The road to relief

Starts Here

Have you been involved in an auto accident? Did you know even a minor car crash can shift your spine out of alignment, leading to gradual discomfort and pain over time? Auto accidents are responsible for numerous injuries, acute and chronic. Our doctors are well educated on auto injury mechanisms and treatment with multiple post-doctoral certifications. Specific programs are designed on an individual basis, geared toward the repair of injured ligaments, discs, joint capsules, and myofascial structures. Emphasis is placed on tissue healing, regaining lost function, and pain reduction.

Did you know that more than 10,000 people traveling on roadways in Alaska get into an accident every year! Statistics show that this results in thousands of people being injured and having to deal with the emotional, mental, and physical stress of a life-changing moment. Automobile crashes are one of the most unexpected life events that can happen and occur in an instant while simultaneously leaving a lasting impact whether you are the driver, passenger, or a child in the back. When you or a loved one, sustain an injury in a car crash, your day-to-day life becomes consumed by calls from insurance adjusters, attorneys, and doctor’s appointments.

Injuries sustained in auto accidents can range from minor to severe, including being fatal. These automobile crashes are not only emotionally stressful, especially when children are present in a vehicle, but can be physically traumatic and often lead to treatment beyond physical scars and bruising. Common injuries sustained by car crash victims are facet capsule injuries, intervertebral disc damage, ligament tears, “whiplash” – a quick forward and back motion of the head which leads to damage to soft tissues, significant changes in the curves of the spine leading to a weakened overall structure and posture, and even head injuries that are capable of resulting in a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Soft tissue injuries happen with damage to the muscles, ligaments, and tendons throughout the body. A few signs and symptoms of soft tissue injuries include swelling, possible bruising or discoloration, and pain. Hard tissue injuries to bones and joints do not have to be limited to fractures but include misalignments or subluxations of the spine as well. These can be severe due to the effect on the nervous system that is created when they are present.

It’s common for a car accident victim to not realize they have whiplash or soft tissue injuries from an auto accident because they are often being treated with pain medications, over-the-counter, anti-inflammatories, and muscle relaxants for other symptoms associated with their injuries. Many times people may think that the pain will just “go away” but it lingers and tends to get worse in the process. Furthermore, the physical effects of a motor vehicle accident are often not known or immediately felt at the time of the crash. It could be days, weeks, or even months later before symptoms show up, which is why seeking chiropractic care at Whole Family Chiropractic immediately will result in better results, faster. Our clinic has competent doctors certified in Whiplash and Traumatology through the Spine Research Institute of San Diego while also being proud to be practitioners of the most advanced rehabilitative technique in chiropractic – Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP) which helps us to get our patients and their families the best results, right away.

Traumatic Brain Injuries, general head injuries, Subluxations, and “Whiplash” are considered to be more serious injuries because of the relationship they have to the spine. Whiplash occurs when the head is suddenly jerked forward, backward, or to the side. When whiplash occurs, it destabilizes the spine, causing severe pain as well as other symptoms, such as:

  • PNeck pain / stiffness
  • PShoulder pain
  • PHeadaches, Dizziness, and Migraines
  • PSleep Difficulties and Unusual / Unexplained Fatigue
  • PReduced range of motion in the neck
  • PForgetfulness, Trouble Concentrating, and Mood Changes
  • PNumbness and Tingling
  • PNausea and Vomiting
  • PHip, Knee, and Foot Pain
  • PBlurred Vision and Ringing in the Ears
  • PMid and Low Back Pain
  • PChest and Rib Pain
  • PHigh Blood Pressure
Seeking immediate treatment at Whole Family Chiropractic after an auto accident for any known or unknown injuries will allow you to maintain the health of your spine after it’s been subjected to that trauma. But by not receiving the proper treatment for injuries such as whiplash, then the result can be chronic and long-term conditions that result in pain and affect you as you pursue your own goals. When anybody part sustains a sudden, jarring trauma, it can stretch or even tear the surrounding ligaments. Fortunately, the doctors of WFC specialize in caring for muscles, bones, nerves, and connective tissue of the body, so your visit to our office is critical to ensure you heal properly after an auto accident.

Even if you’re involved in what seems to be a minor auto accident where there’s seemingly minor damage to the car itself, there can still be serious physical injuries to the driver and/or passengers. Plenty of research indicates that there is no relationship between the amount of damage to the car and damage to the occupant as there are many factors involved. By seeking early care and treatment from a doctor at Whole Family Chiropractic, you’re more likely to fully heal and recover quicker with no long-term complications. Our WFC chiropractor doctors are also able to help relieve pain and make necessary adjustments to the spine that can better your overall health.
