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. Yevgeniya Yanayva from the Spring Valley/Coit 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 be able to provide the most effective treatment available.
In keeping with her mission to treat her patients with uncompromising care, Dr. Yanayva continually pursues educational and training opportunities. In addition to this highest level of certification in the science of whiplash injury, Dr. Yanayva has Bachelor of Science degrees in biochemistry, anatomy, and health and wellness along with her Doctor of Chiropractic degree. She has worked hard to become an expert in the understanding and treatment of personal injury, and you can trust her to take care of yours.
