Auto Accident

One moment everything may seem fine, when suddenly you’re involved in a serious collision. Most people have one thing on their mind after a car accident–their car! However, it’s important to remember that you and your injuries come first. A visit to a chiropractor should always follow an auto injury, as chiropractors are specialists in damage to soft and hard tissue.

How Can a Chiropractor Help Me After My Auto Accident?

Chiropractors are able to treat neck and back injuries associated with auto accidents. Many times, individuals who have been injured in a car accident experience such intense muscle pain and stiffness that they simply cannot function normally. When left untreated, this discomfort can be a serious issue.

After an auto accident, some individuals experience indicators of whiplash injuries right away, such as blurred vision, headaches, shoulder pain, dizziness, reduced range of motion, and arm pain. Whiplash can also result in minor back injuries, muscle injuries, ligament problems, and disc damage. Other individuals may be injured and feel nothing at all.

Treating pain or whiplash should never be secondary to bringing your car at the mechanic or working with your insurance company. If you’ve had an auto accident recently, your first priority should be taking the initiative to visit your chiropractor!

A car accident is the last thing anyone would ever want to experience, but unfortunately it is a possibility in our modern world. In Virginia, the Department of Motor Vehicles’ most recent report states that there have been 42,425 injuries related to auto accidents, and nearly a third of those injuries have been reported in Fairfax County. This means that a little over 14,000 people in our area suffer from auto accident related pain. 

Sometimes auto accident pain is immediate, but oftentimes our bodies go into shock and we are unable to feel the full extent of any injuries sustained. This is why it is important to be proactive, and seek an auto accident chiropractor as soon as possible. Sometimes neck or back pain might not be apparent until days after the initial incident. Oftentimes your body might be experiencing problems that you might not pick up on if all you rely for notification on is pain. So, if you have been involved in a car accident, it is important to make an appointment with the auto accident chiropractor at RxWellnes and get checked out immediately. It is better to know you are fine, than to assume you are, and find out later that you are not. Whether you have whiplash or an injury to your lower back, our chiropractors can help you recover through various techniques such as:
