Auto Injury

Car accidents are a leading cause of injuries. In fact, a recent study reported that six million is the average number of car accidents that occur in the U.S. every year. At Personal Care Chiropractic & Massage, we understand that you are more likely to worry about the expense of your vehicle if an auto accident were to happen to you, but we would like to present the facts as to why your body and overall health should be a top priority.

One of the most common injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident is the damaging effect of whiplash. Whiplash occurs when a sudden, jarring movement of the head is sustained backward, forward, or even to the side. Whiplash destabilizes the spine and causes severe pain, as well as blurred vision, neck pain, headaches, and reduced range of motion in the neck. It is critical that chiropractic care is sought immediately after sustaining an injury, because whiplash can take days, weeks, or even months for these major symptoms to arise. Since chiropractors such as Dr. Nicholas Stamoulos , specialize in the care of bones, muscles, nerves, and connective tissue, it is important to schedule a consultation to keep these body parts in optimal health.

Chiropractic treatment after an auto accident is a step in the right direction in restoring the body. Depending on the severity of the case, Dr. Nicholas Stamoulos  may make necessary adjustments to align your spine and may suggest massage or other therapeutic techniques. The earlier the issue is detected, the earlier it can be treated, so don’t wait and give us a call today.

Chiropractic Adjustments

If you are seeking relief from back or joint pain, a chiropractic adjustment, also known as spinal manipulation is a safe and effective alternative treatment method that we utilize here at Personal Care Chiropractic & Massage. A chiropractic adjustment refers to applying manipulation to the vertebrae that have abnormal movement patterns or fail to function normally. Since the adjustment technique varies by location of discomfort, it is best to schedule a consultation first.

Spinal manipulation is suitable for conditions such as acute low back pain caused by daily activities, or neck pain, headaches, and osteoarthritis. The objective of this treatment method is to reduce the subluxation, while increasing range of motion, reducing nerve irritability, and improving overall function. No special preparation is required before a chiropractic adjustment and depending on the individualized treatment plan Dr. Nicholas Stamoulos  provides for you, chiropractic treatment may require a series of visits to our office.

If you think you may benefit from a chiropractic adjustment, please give us a call. To learn about services we provide at our practice, visit for more information. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Nicholas Stamoulos at Personal Care Chiropractic & Massage in Arlington, MA, call 781-641-4482.
