Auto Accident Injury
Churn Creek Chiropractic invites residents of Redding and the surrounding areas of Bella Vista, Centerville, Shasta Lake City, Palo Cedro and Red Bluff to our practice for recovery after an auto accident injury. If you have been involved in a car accident and are experiencing pain, limited movement or fatigue, we encourage you to call us today for treatment options. Our Redding chiropractors, Dr. Donovan Hutchings and Dr. Stephen Edwards evaluate your injuries to determine the exact source of the pain. Then, they develop a chiropractic care plan to eliminate the cause and restore you to health. Chiropractic care provides a holistic approach for auto accident injury recovery. Our health team works to eliminate your symptoms such as pain and inflammation first, then we set out to position your body into a healthy alignment. As a result, your nerve signals, circulation and functions improve. Your body is able to restore itself when it is operating at this higher level. Chiropractic care provides a natural means to start this healing process.
An auto accident injury may start to feel uncomfortable immediately or your pain may begin a few days after the incident. Our Redding chiropractors encourage you to visit us as soon as possible so you can avoid future complications. Some of the auto accident injuries that we care for include:
If the impact of the other vehicle was forceful, your back may have taken the brunt of the injury. A vertebrae may have shifted out of alignment and is now pressing on a nerve. Or, a disc may have ruptured and is leaking out of its protective space between the vertebrae. Chiropractic adjustments gently slide the vertebrae into place which eliminates painful nerves and also allows the disc to return to its proper place.
Pain in your neck may be the result of whiplash, a shifted vertebrae or a seat belt injury. Our chiropractors provide gentle adjustments to set your neck into a healthy alignment. We also offer massage therapy services to reduce muscle tension and prevent the formation of scar tissue in deeper muscle layers.
This occurs when your head and neck are quickly jarred back and forth. The muscles may be strained, vertebrae can be out of alignment and you may feel headaches, neck pain, upper-back pain and difficulties with vision. Adjustments to your neck and back help your body recover and reduce your pain.
Other joints are affected by auto accidents and your knees may have absorbed impact. Our chiropractors position your knee joint into a pain-free alignment so you are able to move more freely.
The seat belt may also have injured your chest and shoulders. Our chiropractors evaluate this pain and position your shoulders and ribs to reduce your pain.
