Kearny Mesa Whiplash Sufferers Rely on Our Chiropractors in the 92111 Area

car accident injury in Kearny Mesa and San DiegoKearny Mesa and San Diego car accident injury victims often have a hard time finding the treatment they need in an emergency room, simply because emergency room doctors are pressed for time to treat cases that are immediately life threatening. So a patient complaining of mild neck pain may simply be sent home with some painkillers and a neck brace. However, in many cases a soft tissue injury like whiplash often hesitates to produce immediate symptoms. It may be hours, days or even weeks before the neck and back pain, headaches and migraines and difficulty concentrating manifest themselves. If not treated promptly, the condition can worsen and become more painful, so it is important to get help as soon as possible from a chiropractor in the 92111 zip code.
Our chiropractors are highly-skilled and experienced at diagnosing and treating car accident injury patients, and we have the ability to take all the time needed to fully understand the extent of the injury. Then we can design a successful treatment plan, tailored to the individual's needs. This typically includes spinal adjustments to correct misalignments in the curvature of the lumbar or cervical spine (back and neck) that may be pinching nerves and causing pain.
We also provide state-of-the art physiotherapy techniques that stimulate the body's own inner healing mechanisms so that we can help our patients avoid becoming dependent on painkillers. These techniques are designed to induce the body to produce its own endorphins (natural painkillers). Massage therapy, for example, warms up and loosens tight, tense muscles, increases circulation to injured tissues, and improves range of motion. Cryotherapy, on the other hand, which we often use right after an accident, decreases circulation for a short time in order to reduce inflammation and relieve pain.
Our chiropractors also assist patients to become stronger than they were before. We coach each person through exercises and stretches designed to help rehabilitate whatever part of the body was injured so that it is restored to full strength and range of motion.
So please see us as quickly as possible after a car accident so we can check for whiplash or any other injuries and treat them promptly. We can help you stop suffering and start enjoying life again today! Call us at (858) 565-8645.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "My back went out suddenly - for no reason. Went to 2 Dr.'s, had an X-ray - they found nothing wrong and had no recommendations. THEN a friend told me about Dr. Salanger - in 15 minutes the pain was gone and has not returned 2 weeks later. He gave me a couple exercises to do to strengthen the area. That's it - simple as that when you know what you're doing! THANK YOU Dr. Salanger!"

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
