You’ve experienced a motor vehicle accident.

Most motor vehicle accidents whip our heads backward and forward so quickly we don’t even know it happened. Then, we start to feel the pain and dysfunction. This pain can come immediately or sometimes days even weeks later. An accident stretches, tears and injures your body– your head, neck, back, and soft tissue systems. A Chiropractor can restore function to a more normal state after an accident. If after your accident all you take is medication, you aren’t treating the problem, only the symptom. If you try and stop your medication you may actually feel worse. Uncorrected whiplash can result in your body trying to adapt to an unbalanced and misaligned spine and neck, so you begin to feel the pain and impairment in other areas of your body, even arthritic degeneration can begin to set in.

Now what?

Like most victims, you went to a Medical Doctor or a hospital after your accident. They may have helped you with your immediate emergency pain, but you still feel pain and you worry about the impact the accident now has on your daily life, your job and your family. Getting well again means recovering the life you enjoyed before your accident. We all desire to feel full of energy and capable of doing whatever we want, but your accident may have changed your normal activities. You do not have to accept those impairments and limitations without getting the best help possible.

Why a chiropractor?

Medical Doctors are trained to handle emergency care, diagnose diseases and prescribe medicine. They may lack the training and skills to assess and treat persistent damage left from a motor vehicle accident. Motor vehicle accidents can inflict huge impacts and injury on your joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, soft tissue, neck and back. MDs often prescribe medications to cover the pain, none of which addresses the pain you are feeling in your body’s structures caused by the accident.

Chiropractors are the only doctors licensed to diagnose, adjust, treat joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, soft tissue systems, necks, backs and spinal misalignments such as those caused by the massive forces created in a motor vehicle accident. Chiropractors understand how these misalignments to the normal biomechanics of the body can impinge on your nerves and blood flow causing pain and restricting your daily comfort and normal functions. Chiropractic services can complement the treatment provided by your MD.

Why do I hurt so much?

You hurt because the auto accident you had shot massive forces into your body. You absorbed an immense amount of force when the vehicles crashed into each other. Your body is much like your crunched car; it can neither function fully or normally with its structure jolted and wrenched out of place. Not only did this abrupt movement of the accident knock the spine out of alignment, but it also strains the neck and back muscles, causing further stiffness, soreness, and pain.

Symptoms

If you or someone else you know has been treated in an emergency room for an accident and still has the following:

  • Sore muscles
  • Headaches
  • Taking medication
  • Suffer from anxiety 
  • Difficult time moving your body
  • Feel fatigue, low energy
  • Suffer backache, neck pain
  • Cannot stand up straight
  • Difficulty walking or moving your legs/arms 
  • Feel stiff
  • Lack of strength
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Lost normal activities and function to every day life

Then you may need a chiropractor.

How will I pay for my care?

What’s Whiplash?

Whiplash is when the head is suddenly jerked back and forth beyond its normal limits, the muscles and ligaments supporting the head and spine can be stretched or torn. The discs between the spinal bones can bulge, tear or rupture. Vertebrae can be forced out of their normal position, reducing range of motion. Whiplash can be caused by a collision that occurs during a sporting event, slip and fall or automobile accident. The resulting instability of the spine and soft tissue can contribute to headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, pain in the shoulders, arms and hands, reduced ability to turn and bend, neck and low back pain. Symptoms may not appear for weeks or even months later.

Treatments:

  • Cervical Traction Unit
  • Perform a spinal manipulation (adjustment) to improve spinal function and to alleviate irritation of the central nervous system.
  • Perform 1 or more chiropractic therapies.
  • Provide nutritional advice as well as exercise and stretching information.
