Whiplash Treatment Utah

Whiplash is an injury to the neck due to a sudden distortion or extension of the neck, when the neck experiences a sudden cervical (neck) acceleration-deceleration motion. Whiplash is usually the result of a rear impact while in a stationary position and is most often associated with being hit from behind in a motor vehicle. However, a Utah whiplash injury can also occur from injuries related to horseback riding, bicycles, falling from a higher level such as a stool or shaken baby syndrome.

With regular adjustments and with the help of therapists and massage therapists, the team as a whole can not only dramatically reduce the pain involved in an accident or injury, but also reduce the recovery time that it would otherwise take to return to the enjoyment of normal daily routines and activities.

Baker Chiropractic has been extremely helpful and understanding after my car accident. I especially love the massages! They actually have helped more then anything else. Matt, Mikayla, and Sam, all are amazing and I always feel a little bit better after I leave.

I have had great success with being able to quickly get appointments for both massage and adjustments. Sharron is a wonderful massage therapist, and followed by an adjustment I leave feeling so much better than when I walked in. I have been adjusted by several different chiropractors and all have done a great job. I lo...

I would consider myself a very picky customer, as well as having complicated spinal injuries and diagnoses over the years. I was treated with respect and felt that the entire team was knowledgable but didnt talk down to me if that makes sense. I also appreciated that the staff had a welcoming, friendly enviornment but ...

This place is great! I've been having knee pain for ten months and have not found significant relief from any other treatments. The chiropractor was more considerate and respectful than most of the other doctors I've seen. It's comforting to have someone be understanding of the problem. He taped my knee, which has help...

He is the kindest and most caring chiropractor I have ever met. Just today he just waited to take his lunch so he could fit me in, and he always is willing to take me in on a last-minute basis because I have a really intense work schedule. He also always explains things in a way that can be understood by someone that d...

What should Whiplash Treatment include?



  • Manipulation– Spinal adjustments and manipulation increases blood circulation to the injured muscles as well as aligns the neck and spine appropriately to reduce inflammation in the vertebrae, discs, joints, tendons and muscles to allow for proper healing. Frequent manipulations in a short time after an injury help keeps relieve stiffness of muscles that tighten around the injury and promotes flexibility to aid in increased range of motion.
  • Mobilizations– Early use of range of motion exercises have a more rapid recovery than extended use of immobilization or use of a cervical collar.
  • Immobilizations– Neck traction or a neck brace if prescribed. However, new research shows that immobilization causes muscle atrophy (muscle wasting) as well as decreased blood flow and healing of injured muscles.
  • Supplemental heat– application may relieve muscle tension
  • Range of motion exercises– Patients who use range of motion exercises as soon as symptoms allow, usually within 1-4 days, improve and recover at a more rapid rate.
  • Physical therapy– can be helpful to help strengthen muscles and reduce injured and painful motions and to help a patient discontinue use from a neck collar.
