A treatment plan will be designed for you depending on what your injuries are. 

Chiropractic services that can help

One of the most common injuries in an auto accident is whiplash. When vehicles collide with each other or an inert object, the driver and passenger can have their heads snapped back and forth. This results in varying degrees of pain in the neck, shoulders, and upper back. Some people feel the results of whiplash right at the scene of the accident and others take a little longer. 

Spinal manipulation

The force of an auto accident can cause the vertebrae in the back and neck to become misaligned. Dr. Haywood uses manual and activator adjustments to help to get them back in line. This is the first therapy that is usually applied to help to get the stress from the misalignment alleviated.  

Massage therapy

Different types of massage therapy are available depending on what the needs of the patient are. It can be a relaxation massage to get the tension out of the muscles in the shoulders, neck, and upper back, or it can be a deep tissue massage to work out the knots that form in the muscles and fascia. 

Hydromassage lounge bed

One of the results of an auto accident is stiffness in the muscles from whiplash and where the seat belt tugged on them. With a hydromassage lounge bed, you can get the benefits of massage while lying on a hydro lounge fully clothed. It can help with painful muscles all over the body. 

Class IV Laser

Class IV laser therapy is one of the most safe and effective ways to treat various conditions that pain! Laser therapy has a vast amount of benefits.

Ultrasound therapy 

Ultrasound therapy uses sound waves to go deep beneath the skin to stimulate the tissues. This reduces pain and inflammation while stimulating healing at the cellular level.

Finding the right facility that can provide long-lasting, dependable outcomes along with treatments that concentrate on attending to the soft tissue injuries that are generally the leading cause of pain is the key to chiropractic care after an auto accident. After a vehicle accident, chiropractic therapy cures the injury rather than disguising it with painkillers.

One moment everything may seem fine, when suddenly you’re involved in a serious collision. Most people have one thing on their mind after a car accident--their car! However, it’s important to remember that you and your injuries come first. A visit to a chiropractor should always follow an auto injury, as chiropractors are specialists in damage to soft and hard tissue.

How Can a Chiropractor Help Me After My Auto Accident?

Chiropractors are able to treat neck and back injuries associated with auto accidents. Many times, individuals who have been injured in a car accident experience such intense muscle pain and stiffness that they simply cannot function normally. When left untreated, this discomfort can be a serious issue.

After an auto accident, some individuals experience indicators of whiplash injuries right away, such as blurred vision, headaches, shoulder pain, dizziness, reduced range of motion and arm pain. Whiplash can also result in minor back injuries, muscle injuries, ligament problems, and disc damage. Other individuals may be injured and feel nothing at all.

Treating pain or whiplash should never be secondary to bringing your car at the mechanic or working with your insurance company. If you’ve had an auto accident recently, your first priority should be taking the initiative to visit your chiropractor!
