Chiropractic Treatment After a Car Accident

Injuries to the neck and back are common injuries sustained during car accidents. Whiplash, a soft-tissue injury, is the result of the body moving back and then forward beyond its normal limits. Micro-tears can develop in the surrounding ligaments. Once symptoms set in, victims may experience:

  • Neck pain

  • Reduced range of motion in the neck

  • Headaches

  • Dizziness

  • Shoulder pain

  • Low back pain

  • & more...

Without proper treatment, some soft tissue injuries can cause discomfort for years.

How Chiropractic Treatment Helps

Chiropractors can help restore mobility, relieve pain, and support long-term healing—drug-free. Visiting a chiropractor as soon as possible after a motor vehicle accident can improve your chances of making a full recovery without the risk of being addicted to prescription pain medicines.

Five Facts You Need to Know After a Car Accident

  1. Your injury can become permanent if not treated within weeks of the accident occurring.

  2. Symptoms can take six to eight weeks to exhibit—never base your injury on symptoms.

  3. You can void or limit your ability to get treatment if you talk to insurance agents about the accident, sign paperwork, and cash checks from the insurance company.

  4. If you need to pursue legal action, we can help in your selection of a qualified attorney.

  5. Document everything. Be sure to take pictures of the accident scene, if possible, and physical injuries such as cuts and bruises. Working with Breaking Free Chiropractic, we can ensure all medical treatment records are in order.
