Types of Auto Accident Injuries

An auto accident injury can range from mild to severe and may involve several structures in the body, including the muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, bones, nerves, spinal discs, and internal organs.

Common auto accident injuries we treat at our Pella chiropractic clinic include: 

  • muscle strains and ligament sprains, especially in the shoulder, neck, back, and hips
  • whiplash
  • concussions
  • sciatica (sciatic nerve compression the lower back)
  • disc herniation or disc bulge
  • "dashboard knee" (blunt force trauma to the knee joint and surrounding structures)
  • shoulder pain 
  • generalized back pain and stiffness

Why You Might Not Notice an Auto Accident Injury Right Away

It's not uncommon for people to walk away from an accident thinking nothing is physically wrong, only to experience worsening pain, stiffness, and other symptoms days or even weeks later.

This can happen when a person's hormonal response to trauma (the "fight or flight" response) temporarily blocks pain. Once enough time has passed after a car accident and a person's adrenaline has returned to baseline levels, pain and other signs of injury can begin to show up. 

Chiropractic Care for an Auto Accident Injury: What to Expect

Car accidents can put stress on a person's entire body, even if only one area of the body appears to be injured. This is why our Pella chiropractor team takes a holistic approach to auto accident injury treatment.

When you come to see us for help after a car accident, we'll take the time to assess your posture, range of motion, nervous system function, and more. This helps us get an idea of your overall health and pinpoint specific areas of inflammation or restrictions.

Based on our examination results, we can implement specific techniques and services that are geared toward addressing your acute injuries and optimizing your body's innate self-healing abilities. Popular treatments we offer for our patients with auto accident injury include:

  • chiropractic care including spinal adjustments, trigger point therapy, and Advanced Muscle Integration Technique 
  • personalized stretches and exercises
  • lifestyle and nutritional guidance to complement your plan of care
