Why Should I See a Chiropractor after an Auto Accident?
When it comes to musculoskeletal pain, doctors may resort to prescription drugs for pain relief. Drugs can provide temporary relief of pain and discomfort but might not deal with the source of your pain. Chiropractic care is specifically designed to treat musculoskeletal injuries to give you long-term pain relief. Our treatments are noninvasive and drug free, so there’s no risk of getting addicted to prescription drugs for pain relief. By seeing a Newton chiropractor shortly after your auto accident, you can get help to know whether you have a soft tissue injury and avoid delays in your treatment.

How Do Chiropractors Treat an Auto Accident Injury or Personal Injury?
We start with a review of your medical history to get a better idea of your state of health. Afterward, we’ll perform a limited physical exam to diagnose your condition and determine the extent of your injury. This may require digital x-rays or other testing. Once we’ve determined the source of your pain, we can outline a plan for treatment.
A Newton chiropractor on our team can make use of chiropractic adjustments combined with holistic therapies like therapeutic massage, exercises, and lifestyle counseling to help treat whiplash and other auto injuries. Auto accidents may cause imbalances in your spine that can put pressure on spinal nerves. Adjustments realign your neck and spine to ease tension and pain. Massage helps circulate blood to injured areas to promote quicker recovery from your injury. Exercises can help strengthen weakened muscles to improve your range of motion and mobility.
