Auto Accident FAQs

Auto accidents are common everywhere across the country. Auto injuries can leave you with pain, discomfort, and loss of mobility. At the Advanced Wellness Centre in Richmond, VA we offer chiropractic pain relief treatment for musculoskeletal auto injuries. The following FAQs and answers explain the benefit of chiropractic care for auto accident injuries.


Why Should I See a Chiropractor for an Auto Accident Injury?

Our auto accident chiropractors have advanced training in the treatment of musculoskeletal and soft tissue injuries, such as whiplash, that are often associated with auto accidents. You could take pain relief pills, but medications won’t treat the source of your pain. Chiropractic care treats your pain at its source to promote quicker recovery from an injury.

Why choose the Advanced Wellness Center?

Diagnosing the severity of injury is often missed. At the Advanced Wellness Center, we utilize motion films to fully understand the severity of an auto accident injury. Once this is understood, we use a multidisciplinary approach to address all aspects of the injury. Injuries associated with car accidents cannot be handled with drugs. The physical injury must be addressed with a combination of manual therapies to achieve the greatest recovery.

If I’m Not Experiencing Pain, Should I Still Get a Chiropractic Evaluation?

Unfortunately, many soft tissue injuries arising from auto accidents go UNDIAGNOSED. Some musculoskeletal injuries don’t register pain right away, giving people the impression that everything’s okay after an auto accident. Later, however, you may start experiencing painful symptoms. By getting evaluated immediately after your accident, you can obtain an accurate diagnosis of any injuries so as not to delay your treatment. Early treatment helps recovery, and delaying treatment could prolong your pain and discomfort.

What Symptoms Should I Look Out for in a Musculoskeletal Auto Injury?

An auto accident injury can cause pain and discomfort in your neck, shoulders, and back. You may feel stiffness and soreness in your joints and experience headaches as a result of your auto injury. Some people have difficulty sleeping due to stress or anxiety after their auto accident, leaving them feeling fatigued.

What Injuries Can Chiropractors Treat?

At Advanced Wellness Centre, we treat a wide range of injuries associated with the above symptoms including whiplash, herniated discs, subluxations, sprains, strains, and soft tissue injuries. We may incorporate a variety of therapies into your treatment to include spinal adjustments, massage, hot/cold treatments, along with laser and decompression, just to name a few.

What Are the Benefits of Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care is a safe, effective, non-invasive, drug-free means of relieving pain and recuperating from an auto accident injury. As no drugs are involved, you don’t have to worry about side effects from medications or getting addicted to prescription pain killers.

Will My Auto Insurance Cover Chiropractic Treatment for an Auto Accident Injury?

If you have personal injury coverage, your auto insurance may cover all of the cost of your treatment. If someone else was at fault for the accident, their auto insurance may compensate you for treatment.
