Auto Accident Injury FAQs

An auto accident can lead to a great deal of emotional, mental, and physical trauma. At Diamond State Chiropractic, we’re here to help you through it. To get started, we answered some of the most common questions accident victims have below.  


What are the most common auto accident injuries?

Whiplash is the most common auto accident injury. It occurs when your head is whipped back and forth. Other common injuries include back pain, herniated discs, nerve compression, breaks, fractures, misalignment, muscle tension, and neck and shoulder injuries.  

What are the signs of an auto accident injury?

Some of the injuries mentioned above have some pretty obvious symptoms, like pain in the injured area. However, other symptoms aren’t so obvious:

  • Headaches
  • Neck stiffness
  • Difficulty concentrating or sleeping
  • Numbness or tingling in the extremities
  • The trouble with your vision
  • Unexplained nervousness or depression
  • Unexplained weight loss or weight gain
  • Digestive problems

Just about any new symptoms can be linked to an auto accident injury, so it’s essential to seek chiropractic care immediately.  

Why does my back hurt after my auto accident?

Some accident victims find it strange that they have back pain after an accident – especially if the accident was minor. The truth is, though, that there are many ways the back can be injured in a crash.

Consider how much force is typically involved in a crash. When your body is met with that amount of force, it typically moves beyond its normal range rather quickly. This can easily lead to tears in the muscles or ligaments, misalignment of the spine, nerve compression, and more.

It’s also common to think that if you were driving slowly, there wouldn’t be much force. Imagine that you are running just one mile per hour, come around a corner, and unexpectedly run into a wall. Though you weren’t moving that fast, the sudden impact could easily lead to many injuries.

Can chiropractic care help?

Chiropractic care is one of the safest, most effective methods for treating auto accident injuries. Most of these injuries occur in the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractors specialize in treating this system through natural methods.

For example, misalignment is treated through adjustments, which realign the spine. If a nerve is compressed, it’s typically treated with spinal decompression therapy, which gently stretches the spine to relieve compression. As these techniques directly treat the source of pain, you can achieve lasting relief.
