If you have been involved in a car accident, no matter how serious or minor, you should always consult your chiropractor afterward. Even if you feel just fine following your accident, there still may be an underlying personal injury that needs to be addressed before they become more serious. In today’s blog here at Core Chiropractic + Wellness in Bakersfield, we talk about a few of the many reasons that you should see a chiropractor after you’ve had an auto accident.

Whiplash Specialist

Here at Core Chiropractic + Wellness, we have experienced professionals like Dr. Berry who hold advanced certifications and have extensive training from the Spine Research Institute of San Diego. During his time at the SRISD, Dr. Berry gained the knowledge he needed to become a whiplash and traumatic brain injury expert related to auto accidents. This means that after you’ve had an auto accident, you can trust that our personal injury chiropractic experts can quickly and efficiently identify and treat any chiropractic problem that arises. Common symptoms of personal injury after an auto accident include but are not limited to: 

  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Muscle stiffness
  • Headaches
  • Muscle spasms
  • Whiplash
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • And more

Even if you aren’t experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, there is a chance that you may still have a personal injury. After it is safe to do so, we recommend checking in with a chiropractic professional to ensure that you don’t have whiplash or any misalignments in your spine. Reach out to us at Core Chiropractic + Wellness in Bakersfield today to schedule your personal injury appointment with Dr. Berry or one of our other chiropractic professionals. 

No Out-of-Pocket Cost

Another reason to see a chiropractor after you’ve been in an auto accident is that there is no risk and no out-of-pocket costs. In most situations, our chiropractic office in Bakersfield doesn’t require any co-pays, deductibles, or payment from you at all. And if in our evaluation we find that you need medical treatment or procedure that is outside of our area of expertise, we can refer you to a physician at no cost to you. Much of the time, you will not have any upfront costs for physician’s treatment either!

Non-Invasive and Natural

Chiropractic treatment for personal injury is a completely non-invasive and 100% natural treatment option. We don’t use any drugs or perform any surgeries, all of our methods focus on realigning the spine externally and relaxing tensed up muscles and joints. Our treatment removes obstacles that may be slowing down your body from healing itself from your personal injury. Tensed up muscles and misalignment of your spine can be painful. Tight muscles get sore and a misaligned spine can create constant stress and pressure on parts of the body that aren’t prepared for. Chiropractic for personal injury helps to eliminate these pain points so that you can recover more quickly and comfortably. 

Shorten Your Recovery Time

After a car accident, your muscles may be stiff and sore, you may have some neck and back pain, and you probably just want to rest so you can start to recover. As time passes, if your injuries are minor, they will often start to slowly get better. More serious injuries may only get worse though with the passage of time. Chiropractic work for personal injury can help you to recover more quickly than you would with rest alone, and in most cases, prevent your injuries from worsening. We can do this through spinal manipulation and massage therapy techniques that help to restore your mobility more quickly, relieve your pain, and relax your muscles.
