When you’ve been in a car accident, one of the first things you worry about is whether you’ve been injured – right before you think about the damage to your car. But somewhere between realizing you feel okay and making auto repairs, you forget to keep asking yourself how you feel, checking to make sure you didn’t miss any injuries. At Caron Chiropractic Clinic, P.A., we see plenty of patients who have had car accidents weeks or months before coming to see us and who have just started feeling or paying attention to the symptoms of their auto injuries. Luckily, at our St. Paul, Minnesota clinic, you can count on our chiropractors to help you relieve your auto injury pain no matter how long you’ve waited to seek treatment.

Recognizing Whiplash after an Auto Accident

Whiplash is a common injury associated with car accidents, and it’s also one of the more ambiguous injuries that you can suffer from. Unfortunately, because those who sustain whiplash injuries do not all suffer in the same way or to the same degree, it can be difficult for patients to diagnose themselves or even be aware that their symptoms are cause for concern. If you’ve recently been in a car accident, though, you should be on the lookout for any whiplash symptoms that may be affecting you. If you feel tension or pain in your neck, back, or arms following an auto accident, you may be suffering from whiplash, so no matter how slight your pain may be, get checked out to be sure you don’t cause yourself more harm by waiting.

Relieve Whiplash Pain with Chiropractic Treatment

Because whiplash is an injury that is caused by the improper movement of your body, throwing pills at the problem won’t provide you with a solution. You can take as many anti-inflammatories and pain-relief medications as you’d like, but if you have suffered from whiplash, the best treatment to cure you of your pain rather than simply treat the symptoms is chiropractic treatments. We’ll realign your body, adjusting your neck and back to make sure that anything that may have been strained and pulled from its usual position can settle back into its rightful place. Following chiropractic visits, you can expect to feel whiplash pain relief that wouldn’t be possible with over the counter medications.

Insurance-Covered Auto Accident Treatment

Because Minnesota is a no-fault insurance state, no matter what coverage you have, your auto insurance will always cover personal injury. This means that you don’t have to be afraid to get help to treat your auto accident injuries. Between auto and medical insurance, and our affordable care, Caron Chiropractic Clinic is the perfect solution for those suffering from car accident injuries like whiplash.
