Why You Should See a Chiropractor after an Auto Accident

If you were in an auto accident, should you see a chiropractor or a medical doctor? A chiropractor can help you recover quickly from an auto accident by treating musculoskeletal injuries. Learn why it's important to see a chiropractor after a car crash. 

Why See a Chiropractor after an Auto Accident 

Chiropractors have a deep understanding of the musculoskeletal system, which includes the spinal column and soft tissue. Auto accidents place a great deal of pressure on your musculoskeletal system, and as a result, the vertebrae in your spine are pushed out of alignment. This creates interference along the spinal column and makes it difficult for the nervous system to communicate effectively. Soft tissue is injured, inflamed, and sore as a result of the crash. 

Chiropractors heal tissue and realign the spine through adjustments that relieve inflammation and pressure. Rather than offer medication to mask the symptoms of injuries, our chiropractor treats injuries at the source. This means no expensive and potentially addictive pain medication; instead, gentle manipulation that actives your body's healing system and restores your natural alignment. 

It all begins with a thorough examination of your auto accident injuries, which allows our chiropractor to develop a custom treatment plan to restore your wellness naturally. 

Auto Accident Injuries Our Chiropractor Treats 

At Blue Apple Chiropractic, we treat common auto accident injuries including: 

  • Seatbelt injuries, such as pulled muscles or flexion fractures 
  • Whiplash, a severe neck strain 
  • Back injuries
  • Strained muscles and tissue injuries
  • Spinal subluxations and other spinal injuries 
  • Head injuries, such as concussion 

In addition to chiropractic treatment, we offer aqua massage. Massage loosens your muscles so we can provide deeper treatment. Massage also relaxes your mind, offering a soothing healing mechanism during your recovery from the accident.

Testimonials

Reviews From our Satisfied Patients

  • "I was very impressed with the chiropractic care I received from Darr. I had received chiropractic in the past for my neck pain, but not to this level of care. After only a few sessions, my symptoms began to disappear, especially my neck pain, and I know I would not have been able to perform to my everyday work functions without the treatment I received."
    John Doe / Bozeman, MT
  • "As a court reporter, using my hands to type on a daily basis is a requirement. The work is speedy and can often last for hours at a time. Several months ago, every movement I made became excruciatingly painful. I started seeing Darr and got started on a program that helped right away. The doctor stressed the importance of my posture and proper hand and arm placement."
    Jane Smith / Bozeman, MT
  • "I have benefited tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Darr. Not only has the adjustments helped alleviate my stiffness and aches, but it has helped me have more energy and just feel more balanced over all. A few months ago, I was able to resume a favorite hobby of mine - golf. Due to my previous pain, I never thought that’d be possible."
