Auto Accident Injury Q & A

What common auto accident injuries can chiropractic care address?

Chiropractic care can effectively treat a range of auto accident injuries, including:

  • Whiplash
  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Muscle strains
  • Spinal misalignments

Auto accident injuries can also lead to persistent headaches. Chiropractic care can treat the source of your headache pain so you get relief. 

How soon after an auto accident should I seek chiropractic care?

Seek chiropractic care as soon as possible after an auto accident, even if you're not experiencing immediate pain or symptoms. 

Many injuries, such as whiplash, may not show signs or symptoms until days or weeks later. Early evaluation and treatment can prevent long-term complications and promote faster recovery.

What happens when I come to a chiropractic appointment for an auto accident injury?

During your initial consultation, the Atkins Chiropractic team conducts a comprehensive evaluation. That may include a review of your medical history, a physical examination, orthopedic and neurological tests, and diagnostic imaging, such as X-rays or MRI scans. 

Based on the findings from these assessments, the chiropractic team creates a personalized treatment plan to address your specific needs and injuries.

What techniques do chiropractors use to treat auto accident injuries?

The Atkins Chiropractic team uses a variety of techniques to treat auto accident injuries. These include:

  • Gentle spinal adjustments
  • Spinal decompression therapy
  • Soft tissue manipulation
  • Cold laser therapy
  • Therapeutic exercises
  • Electrical stimulation

The strategies used in your case depend on the nature and severity of your injuries.

Is chiropractic care a safe way to treat auto accident injuries?

Chiropractic care is safe and effective for treating auto accident injuries when administered by a licensed and experienced chiropractor, like those at Atkins Chiropractic. Chiropractors undergo extensive training and adhere to strict safety protocols to ensure your well-being.

Does chiropractic care speed my recovery from auto accident injuries?

How long it takes you to recover from auto accident injuries depends on the severity of the injuries, your personal healing timeline, and how well you adhere to the treatment plan. 

You may experience significant relief after a few sessions or require more time for complete recovery. The team monitors your progress and adjusts the treatment plan as needed to ensure optimal healing.
