How We Help

Even if you don’t feel any pain right after the accident, injuries can still be present. You might feel fine at first, thanks to an adrenaline rush, but ignoring problems now may lead to chronic issues. Even mild symptoms may be evidence of underlying problems that need to be addressed. Chiropractic is one of the only specialties specifically designed to address your injury or trauma site. Permanent injuries may occur in crashes that surgery cannot correct.

In almost every auto accident, there’s a whiplash injury. As a result of the sudden stop, the head is jerked forward and back, often slamming into the headrest. The force generated is significantly more than you would experience in a slip and fall or a sports injury.

After the crash, joints may become unstable, and ligaments can be overstretched. This ligament laxity may lead to increased arthritis, more scar tissue, and more neurological damage, if not treated soon after the accident.

We treat the acute problems the patient is having as a result of the accident—pain, inflammation, and more, but also ensure the injured areas are healed as well as possible to minimize problems later in life.

The most common injury in auto accidents is whiplash, but other probable injuries include headaches, concussions, low and mid back pain, and tingling in the hands and feet.
