Auto and Work Injuries

Auto Injuries

According to the Insurance Research Council, nearly 1/3 of all claimants injured in motor vehicle accidents (MVA's) seek treatment from doctors of chiropractic. This is an impressive number given that the National Safety Council (NSC) has determined there to be more than 12 million MVA's annually involving more than 20 million vehicles.

The reason individuals like yourself choose chiropractic care for treatment of injuries sustained in MVA's is simple - chiropractic care is exceptional in the treatment of soft tissue injuries, especially of the spine. Since the most common injuries associated with MVA's are sprains and strains of the spinal muscles and ligaments, it's only natural that chiropractic be the treatment of choice.

Many studies have also found individuals injured in MVA's prefer chiropractic care for the treatment of their injuries. One such study evaluated 190 whiplash injury victims and found those who received chiropractic care reported treatment satisfaction of 100%.

What Is Chiropractic Care?

If you’ve never had chiropractic care administered before, you may be a bit apprehensive about scheduling an appointment with our chiropractor in South Huntington. To help quell any nerves, our team would like to explain what this form of care involves. Chiropractic care focuses on misalignments in your spinal structure. To correct the misalignments that come from car accidents, our team will use chiropractic adjustments and manipulations. They will place varying amounts of pressure on specific parts of the body during this process. This pressure promotes realignment and reduces your symptoms.
