Whiplash and Auto Accident Chiropractor in San Diego: The term whiplash is defined as an injury resulting from extremely rapid extension and flexion of the neck that results in damage to the muscles ligaments and tendons. Whiplash injuries can reveal themselves in many ways including neck pain, fatigue, headaches, shoulder pain, upper and lower back pain and cognitive changes.
Unfortunately, whiplash injuries are often delayed and can take weeks or even months to show symptoms. That is why it is incredibly important to meet with Dr. Ta immediately following any type of car accident or personal injury that results in a sharp movement of the neck.

The most effective treatment for whiplash injuries is a combination of chiropractic care, rehabilitation of the soft tissues and taking care of yourself at home.
