Auto Injuries Q&A

What injuries might I get in an auto accident?

Depending on how serious your auto accident is and what happens to your vehicle, you could break or crush any part of your body. However, the most common types of auto accident injuries tend to include:

  • Headache
  • Low back pain
  • Wrist injuries
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder dislocation
  • Sprains and strains
  • Whiplash
  • Disc herniations
  • Neuropathy (nerve pain)

Bruising and cuts are also common, even in minor auto accidents.

How does chiropractic treatment help with auto injuries?

Research shows that chiropractic care is safe and effective for the treatment of whiplash and other auto injuries—even more so than the conventional methods of neck-collar stabilizers, and physical therapy.

The team at Forever Well Chiropractic Whole Body Wellness Center is ready to help you overcome your auto injury and start living pain-free again. 

Forever Well Chiropractic Whole Body Wellness Center can also help if your auto accident took place some time ago but you’re still having symptoms like pain or loss of function. The team can assess untreated injuries or injuries that haven’t healed properly and create a treatment plan to resolve your problems.

How does chiropractic treatment help with whiplash?

Whiplash is a condition that should be treated as soon as it is diagnosed despite the seemingly harmless nature of it compared to the damage to your car. Individuals who let their whiplash linger often end up with symptoms that are more severe and lasting than those that could have been treated quickly with more prompt care.

The severity of the whiplash often is correlated with the positioning of your car's headrest. A lower position tends to result in harsher symptoms since it can act as a catapult in the event of a crash. Even a collision as slow as 10 mph is enough to whip your head forward with enough force to develop symptoms.

A successful whiplash rehabilitation necessitates a chiropractor who has experience treating the condition. Forever Well Chiropractic Whole Body Wellness Center is uniquely trained to assess and treat your whiplash effectively. It is imperative to begin treatment soon after an auto accident if you suspect you are injured. 

Even in cases where you feel fine, it is never a bad idea to get a preliminary assessment to avoid any symptoms from creeping up on you in the future.
