Whiplash!

Whiplash!

WhiplashWoman.jpgPain in the neck, head, shoulders or upper back, resulting from a motor vehicle crash is known as, "whiplash". While many other injuries, such as low back, mid back or extremity injuries occur, whiplash is probably the most common motor vehicle injury. It usually results from rear end collisions and can be extremely debilitating, even when the accident occurs at low speed. It is an ironic fact that vehicle safety equipment, designed to protect both the vehicle and the occupant from serious injury, often contribute to musculoskeletal injuries such as whiplash.

In their position as musculoskeletal specialists, chiropractors are uniquely qualified to deal with most motor vehicle injuries. Their training in the treatment and rehabilitation of soft tissue injuries is second to none and studies now show that chiropractic treatment is superior to other types of treatment for whiplash and other musculoskeletal injuries.

At San Pedro N. Chiropractic Center our doctors of chiropractic, Dr. Doreen Lewis-Overton and Dr. Terry Overton, have years of training and experience in not only the treatment of automobile related injuries, but also in the chiropractic/legal aspects of your case and dealing with insurance companies. Both doctors are graduates of the prestigious Spine Research Institute of San Diego (SRISD), a private research organization dedicated to gathering and disseminating motor vehicle crash information, as well as information on other types of trauma. As such, they have access to hundreds of pages of current research material that is useful in helping you settle your case.

If you have been involved in a motor vehicle crash and are looking for gentle treatment, powerful results and the expertise and experience you need to help settle your case, look no further. The doctors at San Pedro N. Chiropractic Center are here to help you.

Testimonial

  • "I have just recently moved to San Antonio and was in need of a Chiropractor. When I found Dr. Lewis, I found more than that. First, after many years of going to some very good chiropractors, I found the best one I have ever gone to regardless of location and I have lived in many states and cities; second, I have found someone that looks farther than just an adjustment and is concerned about my holistic wellness. Very few health care professionals provide the level of care that I receive when I see Dr. Lewis. She is helpful, caring, compassionate while being I true professional. I couldn't have be more blessed"

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
