Auto Accidents

Car accidents can be traumatic and overwhelming, not only because of any physical injuries sustained, but also because of the emotional and mental toll. An accident’s impact isn’t limited to damages to your car; it often results in injuries, especially in the neck and shoulder area, which can lead to ongoing pain and discomfort.

While your insurance company, attorney, and mechanic might be the first people you decide to call after you’ve been in an accident, a chiropractor should be at the top of your list as well. 

Seeing a chiropractor after a car accident can help alleviate lingering symptoms. It can also help with the overall healing and recovery process.

Why you should see a Chiropractor after an Auto Accident:

In addition to cuts, bruises, and fractures, a car accident can result in other injuries that are not visible to the naked eye, such as whiplash. If left untreated, such issues can lead to muscle pain, back pain, numbness, discomfort, and more. These symptoms usually develop within a few days of the auto accident. 

Treatments Available after an Auto Accident:

  • Cervical Adjustment

  • Spinal and Cervical Decompression
