Decatur Auto Accident Chiropractic Care
We specialize in treatment for injuries caused by car accidents.
Did you know that even a low-speed auto collision can result in substantial pain and injury to your spine? If you’ve been injured in a car accident, our Decatur Chiropractors have a plethora of experience in providing patients just like you with the right treatment plans.
Research shows that car accidents are a leading cause of soft tissue injuries. You may be wondering, what is a soft tissue injury and can you detect this injury on X-rays? A soft tissue injury is any damage or injury to muscles, ligaments, and tendons that sometimes are not detected right away as they do not show up on X-rays.
Common Cause of Soft Tissue Injuries in an Auto Accident
Our Decatur Chiropractic Care Specialists will help you heal from your auto accident injuries.
One very common cause of a soft tissue injury is the whiplash effect that follows a collision. Soft tissue injuries typically take between two and twelve weeks to heal, depending on the injury, the age and general health of the person injured, as well as the initial and ongoing chiropractic treatment.
You will often experience symptoms of soft tissue injuries some time after an accident occurs, typically several days from the accident date to weeks after.
Common symptoms of auto accident injuries include:
- Dizziness or Nausea
- Neck Pain (What does a chiropractor do for neck pain?)
- Sore Muscles or Spasms in the Back
- Tingling or Numbness in the Extremeties
If you experience any of the above symptoms, or whiplash injuries, call Integrated Health and Injury Center right away as these symptoms may be due to soft tissue injury.

Receiving Chiropractic Treatment After A Car Accident in Decatur
It’s important to see a chiropractor after you’ve been involved in an auto accident as you may be risking prolonged chronic pain or permanent damage to your health. Often after an auto accident, the Emergency Room doctors prescribe pain medications but these medications will only temporarily dull the pain, but these medications will not help heal your body.
Many victims of an auto accident experience an increase in pain levels during the days and weeks after suffering an accident. This condition is referred to as Delayed Onset of Muscle Soreness. It’s important that you reach out to Integrated Health and Injury Chiropractors as soon as possible. This condition, if not treated on time, can lead to a build-up of painful scar tissue around the accident injury.
