Auto Accident FAQs

Why See a Chiropractor for an Auto Accident Injury?

Chiropractors specialize in pain relief from musculoskeletal injuries. Your physician may recommend pain pills to manage whiplash pain and discomfort. Our chiropractor will use chiropractic techniques and other natural therapies to alleviate painful symptoms and promote healing.  

When Should I See a Chiropractor after an Accident?

Just because you don’t feel pain immediately after an auto accident doesn’t mean you don’t have an injury. Some injuries, like whiplash, have delayed symptoms, meaning you may not feel pain until days or weeks later. By seeing a chiropractor as soon as possible after the accident, you can know for sure if you have a soft tissue injury to avoid delay in getting treatment. Prompt and effective treatment can help expedite your recovery.

What Auto Accident Injuries Do Chiropractors Treat?

A chiropractor can treat common auto accident injuries like whiplash, sprains and strains, soft tissue injuries, subluxations, herniated discs, slipped discs, and more. Through chiropractic care, you can benefit from pain relief and natural healing.  

How Do Chiropractors Treat Auto Accident Injuries?

We’ll start by reviewing your medical history and conducting an evaluation of your injury. This evaluation will determine the source and extent of your injury. It will also determine if you’re a good candidate for chiropractic treatment.

Our chiropractic treatments consist of chiropractic techniques and natural therapies to help you heal. If you suffer from misaligned bones or joints, spinal manipulation will help restore balance to your system so you can heal. Adjustments reduce muscle tension and inflammation to minimize pain and improve flexibility. Massage therapy improves circulation to afflicted areas to promote quicker healing.  We’ll personalize your treatment program to suit your healthcare needs.

Will My Auto Insurance Cover the Cost of Chiropractic Treatments?

If you have personal injury protection (PIP) as part of your coverage, your insurer should help cover the cost of chiropractic care for an auto accident injury. If you’re not at fault for the accident, the insurer of the driver at fault should compensate you for medical treatments.
