Auto Accident FAQ

What are some symptoms of car accident injuries?

Auto accident injuries can vary depending on the impact that the passenger experiences, therefore, symptoms may also vary. Some of the most common symptoms that car accident victims experience include:

  • Headaches

  • Stiff neck

  • Muscle aches

  • Muscle tension

  • Tightness

  • Limited mobility

  • Back pain

  • Leg pain

  • Neck and shoulder pain

  • Insomnia

  • Irritability

What are the most common types of car accident injuries?

One of the most common problems that car accident victims experience is a condition called whiplash. Whiplash occurs when the muscles and ligaments in the neck become over-stretched and develop tiny tears.

In addition to whiplash, patients may experience the following conditions:

  • Herniated disc. This is a condition caused by damage to the discs found between the vertebrae.

  • Concussion. A concussion is a condition that occurs when the brain experiences a traumatic injury.

  • Subluxations. A subluxation is a condition that occurs when the spinal vertebrae become misaligned or fixated.

Why should a patient see a chiropractor after a car accident even if he or she isn’t experiencing symptoms?

It sometimes takes days or weeks for pain or other symptoms to start. During that time, the condition may become worse. Seeing a chiropractor right away after an accident allows for early treatment to begin which will result in proper healing and the best outcome.

What can Arlington Chiropractic Clinic do to treat auto accident injuries?

Chiropractors use a variety of techniques to help patients recovering from car accident injuries. Some of the most common techniques that we use at Arlington Chiropractic Clinic include:

  • Spinal adjustment. Our spinal adjustment techniques help to realign the vertebrae and restore normal movement to these segments.

  • Stretches and exercises. Learning the proper stretches and exercises can help improve range of motion, restore strength and reduce stiffness which all aid in the recovery process.

  • Massage therapy. Massage therapy is a technique we use to improve circulation, reduce muscle tension and speed up healing.
