Chiropractic Care after Auto Accident Injuries

Whiplash injuries are getting higher each year and recently an estimated 3 million whiplash injuries occurred in the U.S.

What is damaged in the neck, shoulder, or back area after a car accident (whiplash) and why it hurts vary depending on the mechanism of impact such as frontal impact crash, side impact crash, rear impact crash or pedestrian injuries and human factors such as age, gender and pre-existing conditions, etc.

Basically, the sudden force stretches and tears the muscles and tendons in the neck, shoulder or back causing neck pain, shoulder sprains, or back strain. Also any impact and blow on the spine can cause disc, facet joint or vertebrae injuries.

In addition to neck and back pain, there are other symptoms associated with car accidents such as headaches, sleep disturbances, fatigues, weakness, memory loss, lack of concentration and depression.

After you visit the Emergency Room, Urgent Care, or a General physician, you might be prescribed pain medication and muscle relaxants. However, there is no assurance that your body will heal appropriately. Also, if the body is not aligned, the pain might not go away.

At Atlas Chiropractic Clinic, we provide natural and conservative chiropractic care to help you feel better and heal correctly.
