Auto Accidents/Personal Injury
Chiropractic in Smyrna

When you’ve been in a car accident, one of the most common injuries is whiplash. This can be mild to severe, depending on the conditions of the accident. When whiplash occurs, the soft tissues, ligaments and cartilage are overstretched and over-forced, bringing the bones of the spine out of alignment. This can result in neurological deficits and challenges, neuromuscular issues and subluxation.
At Mustard Seed Chiropractic, we pay special attention to the neck, low back and extremities after a car accident, with the goal of bringing the body back into alignment to allow the soft tissues and other structures to heal.

Our Approach to Care

Being in an automobile collision is stressful, so we strive to make getting the care you need easy and convenient. Since we’ll need X-rays for your case, we can refer you out for those prior to your first visit with us. We also ask that you bring your insurance information and the police report from the accident. That way, we’ll have all the information we need to get started with your care.

When you come in for your first visit, your chiropractor will talk with you about your symptoms. Then we’ll do a complete neurological scan using the CLA INSiGHT™ scanning technology. We’ll explain what we’ve found and how we think chiropractic care can help. Then, if you’re ready to begin, you’ll typically receive your first adjustment at this visit.

We work directly with insurance companies, and we can help get you legal representation if you haven’t already done so.

Length of Care

Every person’s situation is unique, so your care will be tailored to your specific needs. In most cases, we’ll see a practice member three times a week for the first two months. This will give us a good indication if chiropractic care alone will help correct the issues, or if it’s time to get other providers involved. We are happy to refer out to physical therapists, orthopedists and neurologists when needed—our goal is to ensure you get the complete care you need for a full recovery.

Depending on the severity of your injuries, care plans may take anywhere from three to six months, or longer, in some extreme cases.

Don’t Wait

Many people think they don’t need to be checked out after an accident if they are not in any kind of pain. However, when the deeper tissues are damaged, it’s common not to feel much pain at first—but then, a month or so down the line, the pain is excruciating.

When we check you out as soon as possible after a car crash, we can restore your spinal alignment to allow the soft tissues to heal in the proper position as well. This may help to avoid long term issues like neurological deficits, numbness and tingling in the extremities, loss of strength, shooting pains, mobility issues and pain that can occur when accident injuries are not addressed.
