Whiplash Treatment in Tampa

neck pain in drivers seatOften associated with car accidents or high-impact sports injuries, whiplash is a painful condition resulting from the abrupt back-and-forth motion of the neck. This motion strains the muscles and ligaments, causing discomfort and restricting movement. Symptoms include neck pain, stiffness, headaches, dizziness, and sometimes even referred pain to the shoulders or arms.

While conventional treatments may include pain medications or physical therapy, chiropractic care offers a holistic, non-invasive and safe approach to managing whiplash.

How Does Chiropractic Care Help?

Chiropractic care offers numerous benefits for individuals recovering from whiplash. It’s a drug-free, non-invasive approach that focuses on the root cause of the pain rather than merely masking symptoms. Dr. Berven’s personalized care plans encourage natural healing and help patients regain mobility and reduce discomfort.

Our chiropractor has many years of experience successfully addressing whiplash injuries. Her approach involves a range of techniques tailored to each patient’s unique needs:

Diversified Technique

This hands-on approach involves manual adjustments to realign the spine and restore proper function. Dr. Berven’s precise adjustments target misalignments caused by whiplash, reducing nerve interference and promoting natural healing.


For those who prefer a gentler approach, Dr. Berven uses the Activator—a technique that employs a handheld instrument to deliver controlled and precise adjustments. This technique is particularly effective for patients with acute pain or sensitivity.

Drop-Table Technique

Using a specialized table allows for controlled adjustments, providing a comfortable experience while effectively addressing spinal misalignments. This technique is beneficial for patients requiring specific and targeted adjustments.

Flexion-Distraction Technique

Dr. Berven employs this technique to relieve pressure on the spine, aiding in decompression and alignment. It’s beneficial for patients experiencing disc-related issues due to whiplash.

Taking a Patient-Centered Approach

What sets Dr. Berven apart from other area chiropractors is her dedication to patient education and involvement in the healing process. She listens attentively to her patients’ concerns, explains treatment options in detail, and encourages active participation in their recovery journey.
