Auto Accident Care

The sudden impact of a car accident is enough to turn one’s life upside down. At RINJ, we understand the bio-mechanical relationships that result in pain and discomfort following whiplash-type injuries. Did you know that many whiplash injuries can also result in trauma to the lower back?

In addition to agonizing pain, whiplash-type injuries may also result in torn muscles, stretched tendons, inflamed joints, internal bruising, and bleeding.

The most common auto injury is whiplash, which is caused by a sudden movement of the head. The result is that muscles and ligaments supporting the spine can become strained or torn. Some symptoms may include neck pain or stiffness, pain between the shoulder blades, blurred vision, fatigue, headache and dizziness to name a few.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration more than 800,000 people suffer from whiplash every year. Costs related to whiplash total more than Five Billion annually. Proper care can help reduce long term pain and discomfort.

Just as it is important to get rid of pain following an accident, it is important to correct bio-mechanical injuries and restore normal ranges of motion. At RINJ, we have successfully treated thousands of auto accidents and work injuries. We have learned the importance of care following an accident.

Untreated bio-mechanical injuries may not heal optimally. If you have injuries from an auto accident, a thorough Chiropractic Exam to determine if you are a candidate for Chiropractic Care is important. If we do not feel we can help… we will tell you so! 

Insurance companies realize the many advantages of Chiropractic care. Chiropractic treatment is fully covered by most automobile insurance policies, no matter whether you were the driver, a passenger, or a pedestrian. We will help you complete all the necessary insurance paper work and file a claim with the responsible insurance company.

  • ""My husband & I have been going to Dr. Cattafi for almost a year now and it has been great. Crossfit has made my muscles super tight and uncomfortable, and each and every time I go to him he fixes me! He shows me exercises to do at home and is really knowledgeable about his work. If you need a good chiropractor I would recommend him a million times!""
