Chiropractic Care After Car Accidents

September 10, 2013 by

     Dr Dolan of Dolan Family Chiropractic in Aurora, IL specializes in the treatment of car accident injuries including whiplash, back pain, and headaches.  The majority of injuries sustained in a car accident fall under the soft tissue category.  These injuries are the result of stretching and compressing muscles, ligaments, and tendons.  Most of the time these injuries will not show up on an x-ray.  They might not even really bother you that much directly after the accident or even over the next 24 hours.  These injuries can flare up 2-3 days after the accident and cause severe pain, muscle spasms, painful movement of joints, and loss of strength.  Many people are medically evaluated right after the accident or a few hours later at the hospital.  Many soft tissue injuries will feel OK until the next day.  Chiropractic care is an excellent form of conservative treatment for these kinds of injuries.  When treated early, these injuries heal faster and result in less long term effects.  Chiropractic incorporates spinal manipulation, stretching, massage, and physical therapy modalities such as ultrasound, electric muscle stimulation, and traction.  Dolan Family Chiropractic treats a wide variety of car accident injuries including whiplash, headaches, back pain, sciatica, and joint pain.  Many offices ask the patient to pay the bills and then receive reimbursement from the insurance company at settlement but Dolan Family Chiropractic works directly with the 3rd party insurance company without any cost to the patient.  The office is conveniently located on the corner of Eola Rd and N. Aurora Rd/Indian Trail in the Jewel shopping center.  If you have any questions about possible injuries you may have sustained in a car accident feel free to call Dr Dolan at 630-236-3090 to find out if chiropractic care can help you.
