Auto accidents are, sadly, one of the most common reasons people have for seeking chiropractic treatment. When an auto accident occurs, our bodies are at the mercy of the moment, often leaving us in intense pain. All too often, this pain stems from damage done to our spines, necks, and hips — some of the most sensitive and most accident prone areas of our bodies.

Injuries suffered during auto accidents often don’t show themselves for some time after the accident. This can be particularly worrisome for injuries involving nerves and discs.

Some of the most common auto accident-related injuries and their respective symptoms include:


  • Whiplash and neck pain
    • Blurred vision and/or dizziness
    • Ringing in the ears
    • Headaches, particularly ocular
    • Burning, numbness, or radiating pain in the neck, face, jaw, shoulders and arms



  • Traumatic carpal tunnel syndrome
    • Tingling, numbness, and/or pain in the thumb and initial three fingers
    • Difficulty making a fist
    • Difficulty holding and handling small objects



  • Back pain
    • Dull, aching, or burning back throughout the spine



  • Lower back pain
    • Pain radiating between the hips and just above the pant line



  • Upper back pain
    • Pain running between the head and into the shoulders



  • Pelvic and hip pain
    • Deep, aching pain lodged between joints



  • Joint stress, strain, and injury
    • Discomfort or a burning, aching pain in the impacted joints



  • Headaches and migraines
    • Often more intense headaches/migraines
    • Extreme sensitivity to light, sound, and other external stimuli
