Specific skills are needed in the diagnosis and treatment of whiplash-type injuries. According to the Spine Research Institute of San Diego, three million crashes result in this kind of injury every year. Whiplash victims often suffer chronic symptoms and require prolonged treatment. Whiplash may even cause mild traumatic brain injuries and lead to long-term disabilities.
Most physicians are not sufficiently qualified to treat whiplash-related injuries. But our own Dr. Vaniecea Duncan from the Mesquite Accident & Injury Chiropractic clinic was recently certified by the Spine Research Institute of San Diego as an expert in the science of whiplash injury. This highest level of certification is only conferred on 100 physicians each year. Because of this training, she is able to provide the most effective treatment available.
Dr. Duncan believes people need to be educated about the repercussions of whiplash and its treatment protocols. She stresses that when you’ve been in an accident, it is critical for you to be cared for by someone who understands whiplash along with the other types of personal injuries that may occur. Dr. Duncan is that kind of care-giver. Through continued education and training, she has worked hard to become an expert in the treatment of personal injuries, and you can trust her to care for yours.
