Auto Injury Chiropractor and acupuncturist

When you’re involved in an auto accident, there are so many things to deal with – the emotional stress, accident reports, insurance claims, and fixing damage done to your vehicle, just to name a few. But most importantly, it is important to take care of your health as you may have suffered from whiplash or other spinal/soft tissue injuries.  

Even minor car accidents can lead to serious injuries like soft tissue damage, whiplash, and other back problems.  Chiropractor care can help alleviate pain and discomfort in the neck, back and other areas of the body that may have been affected by the accident, as well as reducing inflammation and swelling.  The team at Lakewood Chiropractic in Lee's Summit, MO answers some of the most common questions about how chiropractic care is key to recovering from an auto accident.

What Type of Auto Accident Injuries Do Chiropractors Treat?

Any musculoskeletal injury sustained during an auto accident can benefit from chiropractic care. These include but are not limited to:

  • Whiplash 
  • Neck pain and back pain
  • Herniated discs
  • Nerve compression
  • Neck and spine misalignment
  • Soft tissue injuries

What Can Chiropractic Care Do for Auto Injuries?

Visiting an auto injury chiropractor provides many benefits, including:

  • Pain and inflammation reduction
  • Improved mobility and range of motion
  • Reduced tension and scar tissue
  • Faster and more comprehensive recovery

How Soon Should I Visit a Chiropractor After An Auto Accident?

It’s best to see a chiropractor within the first couple of days after an accident – even when you feel no symptoms. Often, pain and other symptoms don’t present themselves until the shock of the accident wears off, and that can take some time.

Sometimes, an injury doesn’t become obvious until you try to move a specific way, which could happen months later. Visiting a chiropractor immediately after the accident can ensure injuries are discovered before they cause trouble.

If your accident was awhile ago a chiropractor can help restore alignment and health to your musculoskeletal system.

How Many Times Will I need to visit?

Chiropractic care focuses on healing holistically and completely. You'll need several treatments, but the number depends on the type and severity of your injury. You maybe choose to continue with regular visits to maintain spinal health and wellness, as it provides so many benefits.

Don’t take chances with your spinal health. Schedule an appointment at Lakewood Chiropractic – your auto injury chiropractor and acupuncturist in Lee's Summit, MO.
