The fact of the matter is over 1,100 people are injured in automobile accidents each day in the United States, and more often than not, those who experience an auto injury are subjected to chronic neck, back, and spinal cord pain that impedes on daily life functioning. If proper preemptive measures are not taken, these significant injuries can have long-lasting effects on your health.
Corresponding auto injuries often include strain and whiplash to the head and neck as a result of the force of impact, dislocation of the cervical spine, herniated discs, fractured or compressed vertebrae, and even bruises and tears to the spinal cord tissue. Damage to the back, neck, and spinal cord typically occurs when the force of impact causes the musculoskeletal system to come out of alignment, putting pressure and subsequent strain on surrounding bones, muscles, and ligaments.
Chiropractic adjustments, such as spinal manipulation, are paramount to your recovery from an auto injury. Considering that spasms, stiffness, and tight muscles often accompany automobile accidents, restoring your range of motion and realigning your spine through chiropractic techniques works wonders when it comes to pain management and recovery.

The neck also known as the cervical spine, is one of the most delicate parts of the spine and in turn the body. The neck is responsible for housing the spinal cord, providing support for your head, and also administering blood flow to your brain. Since the neck connects your spine with your skull, it is extremely vulnerable to injuries, infections, and conditions that can lead to pain and discomfort.
Neck pain is amongst the most prominent ailments of the musculoskeletal system, and nearly 2/3 of Americans have claimed to experience neck pain at some point over the course of their lifetimes. There are a number of possible reasons as to why an individual is exposed to neck pain; poor posture which can lead to a misalignment of the spine, injuries that have been sustained as a result of accidents, arthritis (rheumatoid and osteoarthritis), and even Temporomandibular joint disorders such as teeth grinding or jaw clenching.
Dr. Luneburg is no stranger to neck pain; having undergone it himself led him to seek chiropractic care as an adolescent, eventually making it his life work to aid others in their pain management practices. At Champion Family Chiropractic, we utilize our expertise to alleviate neck pain in the best ways we know how: chiropractic care with cervical manipulation and physical therapy.
Analogous to back pain, many sufferers of neck pain tend to mask their condition with OTC and even prescription pain medications, muscle relaxers, and massages or hot packs. Although these medications may provide a quick-fix, they fail to address the underlying issue that is causing the problem. Rather, we conduct thorough, full-scale examinations of your body that involves analyzing your medical history and giving the special attention your body warrants.
Over 31 million Americans claim to experience back pain at any given times, and it is the single leading cause of disabilities across the globe. If proper precautions are taken by a chiropractor or physical therapist, the threat posed by back pain can be significantly decreased, but first let’s understand what tends to cause these prominent pains in the first place.
Back pains are often the result of auto injuries or other accidents, sports injuries, overuse and/or underuse, improper lifting techniques, and even commonplace wear and tear. Many people who exhibit back pain attempt to combat their ailments with OTC pain killers such as Aspirin and Advil, but these quick-fixes do not take care of the problem; they merely mask it.
Dr. Luneburg is an industry expert, who utilizes chiropractic adjustments in conjunction with physical therapy practices to alleviate the back pain that has been ailing you. These processes are designed to realign the spine back to its original and correct positioning, lessening the pain inflicted on your nerves, discs, muscles, and soft tissues of surrounding areas. Additionally, physical therapy works by strengthening the muscles which allows for a greater range of motion. Our practice advocates for a cohesive chiropractic and physical therapy technique, by designing a program specific to your body’s needs.
Personal injury chiropractic care is utilized by millions of people who are eager to optimize their daily health functioning and combat potential damages incurred by daily activities. Chiropractic adjustments and manipulations are measures taken to improve your spinal range of motion, diminishing possible future denigration of the spine, and ensuring your body’s innate ability to heal itself.
Personal injuries can encompass a wide variety of causes; auto accidents, workplace accidents, product defects, normal wear and tear, and sometimes even assaults. Many of those who are introduced to the services of a chiropractor as a result of chronic pain or suffering tend to continue practices even after their ailments have been alleviated. Wellness care becomes a staple of everyday life, and those who undergo it understand that it sincerely optimizes their overall health.
After sustaining a personal injury, even those perceived as insignificant, we advocate for you to schedule a diagnostic appointment as immediately as possible. It is not uncommon for symptoms to emerge days or weeks after an accident, even if initially unrecognized. Typically, the severity of the pain or suffering associated with an accident becomes increasingly worse as time goes on, which is why Champion Family Chiropractic suggests that you schedule a diagnosis with us soon after your incident has taken place.
