Many of our patients come to us after being in a car accident. Even if you don’t feel injured or have any visible problems after a vehicle collision, your body can still be suffering. Your chiropractor can help diagnose any injuries after an accident. Many times the pain or injury will not surface until days or even weeks after the accident.
Getting Chiropractic care right away can prevent this from happening and help you to recover quicker. The most common injury is whiplash or other neck injuries. Even a minor accident can cause these types of injuries.
When you are in an accident, your body absorbs the force of the crash causing your head and neck to go forward. Back injuries and spine injuries are also very common. Injuries can often appear and ache many years later.
Some of the symptoms from auto accidents that can be treated with Chiropractic care includes headaches, neck pain, back pain, stiffness, muscle aches, arthritis, and many more.
We recommend seeking care as soon as possible after a car accident to begin recovery.
