But It Was Just a Fender Bender

Young man after wreckIn the Twin Cities, snow and ice storms usually produce a massive number of accidents each year. We could see upwards of 500 auto accidents in a particular storm. As their vehicles skid on slippery roads, many people end up plowing into each other here in the wintertime. As lots of these incidents occur at low speeds, drivers may think that, while their car may have minor fender damage, their body didn’t sustain any damage.

The fact is while there may not be a lot of damage to your vehicle a lot of energy is released into the occupants.

Some of the most common types of auto injuries we see include the following:

  • Whiplash
  • Headaches
  • Concussion
  • Bulging discs

The Importance of Getting Checked Right Away

Unfortunately, people do sustain injuries as a result of an auto accident. But because they don’t have many symptoms right away, they don’t think they’re injured. What happens is a few years later, they start having significant problems. By that time, they have developed degeneration and arthritis as a result of auto accident injuries.

That’s why it’s so important to get checked right away so we can catch anything early.

What to Expect

When you come in to get checked following an auto accident, we’ll take a highly detailed case history that’s specific to the accident. Doing so will help us to get a better understanding of the injury. As long as the auto accident didn’t involve spinal fractures, we can provide you with the care you need to heal. We also will screen to make sure you don’t have any underlying injury that would prevent us from providing you with chiropractic care. In addition, we will take X-rays to give us a complete picture of your injuries.

How We Can Help

Rest assured that 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 chiropractor will craft a custom-tailored plan detailing the number of visits needed to help you heal.

If you’ve been involved in an auto accident, give us a call today.
