Millions of people experience injuries due to auto accidents every year across the U.S. Symptoms potentially worsen and last for years without effective auto accident treatment.

Learn about chiropractic treatment for auto accident injuries. Discover how our auto accident chiropractor in Louisville diagnoses and treats patients with gentle, effective chiropractic care.

What Are Common Auto Accident Injuries?

Back pain is common among individuals involved in auto accidents. The spine is especially susceptible to injury. Some people mistakenly believe they have a simple backache that will likely go away in a day or two only to have symptoms worsen with time. 

Whiplash, another common injury, affects more than just the neck. Pain, aching, stiffness, decreased mobility or range of motion are just some symptoms occurring when you have whiplash that is easily dismissed, only to worsen within days or weeks.

Injuries to the head, upper and lower extremities, and muscle and ligament injuries are injuries often experienced after a motor vehicle accident.

Our Highland Chiropractic team welcomes individuals with auto accident injuries. Our chiropractor, Dr. Charles Copeland, has the knowledge and experience to perform a variety of diagnostic procedures to help you understand the nature of your injuries and discuss an auto accident treatment plan with you.

Should I Wait And See If Injuries Develop After My Auto Accident?

There are possible complications to waiting to see if noticeable injuries appear after an auto accident. Whiplash, other injuries to the neck, head, or shoulders do not always appear right away after a motor vehicle accident.

Back injuries are sometimes more than a simple backache because of the impact of an auto accident. Injuries to any part of your back potentially result in damage to the spine, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves in your back. 

The Palmer College of Chiropractic points out that many people involved in auto accidents do not notice pain at first. They also indicate that unless a person involved in a motor vehicle accident has proper treatment, injury symptoms, including pain, potentially persist years later.
