Most people who get injured in car accidents do not even think to see a chiropractor. Chiropractic care after a car accident is ideal for people seeking a non-surgical and drug-free solution.

Auto accident injuries to the back and neck can occur with or without external, visible injuries. In fact, many of the car accident injury cases we see on a daily basis are without external cuts and scrapes. When this happens, the individual may not know he or she has been injured until they start experiencing pain, which can be several days after the accident.
Back and Neck Pain
Herniated, Bulging, and Slipped Discs
Back and neck pain can be caused by strains and sprains, misaligned vertebrae, herniated discs, and whiplash. If you have recently been involved in a car accident, you should get examined by our Auto Accident Injury Center in North Wales PA for back and neck injuries. This is important even if you are not currently experiencing any symptoms.
When you back is severely jarred, it can cause your discs to slip out of place. This is known as a bulging or herniated disc. The disc material can put pressure on nerves and soft tissues, causing lower back pain.
Whiplash can take 24 to 48 hours before the first symptoms appear. This injury causes severe headaches, neck pain and stiffness and upper back pain. Severe cases can cause light sensitivity, blurry vision and numbness and tingling in the arms.
Dr. Shin who specialized in auto accident injury can diagnose and treat your musculoskeletal car accident injuries. Car accidents can misalign your vertebrae, causing back and neck pain as well as headaches.
Chiropractic adjustments form the core of his treatment programs. They are designed to push your misaligned vertebrae back into their proper positions. When the vertebrae are misaligned, they can cause inflammation of the soft tissues, pain and nerve signal interruption.
Core training seeks to strengthen your back and core muscles so that they are able to adequately support your spine. Chiropractic adjustments help realign your vertebrae, but it is your back and core muscles that keep your spine stable. As your core muscles increase in strength, you will gradually notice a reduction in pain.
Strains, sprains and muscles soreness respond well to massage therapy. Receiving massages along with your other chiropractic treatments can decrease your healing time by reducing general muscle pain, improving circulation and helping your muscles release lactic acid.
By utilizing all these techniques, he can heal your auto accident injuries without medication. In many instances, he can help you avoid costly surgeries and invasive procedures with long recovery times.
Freguantly Asked Question
WHAT ARE SOME COMMON AUTO ACCIDENT INJURIES?
One common injury resulting from an auto accident is whiplash. The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) reports that around two-thirds of the individuals involved in an auto accident develop whiplash symptoms. We treat people with whiplash symptoms in the Greater Philadephia area.
Another common injury is back injury. Both upper C-spine injuries and lower back injuries are common. Remember that your spinal column extends throughout the length of your back, and injury to the back is potentially serious. At Shin Family Auto Accident Chiropractic Center, we offer back pain treatment, according to your individual diagnosis and treatment needs.
Soft tissue injuries often result in painful swelling and bruising. Sprains, strains, torn ligaments or tendons are other examples of common auto accident injuries.
There is a multitude of other possible auto accident injuries, including injuries to the extremities, neck, and head. Some people experience PTSD and other psychological conditions.
When you experience auto accident injuries, Dr. Seungmook Shin has the professional training and experience to diagnose injuries and offer appropriate auto accident injury treatment.
HOW LONG CAN IT TAKE FOR AUTO ACCIDENT INJURIES TO APPEAR?
Some individuals likely assume they are okay immediately after an auto accident as long as they see no visible injuries. Many types of injuries are internal and not visible, while others do not immediately result in symptoms.
Symptoms appearing days, even weeks later, potentially result in a variety of symptoms, increasing the need for whiplash treatment, back pain treatment or other forms of auto accident injury treatment.
The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) reveals that about 20 percent of individuals with acute back pain, or relatively short-term pain, go on to develop chronic pain “With persistent symptoms” at one year. This means that although you possibly assume that your back pain after a motor vehicle accident will likely resolve without back pain treatment, you risk progressing to more serious and longer lasting symptoms.
Similarly, the ACA points out that most individuals with whiplash do not develop symptoms until up to 48 hours after their injury.
