Truspine Chiropractic & Acupuncture 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. It usually 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, and arm pain. Some less common include 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, neck and back pain. Not to mention, extremity injuries to the shoulders and hips. In fact, statistics illustrate 40% of all people with chronic neck pain trace the problem 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…A victim may feel no symptoms at all”
Sometimes right after a car accident, a victim feels no symptoms at all. The adrenaline kicks in. The victim is more concerned about their car or getting to work on time. If there is a passenger, they may worry about their well-being instead of their own. 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 an office of a chiropractor as soon as possible.
At Truspine we are experts in treating whiplash injuries and therefore, will help you every step of the way. Our extensive network of occupational therapists, medical doctors, and bodyworkers spend all day helping patients with soft tissue injuries. We also use advanced treatment methods and technology such as ultrasound therapy. This therapy can accelerate soft tissue healing and help reduce pain.
