Sure, a massage feels incredibly relaxing…

…but is it a good car accident treatment?

 

Anyone who has been involved in a car accident can tell you that they are no joke.

Even if you manage to avoid a serious medical condition (such as a traumatic brain injury or broken limb), a vehicle accident can leave you in a lot of pain. But before you seek medical attention through physical therapy or painkillers, there’s another car accident treatment you should try.

A combination of chiropractic care and medical massage can be extremely effective at treating your pain at the source, allowing your body to truly heal from the inside out.



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 a personal injury chiropractor following an accident? An auto accident chiropractor is a professional you can rely on when you’re involved in a car 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 you need to make an appointment with a car accident chiropractor.

Typical Car Accident Settlement Amounts for Whiplash and Concussion

While chiropractors are best known for treating bad backs, one of the most common reasons people see a chiropractor is actually after they’ve been in a car accident.

And some of the most common injuries people suffer in a car accident are whiplash and concussion. These can seem like minor injuries because sometimes, the symptoms won’t even present themselves for a few days or even weeks. But all back and neck injuries can have long-lasting effects, which typically means medical treatment (along with some high costs).

If you’ve been injured in a car accident, it isn’t just the pain and discomfort you need to worry about. In some cases, figuring out how to pay for your medical bills and lost wages can be the most difficult part.

If you carry the right car insurance coverage, you should be able to file a claim to be compensated for your injuries. And more often than not, that compensation comes by a settlement offer from your insurance company.

Settlements vary from company to company and case to case, but if you’re like most people, you want to have a good idea of what to expect.

In this article, we’ll discuss the average settlement for whiplash and concussion and which medical treatment options are available to you.

Chiropractic care can be used to treat numerous physical ailments, and one of the most common ailments it is used to treat is whiplash.

Whiplash is an injury to the neck that often occurs as a result of a sudden, unexpected jerk or snap of the neck. It typically results from car crashes, contact sports, roller coaster rides, and other physical activities where there is rapid neck movement in one direction or another.

It produces a tremendous strain on the muscles, ligaments, and joints of the neck, resulting in pain and soreness throughout this area of the body that could last anywhere between a few days to several months. Other symptoms include restricted movement, headaches, trouble sleeping, and dizziness.

Fortunately, a chiropractor can provide relief from whiplash. Through tailored adjustments, you’ll not only start seeing improved mobility, but also decrease many painful symptoms associated with your injury.
