Chiropractic and medical come together to provide care for auto injuries.

Each car accident has unique factors that can have a wide range of biomechanical impacts on the body and affect each person uniquely, requiring a personalized approach to developing treatment plans.

Diagnostic studies may be required for the less obvious injuries or a referral to a neurologist or orthopedic specialist.  We work closely with the medical community to ensure prompt referrals, all handled by our injury care team.

Injuries sustained in car accidents can last a lifetime.

Car crashes generate different forces, including acceleration, deceleration, and collision(s). These forces can result in severe injuries to the human body, including:

Injury to the ligaments that provide stability to spinal joints, unstable joints become arthritic over time.
Muscle tearing can limit flexibility and range of motion,  leading to the development of trigger points.
Irritation and or compression of the spinal cord and spinal nerves.
Disc injury can compress the spinal cord and nerves.

The most common symptoms include:

Headaches at the base of the skull may radiate to the temporal region and into the eyes.
Jaw pain worsened by chewing.
Neck pain -that can radiate to either or both arms and hands.
Shoulder pain.
Upper back pain.
Low back pain that may radiate to the legs and toes.
Hip – buttock pain.
Knee pain.
