Why See A Chiropractic Doctor After A Personal Injury Accident?

Do I Need to See a Chiropractor After a Personal Injury Accident?

As an injured person in a personal injury accident, your top priority should be seeking quality medical care at a chiropractic clinic.

Chiropractors treat 33% of all accident victims, which is appropriate because most accidents result in injuries like whiplash, soft tissue injuries, neck injuries, musculoskeletal injuries, spinal injuries, and cervical, thoracic and lumbar strains and sprains.

Visiting a chiropractic doctor who specializes in treating the types of injuries associated with auto accidents will help with the recovery process and provide pain relief for any potential injuries that you sustained. 

In this blog, we review personal injuries and why Chiropractic Care is the best course of action following your accident.

After suffering from auto accident injuries, it should be your top priority to seek chiropractic care to begin the healing process so you can return to your normal daily life. 

The cost of Chiropractic Care should never be a factor or sway your decision to get the medical help you need for your auto accident injuries.

You should never be held responsible for your medical expenses when you did not cause the accident.

Choosing the right chiropractic therapy clinic for treatment can influence the outcome of your musculoskeletal issues, financial compensation, and overall personal injury claim.

Chiropractic healthcare professionals are by far the most commonly sought-after specialty by accident injury victims involved in personal injury accidents.



Accident chiropractors treat more patients than any other specialty and are the only professionals trained specifically to treat these types of soft tissue injuries. Their ability to help these patients is unparalleled.

Common Types of Personal Injury Accidents

An accident injury chiropractor will have the skills and experience to treat acute injuries from any of the following types of accidents: 

  • Car Accidents
  • Truck Accidents
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Slip, Trip, and Fall Accident
  • Workplace Accident

Treat Pain, Restore Mobility, Strengthen and Stabilize

Many victims experience some type of injury after being involved in a personal injury accident. Whether your injuries present chronic pain symptoms or not, a chiropractic accident doctor can provide pain relief treatment so you can restore your mobility, strengthen your muscles, stabilize your body, and prevent long-term pain. 

The most commonly affected areas of the body are the neck and spine after a personal injury accident takes place.

Victims of personal injuries often have trouble completing regular daily tasks and find that they simply can't move the way they used to, reducing their quality of life. 

Individuals who already suffer from chronic pain and soreness, like the elderly, find their pain symptoms increased, having worsened their pre-developed injuries.

Chiropractic adjustments help to improve your joint pain and mobility and decrease the chance of suffering from long-term pain and soft tissue damage.

Even victims who do not immediately experience pain should still make it a top priority to make an appointment with a licensed chiropractor after a personal injury accident.

Many injuries do not cause soreness, stiffness, discomfort, or pain until days or even weeks after an accident occurs.

After time has passed, individuals who have still not sought treatment risk forfeiting their right to file an insurance claim for pain treatment compensation. 

Although monetary compensation is nice, your health is the most important thing. It can't hurt to make sure you are uninjured and get checked out by an experienced chiropractic doctor.

Early care and treatment will provide a chance for relief from pain and a faster recovery from pain without medication or surgery. 

Even the most minor accidents could cause severe injuries if the body was pushed, stretched, or twisted in an abnormal manner.


Make Sure Your Medical Bills Get Paid

If you are suffering from a personal injury after an accident that was not your fault, choosing the right chiropractor for treatment can highly influence the outcome of the legal proceedings. 

Be sure you are obtaining fair compensation for your injuries and that all of your medical bills and treatments are covered by the at-fault person's insurance.

It is essential to see a chiropractor who handles third-party billing and will hold the insurance company liable for medical bills or refer you to a personal injury lawyer who will fight for your legal rights.

It is also important to make sure that your chiropractor will work with various personal injury lawyers. Any professional practice should maintain a list of quality attorneys to refer their patients to help get the settlement they deserve.

This will allow you to have options and talk to as many personal injury attorneys as you like before you decide on one. You should never feel rushed or forced to go with an attorney of someone else's choosing.

At Arrowhead Clinic, we know reputable personal injury attorneys who handle the insurance providers and do everything they can to get their clients the settlement they deserve.

Chiropractic Care for Personal Injuries


The "Right" Medical Treatment Increases the Settlement Value of an Injury Claim

First and foremost, you should feel the doctor has taken the time to understand your medical history, to know what happened to you in your accident, and how it has affected you physically.

They must also provide proper documentation to make the claims process smoother. They will then create a personalized treatment plan to help with your recovery time and reduce the risk of any long-term problems. 

Additionally, the type of medical treatment you receive and the duration of treatment will play an important role in how the insurance company values your legal claim.
