At Dr. Phillips' San Antonio Chiropractic in San Antonio, Texas, our chiropractor, Dr. Donald Phillips, has experience treating auto accident injuries such as whiplash with natural pain control methods instead of expensive and addictive painkillers. Learn the symptoms of whiplash and why chiropractic is the best treatment method for this auto accident injury.
Whiplash is a common car accident injury, but it can also occur when you suffer a bad fall or get injured playing sports. Whiplash occurs when the head and neck are whipped back and forth at high velocity, for example in the car accident impact. Whiplash is characterized by a delayed onset rather than immediate onset. Many people begin to experience whiplash pain and symptoms one day after the car accident, although some people do not feel neck pain until weeks later.
Symptoms that indicate whiplash include neck stiffness, neck pain, reduced range of motion, pins and needles, tingling in the shoulders and arms, vertigo, and nausea.
It can take up to six weeks to reverse whiplash and restore your neck's mobility and range of motion using chiropractic, physiotherapy, nutrition advice, and rehabilitative care. By using these natural therapies together, we can promote a healthy recovery in your body, reverse damage from the crash, and control pain without medication.
Whiplash will only get worse until it is treated with chiropractic to restore the neck's natural alignment. If you experience common whiplash symptoms, seek chiropractic care immediately.
All natural pain management techniques reduce stiffness and pain associated with whiplash while restoring the neck to its natural alignment. Our San Antonio chiropractor uses a range of treatments to relieve whiplash pain.
Cold laser therapy addresses soft tissue injuries associated with whiplash. Using a cold laser beam, we send laser light deep into the muscles and ligaments of the neck, promoting healing from within.
Spinal decompression may benefit whiplash if the spine was compressed, or the disc was herniated, in the accident. In spinal decompression treatments, our chiropractor uses a decompression table, to gently stretch the spine to take pressure off the nerves and help relieve pain. Treatments can help resolve the whiplash injury and avoid more invasive procedures, such as surgery.
Chiropractic adjustments bring the vertebrae in the neck back to their proper alignment, so you can comfortably move your neck. Adjustments relieve pain, pressure, and inflammation that are caused by whiplash injuries.
Physiotherapy - Physiotherapy to relieve whiplash pain may include cold or heat treatments as well as gentle stretches that restore mobility.
Nutrition - Nutrition can help your body recover from all types of injuries by reducing inflammation and promoting healing. To help you enjoy a fast recovery, we may make specific nutritional recommendations, which you can follow at home.
All natural pain management - All natural pain management techniques use no prescription medication. We know these drugs are expensive, can be addictive, and often can have harmful side effects. Chiropractic can be a safer alternative for whiplash relief.
