Chiropractic Care After a Car Accident


If you’ve been in a car accident, chiropractic care is a vital step in recovery. But, how soon should you see a chiropractor? And what if you don’t feel any pain? The Spinal Health & Rehab team, serving Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte, Arcadia, North Port, Cape Coral, and North Fort Myers, answers those questions and more in this guide.

When Should I See a Chiropractor?

You want to go to the emergency room to check for life-threatening injuries as soon as possible. Calling a chiropractor should be a priority. You should seek chiropractic care within 72 hours of your car accident. This visit will prevent any long-lasting injuries from flaring up while recovering from the accident.

What If I Don’t Feel Any Pain?

It's not uncommon that experiencing a car accident is traumatic. Your body doesn’t process a personal injury or pick-up pain when you’re in shock.

Additionally, you might not feel pain until you carry out specific activities. For instance, you might feel fine moving through your typical day until you try to lift your child or reach the top of your cabinets. Or you might have a headache but assume it’s just stress.

See a chiropractor as soon as possible because they can pinpoint issues you might not even notice. They’ll feel along your spinal column for anything out of place, inflamed, or damaged.

Often, you’ll find that the source of your headache or pain while lifting or reaching is a misalignment due to the accident. With gentle and natural treatment, your chiropractor can address your injury so that you can return to your regular activities.
