ABSOLUTELY!!!  If you have been involved in a car accident, you know that it can be an overwhelming if not terrifying experience. Many people have to deal with both their bodies and their cars, making it mentally and physically stressful.  An experienced chiropractor can help alleviate a lot of that stress, so we should be one of the first people you call.

Some people start to experience problems immediately after the collision, other people can take a few days to a few months before symptoms begin.   So no matter how severe you think your injury was, it still is a good idea to seek chiropractic care.  The sooner you can get care, the sooner your body can heal and the trauma from the accident will respond quicker.

Often we find neck and low back injuries after a car accident has occurred,  The neck since the shoulder harness locks your body down, making your neck more moveable.  The low back since the lap belt creates a fulcrum that your body bends around,  Other areas can be injured drprndin g on the angle and severity of the accident such as your shoulder (hitting side window), knee(s)  (hitting the dashboard/ steering wheel) , chest area (hitting the steering wheel), hands )protecting yourself (hitting dashboard, steering window, windshield, air bag), etc.

We evaluate your ranges of motion and look for disc injuries.  Also, we use a Surface Electromyogram (sEMG) to evaluate your nerve activity and underlying muscle damage that may have occurred.  We are trained to help relieve pain and will provide you important information to help with the healing process.
