Care for Injuries
Whenever you suffer a major injury, whether from a car accident, repetitive motion while working or by falling, your muscles will probably spasm and contract into painful knots. Shortened muscles can cause your spine and other joints to move out of alignment, creating even more pain. Since the most common injuries associated with motor vehicle accidents are sprains and strains of the spinal muscles and ligaments, chiropractic treatment can be particularly beneficial.
Dr. Neil Kraus has helped hundreds of patients recover from debilitating injuries. For over 12 years, he provided chiropractic care for injured patients at the Occupational Injury Clinic at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco. He understands how a body reacts to a sudden impact, such as in an automobile accident, and how to get tight muscles and joints moving again.
If you suffer from whiplash, Dr. Kraus will gently move your neck joints to stretch and free up restricted muscles. If you suffer from a worker’s comp injury, he can use a wide range of chiropractic techniques to address your unique joint and muscular problems.
In addition to “hands on” treatment, Dr. Kraus will teach you how to move properly in your daily activities with minimal strain to your body. He will talk with you about your work, home and recreational interests. His goal is to help you get back to doing your normal activities as quickly and as pain-free as possible.
