Seeing an Orthopedist or a Chiropractor After a Car Accident

Benefits of Orthopedic or Chiropractic Care After a Car Crash

Being involved in a car accident can cause a multitude of injuries — including many that involve your spine, neck, and other major joints and muscle groups. Immediately following an accident, your doctor may recommend seeking additional treatment from either an orthopedic specialist or a chiropractor. Here’s why:

Chiropractic Solutions

Most of the injuries that occur following a car crash happen to your neck and back. A chiropractor specializing in car accident injuries will carefully assess your situation and can help treat a range of conditions — from whiplash to rotator cuff injuries, strains, and separating discs.

Chiropractic care focuses on musculoskeletal and nervous system injuries like these. Through adjustments and additional treatments, your chiropractor will be able to restore function to your neck and spine as well as restore blood flow and reduce inflammation to help your muscles heal.

Preventing Degenerative Diseases

An orthopedic doctor treats patients with injuries of the bones, joints, or nerves. Following a car accident, your orthopedist will help treat the immediate results of your crash such as fractures, breaks, and tears — but they’ll also help prevent degenerative diseases. These conditions cause tissues and organs to worsen over time and can lead to chronic pain or the need for extensive treatment options such as surgeries.

In the event that a musculoskeletal injury requires surgery, our orthopedic team provides expert care correcting any injuries in the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, or muscles.
