Automobile accidents are an unfortunate reality for those who participate in the commuter lifestyle. Even with the smallest of crashes, there is almost always a negative physical effect on the body. Though you may not feel it, your body has absorbed the force created by several tons of material colliding. If you have been in any kind of accident, we strongly urge you to see how we can help you at Scorca Chiropractic Center.
We have seen a full range of injuries sustained from car accidents. Most commonly, our clients come in with neck, shoulder and back injuries. Whiplash is a non-medical term that describes what happens when a driver is struck, usually unaware, from behind, causing their neck to quickly thrust backward and then forward. This causes misalignment in the cervical region and damages sensitive tissues in the neck. Whiplash can result from a crash at speeds as low as 15 mph.
When a collision is anticipated, people’s natural reaction is to tense the muscles in preparation for impact. This quick and involuntary motion can strain the back and neck muscles unduly, complicating the effect of the impact when it happens. We seek to address the underlying cause of pain rather than the external symptoms. Through gentle spinal adjustments, stretching and exercise, we rehab the spine and reduce the likelihood of chronic pain occurring. The sooner you come in to see us after the accident, the quicker we can help you on the way to recovery. There is no reason to deal with this pain alone.
If you are experiencing pain as a result of a car crash, call our office in Fremont at (510) 656-9077. Our goal is to evaluate your specific condition and create a wellness plan that will immediately start reducing your pain. We tailor all our treatments to the individual, taking into account their injury, their lifestyle and all other prevalent psychological or physiological factors.
