Auto Accident Chiropractic in Oakdale

auto accident neck painRegarding vehicular accidents, there’s a common misconception that you won’t sustain damage to your body unless you’ve been in a high-speed collision. That’s not true. The Spine Research Institute of San Diego conducted research involving live crash testing with human volunteers in the vehicles.

They measured acceleration and injuries that occurred during very low-speed collisions. They found that yes, you can sustain significant injury without a lot of damage to the vehicles.

The Importance of Getting Checked

After an accident, a lot of people will feel sore for a few days and think they weren’t injured. The problem is there are misalignments present that start to degenerate. Two years later, you may have major problems like headaches, arthritis, numbness and tingling down the arms. It’s from the accident, but it takes a while for that degeneration to show up.

It’s always better to be safe than sorry, so we encourage you to come in and get checked.

Benefits of Receiving Chiropractic Care Post-Auto Accident

  • Improves back and body pain
  • Reduces or eliminates the need for painkillers
  • Helps to prevent long-term problems
  • Eases whiplash pain
  • Helps to avoid stiffness due to scar tissue

We would take a more detailed case history specific to the accident. Doing so allows us to better understand the mechanism of injury and the extent of the injuries we’re dealing with. As long as the auto accident didn’t involve spinal fractures, we can handle your case. We will screen for that to ensure there’s no underlying injury that would prevent us from providing you with chiropractic care. X-rays will be taken to give us a complete picture of your injuries.

We will start with gentle chiropractic care. Once the initial inflammation has subsided, we will refer you to one of our massage therapists for deep tissue therapeutic massage. Based on your injuries, your doctor will create a customized care plan detailing the number of visits needed to help you heal.

As Minnesota follows the no-fault car insurance system, a patient’s personal injury protection (PIP coverage) will pay for the cost of their care. We will bill your insurance company directly.
