Car Crash Recovery
Auto Accident Injury Therapy in Sacramento
Should You See a Chiropractor After a Car Crash?
Have you been in a car crash and are now experiencing back problems or neck pain? The quality of the healing that occurs immediately following an auto accident can make the difference between a complete and a partial recovery. Failure to adequately take care of your injury after a crash may lead to permanent impairment. That’s why, even in relatively minor cases, it’s always a good idea to schedule an appointment with your local chiropractor if you have neck or back pain following a car accident.

When a car accident occurs, the impact of the crash can cause the people inside the car to be jolted around. The force of impact can cause soft tissues injuries such as:
Numbness and Tingling
Low Back Pain
Sore and Achy Muscles
Healing After a Car Accident
If you are experiencing any of the conditions listed above, it’s important that you see a chiropractor to help speed up and improve the healing process. Left untreated, they can severely interfere with your wellbeing. Often, an individual with injuries to the tendons or ligaments will not experience symptoms for hours after a car accident and in some cases days.
Once the symptoms begin however, they will typically be characterized by persistent pain and inflammation. This is a natural result of soft tissue injury and helps to make the person aware that a body part has been damaged. The pain, however, can be significant and can stall or inhibit healing if left untreated.
Why Get Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care can reduce the frequency of your symptoms and the severity of your pain. Chiropractors specialize in treating non-surgical injuries such as whiplash, neck, and back spinal injuries from automobile accidents.
Other injuries may include:
Lumbar or thoracic vertebrae fractures
