Dr. Charles Salanger and Dr. Carol Spiegelman are dedicated to providing superior family chiropractic care, including personalized services for pediatrics, pregnant mothers and geriatric patients.

San Diego Chiropractors in 92111 Helps Car Accident Injury Patients, Workers Compensation, Personal Injury and More

Chiropractic for Adults - Following a car accident injury or workers compensation injury, many adults suffer from pain due to soft tissue injuries and misalignment of the cervical and lumbar spine. A herniated disc in the lower back, for example, can put pressure on the sciatic nerve and cause intense, shooting back pain and discomfort in the legs and buttocks. Whiplash can also result in chronic neck pain and headaches and migraines. While prescription medication can temporarily relieve this pain, medication cannot correct a herniated disc or restore cervical alignment following an car accident. Adjustments from our San Diego chiropractors can correct these underlying problems. Our wellness care team is also experienced with workers compensation injuries.

San Diego Chiropractors in 92111Chiropractic for Pregnant Women - During pregnancy, a woman's body undergoes profound physical changes to accommodate the growing baby. Increased weight gain, a change in weight distribution, pressure on the pelvic muscles and a flood of pregnancy hormones can lead to significant joint and muscle pain, including neck pain, back pain, and even headaches. Care from a chiropractor is completely safe during pregnancy. Specific chiropractic adjustments can bring balance to the pelvis and optimally position a baby for birth. This is especially important for women who wish to have a natural birth experience.

Chiropractic for Pediatrics - Children as young as infants can benefit from proper spinal alignment. Recent studies by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) found that gentle, chiropractic alignment is safe and beneficial for pediatric patients of all ages.

Chiropractic care can help patients recovering from acute injuries such as birth trauma, sports accidents or other personal injuries. The parents of our youngest patients report that adjustments have helped relieve chronic colic, acute earaches, upper respiratory infections, neck pain and back pain from injuries. Just like in adults, alignment can relieve chronic pain and may also help improve sleep and strengthen the immune system.

Chiropractic for Geriatrics - As we age, the natural wear and tear of our joints begins to take a toll on our bodies. The loss of coordination and balance makes older patients more susceptible to falls and injury, and can also lead to difficulty walking. In addition to gentle chiropractic alignment, rehabilitation exercises for older adults can restore natural balance and prevent injury.

Our chiropractors and massage therapists are experienced helping seniors safely recover from personal injuries. Our recovery programs are tailored to each patient's needs, but typically include core strengthening and corrective care exercises that increase the range of movement, flexibility and motion. Following treatment with an massage therapist, many of our senior patients are more active now than they have been years!

Whether you are old or young, struggling with chronic neck pain, headaches and mirgaines or recovering from a personal injury, our family chiropractors can help you safely relieve pain and recover a full range of movement and motion.

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. ...
