Auto Injury


If you’re suffering from an auto injury in San Marcos, CA, Dr. Mark Cafagna provides a caring, individualized, and natural approach to health and healing.

Common Auto Accident Injuries

Millions of people are injured in auto accidents every single year. Sadly, not everyone who gets injured seeks care. It’s common to be in shock after an accident, leaving the body numb to much of the pain and symptoms. However, even a minor auto accident can cause an injury.

Consider this: If you are simply running at your full speed on foot and run into something, you can easily be hurt as the force of the impact runs through your body. A vehicle goes at much faster speeds than a human, even when it’s moving slowly. Therefore, the force that impacts your body in an auto accident is even greater.

Even if you feel nothing directly after the accident, there is a good chance that damage has occurred to some part of your body. An auto injury in San Marcos, CA often fits into one of these categories:

  • Whiplash
  • Back, neck, and shoulder injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Knee, wrist, and hand injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Herniated discs

Even if you feel no pain in the beginning, you may soon find yourself suffering from the symptoms of these injuries, which typically include:

  • Headaches
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Acute to severe pain
  • Swelling, tension and tenderness
  • Limited range of motion
  • Numbness or tingling in the extremities

The Chiropractic Impact Report

I can’t speak highly enough of Dr. Mark Cafagna and his practice. I was involved in a major car accident several years before seeing him. By the time I did, I had tried physical therapy and seen another chiropractor. However, my two resulting disc herniations were so swollen that I couldn’t walk and I was losing feeling in my foot. Emotionally and mentally, I was a mess due to a lack of sleep. Dr. Mark’s de-compression table and Janette's masterful deep tissue massages essentially gave me my life back. Now, I can exercise again, work at the computer again for hours and walk away without pain, and SLEEP! I could go on and on about the entire staff but the bottom line is you have to try it for yourself to believe it. I waited a long time. I wouldn’t advise it. Thank you for helping me feel normal again Dr. Mark!
