Auto Accidents

Recovering from a car accident goes beyond auto repairs and insurance claims — it's also about treating injuries and pain that may arise after the incident. In the aftermath of an auto accident, it's common to experience severe pain and immobility in your neck, joints, and back. So if you've recently been in a car accident, chiropractic care is what you need. Chiropractors are professionals that have plenty of experience in helping people recover from injuries caused by car accidents, providing all-natural adjustments that help loosen stiff muscles and joints — and improve range of motion. 

 

Common Auto Accident Injuries

Whiplash is the most common auto accident injury. It refers to the impact that causes your head to jerk back and forth while in motion. This excess force can stretch your neck muscles, ligaments, or tendons beyond their standard range — causing extreme pain and tightness. If left untreated, whiplash can cause other symptoms like memory loss. However, besides whiplash, here are other common injuries caused by car accidents: 

  • Head injuries
  • Fractured ribs
  • Hemorrhage
  • Herniated discs 

After the car accident, though your soft tissues may start to self-heal, if your spine isn't aligned correctly before the scar tissues set in, it can permanently affect your normal range of motion. 

 

How Can Chiropractic Care Treat Auto Accident Injuries?

During auto collisions, the spine will be severely affected due to the violent back and forth motion caused by the car accident, ultimately leading to an abnormal S-shape. Chiropractic care can help by allowing your body to heal itself, successfully treating the root cause of your pain and discomfort — offering a permanent solution. In addition, adjustments can realign your cervical spine, taking the pressure off the damaged nerves, bringing fast and efficient relief. 

Overall, even if you don't notice any immediate symptoms after getting into a car accident, it's best to see an experienced chiropractor immediately. 

 

Chiropractic Care Can Bring Long-Term Relief

Victims of auto accidents often experience mild to moderate injuries like whiplash that'll recover within weeks. However, severe injuries may have long-lasting effects that can affect your health, range of motion, and general daily life months — or even years later. It can be challenging to predict when an acute injury will turn chronic, so it's wise to visit a chiropractor at The Glen Chiropractic and Acupuncture after a car accident just in case.

If you are involved in an accident, most auto insurance plans cover 100% of chiropractic treatment and therapies regardless of fault.
It is illegal for the insurance company to raise costs if someone hit you. It is your right to make a claim and receive care.
If being treated for injury, you are reimbursed by your insurance company for missed work and travel for treatment.
Even if you feel okay at first, symptoms may not show up for days, weeks, or even months.
Even low impact auto accidents of 5 mph can cause spinal misalignment and soft tissue damage. That is why it’s crucial to have your spine checked and evaluated after and accident, even if you don’t feel pain.
Low impact auto accidents (between 5 and 15 miles and hour cause the highest number of whiplash injuries. Many vehicles absorb forces at this speed and may not show sign of damage. Do not be fooled by little or no damage to your car, YOU MUST GET CHECKED OUT.
