Your auto insurance policy covers chiropractic care. When appropriate, it is imperative that you get your spine re-aligned as quickly and gently as possible following a collision. The longer you wait, the more your body tries to compensate for any structural problems that may have happened as a result of the crash and this can make your injury take longer to treat. We find that patients tend to heal much faster if they get adjusted within the first 48 hours following an accident. Let our staff know if this is your situation and we will get you a same-day appointment if at all possible.
Special Note: Most people who come into a chiropractor’s office following a car accident have been rear-ended. The best protection you have in a rear-end collision is your headrest. Make sure that it is at least one inch higher than the top of your head and that the back of your head is within one inch of your headrest for optimal protection.
