Frequently Asked Questions

What injuries from car accidents do you commonly treat?

Whiplash is one of the auto accident injuries treated most frequently at our clinic. Whiplash often happens during car accidents, resulting in damage to the soft tissues surrounding the spine. The primary symptoms are typically neck pain and stiffness, often surfacing a day or two after the accident. Additionally, auto accidents commonly lead to herniated and slipped discs. In these cases, the impact forces one or more fluid-filled discs between the vertebrae out of their original position. Chiropractic care can also be a helpful remedy for these injuries.

How can chiropractic care help with injuries sustained in auto accidents?

 Chiropractic care can be an excellent choice for managing car accident injuries like whiplash and herniated or bulging discs. Chiropractic techniques avoid use of drugs, and are non-invasive and gentle in nature. Chiropractic care provides a holistic approach to recovery without the need for taking medication.

What if I only feel a little bit of pain after a car accident?

 Even if your discomfort seems manageable, undergoing a comprehensive chiropractic evaluation is a wise decision. Many injuries, including whiplash, may not cause severe pain immediately, with chronic discomfort sometimes emerging weeks later. Scheduling a diagnostic exam shortly after your accident is best to allow for effective management of your injuries.

Do I need to go to the emergency room after an auto accident?

If you are bleeding or experiencing severe pain, seek immediate attention at the emergency room. However, it’s advisable to follow up with us even after an ER visit. Often, misaligned spinal bones are overlooked in emergency care, as they may not be a primary focus. Our specialized attention can address these issues that might have been missed during the ER assessment, providing you with the best care.
