Alleviating Pain and Restoring Stability

When you’ve been in an auto accident, our first goal at Good Health Chiropractic & Acupuncture is to alleviate your pain. We tailor adjustments to your specific injury and needs, with the goal of getting you as comfortable as possible as quickly as possible.

Our next step is to stabilize the injured area, which can be anywhere along the spine. People have heard about whiplash, but many times they think of it as nothing more than a sprained neck. Whiplash occurs when your head moves very quickly in one direction, and then snaps back in the other direction. The force of this action results in trauma to all soft tissues of the cervical spine (the neck)–including ligaments, tendons and muscles.

All this damage destabilizes your neck, causing pain and impaired motion. Your head weighs around 11 lbs, and that’s a lot of weight for the seven segments of your neck to carry when it’s injured and unstable.

Auto accidents don’t simply affect your neck. Higher-speed accidents can also cause serious lower-back injuries. Chiropractic care is extremely effective in restoring stability to the spine.

Fender Benders

People often think that a minor “fender bender” doesn’t cause any injury, but that’s not always the case. Modern cars are designed to absorb a lot of force. However, that force still travels throughout your body. Even in a low-speed collision, significant injury to the neck can happen, so it’s never safe to assume that since your vehicle looks fine, you’re also fine.

We recommend getting checked out as soon as possible after an accident. We have the newest, state-of-the-art digital X-ray system on-site, and we know what to look for after a car accident. Getting care immediately can help prevent more serious problems from developing down the road. But even if it’s been some time since your accident, we can still help. We’ve helped many patients who were in a car accident and didn’t notice symptoms until months later.
