Auto Accident Injury in Orinda CA
Disc Herniation, Subluxation and Whiplash Treatment
Automobile accidents in Orinda CA are an unfortunate fact of life in today's world of rush-hour commuting, night driving, and weekend/holiday car trips. Many people, however, do not understand how little speed is required to create an auto accident injury. Low-speed rear impacts are common -- and of the 6 million Americans involved in such accidents each year, half of them will likely sustain whiplash, neck pain, back pain, and other musculoskeletal complaints. Here at Orinda Chiropractic Center, our chiropractic care techniques can help you recover from these painful issues without surgery or drugs.
Many auto accident injury victims seek whiplash treatment. Whiplash is a painful condition that occurs when the neck is thrown forward and backward from an impact. (Your neck receives "g-forces" up to 12 times greater than normal even from a mild 5-mph impact.) These violent motions can push your cervical discs out of alignment, allowing the discs between them to bulge onto sensitive nerve roots. Back pain from misalignments and disc herniation can also result from automobile impacts.
Bring Your Back or Neck Pain to Orinda Chiropractic Center
If you have experienced an auto accident, we urge you to have your spinal column evaluated at Orinda Chiropractic Center -- even if you don't feel hurt. Some injuries tend to show delayed symptoms, encouraging accident victims to go for weeks or months without a spinal screening. By the time the back pain or neck pain strikes, scar tissue may have formed within the tissues, inhibiting healing and recovery. If we can detect an auto accident injury and take steps to correct any imbalances right away, you might be able to avoid debilitating discomfort and loss of function.
If you have back pain, neck pain or other symptoms, rest assured that Orinda Chiropractic Center can help. Our natural methods provide genuine, long-lasting solutions with a minimum of inconvenience for patients. Conventional whiplash treatment, for instance, may force you to wear a cervical collar. This collar might relieve the worst of the pain, but it also deprives your neck muscles of the ability to heal themselves properly. Pain relieving drugs only numb the pain temporarily without offering any actual healing benefits. Major surgery for back pain or neck pain introduces a new wound into the equation and may force you to miss critical days at work.
By contrast, chiropractic care and whiplash treatment can restore your normal spinal balance naturally so that your body can heal itself. Spinal adjustment can help your discs heal and move them away from major nerve roots, eliminating the cause of your pain. In addition to spinal adjustment, the most common form of chiropractic care, we may also prescribe cranial sacral therapy, an effective technique for headache relief that complements whiplash treatment. We also offer cold laser therapy, which soothes strained muscles and helps them heal more quickly. Contact our chiropractic care center today for an evaluation of your auto accident injury.
