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
- Blurred vision
- Loss of concentration
- Low back pain
- 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.

I had severe back issues before i started visiting Dr. Nhat Nguyen. After 6 sessions i was feeling almost normal and he has kept me in shape through my monthly visits since then. Also the one hour massage therapy is the added perk of visiting Meridian wellnessJijosh Varkey Back Pain Treatment
I had never been to a chiropractor nor gotten a massage before and did not know what to expect, but my experience with this office has been amazing. The staff (Dr. Nguyen and Ronnie) are always nice and friendly and are very mindful of me each time I visit (work schedule, what hurts, what we discussed during last visit, etc). The Doctor is very informative when explaining the treatments, reasons for my pains, and demonstrating stretches I can do to help ease the aches. With the help of this office my shoulder feels much better and I have a regular exercise regimen which has been a tremendous help in strengthening my muscles especially in my upper body. I would definitely recommend this office to anyone looking for relief.Thamecia Bullard Lower Back Pain
I absolutely love Dr. Nguyen!!! Sarah the receptionist is so amazing, she's very friendly, caring and genuine. Her smile and always positive attitude never fails to brighten my day. No one can meet Sarah and not just love the heck out of her! Courtney, Eliar and Steve are the massage therapists, all such wonderful people!!! Courtney is my personal fav, because she's not afraid to really rub your muscles and she's so easy to talk to-love her to death! And of course let's not forget Dr. Nguyen. He's absolutely amazing at what he does. You can tell he has a genuine passion for helping people; his desire to help people really shines through in an obvious manner in every action and conversation he has with you. He's very thorough and a kind man. All in all, I highly recommend this small yet efficient clinic. Their team works hard to make sure that their patients feel comfortable and receive a personal appropriate recovery plan. I truly appreciate the care I'm given here and enjoy seeing every one of the members of this AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME chiropractic clinic!!!Victoria Jackson Neck and Lower Back Pain
