Chiropractic Rehabilitation for Auto Accident Injuries
It is critical that chiropractic care is sought immediately after a car accident. Allowing the effects of whiplash to go untreated can induce long-term pain. The severity of the physical effects of a car accident are not always felt immediately. It can take days, weeks or even months for major symptoms to show up which is why chiropractic care is essential to maintaining the health of a spine that has suffered trauma.
Common Conditions that Can Lead to Serious Injury After an Auto Accident
- Neck pain or lower back pain
- Tingling, numbness or pain in the limbs
- Loss of range of motion
- Dizziness, headaches or blurred vision
- Trouble walking
Our Doctors and Therapists Have Extensive Training for Treatment of Motor Vehicle Accidents and Disc Injuries
Because the effects of whiplash are often delayed, receiving a full spinal analysis and posture screening is extremely important after an accident. It serves as the initial step to formulating a treatment program. Whether it is neck pain, soreness or burning soft tissue pain, chiropractic care can get the body back to how it used to be pre-accident. We work with patients to find an effective course of action.
Therapies for Auto Accident Injuries
Chiropractic Adjustments: Chiropractic adjustments provide effective pain relief from a wide variety of conditions. We specialize in providing gentle, safe and effective chiropractic care to patients of all ages in Malden, Salem and surrounding areas of Massachusetts. Spinal adjustments correct the alignment, motion and function of the vertebral joint.
Massage Therapy: While many people may see massage as a luxury, it can assist in your medical treatment as well as part of a health regimen. We utilize massage therapy independently or in conjunction with chiropractic care in order to help you achieve optimal results. You will feel better and more relaxed because of our unique integrative approach. Additionally, massage therapy combined with chiropractic care will help to increase the speed of recovery from injury.
Neuromuscular Therapy: By definition, neuromuscular therapy is the utilization of static pressure on specific myofascial points to relieve pain. This technique manipulates the soft tissue of the body (muscles, tendons and connective tissue) to balance the central nervous system.

Personal injury protection (PIP) coverage is mandatory for nearly all auto insurance policies. With PIP coverage in place, you and all the passengers in the car are insured regardless of who is at fault for an accident (typically up to $15,000). It also covers you if you are a pedestrian or a cyclist. PIP insurance covers medical expenses and lost wages and will pay for your care of injuries, including costs and co-pays for chiropractic care, out-of-pocket prescription costs, or other similar costs.
