It's very important to have your spine checked immediately after an auto accident.
Any body part that's jarred or thrown forward unexpectedly can sustain microscopic stretching and tearing of ligaments, and the ones that support the head and neck are particularly vulnerable.
Since chiropractors specialize in the care of joints, muscles, nerves, and connective tissue, it just makes sense to make an appointment for a thorough evaluation following a collision.
Grusky Chiropractic Center has extensive experience in the detection and correction of injuries related to any kind of vehicular accident.
What Are the Symptoms Related to a Car Accident Injury?
- Headaches, minor to major
- Neck pain, stiffness, or soreness with a noticeable decrease in range of motion
- Dizziness, nausea, or vertigo
- Numbness or tingling into the arms or hands
- Swelling or tenderness over the joints
- Low back pain or stiffness
- Anxiety and/or difficulty sleeping
If you experience any of these symptoms, it means that structural damage has occurred in the form of vertebral misalignment, accompanied by the stretching and tearing of ligaments, tendons or muscles. It's important to correct all misalignment as quickly as possible so that the body, as it undergoes tissue regeneration, will heal in optimal alignment.

You Can Be Unaware of Injury for Days, Weeks, or Months
The panic mode your body enters after even a minor accident releases endorphins, which temporarily numb your body from pain. Research and our experience in treating thousands of patients over the years demonstrate that many people don't manifest the symptoms of a car crash till weeks, months, or even years later. It's always wise to be proactive with your health and avoid the potential pitfalls of a chronic condition.
Injuries Can Be Caused by the Minor to the Major
Even in the case of minor injury from a "fender-bender," it can lead to chronic symptoms if left untreated. Research shows that more than half of all whiplash cases occur when there's no damage to the vehicle!
Immediate Attention Is Essential to Protect Your Legal Rights
Insurance companies don't understand that injury-related symptoms can remain hidden, without manifestation, for many weeks, months, or even years. This is why it's so important to have a chiropractic check-up before the 14-day statute of limitations mandated by almost all insurance policies. We will also work directly with your attorney; it's vital to be proactive in the prevention of potentially chronic problems.
