Auto Accident Chiropractor in Pleasanton, CA
Chiropractic care is especially important if you have been in an auto accident. Depending on the severity of the collision, you are probably making phone calls to insurance companies, auto body shops, and mechanics. While obvious injuries such as broken bones and lacerations require immediate medical attention, less obvious injuries sustained in a car accident such as sore muscles, reduced range of motion, headaches, neck pain, and back pain are often ignored. Did you know, there are over 3 million cases of whiplash every single year in America? Treatment for whiplash, among other injuries sustained in a car accident, should never go untreated. This is where The Pleasant Chiropractor comes in. With over 20 years of experience, we’ve worked with hundreds of car accident victims to get them back on their feet as quickly as possible.
Fact is, most of the injuries sustained in a car accident are below the surface of the skin. Car accidents typically involve a sudden violent impact, causing a significant amount of trauma on the body, even if you can’t see it. For most patients, we can see swelling, inflammation, and damage to soft tissue for weeks after the accident. Patients often suffer from a stiff neck, headaches, sore muscles, blurred vision, reduced range of motion in their legs, feet, arms, or hands, and so much more. Sadly, most people just associate this with a “normal” feeling after a car accident and that it will subside with some ibuprofen. Unfortunately, these injuries can often lead to more serious injuries down the road as your body looks to compensate for the pain that you are experiencing. Over time, we see patients develop limps, they lean to one side or the other, they suffer from chronic headaches, they have a limited range of motion, and they simply stop enjoying the activities they once enjoyed. When a patient waits to get treatment, these injuries become much more difficult to correct and treat.
What We Do For Auto Accidents
Immediately after the accident, we recommend you schedule a consultation for a free initial evaluation. It is important that we look at all aspects of the body, and through our motion study x-ray, we will determine the source and cause of the pain you may be experiencing. From there, we will develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses each of our findings and gets you back on your feet as quickly as possible! Our treatments will help reduce inflammation, restore normal nerve function, and allow the body to heal naturally, without the use of narcotics.
