Automobile Accident Care

Underwood Chiropractic is prepared to guide auto accident victims back to health. Even a seemingly minor motor vehicle accident can put tremendous forces into the body and cause injuries such as whiplash with symptoms of pain, numbness, and tingling in the neck, head, upper back, and down the arms. Low back pain is common with car accidents as well. Often the seriousness of the injury takes weeks to become apparent. For this reason, Dr. Underwood recommends that drivers and occupants involved in a motor vehicle accident be examined soon after the accident to determine how their bodies have been impacted by the collision even if they are not yet feeling much pain. If injury is found, a plan of corrective care will be made by the doctor to get the patient out of pain and back to their pre-accident functional status as soon as possible.
