Chiropractic Rehabilitation for Auto Accident Injuries
Lafayette Auto Injury Chiropractor: It is critical that you seek care from our Lafayette chiropractor immediately after a car accident; allowing the effects of whiplash to go untreated can induce long-term pain. The severity of the physical effects of a car accident are not always felt immediately. It can take days, weeks or even months for major symptoms to show up, which is why chiropractic care is essential to maintaining the health of a spine that has suffered a trauma.
Common Conditions After an Auto Accident
- Neck pain or lower back pain
- Tinging, numbness or pain in the limbs
- Loss of range of motion
- Dizziness, headaches or blurred vision
- Trouble walking
Spinal Decompression Therapy is an Amazing Non-Surgical Treatment Option for Patients Who are Injured in an Automobile Accident
Because the effects of whiplash are often delayed, receiving a full spinal analysis and posture screening after an accident is extremely important. It serves as the initial step to formulating a treatment program. Whether it is neck pain, soreness or burning soft tissue pain, spinal decompression therapy can the body back to how it used to post-accident.
The treatment is not only safe and painless but also comfortable and relaxing. Our spinal decompression table allows us to gently separate the vertebrae from each other creating a vacuum inside the discs promoting diffusion of water, oxygen and other nutrient-rich fluids from the outside of the discs to the inside. Over time, the results of this therapy are quite dramatic in healing disc injuries in the neck and lower back. Car accident and whiplash patients find this treatment therapy incredibly effective in helping them to heal quickly.

Working with Insurance (Auto Accident Rehabilitation is Often Covered with Zero Out of Pocket Expense)
Our office works with many types of insurance. Our office can counsel you on how to file a personal injury claim, or you can review our insurance information page for more details.
Personal injury protection (PIP) coverage is mandatory for nearly all auto insurance policies. With PIP coverage in place, you and all the passengers in the car are insured regardless of who is at fault for an accident (typically up to $15,000). It also covers you if you are a pedestrian or a cyclist. PIP insurance covers medical expenses and lost wages and will pay for your care of injuries, including costs and co-pays for chiropractic care, out-of-pocket prescription costs, or other similar costs.
