Why Choose Chiropractic as an Auto Injury Treatment?

Written By Taschler Spine & Rehab on May 30, 2018

Suffering from pain in your lower back or spine? Was this onset by a motor vehicle accident (MVA)?

Then it may be time to seek chiropractic care for your auto injury treatment. 

According to studies, chiropractic care is the go-to treatment for a large number of people who’ve been involved in an MVA.


Research demonstrates that over 90% of people enjoy improved symptoms when visiting their local chiropractor for whiplash. 

Finding an Effective Auto Injury Treatment 

How effective chiropractic is for treating injuries caused by MVAs is highlighted by the fact that 40% of people visit their chiropractor for help with back pain and almost a third seek their treatment for spine pain.

And with your spine being placed in such a dangerous position when you’re in a car accident, it’s imperative that an effective, safe, and proven treatment is used. Leaving it to “heal on its own” or undergoing an ineffective treatment plan could play a significant role in how your back heals, perhaps causing you even more pain and leading to chronic problems in the future. 

Sadly, some people still do believe the aches and pains they sustain in a car accident can be “walked off,” but for the majority of people, this won’t work. 

Therefore, if you’re experiencing pains in your neck, legs, feet, or hips, your spine needs looking at straight away. Equally, blurred vision, sudden headaches, and dizziness could be a telltale sign you’ve got whiplash. 

Even if these symptoms don’t sound familiar to you – it’s best to visit your chiropractor in Fairfax to ensure there are no serious underlying problems.  

Understanding Chiropractic Care and What It Involves

You may be apprehensive about your initial visit to the chiropractors, but you’ll soon feel at ease when you meet with these trained professionals. 

They’re qualified to treat a variety of conditions that relate to the spine, back, neck, and all of their interconnecting muscles and tissues. That’s why they can provide an accurate diagnosis when you’ve been involved in an MVA. 

At your first visit, they’ll conduct a physical examination of your entire back before explaining what treatment is necessary to alleviate your symptoms. 

This tailored treatment program may involve realigning your spine, which means they’ll need to relax the area before using gentle force to move your spinal bones back into their correct position. 

You may need to visit your chiropractor for several of these treatments – but you should start to notice an immediate improvement, even after your very first session.
