Benefits of Seeing a Chiropractor after an Auto Accident

Chiropractic care is super beneficial for those who’ve been in an auto accident. We’re able to treat the most common injuries, including whiplash and other soft tissue injuries, neck pain, back pain, headaches, and most spinal injuries. We also can give you a heads up on symptoms to look out for that take time to manifest.

One of the best reasons to come see us after an auto accident is the advantage chiropractors have over x-ray machines when it comes to spotting injury. X-rays can’t pick up on soft tissue injuries or inflammation. Instead of forking over money for an MRI (unless we believe it’s in your best interest after an evaluation), we’ll perform a thorough checkup. Finding and treating injuries as soon as possible saves you from long term pain and more medical bills.

And when injury is obvious, chiropractic care is proven effective at reducing pain, inflammation and healing time, along with helping prevent long term complications. 

This study and this study confirmed that chiropractic care helped patients recover from whiplash injury. This 2020 study is one of many that confirmed that chiropractic care helps patients recover from concussion. And countless studies show that chiropractic care helps manage pain from musculoskeletal injuries and helps the body heal itself.
