Home » Chiropractic Care For Whiplash Testimony- Gale Grijalva

Whiplash is usually associated with car accidents, any injures or blows that cause the head to jerk forward and back rapidly. The symptoms can include neck pain and strain, sleep disorders, headaches, and muscle spasms just to name a few, while the injuries can range from mild to severe affecting the neck and shoulders mostly. For Gale Grijalva, she experienced whiplash as she was a victim of an automobile accident. In this heartfelt testimony, Gale Grijalva explained how she was a victim of an automobile accident while driving on the freeway.  As a result, she started to experience severe pain symptoms on her back causing a tremendous effect on her overall health and wellness. She mentioned how when she was impacted, she felt her back exploded with pain and not finding the relief that she was looking for. The automobile accident had affected her ability to perform everyday physical activities as she would explain that even sleeping has become an issue for her as well. Gale even described the circumstances from the accident began to manifest and the severe pain symptoms started to increase over time. When she visited Dr. Alex Jimenez for chiropractic care for her automobile injuries, she started to experience the relief that she was looking for. Chiropractic care is a safe, effective, non-surgical, and alternative treatment option that utilizes manual manipulation on the musculoskeletal and nervous system causing instant relief. Chiropractic care focuses on diagnosing, treating, and preventing a variety of injuries and other health-related conditions, including automobile accident injuries. Chiropractic care will manually manipulate the body, causing the joints to release the trapped bubbles and realigning the body back to normal. Gale Grijalva highly recommends everyone who may have experienced any pain or automobile injuries to try chiropractic care as a non-surgical choice so they can experience the relief that they are looking for.

[00:00:08] Gale Grijalva. I came in because I was in a car accident and I was having severe back pain. I was driving on I-10, but it was really slow, like stop and go traffic maybe 20 miles an hour.

[00:00:25] And I was rear-ended by a semi. I mean it wasn’t really forceful because we were going really slow. It was just that like as soon as I felt the impact, my back just like exploded with pain.

[00:00:36] So as soon as it hit me, I just had this pain in my back and then when I got out of the car, it was really like a very severe pain.

[00:00:45] Yeah, literally anything sitting down, sitting in the car, getting in and out of the car, walking, standing. It’s difficult to even now like to switch positions. So when I’m laying down or if I stay laying down in one position too long, it is very, very painful.

[00:01:08] And just my back. It’s very tight and very stiff. Literally, anything that I do that requires moving or staying still, I feel it in my back. Well, I’m definitely able to do like day to day stuff a lot easier just doing anything like working out or like any type of activity that a person would take for granted if you don’t have pain.

[00:01:29] It’s different when you have pain. And so to get pain relief, it’s amazing. Very patient and very thorough. Definitely listen to my questions and try to answer them as best he could.

[00:01:43] Yeah, I would recommend him to anyone, anyone in need of any type of chiropractic care. I definitely recommend it to everybody. I tell everybody I know to come see them. It’s just like a much happier life with less pain.
