Did you know that Pain from Auto Accident Injuries can linger for years?
If you’ve ever been in an auto accident, one of the first things you probably did was look yourself over, trying to find any visible signs of injury. This reaction is a common one, because we’ve all been taught not to make a “big deal” out of scratches and bruises, but the reality of a crash can be much different.
While the twisted metal of your vehicle might portray the physical aspects of an accident, your body can absorb the pain in a variety of different ways—many of which can lie hidden under the surface for hours, days, months, or even years!
This misunderstanding can often lead to a delay in feeling a lot of things— from headaches to back pain—but to fully understand how an accident can really affect you, you have to understand that the force behind a crash doesn’t just travel through your vehicle—it also travels through YOU.
The most important task for you after an accident is to IMMEDIATELY come into your HealthSource Chiropractor for an injury screening.

for many conditions, chiropractic treatment can restore the structural integrity of the spine, reduce pressure on the sensitive neurological tissue, and consequently improve the health of the individual.
Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs) care for patients of all ages, with a variety of health conditions. DCs are especially well known for their expertise in caring for patients with back pain, neck pain and headaches...particularly with their highly skilled manipulations or chiropractic adjustments. Stillwater chiropractors also care for patients with a wide range of injuries and disorders of the musculoskeletal system, involving the muscles, ligaments and joints. These painful conditions often involve or impact the nervous system, which can cause referred pain and dysfunction distant to the region of injury. The benefits of chiropractic care extend to general health issues, as well, since our body structure affects our overall function. Stillwater chiropractors also counsel patients on diet, nutrition, exercise, healthy habits, and occupational and lifestyle modification.

Back and neck pain are the specialties of chiropractic but many Stillwater chiropractors treat ailments other than musculoskeletal issues. Most who seek Stillwater chiropractic care do so for low back pain.
