Auto Accidents

If you are involved in a car accident, you may walk away from the event with excruciating low back or neck pain. However, many musculoskeletal injuries sustained in car accidents, such as whiplash, do not cause pain until days or even weeks afterward, lulling you into a false sense of wellness. Even ‘minor incidents’ can lead to severe injuries, so it is important to receive a chiropractic exam immediately following your accident, even if injury symptoms are not present. You should always let a chiropractor evaluate you and your family following an accident so that you can receive prompt chiropractic care if necessary.

auto-3At Spine & Sports Chiropractic Clinic, our doctors’ first job is to examine and diagnose your injuries using extensive knowledge of acute injuries and the technology available to us. It is then with our experience that we determine a treatment plan that gets you back to feeling well safely and quickly. When we design our treatment plans, we make sure to not only concentrate on correcting spinal dysfunction, but focus on facilitating the healing process of the surrounding tissues that have most certainly sustained injury as well.
