Auto Accident Injury

Whiplash injuries from car accidents can cause spinal injury resulting in neck & back pain. Chiropractic care helps avoid serious injury after an accident.

In the event of a car accident, it is imperative to seek medical treatment immediately after the accident. Any injury caused by a car accident should be taken seriously. Not all of these symptoms occur instantly, and you may not become aware of the severity of your injury until the inflammation has subsided. In some cases, victims of car accidents may experience symptoms weeks later. Talk to your doctor about these silent threats. 

 

More than three million people are injured in road accidents in this country every year. Some types of injuries are more common than others. The injuries resulting from a car accident can be different for every individual and the varying circumstances of the collision. Some injuries from car accidents can resolve themselves within days of medical treatment, while some will take longer.

 

Treatment

Chiropractic treatment for auto-injuries is one of the most effective methods to treat these symptoms of auto accidents as it supports the body's natural healing process and promotes long-term relief. 

 

If you have been involved in a serious accident and have suffered damage to the musculoskeletal system, chiropractic care can make a significant difference. When an accident is considered a minor one, it is unlikely that accident victims will seek treatment as they are unaware that it can lead to lifelong health problems if left untreated. 

 

If your cervical spine is forced out of alignment, you are likely to suffer serious damage to your bones and your musculoskeletal system. Manual and physical therapies, including corrective exercises, to help restore your body to full recovery. It is important to have a medical check-up - and do it immediately, within a few days of a car accident. Even if you may not be in pain at the moment, the sooner you see your doctor and determine the status of your condition, the quicker you can recover, and the lesser the risk of worsening your condition.

 

Why Natural Care Chiropractic?

We have a long history of treating accident victims and a strong track record of providing effective treatment. Traditional post-car care relies on medications that cover up the patient's pain and symptoms. Prescription painkillers, while providing immediate pain relief, are not a long-term solution to pain management. 

 

Medication alone cannot help patients to recover their mobility and structure after a back injury. With the proper diagnostic care, your chiropractor can identify the underlying damage and develop a tailored treatment program that supports the natural healing process in your body.
