Car Accidents and Chiropractic

auto accident neck painIt’s a club none of us want to be in, but many of us are—the car accident club. After being in one, you might experience pain, discomfort, and high levels of stress that can manifest in your body, causing problems throughout.

Even minor fender-benders can wreak havoc on your spine and nervous system.

Here are a few reasons you should visit us for a spinal check and adjustment after any car accident, no matter how big or small!

1. Even if you aren’t in pain, damage inside your body is likely occurring.

Even small micro-traumas repeated daily can add up to big problems. That means if you’re in a car accident, and maybe a bone in your neck shift slightly, you may not notice it. However, day after day, as your nerves struggle to communicate and inflammation builds, problems are happening. Often, pain is the last symptom to show up. By that time, problems may have spread elsewhere. So, even if you’re not in pain, come in to get checked out!

2. The force of the car accident travelled inside of your body.

Whether you were travelling at a high rate of speed, or parked, the amount of force that hit your car also hit your body, internal organs and muscles. It’s easy to see how things may shift, even slightly!

3. We can help your body better manage any stress the accident may have caused.

An auto accident is an incredible blow to deal with, especially if serious injuries were sustained. Your body needs to be able to function at its best, and that means processing stress in a healthy way. An adjustment can do exactly that.

4. Minnesota is a no-fault state, and if you get into a car accident, your insurance will cover you to get treated and checked out.

You’re already paying for it, so why not put it to use to help you feel better or get a peace of mind! During your visit, we’ll provide a thorough examination, look at what’s causing any issues, and check for ligament or tendon damage via x-ray. We’ll develop a custom care plan for your unique needs.
