How does Chiropractic care help after an auto accident?

The sooner, the better! Don’t live with pain from your car wreck, come in and get treated right away so you can be on your way back to normal!
What if I was just in a low speed auto accident?

Why see a chiropractor after an auto accident?

I’ve already seen my doctor and been cleared, should I still see a chiropractor?
Injuries are not always obvious, like broken bones, cuts, and bruises. There are hidden injuries, such as stretched muscles and tendons. These are not seen on X-ray. The key is not to wait for the pain to seek help. Ignoring the fact that you have been in an accident, and have been traumatized/assaulted, can lead to long-term pain, decreased motion, restrictions, and scar tissue.
