Auto Injury

Whether you were recently in a serious collision or a “minor” fender bender, chiropractic care can help treat auto accident related injuries and safely manage your pain. We have been treating auto collision injury victims for over 40 years. By not simply masking your pain, instead treating it at the source, we help injured victims recover faster from their injuries so they can get back to living a full and active life.

Whiplash is the most common car accident injury. This injury occurs when the force of a rear-impact accident, “whips” the cervical spine beyond its normal range of motion. Otherwise known as Acceleration / Deceleration cervical spine injury, whiplash may cause spinal misalignment, aka subluxation. But it may also strain tendons and ligaments or cause ligament laxity. Ligament laxity can result in recurring neck pain, shoulder pain, headaches at the base of the skull, and stiffness and soreness of the neck. Other common symptoms of whiplash injuries include difficulty concentrating on work, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, disrupted sleep, problems with memory loss and even depression. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms mentioned above after an accident, our chiropractor recommends a full diagnostic exam to determine if you have sustained a whiplash injury. Auto accident injuries can be devastating if they’re not properly treated. At Auto Injury Chiropractic, we help people suffering from car-accident related pain. Using medication-free techniques, we provide diagnosis and treatment to adults and children of all ages. We use chiropractic methods to treat pain at its source, so our patients can heal while they experience relief.

Neck and Back Pain

Neck and back pain have many different origins, most originating for misalignment of the spine, unbalanced muscles, scoliosis, ergonomics and many more. History and lifestyle are two very important aspects of your treatment plan that must be thoroughly reviewed and understood.

The neck and low back region contains many delicate, pain sensitive structures commonly exposed to abuse and abnormal stresses. Incomplete rehabilitation of past injuries, poor posture, prolonged sitting, and lack of periodic spinal alignments are some of the more common factors in the development of neck and low back problems. Fortunately, most individuals suffering from neck and back problems will find chiropractic care extremely beneficial. Unlike prescription drugs, most chiropractic procedures address the cause of the majority of neck and back problems, not simply the symptoms. Best of all, chiropractic care is safe, natural, and noninvasive... no upset stomach, no liver damage, no addiction, no side effects! Are you experiencing neck and back pain?
