Auto Accident Care in Eagan

Man holding neckCar collisions are the leading cause of injury, responsible for 40% of injuries to the spine. Though symptoms may not show up for days, weeks or months, even a slow crash can cause problems.

If you have been in an automobile accident, your body has gone through trauma that can affect you for years to come. At Cornerstone Family Chiropractic, our experienced chiropractors are trained to help you overcome these traumatic injuries.

The Aftermath of an Accident

Your spine is not meant to withstand the impact made by a car crash. The force of the spine can cause numerous problems such as disc herniation, whiplash, compression fractures and spondylolisthesis.

Whiplash is a particularly common injury that results from the sudden movement of the head and neck. The result can be neck muscles and ligaments with severe damage if not treated promptly. Back injuries are also common, with spinal trauma causing nerve damage that affects the rest of the body, often into the arms, hands, legs and feet.

Early intervention can help you overcome whiplash and other forms of pain.

Getting Started With Chiropractic Care

Our thorough new patient process involves a consultation, examination and X-rays on your first visit. Once we understand your problems, you will receive a full report of our findings and our best recommendations to you. We typically recommend massage therapy along with chiropractic care to overcome your muscle-related issues. If necessary, we can refer you out to have an MRI done.

We can also assist you with finding an attorney if you have not secured the services of one yet.

Tips to Improve Auto Accident Injury

The only way to correct misalignments in your spine is to see a chiropractor. We are trained to assess your spine, locate areas that have been forced out of alignment and make the necessary corrections according to your individual needs.

  • Apply ice to areas of discomfort 3-4 times daily
