If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.

Even seemingly minor auto accidents can leave you with stiffness, discomfort, and pain. A chiropractor can help with auto accident injuries by performing techniques to alleviate joint inflammation, reduce stiffness, and increase flexibility, strength, and range of motion. Additionally, by correcting any alignment problems, the chiropractor can help your injuries heal properly, which can prevent long-term complications. Dr. Steven Wachs, the highly trained chiropractor at Wachs Chiropractic Health Center in Chula Vista, can treat auto accident injuries.

Signs You Should See a Chiropractor

Whiplash is a common auto accident injury. Other types of neck and back injuries, such as herniated discs, can also occur. Some of the symptoms associated with injuries sustained during auto accidents include pain, discomfort, joint stiffness, decreased range of motion, and muscle weakness. Without the right treatment to ensure proper healing, these symptoms can become chronic and lead to additional problems.

Chiropractic techniques can be highly effective in treating auto accident injuries. They can reduce inflammation, improve musculoskeletal functioning, and correct alignment of the spine and affected joints. In addition to helping injuries heal properly, chiropractic methods can even help injuries heal faster. The skilled chiropractor at our office in Chula Vista treats injuries from auto accidents and can provide relief from the following injuries and symptoms:

  • Whiplash
  • Joint stiffness
  • Lower back pain
  • Limited range of motion
  • Chronic muscle and joint pain
  • Frequent headaches or migraines
  • Shooting pain in the legs
  • Chronic neck pain
  • Muscle weakness

Chiropractic Treatment Methods

A wide range of chiropractic techniques can be used to help you heal from your auto accident injuries. Two extremely effective and commonly utilized techniques include spinal manipulation and soft tissue massage. Spinal manipulation involves realigning the vertebrae along the spine, which helps reduce swelling and pressure on the joints, improve range of motion, and minimize pain. Soft tissue massage helps reduce joint inflammation and improve circulation, which can improve mobility and minimize pain.
