Injured in an Auto Accident?

whiplash injury

Do you have whiplash in San Diego? Many people in San Diego experience whiplash injuries each year. Most car accidents in San Diego are rear end collisions each of which vary in severity. Many of our patients that are involved in rear-end collisions don't even realize they have received injuries until weeks or months post-impact. Their medical doctors do not always acknowledge injuries that occur at lower speeds, but research today says differently. If you have been injured in an accident this article from Biophysics Chiropractic will help you understand the options that you have.

To have success with a whiplash injury it's important to work with a provider that understands the problem. Chiropractors are trained for these types of injuries, so if you have recently been injured it's important to get your spine checked as soon as possible. The sooner that you start care the less chance you have of developing long term problems.


Whiplash in San Diego

Whiplash injuries are a serious matter. The results can be devastating if an injury of this caliber is left untreated. What's unfortunate, is that most people don't even realize they are injured until long after the accident. By the time many people realize they are in need of help, their problems have escalated to a much greater condition.

Injuries tend to be more significant when your headrest is positioned too low. In the instance where your headrest is positioned too low it can act as an acceleration point when you are hit from behind. A 5 mph impact can result in your head whipping back at a much higher rate of speed causing greater injury.

Statistically significant improvement was noted for 93% of the 28 patients studied in the Woodward study while under chiropractic care. In the research study chiropractic care consisted of spinal manipulation, PNF, and cryotherapy. Many of the patients were treated prior to the study with NSAIDS, soft colors and physiotherapy.

Chiropractic care is an effective modality for patients that have been injured in motor vehicle accidents. The study mentioned earlier was able to clearly document the success and experience most chiropractors see in clinical practice. Symptoms ranging from headaches to neck pain, back pain, inter-scapular pain and related extremity pain with numbness and tingling often respond very well to chiropractic care.
