When you are in a car accident, your back and neck are forcefully jarred, which can lead to hidden injuries, like whiplash and herniated discs.  Directly after your accident, you may not feel any pain, but that does not mean you are injury-free.

Chiropractic Treatment with our Auto Accident Injury Chiropractor

Our auto accident injury chiropractor is experienced in treating a multitude of car accident injuries from whiplash to herniated discs, and each treatment program is designed for the individual.  A few of our treatment options include chiropractic adjustments, spinal decompression, massage therapy and corrective exercises

Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments involve realigning your vertebrae or extremity joints using a short, swift thrust.  This is effective for treating subluxations after a car accident, restoring joint function and reducing back pain.

Spinal Decompression

If your car accident resulted in a herniated disc or pinched nerve in your back or neck, spinal decompression can help by increases the spaces between the vertebrae.  This helps herniated discs heal and takes the pressure off compressed or pinched nerves.  It is also completely non-invasive.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy can help heal sore, injured muscles by relaxing the soft tissues, aiding in blood flow to injured areas and helping the muscles release lactic acid.  This treatment can be combined with any of our other treatment options.

Corrective Exercises

Corrective exercises are beneficial for regaining your muscle strength.  When your muscles are injured due to an accident, they can lose strength and flexibility, which can hinder your everyday activities.  Targeted exercises and stretches can help you rebuild strength, endurance and range of motion after a car accident injury.
