Auto Accidents and Chiropractic

Treating Injuries After an Auto Accident

A car accident can cause a myriad of injuries, such as whiplash, neck pain and back pain. If you are experiencing pain after an auto accident, consider chiropractic care as a solution. This type of health treatment specializes in pain, particularly the type that is caused by car accidents.

Sometimes, the pain doesn't show up right away, so it is important to pay attention to your symptoms after an accident and to be evaluated right away. Count on Northwood Health Center to provide an evaluation and treatment to get you feeling better after your vehicle crash.

Auto Accident Injuries

There are numerous injuries that can happen during a car crash. Some, such as head trauma, require immediate medical treatment. But a chiropractor can treat the kinds of injuries that affect the spine's vertebrae, the muscles, the tendons and similar areas after the accident.

Some common types of injuries from car accidents are neck injuries, such as whiplash, and back injuries, such as herniated discs and back sprains. You are likely to experience tears in your soft tissue. These types of injury occur in an accident because the sudden collision causes sharp movements in your body.

How Can Chiropractic Care Help After an Accident?

You can often use your car insurance benefits to cover accident chiropractic care. Chiropractors use a number of treatment methods to help the body heal after a car accident.

At Northwood Health Center, we offer chiropractic adjustments that align your spine after it has been knocked out of place. This provides your body with its proper alignment, takes pressure off the nerves and encourages healing through the body's natural processes. We also offer massage for muscle pain, acupuncture to manage pain and encourage healing, rehabilitation to help your body regain strength and movement, and other treatment methods.

A study in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that chiropractic manipulation, or adjustments, improved auto accident pain when patients received the treatments periodically. Starting treatment early seemed to improve the results of chiropractic care compared to waiting. Researchers noted that this study backed up other studies that found similar results from chiropractic care.
