Auto Injury Chiropractor

Chiropractic Care is probably the most famous and effective treatment for those who are recovering car accident injuries.

Due to the rapid motion caused by your head going forward, back, and then forward again due to your seat belt restraining you, it is common to experience whiplash or other strains or sprains to your neck and back. Chiropractic care is a fantastic treatment option for injuries involving your musculoskeletal system or soft tissues.

Auto Accident Symptoms include:

  • Neck pain
  • Neck stiffness
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Back Pain
  • Limited Mobility
  • Headaches
  • Joint Pain
  • Muscle Spasms
  • Chest Pain
  • Rib Pain
  • Insomnia
  • Poor Range of Motion

Chiropractic treatment following a car accident may include ice packs, massage, stretches, and exercise, in addition to, an adjustment. Treatments depend on the severity of your auto accident injuries and how you are feeling. We want you to feel better and get back on your feet as quickly as possible.

At Genesis Chiropractic, we are committed to helping our clients resume their pursuit of health, well-being, and a pain-free lifestyle. Book your appointment today.

How does a chiropractor treat car accident injuries?

Once it has been confirmed that your injuries are limited to soft tissue and/or misalignment from your accident, you will go through some very gentle treatments first before a full adjustment is attempted. Your treatment might ultimately include massage and even physical therapy to recover.

If we do not feel that you are progressing as you should, they will not hesitate to refer you to a specialist, such as a neurologist or an orthopedist, to help you heal from your injuries.

Car Accident Injury Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely not. We recommend that following your accident that you go to the ER or your doctor’s office to get checked out. It is a good idea to have x-rays and an examination to make sure that your injuries are not more serious. Always go to your doctor first to rule out fractures, internal bleeding or any other serious injuries before you consult your chiropractor.

For the first few days following your car accident, you are going to be quite sore. You might not even feel much discomfort the first day. While ultimately the adjustments will feel good, those first days while you are still in the early stages of your injury might be uncomfortable.

Not always. Sometimes it is necessary to get the inflammation and swelling down before your chiropractor will attempt an adjustment. Each case is different. Sometimes a gentle examination and ice packs are all that should be done until the swelling goes down a little bit.

The purpose of chiropractic treatment is to balance your system and make you feel better. It is not supposed to cause pain.
