Auto Accident Chiropractor
Car Accident Injury Treatment from Your San Diego Chiropractor
Thousands of San Diego drivers suffer the pain and injury that comes with car accidents every year. Whiplash, the most common auto accident injury, can develop after crashes at speeds as low as 5 mph. You may walk away from an accident thinking you weren’t injured, but pain from low-speed injuries sometimes doesn’t manifest for hours or even days afterward. By that time, the muscle, nerve, tendon, ligament and bone damage has actually worsened. Lasting healing and relief, even for a seemingly minor injury, depends on you getting a prompt examination from a car accident injury specialist like chiropractor Dr. Herfindahl.
Auto Accident and Whiplash Pain Relief Through Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care is extremely effective for treating car accident injury pain because it goes straight to the source of the problem. In the case of whiplash, the sudden force and motion of the impact, combined with the weight of your head whipping back and forth, over-extends soft tissues and causes neck vertebrae to grate against nerves. Over the next few hours or days after the auto accident, you may notice symptoms like:
Even if you don’t immediately feel these symptoms, schedule an appointment with our chiropractor for a comprehensive, post-auto accident checkup so he can quickly treat any injury before it worsens.

I found Dr. Herfindahl on Groupon. I liked his services that were listed and he was close to my work. I have seen several chiropractors in the last 10 years, because of my many conditions of the skeletal / nerve and muscle symptoms. When I met with the Doc, he took his time in my evaluation. Then he listened to me talk about my pain. During the 8 weeks session, at twice a week, each time the Doc would ask about my day and how I was feeling and checking my progress. It’s so refreshing to have a Doc take the time and ask about how you are and not make you feel like you’re in an assembly line waiting to get cracked…lol… I have made tremendous progress with the Doc, sometimes I feel like I don’t need to go anymore, but I know that I will always need the Doc… to help keep me in alignment and my skeletal/nerve and muscles in perfect harmony that keeps me pain free … I would rather have Dr. Herfindahl than a physician who only wants to numb my pain with prescription pills., which I feel only causes more issues down the line. From the first day that I walked in the door, those girls up front didn’t make me feel like a new patient…I felt right at home. -Pamela Bishop, Hensel Phelps Const Co. –
Originally, I saw Dr. Herfindahl two years ago for what I thought was a monthly tune-up. There were not any major problems. A tight neck or shoulders or back every so often. I am learning at age 73 to listen to my body and to follow the directions. What impressed me about Dr. Herfindahl was the way he educates the patient. It was my first time seeing not only various x-rays of my body but also having them explained in detail. Then Dr. Herfindahl took other tests of my bone structure, that gave me a print out, so that I could see what was happening in my body. The staff is professional, joyful, and express a sense of humor. A pleasant disposition is important for me to experience when I go to a doctor office. Now I share with whoever will listen. If you want an excellent education of “your” body, pay the $49 and wow! Then decide if you choose to continue with Dr. Herfindahl as your chiropractor. In Gratitude, – Merlene Bukovich
I have been seeing Dr. Herfindahl since November 2021. I originally came in due to back pain that I had been experiencing for the past 4 years making it difficult for me to do all the things I loved and hard to keep up with my daughter.
I was making great strides in recovering but then I was involved in a car accident in January. Luckily, I saw Dr. Herfindahl the day after my accident which helped me recovery be a lot quicker. I was back to all my activities within two months! I know if I was not seeing Dr. Herfindahl I may still be feeling the effects of my accident.
I can now work out again without the worry of throwing my back out and I can keep up with my active daughter.
My fiancé now sees Dr. Herfindahl and I’m seeing great strides in his recovery for back issues as well.
I highly recommend anyone who is looking for a great chiropractor to come in and see Dr. Herfindahl. Plus, all the wonderful ladies who work with the Dr. are amazing and will make you feel like you’re part of the family on your first day.

My grandson, who is 13, and his other grandmother had been seeing Dr. Herfindahl on a regular basis, with amazing results. In desperation (I’ve always been a bit leery about chiropractors in general), I made an appointment.
What a shock that first appointment was! I couldn’t believe the kindness of the staff. The thoroughness of the exam, and the detailed questions I was asked by Dr. Herfindahl. He truly listened, took copious notes…he was like a detective determined to solve a puzzling mystery. I was so overwhelmed by this first visit that I found myself in tears on the way home. For the first time, I felt like there was hope.
I can truly say that, beginning with my first treatment, I noticed a marked improvement. It only lasted a few hours initially, but every visit provided more relief with longer lasting results. After 4-5 weeks, I stopped using the cane. And now – 3 1/2 months later, my hip feels strong and totally pain free! It’s amazing!
I plan to continue seeing Dr. Herfindahl to maintain this new level of health. I also plan to continue because I can’t imagine missing out on Liz’s upbeat, humorous enthusiasm, or Kyla’s amazing massages.
I am grateful, beyond words, for Dr. Herfindahl and his amazing staff.
