Chiropractic Care After Car Accidents
Updated: May 28
When someone is involved in a car accident that isn’t a major collision, it may seem more like a nuisance than trauma. Typically more worried about being late for work or an insurance claim, we don’t always stop to assess what damage may have been done to our bodies. At Natural Care Chiropractic, we know some drivers and passengers feel the effects of whiplash injuries immediately following an accident, while others may walk away not feeling injured and experience pain later. This is why you should always visit Natural Care Chiropractic and see Dr. Mark Freund or Dr. Nicole Gopaul for evaluation.
Whiplash occurs when a person’s head moves backward and then forward very suddenly with great force, causing the tendons and ligaments in your neck to tear. The most common site of pain and stiffness for passengers involved in an accident are the neck and back. The more severe injuries may involve concussion which responds well to Atlas Orthogonal and cranial protocols. A chiropractor can evaluate these injuries, as well as treat damage to both hard and soft tissue. Depending on a patient’s evaluation the chiropractor may perform an adjustment or assign exercises to help heal a particular injury. If you have been involved in a car accident of any severity, please contact us.
