Auto Accident Related

Chiropractic is often the best treatment for auto accident related injuries such as, whiplash. Auto insurance often entirely covers chiropractic care for those injuries.

Dr. Devine has been successfully treating whiplash and soft tissue injuries sustained in automobile accidents for over 15 years. He uses specific chiropractic adjustments, physical therapies, and strengthening exercises to help restore proper motion and re-position individual spinal bones to promote proper healing.

Whiplash is one of the most commonly received injuries from riding in a car that is involved in an accident. Even minor fender benders can produce a permanent injury. When the head is suddenly jerked back and forth beyond its normal limits, muscles and ligaments supporting the spine and head can be overstretched or torn. Vertebrae can be forced out of their normal position, reducing range of motion and discs between spinal bones can bulge, tear or rupture leading to permanent injury and accelerated degeneration of the spine.

The resulting instability of the spine and soft tissues can result in headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, shoulder, arm, and hand pain, reduced ability to turn and bend, and lower back problems.

Other symptoms of whiplash and soft tissue injury include:

  • Numbness or tingling in any area of the body
  • Stiff neck
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Difficulty sitting or standing for long periods of time
  • Irritability
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Inability to concentrate
If you have even one of the symptoms above, and have been in an accident, you could have a soft tissue injury.

Following an automobile accident, the body attempts to adapt. As a result, symptoms may not appear until weeks or even months later. Pain pills won’t heal inflamed tendons, muscle relaxers won’t heal torn muscles, and cervical collars won’t restore graceful spinal curves. Chiropractic care, coupled with a specific exercise program is the best treatment for patients injured in a motor vehicle accident

Following a motor vehicle accident, you can take the first step toward regaining your health by scheduling a complimentary consultation with Dr. Devine today.
