Whiplash Treatment in Austin

Whiplash

Studies show that approximately 3 million cases of Whiplash occur each year. Whiplash, known simply as a neck strain or sprain, occurs when the body is suddenly accelerated and then decelerated. This causes a ‘whipping’ motion, which can damage the structures in the neck. Many cases occur during auto accidents, resulting in injuries to discs, ligaments, muscles, and nerves. Common symptoms of Whiplash include neck pain or stiffness, headaches, radiating back pain and numbness in the extremities. While the most common Whiplash symptoms are physical, this condition can also cause cognitive difficulty, ringing in the ears, memory loss and other psychological issues.  

While some people don’t experience immediate symptoms, they often surface hours or days after the accident. This can lead the victim to believe that they are suffering from a different condition, making an accurate diagnosis even more important.  The providers at Austin Preferred Integrative Medicine have treated many patients suffering from this condition, making us a trusted clinic for Whiplash treatment in Austin.

Whiplash Treatment in Austin

Because of the complexity of the anatomy in the neck, no two cases of Whiplash are exactly the same. Consequently, we have each new patient in for a thorough initial evaluation before creating a customized plan of care. Our integrative approach to Whiplash treatment centers around relieving pain by restoring health and function to the body, rather than recommending prescription drugs or surgery. Our providers typically recommend some combination of the following modalities for Whiplash treatment:

Health insurance covers some of the options listed above, while others are only available at the self-pay rate. For patients treating with us in relation to a personal injury case, we accept Letters of Protection and Personal Injury Protection.
