Car Accident Chiropractic

Have a question that's not listed here? Please let us know.

Car accidents are one of the most common reasons why people reach out to a chiropractor.

What a lot of people don't know is that if you were in a car accident that wasn't your fault, then most times your car insurance will cover your chiropractic costs (especially if you work with a good personal injury lawyer). This is because car accidents can be extremely detrimental to your health. In physics terminology, whatever force is not absorbed by the car during a car accident is actually absorbed by your body. This oftentimes leaves you feeling sore in your spine as well as other areas of your body. However, there are many cases where you don't feel the negative side effects of a car accident until weeks, months, or even years later. Regardless, chiropractic is a great way to ensure that your alignment remains intact after a car accident to help with conditions you feel now or even help prevent conditions that you might have experienced later in the future. This allows you to feel better and heal correctly. In some instances, a car accident can seem like a blessing in disguise because it allows you to discover the chiropractor. This way you are able to receive the benefits of chiropractic care to help take your health to the next level. If the misalignments in your body are not treated after a car accident, then they most likely will heal misaligned and leave you with issues in the future. This is why it is extremely important to reach out to a chiropractor or personal injury lawyer after a car accident so you don't miss out on the benefits! The easiest way to reach out is by scheduling yourself online so we can help you heal from your car accident sooner rather than later.

  • Can whiplash affect my spine/back?
    Yes, whiplash can affect your spine and your back. Whiplash is a forceful, rapid movement of your neck back and forth. Normally, this motion causes the head to suddenly move backwards and then forwards. This is often caused by a car accident or any instance where you are traveling at a substantial speed and then suddenly interrupted. This most often causes a sprain of the ligaments of the spine and a strain of the muscles of the spine. After an injury like this, inflammation rushes to the area to start the healing process. Unfortunately, inflammation leads to pain, stiffness, and achiness of your spine. Chiropractic is one of the greatest ways to help speed up the recovery process and more importantly help ensure that your spine heals in proper alignment. If your spine heals incorrectly, then you may be subject to injuries or symptoms in the future. If you feel like you have whiplash or have suffered whiplash in the past, then be sure to schedule your first appointment here to help with the healing process.
  • Should I see a chiropractor even if I feel fine after a car accident?
    Yes, you should see a chiropractor even if you feel fine after a car accident. This is because the negative effects of a car accident are sometimes delayed. The delay can be anything from a couple days, weeks, months, and even years. It's important to understand that whatever force is not absorbed by your car during an accident is actually absorbed by your body. This means that you can feel fine but still end up with several injuries that are not felt (asymptomatic). A chiropractor will be able to fully examine your body to ensure that all of your misalignments are corrected so you are less likely to feel the negative impacts of a car accident. So if you've been in a car accident recently or even in the past, then be sure to schedule your first appointment here
  • What are the long term effects of a car accident?
    The long term effects of a car accident depend on the severity of the accident, the vehicles in the accident, and the health of the person involved. For example, a severe accident to a small unhealthy child would be very different from a minor accident to a large healthy man. Also, it is important to understand that whatever force is not absorbed by your car during an accident is actually absorbed by your body. This is why cars with higher safety ratings leave you in a better condition than cars with a lower safety rating. Regardless, if injuries from a car accident are not treated correctly, then you may experience the consequences down the road. These consequences can be anything from pain, to organ dysfunctions, to even emotional distress. This is why it is extremely important to see a chiropractor after your car accident to help make sure you don't suffer future consequences from your car accident. So if you've been in a car accident, be sure to reach out and schedule here
  • Does the speed of a car accident change the impact it has on my body?
    Yes and no. There are many factors to consider in a car accident, with speed of each vehicle being one of them. Regardless of the speed of your car accident, the chiropractor should be one of your first stops on your healing process. So if you've been in a car accident, regardless if it was fast or slow, be sure to schedule your first appointment here
  • Why do I feel sore and stiff after a car accident?
    A car accident often leaves you feeling sore and stiff. This is because a car accident is an injury and all injuries require a healing process. The healing process involves inflammation to the injured area. In the case of a car accident, the spine is one of the first places to become inflamed. The inflammation usually causes stiffness and soreness. Chiropractic is designed to speed up the healing process and allow your body to heal correctly. This causes your soreness and stiffness to lessen quicker than without chiropractic care. This is why it is vital to see a chiropractor after a car accident to help you feel less sore and stiff. So if you're feeling sore and stiff after your car accident, then be sure to schedule here so we can help your body heal quicker and correctly.
  • Does my car insurance cover all of my chiropractic care?
    Car insurance normally covers most medical costs after a car accident where you were not at fault. In fact, this is one reason car insurance exists in the first place. Most people are able to use their own car insurance to cover the cost of chiropractic care if they were not at fault in a car accident. Of course, you should always check with your car insurance company and personal injury lawyer because not all car insurance companies are the same. This is why we offer a free 10 minute phone consultation for anybody that has been in a car accident and has questions regarding the process to receive chiropractic care. So if you have car insurance and were hit by a car, then be sure to reach out immediately and schedule your first appointment here
  • What happens if I don't see a chiropractor after a car accident?
    Not seeing a chiropractor after a car accident can be detrimental to your health. This is because a car accident, no matter how small or large, is a traumatic injury. When you suffer any traumatic injury it is important to do whatever you can to improve your healing process. After a car accident, your body will do its best to heal. Unfortunately, if your body is misaligned from a car accident and it heals misaligned, then you're more likely to suffer the consequences of these misalignments in the future. Seeing a chiropractor after your car accident ensures that your body heals in proper alignment so you are less likely to suffer from future symptoms. So if you've been in a car accident, be sure to schedule here so we can help make sure you heal correctly.
  • What is Personal Injury Protection (PIP)?
    Personal injury protection is a component of an automobile insurance plan that covers the healthcare expenses associated with a car accident. Not only does PIP cover the medical expenses, such as chiropractic, for the policyholder, but it also covers the passengers in the vehicle even if they don't have the same health insurance. PIP is an amazing addition to have on your car insurance plan because car accidents are unpredictable so it is best to be prepared. Most personal injury lawyers would agree that personal injury protection is a great addition to have for your car insurance policy. If you don't know if you have PIP or not, simply call your insurance company and ask. If you don't have PIP, you can simply call your insurance company and ask to have that added to your policy. Regardless, even if you don't have PIP as part of your policy, you should still seek out chiropractic care after your car accident by scheduling here
  • Should I work with a Personal Injury Lawyer if I was in a car accident?
    A personal injury lawyer is a lawyer who provides legal services to those who claim to have been injured in a car accident (as well as other traumas). Chiropractors and patients prefer to work with a personal injury lawyer because they help smooth out the legal side of a personal injury car accident case. In fact, we work with one lawyer in particular the majority of the time because he is ethical and great at his job. Choosing to not work with a personal injury lawyer may cause you to feel confused during conversations with your insurance company. Not to mention you do not pay the personal injury lawyer out of pocket because they typically get paid on a contingency fee basis in Texas. This is why if you've been in a car accident, we highly recommend you schedule your first appointment here and potentially get in contact with our personal injury lawyer or a lawyer of your choice.
