Read on to learn more about the frequently asked questions we receive about auto accident injuries and chiropractic care.
Can I see a chiropractor for injury relief?
Chiropractic care is a safe and effective way to heal from auto accident injuries. Our chiropractors will evaluate your specific needs and develop a personalized treatment plan to help you recover.
How long will it take to heal?
The length of time it takes to heal from an auto accident injury depends on the severity of your injuries, how often you receive chiropractic adjustments, and your commitment to a home exercise program. Most patients can expect to work with a chiropractor for about two months or more to recover.
How does chiropractic care help whiplash?
Whiplash can cause misalignment of the cervical spine, which can lead to pain and discomfort. Chiropractic adjustments are designed to realign the spine, while supportive therapies like ultrasound, massage, and heat therapy can help to address tight muscles and improve circulation to the affected areas.
Can I work with other treatment providers at the same time?
Yes, chiropractic care can be used in conjunction with other treatment modalities, including prescription medication, physical therapy, massage therapy, or acupuncture.
How often will I need treatment?
The frequency of treatment will depend on the severity of your injury and your individual needs. In the early stages of recovery, we typically recommend three chiropractic treatments per week, gradually decreasing to one treatment per week as you start to feel better.
