Truspine Chiropractic has been providing treatment for whiplash injuries in San Francisco for many years. We specialize in helping patients recover from auto accidents, bicycle accidents, slips and falls, and sports-related injuries. We are whiplash experts.

The term Whiplash is used to describe the sudden jerking backwards and forward of the skull that occurs from a rear-end auto accident or motor vehicle accident (MVA).

The symptoms that occur from whiplash trauma vary from patient to patient. Some of the more common whiplash injury symptoms include neck pain, back pain, headaches, shoulder pain, arm pain, weakness of grip, night pain, insomnia, loss of memory, vertigo, and TMJ pain.

Soft tissue injuries sustained from whiplash trauma are a primary cause of chronic headaches, as well as back, neck and shoulder pain. In fact, according to statistics, 40% of all people with chronic neck pain trace the problem back to a previous whiplash injury.

When it comes to whiplash injuries, time is of the essence. Permanent damage can occur and scar tissue can develop very quickly without proper treatment in as little as 48 hours.

Sometimes right after a car accident, a whiplash victim feels no symptoms at all. What happens is the adrenaline is flowing and we are worried more about our car, or the other occupants, or missing work. But then the next day the whiplash symptoms kick in…and they kick in hard. This is actually very common.

The best thing to do if you are rear ended or involved in any kind of a motor vehicle collision/auto accident, is to get yourself to a chiropractor’s office as soon as possible.

At Truspine Chiropractic we are experts in treating whiplash injuries. We will help you every step of the way. We have an extensive network of massage therapists as well as medical doctors that spend all day helping patients with soft tissue injuries. We also use advanced treatment methods and technology such as ultrasound therapy that can accelerate soft tissue healing and help reduce pain.

We can fill-out any reports your auto medical (med pay) insurance may need to process your claim, and we can help you find a personal injury attorney if you need one.

Our success rates are very high. If you are looking for whiplash relief and would like to find out if you are a candidate for whiplash treatment we would like to meet you. To schedule an appointment with our San Francisco expert, please call 415–415–1115 or book an appointment here.
