Gonstead Chiropractor, Dr. Craig Barcomb has treated thousands of auto accident injuries. Symptoms from these incidents are often delayed for days, weeks or even months. This is why it's so important to contact an Auto Injury Chiropractor as soon as possible after an automotive collision.
Whiplash is among the most typical injuries people experience from car crashes. Vehicles struck from the rear or involved in collisions with another object from various directions will make the neck snap from one position to the other. The result is a violent and sudden over-extension of muscles, ligaments and tendons. Severe strains and even tears can occur.
This soft tissue damage may cause sensations of soreness, stiffness, and numbness. Whiplash injuries can also cause vertebrae to misalign. The fibrous cartilage (or discs) separating the vertebrae can also become herniated, bulged or ruptured, causing nerve damage. Gonstead Chiropractic Care can be enormously beneficial in treating all of these injuries and their symptoms.
Dr. Craig Barcomb has practiced this method of automotive injury Chiropractic Care for over 30 years. The Gonstead Method places a specific focus on accurate diagnosis of the underlying injury through examination, X-rays and Thermographic Imaging. This guides Dr. Barcomb's prescribed treatment plans which may include relieving pressure on the discs and nerves through precise adjustments designed to return the spine and other joints to their natural and proper alignment.
Additionally, Chiropractic Massage Therapies and Licensed Physical Therapy treatments can also be used to help reduce or eliminate associated pain and discomfort caused by automotive injuries.
