Our Chiropractor in San Diego Provides Auto Accident Injury Treatment

Dr. Carrie Roeder is proud to be your chiropractor in San Diego CA who offers natural chiropractic care for people looking for auto accident injury treatment. Read on to learn about what to expect with her help and what type of injury you or a loved one may be facing after a car crash.

Common Car Crash Injuries

As a car accident chiropractor in San Diego, Dr. Roeder has evaluated, diagnosed, and treated a wide variety of car crash injuries, including some of these most common ones:

  • Neck pain and back pain: often caused by inflammation and damage to muscle fibers, tendons, or ligaments, and/or disc herniation/bulges and joint subluxations (misalignments)
  • Whiplash: a combination of neck and shoulder pain and stiffness, as well as additional symptoms like headaches, mental fogginess, and jaw pain; caused by whip-like movement of the neck
  • Shoulder pain and hip pain: direct or indirect damage to muscles, nerves, blood vessels, tendons, ligaments, bones, and joints in these areas can cause stiffness, swelling, and pain
  • Nerve impingement (sciatica, radiculopathy): if a joint moves out of place or a disc bulges or herniates, a nerve can become pinched, leading to symptoms like numbness, tingling, pain, and weakness in the innervated limb

These conditions can range in severity and presentation. If left untreated, they can become chronic. Interestingly, these injuries may not even show up right away after your accident. It's this reason we strongly encourage everyone (from infants to seniors) to meet with a chiropractor for auto accident injuries screening and treatment.

Types of Auto Accident Injury Treatment

Our San Diego chiropractor is experienced in providing several types of effective, drug-free treatments to help people recover from an auto accident injury. If you or a loved one come see us for care, you may receive these and other services:

  • Chiropractic adjustments: our San Diego chiropractor uses gentle yet firm manual pressure to "adjust" the spine using a variety of specific chiropractic care techniques; these have been shown to restore normal joint movement/alignment and "reset" the nervous system, thereby reducing pain and accelerating healing
  • Massage therapy: increase circulation, reduce muscle spasms and pain, and relieve mental stress
  • Corrective exercises: prescribed specifically and progressively to promote better healing, endurance, and strength of affected muscles
  • Physiotherapy: our non-invasive modalities (like ultrasound and electrical stimulation) stimulate healing, pain relief, and anti-inflammation at the cellular level

  • "Regular visits with Dr. Roeder have significantly reduced the frequency of migraines I have suffered and the amount of neck and shoulder pain I have lived with for years. Because of Dr. Roeder I am able to focus on my busy life again"
    S.L., San Diego
  • "This was my first encounter with a chiropractor and found the experience to be delightful, gratifying and well worth it! Instead of being given a bunch of pills and told to come back next week, the manipulation for my back and side injuries including carpal tunnel syndrome, responded very well to the treatments. Thank you, Dr. Roeder for a job well done"
    W.B., San Diego
  • "I came in originally for neck pain, but getting adjusted helped lower my blood pressure & my insulin levels too.Dr. Roeder is so thorough in her care-I never knew how much better I could feel.I no longer have to take blood pressure medicine now."
    A.W., San Diego
  • "Since meeting Dr. Roeder at a health seminar, she has changed my life, drastically-improving my health 100%. I had a wide range of symptoms, including chronic fatigue, constant and severe headaches, body aches, nausea, difficulty concentrating and I felt extremely tired and weak. She diagnosed me with having Fibromyalgia and Candida. She put me on an anti-inflammatory diet and started me on chiropractic treatment and instructed me on strength exercises. I have lost 40 lbs and feel fantastic! Whenever I eat something that sets off a symptom, I can identify the food source now. I know how to eat well and stay away from foods that cause inflammation. Had it not been for Dr. Roeder's expert care, I believe I would still be suffering from all those symptoms-- instead I feel fantastic!"

  • "My son was diagnosed at a very young age with Hyperkyphosis. The doctor told us that surgery would be his only option but we needed to wait until he got older.My husband and I were heartbroken to think about such a major surgery for our little boy.We wanted to help him anyway we could without doing surgery. We are so thrilled to say that after seeing Dr. Roeder my son's back has made a major improvement.That there is a stronger chance that he may not need surgery after all.My son is three now and he is a very active little boy and you can't even tell that he had ever had a bad back.He is able to do what all little boys do:run, jump and climb!Taking my son to Dr. Roeder was the best decision that me and my husband have made as parents.I am so happy that Dr. Roeder is part of our lives.In fact all of my extended family members are patients of her too!Thank you so much Dr. Roeder for all of your help.You have been such a positive part of our lives.You are part of our family."
    G.C., San Diego
  • "My daughter has been diagnosed with Von Willabrand's and Precocious Puberty at age 7. She had her first period at age 8, and it was for three days. The doctors said that her hormone levels were off and there wasn't any truly safe treatment. After talking to Dr. Roeder, she started chiropractic care to help her body cope better with this disorder and hopefully change her hormones. Now my daughter and I have been told by doctors at Children's Hospital that it looks like she won't be starting her period until two years from now-this will be the normal time when she should start! They told us to keep up the good work of whatever we have been doing because it seems to be working."
    J.H., San Diego
  • "I got treated for a neck and back injury that appeared to be chronic following a major car accident. I had been to chiropractors before but without much success.After seeing Dr. Roeder now though, my mobility and general feeling of well-being has greatly improved."
    C.H., San Diego
  • "Dr. Roeder was recommended by a friend and I am completely satisfied. I was having low back pain also some neck pain. My back feels better than it has in years. I feel Dr. Roeder is complete in recommending exercising and treatment!"
    M.L., San Diego
  • "I just wanted to say thank you for making me 'new' again. Also, for helping us through our tough times. You always have been nice to us and helpful when we were in your office-it was just like a second home! Every time I walked through the door I felt calm and relaxed. You always asked us how we were doing and how we have been. I thought that was very thoughtful and caring of you-especially considering that awful car accident we had been in. None of my doctors before had been as courteous as you. You have really made a bad experience into a great experience in a blink of an eye. I always loved that EVERYONE was always smiling! I wish that when I grow up I can be like you, always making people happy and feel better! Well, I think that you just made another patient happy because of your wonderful 'magic.' Oh and I know I already said this but I think I am speaking for everyone when I say: Thank you Dr. Roeder!"
