck such as contact sports and physical trauma. When a collision or force strikes you from behind, the neck snaps back and forth violently, causing the muscles and ligaments to overextend. This results in neck pain and soft tissue damage which leaves strains and/or tears in the neck as well as other structural damage near the spine such as misaligned vertebrae, herniated, bulging or ruptured discs, spinal injury or nerve damage. For drivers, the severity of the damage increases if the seat’s headrest is positioned too low.
How can I recover from whiplash?
Because the majority of whiplash incidents impact the spine and the surrounding nerves and tissues, chiropractic care at our Delray Beach clinic is a great avenue for whiplash treatment and neck pain relief. We handle the actual misalignment instead of only numbing the symptoms through medication.
Dr. Silverman is skilled in assessing the source of the pain associated with a whiplash injury and determining a plan for effective, gentle, and non-invasive whiplash treatment for Delray Beach patients. As neck pain is relieved following whiplash treatment, the rehabilitation process helps repair and restore the musculoskeletal system through small adjustments, mobilization and exercise. Afterwards, Dr. Silverman’s patients in Delray Beach find great neck pain relief from whiplash treatment and are set on a road to full recovery.

Pain in head movements
Reflective shoulder pain
Upper back and arm pain
Lower back pain
Numbness in the extremities, such as arms, hands, and fingers

What Our Patients Say
I was in a terrible car crash as a passenger and I seriously could not move my neck at all. I am now pain free and can move my neck completely. I would recommend Dr. Silverman. He is smart, gentle and very good at what he does.
