Auto Injuries

Every year over 2 million people are injured in car accidents which demand immediate accident treatment. At Lighthouse Chiropractic we have the experience and expertise to assess and treat low speed and high speed auto injuries. Both types of injuries require continued evaluation, assessment and treatment to determine the amount of damage sustained to the spine, discs and tissues of the involved area.

SpineA lot of back pain and neck pain injuries resulting from car accidents are not properly treated due to lack of diagnostic capacity. This is due to the fact that often the the source of pain is overlooked, and the trauma of the patient is underestimated. Often these car accident mistakes will lead to the discontinuation of necessary accident treatment which can cause the body to develop motion and strength impairments and not heal properly.

Don’t underestimate your own injury and compromise your health! An immediate chiropractic examination is essential if you have been in a car accident no matter how severe you think your injury may be.

You may relate soreness and stiffness to muscle strain unaware that you could actually be suffering from a disc injury. These types of injuries if not identified properly could surface later as more serious permanent painful problems that may never heal.

At LightHouse Chiropractic we have state of the art equipment and staff to implement a personalized rehabilitation program to accommodate many types of injuries and conditions.

Accident Treatment

We know how hard auto accidents can be both physically, mentally and financially.

If you or a family member has been in a car accident we provide chiropractic assistance. We will also work with your insurance company to arrange the financial means to get you well. What happens if you get in a car accident?

In most auto accidents, injuries are not detected for months or even years! Most often auto accident victims use medications to treat their pain unaware of hidden more serious injuries.

Unfortunately most doctors don’t even have the training to detect soft tissue injuries, so they prescribe drugs to cover up your symptoms. Insurance companies prefer this as they get released from liability and victims end up settling their cases before they even get thoroughly checked for soft tissue injuries from a specialist!

Both minor and major car accidents produce a whipping action of the neck damaging the surrounding soft tissue structures (muscles and ligaments). Abnormal joint function is common after whiplash trauma and can lead to a variety of disorders, including but not limited to the following:

• Muscle Stiffness
• Neck Pain
• Numbness and Tingling
• Low Back Pain
• Fatigue
• Spasms
• Headaches
• Mid-Back Pain
• Difficulty Sleeping
• Sore and Achy Muscles
• Difficulty Concentrating
