Gaining Insight on Auto Injury Care Options

Gaining Insight on Auto Injury Care Options - El Paso Chiropractor

Automobile accidents are often unpredictable circumstances which can involve many complications. Whether it’s a minor or severe collision, many individuals are forced to deal with all the implications that come after being involved in an auto accident on their own, a frustrating process that frequently ends with victims being on the losing end of their benefits. Injured and without a car, approaching the best course of action following an auto accident doesn’t need to be a difficult circumstance and we know the best procedures to help you recover from your situation.


According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), approximately 2.6 million individuals are injured each year in automobile accidents, accounting for 95 percent of all injury causing accidents on the roads. During a car crash, the sudden force of the impact can commonly cause subluxations or spinal misalignments in the body, a condition where the complex structures surrounding the spine are affected, distorting the normal alignment of the vertebra, irritating nerves, ligaments, and discs, overall affecting their natural function and your health. Spinal misalignments due to auto injuries can occur anywhere on the spine depending on the type of collision but whiplash, a neck or cervical spine injury, is one of the most common injuries associated with auto accidents. Whiplash-type injuries occur when there’s been an abrupt, back-and-forth jerking motion of the head in any direction. As a result, the soft tissues around the cervical spine extend beyond the typical range of motion, damaging the complex structures of the neck. After suffering an injury from an automobile accident, many individuals may experience symptoms within 24 hours following the car crash while others may not experience symptoms until after a few days which can then last for several weeks and turn into chronic pain.  


Dealing with the problems that arise from an auto collision can be one of the most stressful aspects of modern life. Those who’ve experienced an automobile accident may often be hurt, confused, and scared, not knowing the best ways to handle their specific situations. Foremost, after being involved in an auto accident, it’s important to seek immediate medical attention to diagnose any possible injuries or aggravated conditions that could ultimately alter your lifestyle. Chiropractic care is an effective form of alternate treatment that many individuals frequently seek to treat their injuries and symptoms following the aftermath of an auto collision. As a chiropractor who’s been practicing for about 25 years, I’ve treated thousands of people who’ve been previously involved in an automobile accident and who’ve been in desperate need of treatment and relief for their injuries. Chiropractors aren’t simply interested in treating an individual’s condition but also, chiropractic care helps enhance and restore the person’s lifestyle by improving the natural function of their bodies.


After diagnosing for possible injuries or the early development of a condition resulting from an auto accident, a chiropractor will utilize a series of spinal adjustments and manual manipulations according to each individual’s needs to gradually help them recover naturally. Chiropractic treatment will focus on re-aligning the spine to relieve the stress and pressure being placed on the spinal nerves, bones, muscles, and other tissues of the body due to a possible subluxation. As with many other forms of treatment, time and patience is often required to properly heal from your injuries.

Personal Note:

Throughout the years I’ve treated many individuals, it’s always been a priority for me to accommodate to each person’s best interests and help them understand the best choice of options for their entitled benefits following an auto collision. With my experience, I can offer guidance and recommendations on the leading specialists that can support you with your individual automobile accident case as well as help you recover from any possible injuries or conditions resulting after the auto collision.
