Common Automobile Accident Injuries Treated by Chiropractic Care
While some injuries that result from automobile accidents are easy to recover from, others may take months or even years of therapy and treatment. Below are some common automobile accident injuries that we treat:
Auto accident injuries are one of the leading causes of spinal and whiplash injuries. These types of injuries should be treated properly, or accidents could lead to long term, chronic pain. Learn more about whiplash, car accident injuries and chiropractic care.
The neck’s susceptibility to injury is due in part to biomechanics. Activities and events that affect cervical biomechanics include extended sitting, repetitive movement, accidents, falls and blows to the body or head, normal aging, and everyday wear and tear. Read more.
The shoulder joint is the most frequently used joint in the body because it moves every time you move your arm. It also has the widest range of motion of any other joint in your body. This makes it one of the most vulnerable joints in the body. Learn more about rotator cuff/shoulder injuries.
Back pain can range from a dull, constant ache to a sudden, sharp pain that makes it hard to move. It can start quickly if you fall or lift something too heavy, or it can get worse slowly. Read more about the different types of back pain and effective treatment.
Problems with the discs of the back are common. Intervertebral discs are the spongy cushions found between the bones of the spine, part of which can change position and touch nerves, causing pain. This can be caused by trauma as well as long term wear and tear. Read more.
A headache is pain or discomfort in the head, scalp, or neck. Common types of headaches include tension headaches, migraine or cluster headaches, sinus headaches, and headaches that begin in your neck. Read more.
Injuries from automobile accidents can sometimes show up days or weeks after the accident, so visiting your chiropractor as soon as possible is recommended. Identifying problems and starting early treatments and adjustments can help prevent any issues from influencing other parts of the body resulting in more pain and prolonging the healing process.

I used to get migraines frequently, so I thought I’d give Superior Spine a try. I’ve been going to Superior Spine for close to two years now. Ever since I started getting a monthly massage and adjustment, my migraines have lessened immensely! I recommend Superior Spine!!
I can't speak highly enough of Dr. Wensink's practice. After hurting my back about a year ago, I have been visiting on a regular basis and they are always accommodating with scheduling. Dr. Wensink takes the time to get to know you as a patient, and asks thoughtful questions to ensure that his treatment meets your needs. The practice is conveniently located and with occasional Saturdays makes it easy to find a time to visit.
