Car Accident Victims Find Relief at Fallbrook Spine Center

Fallbrook car accident victims benefit from chiropractic care When a person is injured in an auto accident and needs treatment, it is important to find a doctor who not only can successfully treat the injury, but one who can also provide documentation and testimony about the injury. 

Emergency room doctors stop the bleeding, mobilize broken bones, and treat life-threatening injuries that need immediate care. But, what about soft tissue injuries (tendons, ligaments, and muscles) supporting the neck, back, arms and legs? If left untreated, injuries (like whiplash) lead to severe neck pain, back pain, headaches, jaw pain (TMJ), etc., and decreased function over time - even if the crash happened at low speed and there were no visible injuries. Therefore, it is crucial for accident injury victims to see us right away so we can fully evaluate and treat these injuries before they cause further problems.


Whiplash is a common car accident injury that we help many patients overcome. It results from tremendous forces that whip the head and torso in different directions, resulting in neck injury, even at relatively low speeds. The neck is a complex network of bones, discs, ligaments, tendons, and muscles that not only hold up the head, but also protect and house the spinal cord and important arteries. Even if the bones themselves are not injured in an auto accident, they can be pulled out of proper alignment causing soft tissue injuries. This can tear ligaments, herniate intervertebral discs, and cause nerve damage, resulting in a multitude of difficult-to-pinpoint symptoms from neck pain, back pain, and shoulder pain to headaches, TMJ, vision problems and difficulty concentrating. Auto accidents can also cause trauma to the lower back and legs, leading to yet more pain and disability.

Our chiropractors are highly trained and vastly experienced in evaluating and helping patients recover from injuries caused in car accidents. They can precisely diagnose your injuries, map out a treatment plan that will help you find relief and return to your normal life, and provide proper medical reports and documentation. We understand what it takes to process and manage personal injury cases, with medically warranted treatment and accurate documentation throughout each case.  When care requirements are beyond our scope of practice, prompt referrals are made to qualified professionals, including orthopedists, pain management specialists, psychologists, etc.  We become partners in seeing personal injury cases to fruition.
