Common Questions About Visiting a Chiropractor After An Auto Accident

Even if you drive carefully, you risk being involved in an auto accident every time you hit the road. If that risk becomes a reality, it’s important to see an auto injury chiropractor as soon as possible. Dr. Moliver and the team at Moliver Chiropractic in Davidson, NC, answer some common questions about chiropractic care for auto accidents below.

Do I Really Need to See a Chiropractor If I’ve Already Seen My Doctor?

If you were checked out by emergency response personnel and visited your regular doctor, you probably think you’re good to go. Hopefully, this is the case, but it’s important to get checked out by a chiropractor. Emergency personnel specialize in life-threatening issues, and regular physicians can check your general health. However, chiropractors specialize in musculoskeletal injuries – something that’s hard not to sustain in an auto accident.

How Soon Should I See a Chiropractor?

As soon as you’ve been cleared for life-threatening injuries, you should plan a visit to your chiropractor – preferably within the first few days of your accident. This allows the chiropractor to begin any treatment measures necessary, even if you don’t yet notice any pain.

What Types of Auto Accident Injuries Can Chiropractors Help With?

Being involved in an auto accident means that your body has sustained a great deal of force, which can wreak havoc throughout your musculoskeletal system. This leads to injuries such as concussions, whiplash, herniated discs, misalignment, ligament tears, sprains and strains, back injuries, knee injuries, shoulder dislocations, and more. A chiropractor can help you achieve natural and lasting recovery from each of these injuries.

What Types of Techniques Are Used for Auto Accidents?

Chiropractic care is highly customized for the individual seeking it, so every treatment plan will differ. The following are some of the most common techniques combined for optimal healing and relief.

  • Chiropractic adjustments including extremity adjustments and computer-assisted and instrument-assisted adjustments
  • Electric stimulation to help relieve tension and muscle spasms
  • Intersegmental traction to create space in the spine, relieving pressure on the muscles, discs, and nerves
  • Therapeutic exercise to strengthen damaged areas and stretch tense areas
  • Soft tissue techniques to restore range of motion, improve blood flow, relieve tension, and more
