Injured in an Auto Accident?

Auto Injury Treatment

My Story
On January 22, 1999, my life changed forever.  I was a passenger in a crash that killed two of my friends and left me badly injured.  I will forever be grateful to the medical doctors who saved my life that night, but I would not be where I am today without chiropractic.  Every month I have new patients who come into my office and suffer from pain that started with an auto accident years prior.  Unlike myself, they did not receive quality Chiropractic care and have suffered the consequences.  This is the top reason I am passionate about serving people who have been injured from an auto accident.  You do not have to suffer.  You deserve quality Chiropractic care!

Auto Injuries

Auto accidents, no matter how minor, can cause serious damage to your body through spinal misalignments. This condition, known as subluxation, distorts your structure and irritates nerves, bones and ligaments affecting your overall health. Because of this, getting checked by a chiropractor is essential to make sure you are free of spinal abnormalities. Additionally, only a chiropractor is trained to examine your spine for the vertebral subluxation complex. In case of a medical emergency seek immediate medical treatment. The medical profession specializes in trauma such as this. After these have been ruled out, Chiropractic can be an integral part of your healing process. These potentially life-threatening injuries can include, but are not limited to:

  • Bleeding or hemorrhaging
  • Internal organ damage
  • Serious contusions
  • Abrasions
  • Stoppage of breath
  • Broken bones

Our practice commonly sees patients that suffer from long-term damage to the spine and head caused from auto accidents. Many of these patients felt minor aches and pains after the auto accident that progressively worsened with time and activity. Just remember, there is no such thing as a minor concussion just as there is no such thing as minor auto accident. Sometimes accidents at speeds of 10 miles per hour or less can cause devastating long-term pain if not addressed appropriately.

Whiplash

Nearly one-third of auto accidents caused by rear end collisions cause a whiplash injury. Imagine you are sitting at a stop sign waiting for the light to turn green when all of the sudden you hear the screeching tires of a truck slamming its brakes as it approaches your bumper. As the impact takes place, your body that is in contact with the seat, is thrown forward. At the same time your head, which is not physically in contact or connected to the car, is delayed in movement. As a result, your head follows a fraction of a second slower leading into hyperextension. This sudden movement can cause of the head to move forward and backward a number of times, and injuries can occur. These include but are not limited to:

  • Tearing of the front neck muscles
  • Tearing of the ligaments of the neck
  • Disc Herniation
  • Fracture
  • Misalignments of the spine called Subluxation
