Auto Accident Injuries Treated in Webster and Rochester

The pain from auto accident injuries may appear rapidly or it may not be noticeable for a few days. You can get a more accurate idea of your injuries after an evaluation with one of our chiropractors. Some of the injuries from auto accidents that our team cares for include:

  • Whiplash – caused by your head moving forward and backward quickly due to impact. This may cause muscle strains, vertebrae misalignments or disc issues. Your symptoms may appear as headaches, neck pain, blurry vision, upper back pain, irritability and fatigue. Gentle adjustments to the vertebrae of your neck and upper back reduce your symptoms and position your neck to heal. An aligned spine also increases circulation which lessens inflammation. Plus, your nerve signals operate at a higher level which helps your body heal.
  • Headaches – if you have hit your head, a headache may be from a concussion. Headaches also appear with whiplash. Chiropractic adjustments position the vertebrae of your neck to eliminate your headaches.
  • Back pain – the jarring from the impact may strain your spine. If a vertebrae is out of alignment, gentle adjustments re-position your spine. If the accident has caused trauma to a disc, gentle adjustments also help your discs return to the correct spaces.
  • Neck pain – this may be from impact, whiplash or the seatbelt pressing against your neck. Our chiropractors evaluate your symptoms and determine which chiropractic techniques will reduce your pain and set your body to heal.
  • Shoulder pain – often caused by the seatbelt or contact with the window, shoulder pain is reduced through gentle adjustments to the joint. This lessens the pull on the surrounding muscles and encourages your body to send healing cells to the area.
  • Chest discomfort – this is also caused by a seatbelt and will be evaluated by our chiropractors. We can show you exercises to lessen your pain and begin healing.

Common Auto Accident Injuries

If you were in an auto accident, it’s important to get checked out by our chiropractor serving Rochester and Webster. We’ll inspect you for common injuries and provide effective holistic treatment that heals you without medication. 

Common Auto Accident Injuries

An auto accident places your body under a great deal of pressure. Injuries are common in your knees from hitting the dashboard, in your shoulder due to your seat belt, and in your neck from the pressure of the crash. The most common auto accident injuries are: 

  • Neck pain – Your neck can suffer soft tissue injuries from the crash, or develop subluxations as the cervical spine shifts in the auto accident. Neck pain symptoms include stiffness, soreness, and reduced range of motion. 
  • Whiplash – Whiplash is a specific type of neck strain that has a delayed onset. Along with neck pain, symptoms include fatigue, confusion, pins and needles, muscle spasms, and pain radiating into the limbs. 
  • Shoulder pain – Shoulder pain after an auto accident may be due to a torn rotator cuff, muscle injuries from the impact, or referred pain from a neck injury. 
  • Knee pain – “Dashboard knee” indicates knee pain from the knee cap hitting the dashboard in an auto accident. 

How Chiropractic Treats Auto Accident Injuries

Chiropractic adjustments can treat these injuries and alleviate your pain. So if you feel pain in your neck, shoulder or knee after an auto accident, we encourage you to come into our chiropractic clinic for a thorough evaluation! We use the Chiropractic Biophysics Technique, which starts with x-rays to check your musculoskeletal health. 

Once we diagnose any injuries, we will begin treating you using chiropractic adjustments. These adjustments bring your spine, joints and ligaments back into alignment to reduce inflammation naturally. Our adjustments reduce pain and promote your body’s natural recovery response. 

At O’Dell Family Chiropractic, your initial evaluation is just $27. Reserve your evaluation online or call our Rochester chiropractor at 585-671-9210 or our Webster chiropractor at (585) 672-9406 to begin treatment for auto accident injuries.
