Car Accident Injuries Q & A

Absolute Healthcare Advanced Chiropractic

What is a car accident injury?

A complex system of muscle, bones, tendons, ligaments, and organs constitute the human body. When exposed to the sudden impact of a car accident, this delicate system is easily disrupted.

Car accident injuries can vary based on the severity of the accident, but even a minor fender bender can lead to chronic pain. In the United States, approximately 2.35 million people are injured or disabled each year from car accidents.

What types of injuries are caused by car accidents?

Your doctors at Absolute Healthcare Advanced Chiropractic have experience treating a variety of injuries from car accidents, including:

  • Neck, knee, and shoulder injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Herniated discs
  • Soft-tissue injuries
  • Displaced bone fragments in the spine

What are the symptoms of car accident injuries?

The injuries from a car accident are not always obvious. In fact, sometimes it can take hours or days before symptoms occur.

Common symptoms of a car accident injury include:

  • Chest pain
  • Headaches
  • Neck strain
  • Stiff neck
  • Stiffness or pain in the body
  • Anxiety or panic attack symptoms

How can chiropractic medicine treat car accident injuries?

When you’ve been in a car accident, it’s vital to ensure that you don’t have hidden injuries. If you address these injuries quickly, you can directly impact your recovery. Ignoring an injury can lead to long-term or chronic pain.

Dr. Joseph and Dr. Laura Pate at Absolute Healthcare Advanced Chiropractic are trained to identify damage that traumas may have caused. 

When your injury is diagnosed, your doctor may recommend:

  • Chiropractic manipulation
  • Massage therapy
  • Spinal decompression
  • Board-certified acupuncture
  • Physical rehabilitation

Through these noninvasive treatments, you can experience:

  • Reduced inflammation
  • Less scar tissue
  • Pain relief in your entire body without medication
  • Less chance for long-term or chronic pain
  • Restored range of motion

Seeking professional treatment immediately following your accident also ensures that you receive proper documentation for your injury if an insurance claim is pursued.
