Auto Accident Care

man in car accidentEven a minor fender bender can produce spinal misalignment and whiplash. It may take a day or two or even months for symptoms to appear. The longer you wait to be evaluated and examined after an auto accident or personal injury, the more hidden damage can accumulate. It can also take substantially longer to recover, and leave you vulnerable to the long-term effects of untreated whiplash like:

  • Arthritis
  • Chronic pain patterns
  • Joint immobility
  • Muscle imbalances
  • Posture problems

What happens to the spine during a car accident?

The impact of a crash usually causes the head and neck to jerk forward and backward. The sudden force creates spinal misalignment in the neck and microscopic tearing of attached muscles and ligaments. Because the neck is one of the most nerve-rich areas of your spine, problems here can create problems throughout the body.

Why is it important to seek chiropractic treatment for these injuries?

Chiropractic care is invaluable in creating and maintaining spinal correction and healing. This is accomplished through a thorough understanding of spinal biomechanics and successful rehabilitation strategies. A whopping 50% of auto accident victims experience some form of chronic pain from the day of their accident forward, which is why it’s so vital to be checked as soon as possible.

Chiropractic care combined with massage therapy has been shown to produce the highest levels of successful rehabilitation. Our treatment protocols are designed to align with the three stages of healing:

  • Initial Phase (the reduction of inflammation)
  • Rehabilitation Phase (the introduction of tissue remodeling)
  • Strengthening Phase (the return to normal activities of daily living)
