Did you know that most auto accident injuries are
not detected for months or even years?
Most auto accident victims are unaware of hidden injuries because the pain is masked by medications. Sadly, most doctors don't even have the training to detect soft tissue injuries, so they prescribe drugs to cover up your symptoms. Insurance companies win because they get released from liability by requesting that victims settle their cases before they even get checked for soft tissue injuries!

The One Family Wellness Center offers the residents of Bay Area excellent treatment of Whiplash or spinal pain associated with automobile injuries.
What is Whiplash? Whiplash occurs when your head is hurled violently backward causing a (hyperextension) and or a forward (hyper flexion) - injuring the neck. The injury can be worse if your neck may have been turned to the side when the accident occurred. The injury is one of the most common car accident injuries people suffer, (especially on the busy highways and roads)
The effects of a whiplash injury can be short term or long term and are often accompanied by a concussion. Often whiplash injuries can extend to shoulders, arms, and may cause injury to joints, spinal disc, ligaments, nerves and cervical, thoracic, and lumbar muscles.
Whiplash can be diagnosed with a simple physical examination or using x-rays by a chiropractor or medical doctor. Either one will use X-rays to see if there are any fractures of the vertebrae and the extent to which the alignment of the neck has been altered. A whiplash injury can easily cause your neck's natural curve to be reversed. This causes the uneven distribution of the weight of your head and may further misalign your vertebrae. This condition can lead to arthritic degeneration and recurring pain. Our collaborated treatments of both Korean medicine and chiropractic to help our patients overcome the pain and disability associated with whiplash or spinal pain.
