We will conduct a thorough evaluation to diagnose your auto accident injury and recommend an effective treatment plan. Our goal is to help you resume your normal life as soon as possible. Let’s look at a few common questions that we run into regarding auto accidents.
What are the most common auto accident injuries?
The most common injuries in car accidents include whiplash, cervical herniated discs, fractures, broken bones, back pain, and others depending on the severity of the accident. Your chiropractor will conduct a thorough examination to assess the injury before recommending the appropriate treatment. It is crucial to receive prompt chiropractic care after being involved in a car accident to speed up the recovery process and minimize any long-term effects.
How does whiplash happen in an auto accident?
Whiplash is a neck injury that many people often do not realize they have suffered. It happens when the neck is rapidly and forcefully bent in one direction and then another. In a car accident, whiplash can be particularly dangerous because the force of the impact causes the head and neck to suddenly jerk forward and backward. If you feel pain in your neck after an auto accident, you may have whiplash.
What can I expect from my first chiropractic appointment?
After a car accident, most people cannot think straight and feel overwhelmed. You may also be in pain and unsure of what to expect. Fortunately, at Cutitta Chiropractic, we will conduct a thorough examination and explain the results to you in terms that you can understand. We want to make sure that you are well informed about the treatment process, so you can make an informed decision before proceeding with any recommended therapy.
