Chiropractor Care Can Help You Recover

93% of whiplash patients recover with chiropractic care. Chiropractors that specialize in car accident injuries treatment are specifically trained in detecting injuries that are a result of motor vehicle accidents, whether they are severe or mild. It is very important that you have a car accident chiropractor examine you immediately after an accident to determine if your injuries are serious and give you the treatment necessary for the proper correction of your symptoms. Many times patients are unaware of the severity of their injuries in the first few days or even weeks after the accident. Unfortunately insurance companies are notorious for denying car accident claims if the victim did not contact a chiropractor that specializes in car accident injuries treatment within the first 2 weeks following the accident.

What are Common Symptoms After a Car Accident?

The most common forms of injury from a car accident are neck and back injuries, which can occur in moderate forms such as whiplash and neck strain, to more serious injuries like vertebral dislocation and disc injury. Sometimes, symptoms have a delayed onset. Meaning, although you have been physically injured, you may not feel pain until a few days, or even weeks later. Common symptoms include:

  • Neck pain and stiffness
  • Shoulder and between shoulder blades pain
  • Numbness and tingling down arms and/or legs
  • Nausea
  • Blurred vision
  • Loss of concentration
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Low back pain
  • Headache
  • Dizziness or balance problems
  • Middle back pain
  • Jaw pain
  • Knee pain
  • Hip/thigh pain


Most common injuries that occur during a car accident are related to soft tissue damage. These consist of injuries to ligaments, tendons and muscles. Unfortunately these injuries are not shown on X-rays. That is why it is very important to have your accident chiropractor document them as soon as possible. Also soft tissue damage can cause a limitation of mobility or range of motion in the above areas, either due to pain or swelling.

Other symptoms of car accidents can be dizziness, blurred vision, fatigue, numbness and tingling to the arms or legs. Of course in severe cases, fractures of bones, severe lacerations and bruising can occur.
