Auto Accidents

Automobile accident injuries are varied and unique.

Auto Impact injuries are not always easy to identify and symptoms are not always obvious right away.  Many times the emotional trauma of a car accident causes your body to go in to ‘self preservation mode’, releasing endorphins to act as a barrier to pain.  It may be that you will begin to experience PAIN and other symptoms as much as a day or two AFTER the accident.


Walking, running, lifting, stretching and even sneezing can begin to aggravate an area that is jolted in an accident and cause more symptoms.  Pain & mobility limitations may continue to increase as your body reacts to the impact of the automobile accident.

The most commonly known Automobile Accident Injury is Whiplash, which results from a sudden or stressful ‘Whipping’ of the neck in an UNNATURAL manner.  Even the most minor ‘fender bender’ can cause an UNNATURAL jolt to bones, muscles, ligaments and tendons, resulting in PAIN.

UNNATURAL Movements caused by even a minor impact can cause injury and misalignment of not only the neck and shoulders, but also to other areas of the body that are directly related to the SPINE.

The impact can cause a MISALIGNMENT of the SPINE that will present symptoms such as HEADACHES, PAIN in other areas of the body, as well as TINGLING or NUMBNESS of the fingers, toes, arms, and legs.
