Treat Injuries Caused in Auto Accidents
Pain from an auto accident can linger for years if not properly treated and corrected. Almost all Americans get involved in at least one motor vehicle accident at some point in their lives. Often, we are able to walk away thinking we’re free from injury. Little known symptoms can turn into big problems in the future if not treated and corrected.
Injuries resulting from auto accidents are seldom diagnosed correctly. Most often, the symptoms associated with an auto accident type injury may not be present at the time of the accident. It may be several hours or even days after the accident occurs before the symptoms become apparent. Evaluation at the emergency room often focuses strictly on ruling out broken bones or dislocations, leaving underlying soft tissue injuries or mechanical joint abnormalities undiagnosed and untreated.
In most cases, there is insurance that will cover the costs associated with examinations, treatment, and diagnostic testing. The at-fault insurance, personal injury protection, and Medpay are all insurances to be considered for the resulting injuries. We also accept patients whose cases are represented by an attorney.

One moment everything may seem fine, when suddenly you’re involved in a serious collision. Most people have one thing on their mind after a car accident--their car! However, it’s important to remember that you and your injuries come first. A visit to a chiropractor should always follow an auto injury, as chiropractors are specialists in damage to soft and hard tissue.
How Can a Chiropractor Help Me After My Auto Accident?
Chiropractors are able to treat neck and back injuries associated with auto accidents. Many times, individuals who have been injured in a car accident experience such intense muscle pain and stiffness that they simply cannot function normally. When left untreated, this discomfort can be a serious issue.
After an auto accident, some individuals experience indicators of whiplash injuries right away, such as blurred vision, headaches, shoulder pain, dizziness, reduced range of motion and arm pain. Whiplash can also result in minor back injuries, muscle injuries, ligament problems, and disc damage. Other individuals may be injured and feel nothing at all.
Treating pain or whiplash should never be secondary to bringing your car at the mechanic or working with your insurance company. If you’ve had an auto accident recently, your first priority should be taking the initiative to visit your chiropractor!
