Here at Back Talk Chiropractic, we specialize in helping you get back to feeling like yourself after an auto accident. We know that it can be a scary time and we make it our goal to ensure that you feel great as quickly as possible.
An auto accident can cause many different issues. Often an accident can throw your neck, your spine, or even your entire body out of alignment. Our trained professionals are able to work with you to find the exact cause of each of your issues and help you through exercises as well as regular chiropractic care so that you begin to feel like yourself again.
One of the main injuries that can occur in an auto accident is whiplash. Whiplash is a sudden movement of the head being pushed quickly backward and then forward. It can even happen side to side. Whiplash destabilizes your spine and can even cause pain in other areas. You may notice shoulder pain, blurred vision, neck pain, increased headaches, dizziness, arm pain, and much more.
Chiropractic care is important after an auto accident because if the effects go untreated, they can become a long-term problem that will continue to affect you for many years to come. In an auto accident, you may not feel the side effects right away. In fact, it may take weeks or even months to notice the full effect of the accident.
Even if you had a minor auto accident, you will want to see a chiropractor to ensure that everything is still aligned. If you are feeling any pain, our team at Back Talk Chiropractic will work with you to take the necessary steps to help you feel better.

Car Accident Injury FAQs
Can Chiropractic Care Improve an Auto Accident Injury?
This is the most common question individuals have when involved in an auto accident. The force involved in a typical incident can result in traumatic effects on your spinal column. The auto accident injury you have may be the result of compression of your spinal column that leads to back pain, neck pain, limited mobility, joint concerns, and herniated discs. Chiropractic care may be able to treat each of these areas of concern.
Is Chiropractic Care Covered Under Insurance Claims After a Car Accident?
In most situations, if you are filing an insurance claim for your car accident for the injury you’ve experienced, your chiropractic care can be covered under that claim. This depends on the circumstances of your individual case. However, many individuals can include the costs of treatment from us in their insurance claim.
Will Chiropractic Care Help with Chronic Pain from an Old Auto Accident Injury?
If you’ve been in any type of car accident, ensure you visit an emergency room immediately for any life-threatening needs. If you have lingering pain, limited mobility, or develop chronic pain over the coming weeks or months, come in to see us. Chiropractic care can help minimize pain that is acute and recent, or it can help with chronic pain from injuries sustained years ago.
How Does a Chiropractor Treat Auto Accident Injuries?
Treatment for auto accident injuries focuses on proper alignment of the spinal column. This is done in our office using a procedure called a spinal adjustment. It is non-invasive. Our chiropractor’s goal is to properly align the spine so that the vertebrae are properly positioned and there is no compression on the nerves in the spine. By doing this, we can reduce most of the pain you feel after an auto accident.
What Type of Treatment Can Our Chiropractor Offer?
- Soft tissue pain
- Joint pain
- Arm or leg pain
- Blurred vision
- Migraines or headaches that developed after your accident
- Reduced range of motion
- Neck pain or back pain
Come in to see Dr. Tolson for treatment. Chiropractic care is extensive and can help to minimize many of these symptoms. Our goal is to understand your symptoms then to create a treatment plan that addresses them. If you’ve suffered from any type of auto accident, and have pain now, seek out care.
When Should You Get Chiropractic Treatment After a Car Accident?
After getting immediate medical care for any injuries, schedule an appointment with Dr. Tolson for treatment immediately. Chiropractic care can begin to help you heal in the days after an accident. Keep in mind that the injuries occurring during a car accident may not be evident immediately. It can take several days or up to a week for you to feel whiplash, back pain, or other types of pain. That’s why you should see a chiropractor immediately after visiting an ER.
