Auto Injury Care Q&A

What is auto injury care?

Auto injury care is a chiropractic subspecialty that diagnoses and treats car crash-related injuries. If you’re in a car accident, call to schedule a complimentary consult with Dr Chang and, request auto-injury evaluation at Chirowell regardless of your symptoms. After an exam and a series of X-rays, Dr. Chang can make custom treatment recommendations.

What types of injuries can benefit from auto injury care?

At Chirowell, Dr. Chang uses auto injury care to treat various injuries, including:

  • Whiplash
  • Herniated discs
  • Strained muscles, tendons, and ligaments
  • Concussions
  • Dislocated joints
  • Bruises
  • Swelling

If you’re in a car accident and have musculoskeletal pain, it’s important to identify the underlying cause and prevent it from worsening.

What happens during an auto injury care visit?

Dr. Chang asks about your accident and the symptoms you’re experiencing, including how fast you were driving, if you were hit from the front, back, or side, and where the pain occurs. 

Next, he completes a chiropractic exam. Dr. Chang runs his hands across your back, neck, and shoulders and asks you to move your head and arms. He assesses your range of motion, muscle strength, and flexibility. 

Dr. Chang tests your reflexes and the sensation in your limbs. He also orders diagnostic imaging, like X-rays, an MRI, or a CT scan, looking at your bones and soft tissues.

How are auto injuries treated?

At Chirowell, Dr. Chang treats auto injuries using minimally invasive and holistic treatments. Depending on your age and the severity of your symptoms, he might recommend:

  • Zone Chiropractic adjustments
  • Manual therapy
  • Physical therapy
  • Spinal decompression
  • Whole-body vibration
  • Spinal hygiene
  • Ice and heat therapy
  • Electric muscle stimulation with transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulators (TENS)

Dr. Chang’s goal is to relieve the pain, reduce inflammation, and encourage your body’s natural recovery process.

How can I reduce my risk of an auto accident injury?

There’s no way to prevent auto accident injuries entirely, but driving defensively can reduce your risk. Dr. Chang recommends always wearing your seatbelt, driving the posted speed limit, and regularly checking your rear and side view mirrors. You should also avoid aggressive behavior, like tailgating.
