Auto Accident Injuries
How a Chiropractor Can Help After an Auto Accident
Injuries caused by auto accidents must be taken care of as soon as possible. Research shows that even a 5 MPH car accident can cause microfractures in the spine. Small accidents and more damaging accidents affect the spine in many different ways including whiplash injuries to the neck and low back and lead to headaches, neck or low back pain, or even nerve related issues in the arms and legs.
Sometimes these symptoms do not come on for 7 to 10 years following a car accident. By then, the damage has already set in and can cause long term health effects that could have been prevented with care following the accident.
Our office treats many patients as a result of the trauma due to car accidents. Many times the at-fault insurance company or medpay on your auto insurance policy can be utilized for treatment of conditions caused by these auto accidents with no out of pocket expense to you.
