What are some common musculoskeletal auto accident injuries?
Whiplash is perhaps the most common musculoskeletal car accident injury. Whiplash is often the result of a rear end collision. You may also suffer from misaligned bones or joints, sprains and strains, fractures, herniated discs, and dashboard knee.

How do I know if I have whiplash?
Whiplash is caused by an abrupt jerking of the head. The sudden, jerky movement of your head strains muscles and tendons in your neck, resulting in pain and discomfort. In addition to pain, you may experience neck stiffness, inflammation, headaches, fatigue, dizziness, and limited mobility.
How does chiropractic care help with auto accident injuries?
Chiropractic care is specifically designed to reduce pain and promote healing of musculoskeletal auto injuries. Our chiropractor uses chiropractic techniques like adjustments and spinal manipulation to minimize pain, reduce muscle spasms, and realign your system so it can heal. Depending on your injury, we may combine adjustments with massage therapy, hot and cold treatments, acupuncture, and corrective exercises to promote natural healing of your injury.
Benefits of Chiropractic Auto Accident Treatment
Chiropractic care is a safe, noninvasive, drug-free means of treating musculoskeletal auto injuries. This eliminates your risk of becoming addicted to pain medications or suffering from side effects of prescription drugs. Unlike medications that provide temporary pain relief, chiropractic care treats your pain and the source of your pain to help you recover from your injury.
Does my car insurance cover chiropractic auto accident treatment?
If you are covered by personal injury protection (PIP) insurance, chances are your insurance will cover chiropractic treatments. If the accident wasn’t your fault, you can see if the insurance of the person at fault will compensate you for treatment.
