Auto Injury ChiropractorCarrollton, TX
Following any car accident or collision, it is crucial to seek a professional medical assessment from a chiropractor. At Esposito Chiropractic, we can examine the patient and determine if there are any early signs of a serious chiropractic issue. Far too often, people will assume that a minor pain in their neck or back after an accident will be temporary. This is not always the case.
Benefits of Early Auto Injury Treatment
In fact, many car accident injuries will not display any pain for days or weeks after the accident. With that in mind, we can provide the early intervening care that prevents the pain from getting worse. As an auto injury chiropractor, we can help examine the patient for any injuries, take note of any issues for legal reasons and begin the treatment process.
If you are in a car accident and begin to feel sore, give us a call before the pain gets worse.
Since there are a multitude of possible chiropractic injuries that can occur from an auto accident, patients need to seek professional chiropractic care; especially if there are no outer signs of damage. While there may not be visible cuts or bruises, there can be internal damage. Chiropractic injuries can have no outward signs. With chiropractic auto injury treatment, we can:
- Examine the patient’s health and wellbeing after the accident
- Determine if there are any chiropractic injuries
- Take down notes and information the patient can use for insurance/legal reports
- Customize treatment plan to individual patient’s needs
- Help guide the patient through recovery
- Teach on exercises and stretches to complete at home to help with recovery
The force of impact from an auto accident can cause internal damage to the spine. The spine, also known as the superhighway of the body, connects everything together. Sudden force or movement to certain areas of the body can damage the spine as well. Even if the accident was several weeks earlier and the patient is only just now experiencing pain, our team can help.
Symptoms to Keep an eye out For
Patients who do not seek chiropractic care after an auto accident will need to watch out for certain symptoms of a chiropractic issue. It is important to note that if there are any open wounds, gashes or broken limbs, the patient needs to seek emergency medical attention first before seeking chiropractic treatment.
Symptoms of an underlying chiropractic injury or issue can include:
- Neck pain, stiffness, difficulty moving it
- Back pain
- Shoulder pain
- Pain sitting or resting in bed
- Difficulty when standing or walking
- Fatigue or dizziness
- Pain in certain areas of the body without visible injury
One condition that many people struggle with after an auto accident is whiplash. When a person is in a car accident, there is a chance their neck will snap forwards and then backwards suddenly. This back and forth movement can result in physical pain and trauma. Another symptom of whiplash includes headaches accompanied by the pain and stiffness in the neck.
Without professional treatment, people will only continue to experience pain after the accident. Even so, people will wait in the hopes the pain goes away on its own. Unfortunately, the pain gets worse and makes daily routines more difficult.
Auto Injury Treatment
As an auto injury chiropractor in Carrollton, TX, we can assess the situation, examine the patient and determine the most effective treatment plan. Our treatment plan will typically focus on treating the pain at its source and not just relieving symptoms.

Our treatment will involve:
- Pain management
- Physical therapy
- Specific exercises and stretches
- Regular appointments to keep recovery on track

Our treatment may involve physical therapy appointments to help promote recovery and correct any misalignment issues.
Non-surgical treatment may be more gradual, but it is less invasive and more natural. With our help, patients can enhance the natural healing process to promote effective and long-lasting recovery. There is no reason to shoulder the pain after an auto accident injury.
