What Is the Most Common Injury After a Car Crash?
Soft tissue injuries are the most common injuries after auto accidents. These include strains, sprains, and tears in the muscles and ligaments. Whiplash is also a type of soft tissue injury that affects the neck and happens due to the forceful, rapid back-and-forth motion involved in a car accident.
Symptoms of whiplash may include:
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Low back pain
- Neck stiffness
- Blurred vision
- Ringing in the ears
- Concentration or memory problems
- Pain or numbness in the arm or hand
- Feeling tired or restless
- And more
Chiropractic care can be helpful for soft tissue injuries, especially whiplash. Without proper treatment, these issues can be painful and debilitating.

How Does Coast Physical Medicine Treat Auto Accident Injuries?
Most patients go to the hospital after an auto accident, so we start by reviewing hospital records. Then, we examine the patient themselves and identify and evaluate their injuries. Sometimes, we also order imaging tests like X-rays.
Once we understand what is wrong, we give our patients all the options and get started on a treatment plan.
Treatment for Patients with Auto Accident Injuries
At Coast Physical Medicine, we offer a variety of treatment options for patients who have been in auto accidents.
The following treatments may help you live pain-free after an auto accident:
- Chiropractic care, including spinal decompression
- Massage therapy
- Trigger point injections
- High-density laser therapy
No matter what treatment you choose, you will find pain relief and other benefits. A massage, for instance, can release tension in and around sore, injured muscles, and chiropractic care can help your body rediscover alignment after a car crash shakes it off-kilter.
We are proud to offer many different wellness services to help you feel better and get back on your feet after an auto accident.
When Will I Feel Better After Seeking Post-Accident Chiropractic Care?
Every patient is different, and your recovery time will depend on the severity of your injury. Most patients need multiple sessions to heal fully but begin feeling the effects of their treatments after only 1 or 2 sessions.
For best results, we usually recommend care over a period of 12 weeks. Although chiropractic care is not quite as fast as prescription medication, the improvements usually last much longer, and most patients can be pain-free without surgery or potentially addictive painkillers.
At Coast Physical Medicine, we have been helping people feel better since 1992. We offer services at a state-of-the-art facility with new technology, and we have over 30 years of experience in the field.
If you’re still skeptical, we are happy to answer any questions you may have. If you’re ready to schedule an appointment, we are ready to take your call.
