What Is an Auto Accident Injury?

- Dislocated bones
All of these injuries can be incredibly difficult to recover from, so it's best to get the help of a chiropractor as soon as possible.
How a Chiropractor Can Help
Our chiropractor will be able to determine the extent of your injuries following a car accident. We will conduct a physical exam in addition to test such as x-rays, to get an inside look into your musculoskeletal system. Our chiropractor will get to the root cause of your pain and prescribe the best chiropractic treatment.
- massages to increase circulation and promote healing
- Strengthening exercises to strengthen injured muscles while promoting mobility and flexibility
- Spinal decompression to help alleviate pain from herniated discs after an accident
- Spinal adjustments to realign the spine, which can become misaligned after an accident
- Trigger point therapy to target specific soft tissue injuries
Rather than masking your pain with prescription medication or performing invasive surgery, our chiropractor will identify and treat the root cause of your pain and immobility. Treatment recommendations will depend on the type, location, and severity of your injuries.
