That’s why we encourage you to contact Dudum Chiropractic as soon as possible following your accident. We are the motor vehicle accident experts in Walnut Creek.

What to Expect

The first step is coming in for a complimentary consultation. We have state-of-the-art X-rays to verify the severity of the accident. You’ll be informed as to whether you’re capable of being treated in our office. X-rays will help diagnose whiplash, pain or other chronic conditions related to the auto accident.

Treatments We May Use

Our game plan for treatment includes various types of chiropractic techniques. Rest assured that our care is gentle yet highly effective. We have an arsenal of services to help you get out of pain and on the path to recovering. Depending on your case, one or more of the following may be recommended:

  • Chiropractic care
  • Muscle stim
  • Myofascial release
  • Stretching
  • Massage therapy

You’re in Great Hands

In addition to providing excellent care at our office, we can offer administrative support. We can walk you through the documentation that’s required to help you determine how insurance works and what provider might be best for you.

We also have a team of lawyers as well as other healthcare providers outside our office that we can refer you to.


What are some common auto accident injuries that you treat?

Whiplash is one of the most common injuries we see at our clinic. This type of injury occurs when the soft tissues surrounding the spine get damaged. This damage is usually due to the spine being thrust forward at the time of impact. Neck pain and stiffness, some of the most common symptoms of whiplash, often don’t occur until a day or two following the accident.

Herniated and slipped discs also occur frequently as a result of car accidents. With this type of injury, one or more of the fluid-filled discs located between the vertebrae become forced out of place due to the impact of the accident. Disc injuries can be incredibly painful, often resulting in sharp pain along the spinal column.

How does chiropractic care address auto accident injuries?

Chiropractic care is the optimal way to address auto accident injuries such as whiplash and herniated/bulging discs. That’s because these chiropractic techniques are natural, non-invasive and gentle.

What if I’m just experiencing minor pain?

Even if you feel that your pain isn’t too bad, it is still a good idea to get a comprehensive chiropractic evaluation. Many musculoskeletal injuries such as whiplash do not cause severe pain right away. It may be several weeks before chronic pain develops. Coming in for a diagnostic exam as soon as possible after your accident will ensure your injuries are fully diagnosed and treated.

Can I use car insurance claims settlements to pay for services at your office?

If you get a car insurance settlement as a result of your injuries, we can accept this as a form of payment for your chiropractic care. We also are happy to accept most health insurance plans.
