Whiplash Treatment

San Antonio Whiplash Treatment Chiropractor

Hard impacts sustained in car crashes and falls can result in debilitating pain. Among the more chronic conditions is the neck injury commonly associated with an auto accident known as “whiplash.”

The persistent discomfort experienced from whiplash can disrupt everything in your life from leisure activities to restful sleep. That’s why it’s imperative that you contact an experienced San Antonio chiropractor for the care and treatment your need.

At Pinnacle Wellness, our chiropractic professional staff members are committed to working with valued San Antonio community members to provide pain relief and help you along the road to recovery.

What is Whiplash?

The term whiplash has been closely associated with neck injuries caused by the violent back and forth motion that can occur in a rear-end car accident.

The snapping of the head and neck results in significant soft tissue injury to muscles, ligaments and tendons. Unlike a fracture, these conditions are not easily detected through tests such as x-rays. If the region suffers only a minor strain, the healing process may occur naturally after a few days. However, more serious whiplash injuries often require nonsurgical care that include medication, heat-ice treatments and ongoing chiropractic care to relieve pain, tingling and numbness.

Importance of Whiplash Treatment and Care

One of the challenges to whiplash treatment and care is that the symptoms often take days, weeks and even months to manifest. That’s why it’s important to contact an experienced San Antonio chiropractor immediately if you have been in an auto accident or sustained a hard impact. Failure to get appropriate care can exacerbate the following conditions.

  • Joint Dysfunction: Failure to treat whiplash can lead to spinal joints and limbs losing full range of motion.
  • Herniated Discs: Whiplash can cause small tears in the discs between vertebrae. Without treatment and care these can lead to bulging discs, shooting pain, numbness and tingling sensations.
  • Muscular Dysfunction: Intense pain can cause the nervous system to alter signals that provide muscular coordination.
  • Chronic Pain: Among the more common problems associated with whiplash, untreated conditions can result in persistent chronic pain.

Chiropractic care entails a holistic approach to pain relief and overall wellness. Whiplash is inherently a type of physical dysfunction that can be treated without surgery in many cases. An important first step to making a full recovery from whiplash is to consult with a chiropractor.

  • "If you have back and/or neck trouble and have never been to a chiropractor before, then this is the place for you. I was referred here by my wife who has been seeing the doctors for several years. Since starting my adjustments I sleep better and feel better all around, and no it doesn't hurt. Currently I am recovering from tennis elbow and bursitis which the doctors are helping me recover by using a massager on my arm when I visit, even my physical therapist was glad they were helping out."

Our kiddos get adjusted too and for our infant it helped him to crawl properly when he was having difficulties or crawling abnormally. It is a vital part of our healthiness and we would recommend them to everyone!"
