Chiropractic Care After an Auto Accident
There are many injuries that commonly result from an auto accident, many of which are related directly to the spine. Whiplash, for instance, is the single most common auto accident injury. Specifically, this injury occurs when the cervical (upper) spine is forced forward abruptly while the middle and lower (lumbar) spine remain still, such as in the case of a sudden stop or collision where a seat belt is being worn. Symptoms of whiplash may not show up until 24-48 hours after the accident, but can cause crippling pain and stiffness in the neck and back.
Another common car accident injury is that of slipped or herniated discs, which occur when the fluid-filled discs in between the vertebrae in the spine are forced out of place, causing sharp and centralized pain.

Chiropractic Treatment Options for Auto Accident Injuries
The good news is that there are non-invasive chiropractic treatment and pain management options available to those suffering from common auto accident injuries. For example, if you’re suffering from whiplash, spinal adjustment therapy could help you find relief from your pain. This procedure works through gently manipulating the spine to improve its alignment and promoting the healing of the torn tendons, muscles, and ligaments in the spine.
Furthermore, spinal decompression is often effective in treating herniated and bulging discs. This is done using a special motorized table that decompresses the spine, allowing the discs to return to their proper position and form and providing relief from pain.
