Car Accident Chiropractor in Beverly Hills & Spring Hill, FL

Car accidents are one of the leading causes of chronic and debilitating pain in the U.S. Each year, millions of Americans suffer from severe back, neck, and joint pain after having been in a car wreck. In many cases, it’s only a minor fender bender that causes victims to begin to feel pain, stiffness, and loss of mobility, and often they don’t start experiencing symptoms until several hours, days, or weeks after the incident.

Doctors will normally prescribe some combination of muscle relaxers, pain medication, rest and relaxation, or in some cases surgery. Many will also recommend that you see a car accident chiropractor. That’s because chiropractic medicine has been proven effective in helping accident victims alleviate their pain. It’s a safe and non-invasive alternative to risky surgery or pain medications.

How Car Accidents Cause Back, Neck, And Joint Pain

There are many possible reasons that you might begin experiencing chronic pain after a car accident.  A serious collision resulting in major impact damages can obviously cause catastrophic and traumatic injuries and disabilities. But most people don’t realize that even a minor auto accident, or any incident which causes the body to experience sudden violent stress, such as falls or impacts during sporting activities, can cause significant injury to the muscles, ligaments, and bones of the musculoskeletal system. That’s especially for the fragile structures of the neck and spine. Your car accident chiropractor in Beverly Hills, FL, specializes in the types of injuries that are most often incurred in a collision. Here are some of the most common conditions that a car accident chiropractor treats:


A term used to describe pain in the neck, back, and shoulders caused by the head being quickly snapped in one direction, either forward and back or side-to-side, often during a sudden impact or even just from hard braking. It’s a condition that is most commonly associated with rear-end collisions.

Herniated or Bulging Discs

This is a disorder affecting the soft cushions between the vertebrae of the spine that compress to absorb stress and enable smooth movement. A sudden impact can cause a disc to push out of its usual position, resulting in intense pain and limited mobility. Alternatively, the disc may become damaged and rupture, leaking internal fluids that irritate the surrounding nerves.

Damaged Tissues

A car accident often causes damage to the muscles, ligaments, and nerves in the back and neck, resulting in varying degrees of pain, stiffness, and loss of mobility. There are several different chiropractic treatments that can successfully promote healing and alleviate pain in damaged tissues.

Bone Injuries

Fractures and other types of damage to the joints in the spinal column can occur as a result of a sudden impact in a car accident, as well as damage to the bony protrusions that prevent over-twisting or over-extension of the spine.Bone injuries – Fractures and other types of damage to the joints in the spinal column can occur as a result of a sudden impact in a car accident, as well as damage to the bony protrusions that prevent over-twisting or over-extension of the spine.

Car Accident Chiropractor Treatment Methods

Chiropractic medicine focuses on the idea that many types of physical disorders can be caused by damage, disorders, and injuries within the musculoskeletal system. That includes all the bones, joints, muscles, nerves, and ligaments that hold it all together and make it work.

They especially concentrate on the spine. Your spine supports the weight of your whole body and contains the nerves that serve your entire body. When things are wrong with the spine, the effects can often be felt in other areas of your body.

A car accident chiropractor is trained in manipulating the spine, correcting the alignment of the vertebrae so that it carries that load in the way it’s naturally supposed to do, relieving the cause of the pain. They do this through the manipulation of the points of the spine that are out of alignment. They also practice manipulation and massage of the joints, shoulders, and neck, wherever pain occurs. They may also recommend exercises to strengthen the muscles in your back along with changes in posture, diet, lifestyle, and work habits. Chiropractic medicine is focused on improving the strength, flexibility, health, and wellness of the entire body.

Your car accident chiropractor can usually give you relief from pain within a few hours of your first session. However, longer-lasting relief will normally require you to follow your chiropractor’s recommendations for exercise, nutrition, rest, and lifestyle changes for a period of time and several follow-up treatment sessions.
