Whiplash is a type of neck injury caused by rapid back and forth movement of the neck that can be caused by a variety of movements. Car accidents, specifically being rear-ended, is one of the most common ways people get whiplash, but the injury can also result from physical abuse, sports accidents, or other traumas.
It can take weeks or even months before you realize that you have a whiplash injury depending upon your level of pain and if it leads to other health problems. If your neck has been injured see the top San Francisco Chiropractor, Dr. Scott Swanson to treat whiplash.
Why You Need a Whiplash Chiropractor
Chiropractors are healthcare professionals who address issues affecting the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Spinal misalignments can impede your body’s ability to function normally; when that happens, you may feel “off” or experience debilitating pain. While some doctors immediately jump to prescription medication or more invasive interventions such as surgery, chiropractic treatment for whiplash injuries focuses on adjusting the body to support normal function and restoring balance and alignment.
Dr. Scott Swanson brings his considerable expertise and compassion to patients in the Mission District of San Francisco. Dr. Swanson offers whiplash treatment to those suffering from neck strain or sprains, facilitating pain relief for patients who prefer a noninvasive, drug-free approach to healing.
