One of the most common sorts of car accidents is the rear end collision. In this type of accident, whiplash is a frequent injury because the head is violently whipped forward and backward while the rest of the body is secured by a seatbelt. The muscles and soft tissue in the neck are damaged, resulting in symptoms like stiffness, neck pain, headaches, and decreased range of motion. Additionally, many people experience pain in their upper or lower backs due to herniated discs.

He has 26 years’ experience working on correcting the curve of the spine from whiplash and disc injuries, and treating related neck and back pain. His methods include techniques such as the Cox technique, ultrasound, electrical stimulation treatments, massage therapy, and trigger point massage.
