Auto Accidents

Getting into an auto accident is a scary enough situation, but dealing with whiplash or neck pain after the initial incident can be even worse. It is imperative that you get the proper care and treatment right away in order to reduce discomfort, eliminate the risk of further injury, and help prevent chronic pain problems in the future.

At Lance O’Connor Chiropractic, we help patients everyday with injuries stemming from automobile collisions. We offer a full range of chiropractic adjustment services to help bring your body back to ideal health and help reduce overall discomfort after an incident has occurred.

Neck Pain, Back Pain, and Whiplash in Auto Accidents

Injuries commonly sustained during auto accidents include neck pain, back pain, and whiplash. These musculoskeletal types of injuries generally happen when the body is suddenly jostled due to impact of the collision. In fact, injury can be sustained even in minor accidents and fender benders under five miles per hour.

Individuals may feel fine in the minutes or hours after the incident, but have symptoms that become apparent much later. Some patients don’t even realize that they are injured until long after an accident, including weeks after the initial collision. Headaches associated with whiplash may present a few days later and be brushed off as simply tension or sinus allergies. Neck or low back pain may be associated with simply sleeping in an awkward position or bending wrong. In actuality, the issues all stem from the impact of the accident itself.

Without proper follow up care, these issues can escalate into debilitating conditions that can make living a full, active life difficult. Thus, it is very important to seek treatment as soon as possible after the accident.

How Chiropractic Care and Other Treatments Help

Chiropractic adjustment, physical therapy, and other treatments have long been proven as an effective way to heal after an auto accident. These types of care help bring the back, neck, and spine into ideal alignment and can help reduce inflammation. After only a few treatments, patients also see a reduction of other symptoms besides those that they associated with neck or back pain—such as dizziness, blurred vision, irritability, forgetfulness, and others. Furthermore, these types of non-invasive treatment not only reduce discomfort, but can also eliminate the need for risky painkillers, muscle relaxers, and other medications.
