Dr. Malka Carlucci has been a chiropractor in Cottonwood Heights for several years, and in that time she's worked with hundreds of people suffering from a condition known as whiplash. This condition can affect people of all ages and health histories and is estimated to affect about 1 million people every year.
Would you be surprised to learn that whiplash doesn't only happen during car accidents? In fact, whiplash, also known as an acceleration-deceleration injury, can happen in any sort of physically jarring scenario in which the neck forcefully snaps forward and backward. This means whiplash can happen on the road, at work, during a sporting event, or even while doing chores around the house!
Whiplash causes damage to the tissues of the upper back and shoulder region, including nerves, muscles, blood vessels, tendons, ligaments, and articular (joint) structures. While exact symptoms will vary, some of the most common ones include:
On a physiological level, whiplash looks like tissue inflammation, localized swelling, impaired circulation, pain-mediating hormonal and metabolic changes, and, on a more subacute or chronic scale, scar tissue formation and muscle weakening.

Dr. Carlucci has worked wonders with my pain. To say that it has stopped is an understatement. She spent time focusing and working as hard as she could to alleviate my pain and now I am living pain free, and have more energy and just feel better overall. She also worked with me financially so I never felt any pain in my wallet either!!
