Car Accidents and Chiropractic Care
You get into your vehicle as you have done hundreds of times before and start off to your destination. Suddenly you find yourself as a part of a motor vehicle accident.
Being in an accident can be really scary. First you want to rule out and injuries that require medical attention such as lacerations, broken bones, internal injuries, concussions just to name a few.
Often your accident results in soft tissue injuries that may be best served by a health professional that has the experience and tools to access your injuries and to provide an appropriate care plan. Many people feel and are often told that these types of injuries only require rest or medication and then they tell you the 5 often deadliest words in the english language…Maybe It Will Go Away.
Understanding the dynamic that takes place to the human body during an accident which will affect your spine, nerves, muscles, tendon and ligaments that are stressed beyond their normal range during the biomechanical process during a car accident is best assessed by your local doctor of Chiropractic.

Many people will experience any number of symptoms that you may experience immediately or over a period of days, weeks or even months. Left uncared for these types of injuries can frequently leave you with conditions that can affect the quality of your life.

I met Dr Matthew at the Thomas Crossroads Elementary Fall Festival and began treating with him for help from many injuries and car accidents. I’ve tried everything from acupuncture, the tens unit, massage therapy, pain killers, muscle relaxers and even 2 neck surgeries. My life has changed since starting care (October 2008) and getting my regular adjustments. At Crossroads Chiropractic, I’m not just another number in the waiting room. Dr. Matthew and the staff make me feel like I matter.
