The Top 7 Reasons to Schedule A Visit With A Chiropractor Immediately After An Auto Accident

1. Chiropractors Are Experts In Auto Injuries

Dr. Desiree has plenty of experience treating patients who have been in car accidents. She knows how to treat you. Chiropractors are trained in treating soft tissue injuries – the most common injuries suffered in auto accidents. Remember, even if there was little damage to your car you may have sustained injuries and should be examined by a professional.

2. The Proven Way To Prevent Your Auto Injury From Becoming Chronic

After an auto accident you many feel pain in your neck, back or joints. Soreness, stiffness and pain, if left untreated, will turn into chronic problems. If you’ve been to the hospital or seen your primary care physician and been cleared of any life threatening injuries your next step is an appointment with Dr. Desiree at Desired Health Chiropractic. Dr. Desiree will give you a full examination and give recommendations for treatment.

3. Whiplash Is The Worst, But We Can Help

Forceful, rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck – think of a whip cracking – during a car accident causes whiplash. Whiplash most often occurs during a rear-end auto accident. Without proper chiropractic care many people have a hard time recovering from whiplash and returning to normal activities because of whiplash-induced neck pain. If you’ve been in a crash and have neck pain, stiffness or headaches you should be evaluated for whiplash. Whiplash can also produce problems with concentrating, blurred vision, fatigue, and ringing in the ears. Most people with whiplash recover soon when seeing a Chiropractor – our treatments are gentle and effective. If you’ve got whiplash you’ll want to schedule an appointment with Dr. Desiree.

4. Only A Chiropractor Can Do This

A serious car crash causes the ligaments and muscles in your spine to be stretched and creates micro-tears. X-rays or MRI scans aren’t able to pick-up these injuries, but the damage causes inflammation. You may not have felt pain right after the crash, but woke up with a stiff neck. This is caused by the body’s inflammation response to these micro tears. The good news is chiropractic adjustments actually helps the body reduce inflammation so you can heal.

5. The Truth About Chiropractic Care And Pain Relief

It isn’t uncommon to feel pain following a car crash, but you don’t have to live with it. Many patients that visit Desired Health Chiropractic in Anoka feel pain relief after their first visit. A medical doctor may just prescribe painkillers that mask the pain and can be habit-forming. Dr. Desiree relieves pain at the source so that your body can heal naturally. Numb or tingling feelings caused by a herniated disk? Neck pain and swelling caused by whiplash? We can help you get better faster.

6. We’ll Restore Mobility After Your Auto Accident

Soreness and decreased mobility are often experienced after an auto accident. Are you less limber than you were prior to your crash? Limping around? Trouble tying those shoelaces? Dr. Desiree’s chiropractic care can help you regain mobility so you can get back to doing what you enjoy to do and forget about your accident. She will also provide you with additional exercises you can do at home to maintain your mobility.

7. So Affordable Its Free

Your car insurance will cover 100% of your chiropractic care due to an auto injury following a car crash! Health care costs continue to increase every year. The first thought many people have before they visit a new doctor is, “How much is this going to cost me?” But after an injury many people worry about health care costs more than their own health. But don’t worry, if you were hurt in an auto accident your chiropractic care will be covered.
