The Importance of Contacting a Chiropractor After An Auto Accident

Published on December 18, 2023

This is the first in a series of posts on chiropractic care and auto accidents.

When someone is in an automobile accident, it’s normal to go to the emergency room to get checked out. So, once you’ve been cleared by the medical personnel, you may wonder why you should come see us at Highlands Family Chiropractic.

More Than the Eye Can See

During a crash, your body is subjected to great forces it simply wasn’t built to handle. These forces place strain and stress on your neck, shoulder, and back. This can actually cause injury to the ligaments that hold your spine together.

Being involved in an accident may cause a wide variety of injuries and pain symptoms, and symptoms may remain hidden for days, weeks, and in some cases, months after the actual accident. As part of your care, we properly identify, document, and treat your injuries to maximize your recovery physically, and provide your attorney with the necessary documentation to maximize your rightful compensation.

A Different Approach

Our chiropractors are extensively trained in biomechanics, the science that deals with the body’s movement, including how muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments work together. This allows us to analyze the effects of your injuries at a deeper level to provide the care you need.

Some symptoms patients experience include headaches, muscle soreness, back pain, neck pain, and dizziness. Chiropractic care takes the pressure off your nervous system, reduces inflammation, and relieves pain.

If additional care is needed, Dr. Hicks is also part of a network of providers and will help manage your treatment through referrals for physical therapy, massage therapy, pain management, and surgical outcomes. This comprehensive approach to care allows you to heal as quickly and completely as possible.
