Has your life become a wreck…literally?

Here are the most common car accident injuries (and how chiropractic care can help).

 

Every day, an estimated 12,000 people experience car accident injuries that are serious enough to require medical attention. That adds up to 4.4 million people every year!

Car accident injuries are common, but that doesn’t make them trivial. Even a minor fender bender can have serious, long-lasting effects on your health and quality of life. Some people try to “walk off” the pain or treat it with over-the-counter pain medications and just hope it goes away. Others seek medical treatment through surgery or addictive prescription drugs with nasty side effects.

But more and more people are discovering the best-kept secret for dealing with car accident injuries: chiropractic care!

In this article, we’ll talk about the five most common car accident injuries and how chiropractic care can help you on your way to healing.  

 



When it comes to car accident injuries, you can’t just “walk them off.”

Even a whiplash injury deserves quick, thorough treatment.

 

That fender bender put your car in the shop, but at least you were able to walk away from the accident. In fact, all you have is a little soreness in your neck. No big deal, right? It’ll heal on its own with a little ice and a couple of ibuprofen.

Unfortunately, whiplash has a reputation of being either a minor injury or a completely fabricated condition designed to make lawyers rich. As always, the truth lies somewhere in the middle.

Your whiplash injury might not warrant a hospital stay, but it’s a lot worse than just “a sore neck.” In this article, we’ll talk about what happens to your body during a whiplash injury, the immediate and long-term symptoms, and the best way to seek treatment.



Whiplash is a common car accident injury, but the pain can feel far from ordinary.

Whiplash is one of the most common injuries resulting from car accidents.

While your seat belt keeps your torso relatively stationary during an accident, your head and neck are not so protected. The sudden stop as you collide with another object “whips” your head and neck back and forth, stretching those muscles, tendons, and ligaments beyond what they are used to.

While the injury itself might be localized to the neck area, the pain of whiplash and other car accident injuries is certainly not confined to a single location. This can make it difficult to diagnose (and therefore, properly treat) your car accident injuries with traditional medicine.



Car accident injuries won’t get better on their own.

But a car accident chiropractor can help you heal naturally, quickly, and effectively. 

 

Should you visit your local chiropractor following an accident? An auto injury chiropractor is a professional you can rely on when you’re involved in an accident.

You may not consider the importance of getting chiropractic care, but this is an important step that could benefit your health.

This article provides five key reasons why you need to make an appointment with a car accident chiropractor.

We’ve all seen the havoc that a car accident can wreak on a vehicle. From chipped paint to complete destruction, car accidents can cause thousands of dollars in property damage. But what happens in a car accident…to your body?

You only get one body to use for your entire lifetime. In most cases, your body is able to heal itself when it gets injured. But for more serious injuries (like those sustained during a car accident), you might be left with a pain that you just can’t “walk off.”

This is because car accidents are unlike any other kind of accident you might experience. Here’s what happens in a car accident to your body and how you can start getting back to normal.

Being in a car accident, regardless of how serious it is, can make you ask yourself a lot of questions.

“Is there any way I could have prevented this? Should I be worried about my insurance rates going up? Do I need to seriously consider getting a new car?”

All of those questions are valid, but there’s one important question that a lot of people don’t know the answer to: How long should you be sore after a car accident?


For some, chiropractic offers relief from pain. For others, it's about feeling and looking good. Call today and see what chiropractic can do for you!
