If you’ve recently been in an auto accident, our doctors at Summit Chiropractic and Sports Institute are one of Spokane’s most trusted source for relief from neck, back, or extremity pain. Seeking chiropractic treatment after an auto accident is one of the most important things you can do for your health, and yet many people neglect to take this crucial first step towards recovery.
The symptoms we most commonly see after car accidents include whiplash and neck pain, and lower back pain. Soreness or stiffness in the neck or back may be the first signs of injury after an auto accident. This initial pain may seem insignificant, but may be symptoms of an underlying issue. In many accidents, there may be no damage to the vehicle, and you are left with only stiffness and soreness, leading you to believe a trip to the doctor is not obligatory. When the spinal muscles or ligaments are strained in an accident, your body will need time to heal. Without treatment, your spine can be misaligned or unstable, so over time tissue and ligaments can heal over the spine resulting in more severe pain. Going through an auto accident can be very traumatic and our doctors understand this. They are here to help you overcome this incident.
