Accident Injury Treatments


Auto accidents can cause a wide range of injuries. Headaches, low back pain, neck pain, and poor mobility can all be caused from even a minor auto accident. It is important to get these injuries treated before they worsen. With chiropractic care, conditions such as whiplash can improve more rapidly. At Castro Chiropractic in Norwalk, CA, we can help. Our chiropractor, Dr. Castro, will carefully assess your condition and provide you with the necessary treatment to help your body heal naturally.

Whiplash Symptoms from an Auto Accident Injury

It doesn't take much of an impact to sustain a whiplash injury from a car accident. If your head jerks forward and then backward rapidly, this can lead to soft tissue damage in your neck and upper back. If these muscles, ligaments, and tendons get strained, you can experience headaches, neck pain, and nausea. If you are dealing with symptoms of whiplash, our chiropractor can help ease these symptoms in a variety of ways.

How Chiropractic Care Helps after an Auto Accident

Your first visit to our chiropractor after an auto accident will involve assessing your situation to determine the treatment you need. You might be suffering from whiplash, or have a lower back injury that needs to be dealt with. You will go through the assessment, and may need further imaging to rule out broken or dislocated bones. Once a treatment plan is established, you will work with our chiropractor several times a week. Chiropractic care gives your body the support it needs to heal naturally, without the use of prescription medication.

Treatments We Offer

For back and neck injuries, we often use spinal adjustments or spinal decompression. Adjustments realign the spine and back, while decompression gently stretches the spine to allow discs to move back into place. We also offer soft tissue treatments, including trigger point therapy, myofascial release, and massage therapy. These techniques will improve blood circulation and reduce inflammation to promote healing in the body. Dr. Castro can also give you corrective exercises to speed up your recovery. Stretching and strengthening exercises will improve your range of motion and reduce your chances of future injuries or recurring pain.
