Many of our patients come to us after they have been involved in a car accident, and they often have questions related to auto accident injury and chiropractic services. Here are a few of the most common questions we receive, along with answers from our medical doctor and our chiropractors.
What are the most common injuries after a car accident?
Spinal injuries, whiplash, and herniated and bulging discs are the most common injuries in minor car accidents and fender-benders. These soft tissue injuries occur because the body is rapidly bounced back and forth between the car seat and the seatbelt, which throws the spine out of alignment, and damages the ligaments and discs, which cushion and support the vertebrae. If you think you have suffered a soft tissue injury or trauma such as whiplash as a result of an auto accident please contact our office and schedule an appointment.
Is getting seen by a chiropractor after an auto accident safe?
Getting evaluated by a chiropractor after an accident and potential auto accident injury in North Charleston is completely safe.
