Whiplash, What is It?

Joseph Coupal - Monday, June 24, 2019

Good morning, my name is Dr. Alex Hernandez, here at Life Chiropractic and Acupuncture. Today we are going to talk about Whiplash. Many people have heard of whiplash and it commonly occurs in car accidents and sports injuries.

Let's talk about what whiplash is exactly. With whiplash the head can snap forward or backwards and in the process there are injuries. You can tear muscles, ligaments or injure the spinal cord or nerves. Everything happens quickly with whiplash.

In a car accident that happens at 9.5 mph, a lot of injury can occur even when not a lot happens to the car. At Life Chiropractic and Acupuncture this is what we do for this:

  • we do a proper analysis
  • we do a proper examination
  • we find out how much whiplash you have received

If you are suffering from whiplash, call my office at Life Chiropractic and Acupuncture.
