There are a wide variety of auto accident injuries that can occur hours, weeks, or even months after the initial accident. All of them can cause you to suffer from acute or chronic pain. If you've suffered an auto accident injury, consider visiting our chiropractor.

He and the rest of the staff at Back & Neck Care Chiropractic are here to help residents of Vancouver, WA recover quickly and effectively from auto accident injuries.
What Are Common Auto Accident Injuries?
There are over 17,000 car accidents that occur every day in America. Although you might be able to walk away from some accidents, some car crashes can lead to devastating injuries. Some of the most common auto accident injuries include:
- Internal trauma
- Muscle strains
- Muscle sprains
- Bone fractures
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Seatbelt injuries
Do I Need Help from A Chiropractor?
Although you might be able to walk away from a car crash thinking you're not hurt, it's important to get help from a chiropractor as soon as you can. Certain injuries, such as back and neck pain and whiplash, won't be apparent immediately after a crash. They can take hours, days, or even weeks to show up. Other injuries, such as muscle strains and sprains, can be difficult to recover from without professional help. This is especially true if you've had surgery for your injury and now need professional rehabilitation.
Types of Auto Accident Treatment
Our chiropractor will be able to determine the type of auto accident treatment you'll need. They can offer the best advice when it comes to recovery. Our chiropractor will determine the root cause of your pain after conducting physical exams and imaging tests such as x-rays. Potential treatment options include:
- Manual or spinal adjustments to help realign your skeletal structure after an accident
