Auto Accident Care

neck pain in carHeadaches, whiplash, neck pain, stiffness and soreness. If you’ve been involved in an auto accident, you’re likely feeling one or more of these. After the shock of a car accident, dealing with sustained injuries can be daunting.

These injuries often cause muscle strain and joint restriction, limiting mobility and pain. This is particularly the case for neck and spine injuries due to the sudden jarring motion experienced even in low-speed accidents, which can result in conditions such as whiplash.

What Is Whiplash?

Whiplash occurs when your head and neck are jolted forward and then backward in a car accident, causing significant muscle strain and joint restriction. Many people think that whiplash only occurs if you’re traveling at a high speed. Not true! Even a low-speed parking lot fender-bender can lead to this condition.

Why You Should Seek Chiropractic Care

It’s important to seek chiropractic care to accelerate your recovery time and get you back to your normal activities pain-free as soon as possible. Seeking prompt treatment following an auto accident can also help prevent chronic issues that may develop over time, such as prolonged pain, limited mobility, and even arthritis and degeneration.

What to Expect

Preparing for your first visit with us is straightforward. Just bring your insurance information (we bill insurance directly), photo ID, and any paperwork related to the accident. The initial appointment generally lasts 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the extent of your injuries.

Your chiropractor will perform a physical exam, take X-rays if necessary, and conduct different tests, including range of motion, orthopedic, and neurological (as needed).

Recovery: What to Expect

Many people naturally want to know how long it will take to recover from their injuries completely. The time frame varies greatly based on the severity of the accident and the individual’s pre-accident health condition. However, you should see substantial improvement within three weeks of regular chiropractic visits.
