One moment everything may seem fine, when suddenly you’re involved in a serious collision. Most people have one thing on their mind after a car accident--their car! However, it’s important to remember that you and your injuries come first. A visit to a chiropractor should always follow an auto injury, as chiropractors are specialists in damage to soft and hard tissue.
How Can a Chiropractor Help Me After My Auto Accident?
Chiropractors are able to treat neck and back injuries associated with auto accidents. Many times, individuals who have been injured in a car accident experience such intense muscle pain and stiffness that they simply cannot function normally. When left untreated, this discomfort can be a serious issue.
After an auto accident, some individuals experience indicators of whiplash injuries right away, such as blurred vision, headaches, shoulder pain, dizziness, reduced range of motion and arm pain. Whiplash can also result in minor back injuries, muscle injuries, ligament problems, and disc damage. Other individuals may be injured and feel nothing at all.
Treating pain or whiplash should never be secondary to bringing your car at the mechanic or working with your insurance company. If you’ve had an auto accident recently, your first priority should be taking the initiative to visit your chiropractor!
"I had a car accident a couple months ago. I hurt my neck and my back. I had been instructed to use and ice and I was taking aspirin for the pain. I came to Dr. Reilly after about 3 weeks of pain and discomfort.
My back and neck are now in better condition than they were when I came to see Dr. Reilly. I am able to perform different tasks without my back and neck hurting.
I would tell others that chiropractic care really helps. It helped me recover from my injuries in such a short amount of time."

"I was involved in an automobile accident 7 months ago. After 5 months of seeing a neurosurgeon with zero relief and plenty of pain and discomfort from steroid injections and nerve studies, I ran into Fairview Chiropractic at a trade show and decided to give it a shot. It couldn’t hurt anything. This pain was debilitating and required drugs to make it through the day. Pain was in my neck and radiated down my left arm
Although I am not 100%, I am remarkably better. I can go through most days and forget I have a neck injury. I would tell others to try chiropractic if they are in pain. It does not hurt and there is something to it, not just some quack popping your neck and back.
My experience here, starting with the friendly/caring staff and ending with Dr. Reilly, has been awesome. A truly professional outfit."

"I had headaches, neck, shoulder and low back pain from an automobile accident. I saw an orthopedic surgeon. I tried medication and physical therapy without relief. My severe pain is gone and I’m still getting better. Don’t put off going to a chiropractor, I have gotten wonderful care with Dr Reilly."
