Auto Accident Chiropractic at Alpine Family Chiropractic

Car Accident Injuries

In a car accident, the force of the collision is absorbed by your body, causing it to whip one direction and then the opposite direction quite violently. The result is often strained ligaments in the neck and back, as well as other soft tissue damage and misaligned joints.

Even in a minor fender-bender, your body can sustain more damage than your car, because modern cars are designed to absorb a great deal of force with minimal deformation.

Chiropractic is very effective in treating car crash injuries. It’s important to restore the joints to their normal position so your spine can heal correctly, which helps prevent more serious problems down the road. If we don’t correct the position of the spine, your body will heal in that “locked up” position and these joint restrictions can lead to headaches, migraines, arthritis and degeneration.

When your body is stuck in this suboptimal state, you’re more prone to future injuries. Simple things like shoveling snow can then cause your back to seize up, resulting in severe pain that is much more difficult to correct than if we take care of it right after the accident.

At Alpine Family Chiropractic , we start with the evaluation and begin treatment immediately to help get you out of pain. We’ll refer you to physical therapy and massage right away to begin taking care of the soft tissue damage. If we need X-rays, we will refer you out for those.

If you break your arm, the doctor sets it and immobilizes it in a cast for 6 weeks, and then you’re good to go. But we can’t set and immobilize your spine to allow it to heal, so we work to keep the muscles and joints in the best possible position throughout your healing and recovery.
