At Seaside Spine, we use a combination of chiropractic techniques such as spinal manipulation, muscle stimulation, and soft tissue therapies to alleviate the pain caused by whiplash. Our treatments aim to correct misalignments, relax tense muscles, and restore your range of motion, thereby alleviating pain.
We offer a range of treatments including spinal manipulation, specific spinal manipulation, muscle stimulation, soft tissue therapies, and instrument-assisted therapy like the Graston technique. These treatments are tailored based on your individual needs and the severity of your whiplash injury.
The duration of treatment can vary based on the severity of the injury, your body’s healing ability, and the individual response to treatment. Some patients may feel relief after a few sessions, while others might require a longer treatment plan.
The cost of treatment can vary depending on the specific services needed, the number of sessions required, and whether additional therapies are involved. We recommend contacting our office directly for the most accurate pricing information.
Yes, Seaside Spine accepts most health insurance plans. We recommend checking with your insurance provider about coverage for chiropractic care and any potential out-of-pocket costs.
Whiplash is a common but often misunderstood injury that can occur during an auto accident. It is caused by a forceful, rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck, similar to the cracking of a whip, hence the term ‘whiplash’. This sudden movement can cause the soft tissues in your neck to extend beyond their typical range, leading to pain, stiffness, and a host of other symptoms.
While it might seem like a minor injury at first, leaving whiplash untreated can lead to long-term problems. Some people may experience chronic neck pain and ongoing complications that interfere with their quality of life. Symptoms can include neck pain, stiffness, headaches, fatigue, dizziness, and even cognitive problems like memory loss or concentration issues. It’s crucial to understand that these symptoms might not appear immediately after the accident. They can develop over time, highlighting the importance of getting checked out even if you feel okay immediately after a collision.
If you’ve been in an auto accident, it’s crucial to seek immediate medical attention, even if you feel fine. Whiplash injuries can take a few days to manifest symptoms, and early intervention can significantly improve your recovery outcomes. Treatment often involves pain management, exercise, and in some cases, physical therapy or chiropractic care. The sooner you begin treatment, the better your chances of a swift and complete recovery.
