You've been in an auto injury! You're in pain! Your life has been changed and it probably wasn't even your fault. We know that even a fender bender can cause pain and hardship. It is affecting your work and play time. Our goal is to help ease your pain, regain your mobility, help you recover, and get back to work as quickly as possible. At the Healing Touch Chiropractic, located in Midtown Sacramento, Dr. Darrick Lawson will pay special attention to injuries unique to car accidents.

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!

Soft Tissue Injury SYMPTOMS include:

  • Muscle Stiffness
  • Neck Pain
  • Numbness and Tingling
  • Low Back Pain
  • Fatigue
  • Spasms
  • Headaches
  • Mid-Back Pain
  • Difficulty Sleeping
  • Sore and Achy Muscles
  • Difficulty Concentrating

**Improper healing of soft tissue injuries can cause arthritis and long-term pain.**

Don't settle with your insurance company until your injuries have been thoroughly documented and treated.

Dr. Darrick Lawson at Healing Touch Chiropractic in Midtown Sacramento offers the residents of Sacramento excellent treatment of Whiplash or spinal pain associated with automobile injuries.

Chiropractors are specialists in treating non-surgical spine injuries such as whiplash, neck and back spinal injuries from automobile accidents. The job of Dr. Darrick Lawson and The Healing Touch Chiropractic is to help his patients overcome the pain and disability associated with whiplash or spinal pain.

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 surrounding the Sacramento area).

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. The Healing Touch Chiropractic has X-Ray capability. 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. The Healing Touch Chiropractic and Dr. Darrick Lawson have been treating patients for over 18 years. We also offer the area's only Lordex Spinal Decompression machine for the treatment of disc injuries.

The courses of treatment will vary depending on the extent of your injury and if you have injury to joints, discs, and ligaments, cervical muscles, or nerve roots. The Healing Touch Chiropractic can choose or work with your MD and or physical therapist to plan the best combination of therapy. This may consist of heat, cold, traction, trigger point therapy, massage, exercise rehabilitation, and neck or back exercises. Chiropractic treatment of whiplash injuries realigns the neck and helps regain muscle flexibility.

How do you know if you've been injured in an accident?

Following any accident:

  1. Are you experiencing headaches, head and neck pains, stiff neck, muscle spasms?
  2. Do you have restricted head motion?
  3. Do you have equilibrium problems, loss of hearing, ringing in the ears?
  4. Are you experiencing eye strain, increased sensitivity to light?
  5. Have you felt light-headed, excessively tired, or blacked out?
  6. Have you had any neuralgia (nerve pain) or neuritis (nerve inflammation)?
  7. Do you have cold hands or feet, or numbness of arms, hands, shoulders, feet, legs?
  8. Are you experiencing periods of unexplained depression, anxiety, irritability?
  9. Are you unable to concentrate, have poor memory?
  10. Do you have pains between the shoulders, low-back pains, tremors, rapid heartbeat?

If your answer to any of these questions is YES, you may be suffering from a misalignment or dislocation due to whiplash. At The Healing Touch Chiropractic, we are eminently qualified to assess any problem following tests and examination.
