Adamo Chiropractic Center has done it again! We are proud to announce that due to the many glowing reviews from our patients that we have helped on their path to wellness and recovery, our chiropractor in El Cajon has received the 2015 Opencare Patient’s Choice Award.

- Shoulder pain or stiffness

- Low back pain
- Sensitivity to noise
- Difficulty concentrating
- Blurred vision
- Difficulty swallowing
- Ringing in the ears
- Dizziness or vertigo
A study comparing gender in whiplash injuries concluded: “This population is more likely to be injured under whiplash loading”. Women are also more likely to suffer chronic (long lasting) symptoms from such accidents even with low-speed impacts. A study found that once injured, women are between 2 to 2.3 times more likely than men to have chronic symptoms.
