The Importance of Seeing a Chiropractor for an Auto Accident Injury

An automobile accident can happen in mere seconds, but if you suffered an auto accident injury, the repercussions can last a lifetime. Such injuries can cause chronic health issues and damage to the musculoskeletal system, which is why it's vitally important to see a chiropractor after getting into an automobile accident.

How Our Car Accident Chiropractor in Irvine Can Help

If you have been in an automobile accident, our car accident chiropractor in Irvine can help. Our chiropractor will be able to help you recover from some of the most common injuries suffered as a result of a car accident. Some of these common injuries include:

  • Whiplash
  • Pulled muscles
  • Sciatica
  • Back pain and an injured back

You may not feel the effects of an injury right away. Some injuries, like whiplash, might not be realized until a couple of hours after the accident. In some instances, it can take 24 hours for symptoms to appear. Even if you do not feel any pain, or you do not think you have been injured, it is still important to be seen by a chiropractor. Undetected injuries can cause problems later on down the road.

Generally speaking, chiropractic care involves using natural methods to realign the spine and to encourage the body's innate ability to repair and heal itself. When it comes to treating an auto accident injury, our chiropractor in Irvine uses different methods. The type of treatment will largely depend on the type of injury that was sustained and also the severity of the injury. More often than not, one type of treatment our chiropractor will use is spinal manipulation. Other methods we may utilize include acupuncture and massage therapy. 

Recovering From an Injury

We understand that an injury sustained in a car accident can cause pain, discomfort, and at times be debilitating. Such injuries can also cause frustration as they can prevent you from doing your normal, everyday activities and even cause you to miss work.

Receiving the appropriate treatment for your injury is the first step of the recovery process. Our car accident chiropractor in Irvine can help you improve your recovery process; as well as reduce the amount of pain you are feeling and increase your mobility. We can also recommend corrective exercises that will help to speed up your recovery and get your body back into shape. If you want to find ways to achieve optimum health, we can do that, too.

How do you say thank you to Superman!!! I have suffered with vertigo for 3 weeks, and been scared to death to drive or sailing my boat in the harbor. I even went to see another chiropractor last week, who adjusted me and bragged about himself and how great he was, but what a waste he was. My vertigo was worse the next day and he apparently didn't know the correct treatment. Desperate to find another chiropractor and also calling ENT MD's, I stumbled across this very local chiropractor, Dr. Rick. I called to be sure he knew how to do a specific treatment I learned was ONLY for vertigo patients. He was so personable, his receptionist gave him my call and he spoke to me, explaining what needed to be done, and that he had treated it many times before. When I spoke to him on the phone, I knew that he really did know this specific treatment just for vertigo, since he called it by name. Finding Dr. Rick was miracle!!
