South San Francisco Chiropractic Office Helps Whiplash

A frequent injury arising from an automobile accident in South San Francisco is whiplash. After an accident, a chiropractor can help treat resulting issues and pain from the whiplash. Discover how Ressler Chiropractic can help you!

What Is Whiplash?

Whiplash is medically defined as a neck injury from an auto accident. Most frequently, whiplash is the result of being “rear ended” in a car accident. The impact will cause your head to move forward and backwards violently causing a whiplash injury.  

How Is It Diagnosed?

During an evaluation from a South San Francisco chiropractor for a whiplash injury, your spine will be checked to pinpoint the exact location(s) of the injury. Areas that may be injured will typically show a lack of a range of motion, have muscle spasms, show weakness and be painful. During the acute phase, turning your head will bring discomfort and you may have headaches. Checking for tender areas and tightness, the chiropractor will examine your neck and back.

Chiropractic Treatment for Whiplash in South San Francisco

During the acute stage, possible treatments may include careful stretching and ultrasounds to diminish inflammation. Application of ice may be necessary for any swelling. Proceeding reduction in swelling and pain, treatment will then focus on manipulation of the spine and other areas.

A car accident is never a good situation, and we don’t know when we might be “rear ended” next. You should look for help immediately following a whiplash injury.
