Auto Accident Injury Treatment in Chesapeake VA with our Chiropractic Team

The Most Common Types of Auto Accident Injury

Auto accidents including low-speed fender benders or high impact collisions can cause a variety of injuries affecting virtually any part of the body. A few of the ones we see most commonly at our chiropractic clinic include:

    • Whiplash: neck pain syndrome caused by forceful flexion and extension of the neck and head, which can lead to symptoms like neck pain, shoulder and arm numbness, headaches, and jaw pain
    • Nerve compression: sciatica and cervical radiculopathy are common types of nerve impingement syndromes that happen if a joint or spinal disc becomes injured or misaligned during a car crash, which may lead to compression of a spinal nerve root
    • Joint dislocation: when joints are forcefully misaligned, pain, stiffness, or even hypermobility/instability can occur

The Importance of Consulting with a Chiropractor after a Car Crash Even if You're "Pain-Free"

We hear it all the time: "I was in a car crash a few weeks ago, but I feel fine." Unfortunately, you may have underlying inflammation and tissue damage without realizing it! This is because auto accident injury can be masked by elevated stress hormones, which are often slow to return to their pre-accident levels, especially if you're dealing with the financial, mental, and emotional stress of a traumatic accident!

In our experience, many people don't realize that their "unrelated" problems such as insomnia, anxiousness, fatigue, irritability, difficulty concentrating, or ringing in the ears could be related to their car crash, too. Our chiropractic services focus on holistic whole person wellness and can address these issues naturally.

  • ""I first came to Atlantic Chiropractic 5 years ago with a pinched nerve in my neck. I was in so much pain, I could not even move my head. Dr. Eric diagnosed the problem almost immediately and confirmed it with the EMG. He set up a treatment plan and told me I probably would not feel significant relief for a good two weeks. I appreciated his thoroughness, expertise, and honesty. As it turned out, I was actually pain free in one week! I always refer my friends to Dr. Eric/Atlantic Chiropractic and Rehabilitation for the most trusted effective chiropractic care.""
