Why Get A Chiropractic Evaluation After A Motor Vehicle Collision

Posted on Apr 8, 2019


Why should someone visit a chiropractor after they’ve been in a car crash? Typically, a car crash jolts a person’s body in a sudden and forced way, which could cause injury to the neck or back. However, symptoms of these problems might not manifest until several days later. That said, a chiropractor is the right person to treat “invisible injuries,” especially the kind stemming from a car crash, “right away.” In other words, don’t put off seeing a chiropractor for weeks or months after a crash– get attention quickly to fix the problems before they get out of hand and you’re in excruciating pain.

What are some of the invisible injuries associated with car crashes which chiropractors treat? Well, there’s whiplash, which can include headaches, nausea, soreness, dizziness and, of course, pain in the neck (and or shoulders/upper back). To avoid long-term pain, see a chiropractor right after a car crash. He or she can adjust your bones, muscles and tissues to relieve whatever’s “out of whack.”

Speaking of chiropractors and car crashes, did you know micro-tears can occur in ligaments and muscles? This is the reason accident victims feel sore even if X-rays “look normal.” A chiropractor makes spinal manipulations to realign the spinal column in order to reduce inflammation and pain naturally. This “without drugs” approach surely beats having to take all sorts of pills and drugs!

A chiropractor’s care after a car crash will ultimately help reduce scar tissue, pain in the body, and improve or restore a person’s range of motion. Your body wants to heal itself naturally– sometimes it just needs the healing hands of a chiropractor to “kickstart” the process.

Finally, if you need to file an insurance claim after a crash, it’s a good idea to see a chiropractor who will then record all your injuries and write up a report detailing what he or she found wrong with you.

In Forest Lake, MN, the chiropractor to visit immediately after a car crash is Dr. Jason Gerard at Lakewoods Chiropractic, located at 255 Highway 97 in Suite #2A. Please call the office at 651-464-0800 or email info@lakewoodschiropractic.com to schedule your appointment.

Great place to heal!! Exceeded my expectations. My only complaint is I didn't come sooner!! After seeing three doctors with a solution of cortisone injections in my back it was time to try something more natural. While I've always understood the importance of chiropractic care I've never fully tried it. Everything they have done here is tailored for me! I started feeling better by the 3rd adjustment! I haven't taken a single pain med! Praise God!! Don't wait to get the care you need!! I wish I hadn't. Five stars and more!! Bonus....I was given all the equipment I need to do my stretches at home along with an in depth nutritional support system! Amazing!
