At Injury Medical & Chiropractic Clinic, chiropractor Dr. Alex Jimenez offers innovative options and improved assistance for people who have experienced an injury as a result of an auto accident. Dr. Jimenez can provide complete care for automobile accident victims by offering help with legal referral services as well as extended chiropractic options for treating common auto accident injuries, such as soft tissue injuries and whiplash.
After being involved in an automobile accident, symptoms of back pain, neck pain, and headaches most commonly result soon after. Whiplash is a soft tissue injury frequently diagnosed after a car crash and results when a person’s body has absorbed the great force of two automobiles impacting into each other. The term whiplash is used to describe a wide variety of injuries of the neck caused by an abrupt and rapid, back and forth snapping motion of the head, such as when an individual is rear-ended in a car. The symptoms for whiplash can range from mild neck pain, stiffness, and discomfort to severe injury on the spinal cord, fractures, or dislocations.
Specializing in soft tissue and spine related injuries, Dr. Jimenez can help treat and alleviate the symptoms that develop after an individual has experienced an automobile accident. Using manual manipulation and recommending exercises among other chiropractic treatment options, auto accident related injuries, such as whiplash, can be effectively treated by the chiropractor.
