Auto Accident Injury FAQs and Answers from our San Diego
At the Roeder Wellness Center, our team provides treatment with a car accident chiropractor in San Diego who can answer questions about how chiropractic care can help you after an accident on the road.
I was in a car accident but I feel fine/already went to my primary care physician. Should I still see a chiropractor?
We strongly recommend consulting with a chiropractor after any type of car accident, even if you don’t immediately feel pain.
Many times after physical trauma, signs, and symptoms of an injury are masked by flight-or-fight hormones. These hormones, which have a natural analgesic effect, can take time to return to normal levels—meaning you may have an injury and not know it. Seeing a chiropractor right away helps ensure no underlying inflammation or injury is going on or helps deliver the earliest treatment possible if there is.
What are the most common types of car crash injuries I should be on the lookout for?
Even small fenders benders can lead to car crash injuries, including but not limited to:
- Whiplash: shoulder and neck pain and stiffness, headaches, and jaw pain caused by rapid bending and extending of the neck
- Back Pain: can be related to muscle strains and bruises, joint subluxations, disc herniations or bulges
- Nerve impingement: e.g., radiculopathy or sciatica, which may cause numbness, tingling, and pain in a limb
Why should I see a chiropractor for auto accident injuries?
Seeing a chiropractor for auto accident injuries gives your body a chance to do what it does best—heal. Our treatments don't focus on "masking" symptoms but instead address the underlying causes of symptoms (e.g., postural imbalances, inflammation, tissue damage, etc.) and maximize the alignment/function of your musculoskeletal and neurological systems. We employ several drug-free techniques, like chiropractic adjustments, exercise, massage, and modalities like ultrasound, diathermy, and electrical stimulation. Your unique treatment plan is prescribed following a thorough examination.
What payment options are available for my visits?
We offer flexible payment options and also accept several health insurance plans, including auto accident and Medicare. Our friendly staff is here to help, and we remind all patients that a small investment in your health now can yield fantastic returns on your health in the future!
