Auto Accidents and Personal Injury

At Simmons Specific Chiropractic in Midland, MI, we provide a quality chiropractic care for patients suffering with pain from musculoskeletal issues. If you have any pain due to an auto accident, it is important to seek treatment to prevent the discomfort from becoming chronic. Before visiting us for treatment, learn about the different types of accident injuries below:


Whiplash is one of the most common causes of neck pain. Whiplash happens when the head is suddenly moved forward or backward in one direction and then into the opposite direction. The condition commonly occurs during a rear-end collision. The pain from whiplash may also not appear until hours, days, or weeks later.

Disc Issues

If you’ve been in a car accident and have experienced a sudden impact, you may experience a bulging disc or herniated disc. When the disc moves from its natural alignment along the spinal column and bulges out, it can compress the nerve roots along the spine and cause pain throughout the body. Our chiropractor can offer relief with treatments like manual spinal adjustments, massage, and ice therapy.

Seatbelt Injury

Wearing a seat belt is essential, as it can can mitigate serious injury or save your life if you’re in an auto accident. However, you can still sustain an injury even if you’re utilizing a seatbelt. The placement of the seatbelt, if worn properly, can cause an injury to the breastbone, ribs, and organs beneath them. Along with that, you may abrasion or bruising, which can be an indication of injury to the spine. Chiropractic treatment can be beneficial in alleviating your pain and preventing further complications.

Airbag Injury

Similar to seatbelts, airbags can also help save lives. They can also cause severe injury when deployed in an accident. Chiropractic treatment can help treat injuries sustained by airbag deployment. The impact can cause spine misalignment, shoulder injuries, upper body joint injuries, and temporomandibular joint pain (TMJ). There are several forms of chiropractic treatment available to help eliminate the discomfort from these injuries.  

Does Chiropractic Help After an Accident?

If you have been in an auto accident, you could be suffering from whiplash or other upper/lower body pain. What happens is that the blunt force trauma from the accident throws your spine and other joints out of alignment. This misalignment causes a rippling effect throughout your body, which is why you are being subjected to this pain. If you've had an auto accident or another type of personal injury, it's a good idea to seek out spinal screening services in Midland, MI to make sure everything’s in its place.

Should I See a Chiropractor?  

If these problems persist, your body will try to compensate in ways that could only compromise your overall health in the long run. Even if your auto accident wasn’t recent, you could be noticing recurring symptoms and not even realize it was related to the accident. We see individuals who have been in accidents years prior and never sought care because they were initially “fine.” Seek help right away to ensure optimal recovery.

What Are Common Accident Symptoms?

There are many common signs you may not know are related to your accident.

  • Difficulty sleeping.
  • Neck or back pain.
  • Headaches.
  • Other symptoms.

When Should I Seek Help?

We see many previous and recent auto accident victims who need help with their recovery. The human body was created in such a way that it responds quite well to natural healing techniques. Our team at Simmons Specific Chiropractic is happy to help patients reclaim their lifestyle with chiropractic care.
