How to Recognize If You’ve Been Injured in a Car Accident

Symptoms of car accident injuries can often be cumulative rather than immediate, making it hard to gauge whether you have sustained an injury right away. 

Even if you are not experiencing pain, you want to look out for other symptoms like: 

  • Numbness or tingling sensation in the limbs
  • Unexplained headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle stiffness or muscle spasms
  • Restlessness or problems sleeping
  • Inability to focus

If you’ve been in a crash, it’s important to consult a healthcare provider right away to prevent your symptoms from worsening. A car accident chiropractor can help you recover from auto injuries like whiplash, headache, and neck pain.

Chiropractic Care After a Car Accident: Why You Shouldn’t Wait to Be Seen

Immediately after an auto collision, it’s common for people to wait to get treatment. Most people think, “I’ll just wait to see how I feel next week.” This approach can be a mistake.

A number of scientific studies show that when a patient gets early treatment soon after a crash, they have better outcomes than those patients who wait.

During a crash, the tissues of your neck can be stretched or torn. You may not feel pain right away but as the tissues become swollen and inflamed, patients often wake up the next day with a sore, stiff neck.

Pain and stiffness are signs of trauma to the ligaments and muscles of your neck. The body’s response to injury is to restrict movement and to heal the injury by sending white blood cells to the area. Your body will then begin repairing the injured area by laying down scar tissue.

The problem with scar tissue is that each joint in your neck has a fairly limited range of motion. Scar tissue reduces that motion even more, and if you don’t receive proper treatment, that can result in permanent limited mobility, chronic pain, and even spinal degeneration of the joints.

Getting early treatment will break up this pattern by increasing movement in the injured area and by preventing the development of scar tissue.

What Clients Are Saying About Our Portland Car Accident Chiropractic Services

I stumbled upon this place by doing a quick google search after being in a bad car accident (totaled car) early in my pregnancy. With the convenient location & great reviews, I had to give them a call, & was instantly greeted with excellent customer service. They have accommodated my pregnancy going above & beyond to make sure I get the most effective care possible all the way from my 1st to 3rd trimester. They also have massage therapy & acupuncture included right in their office building. The staff & Dr. McClaren are super personable whenever I go in. I have received chiropractic care in the past elsewhere & never had such an enjoyable experience during a difficult time. Thank you Cascade Spine & Injury Center!

After having a car accident in late July I was in a lot of pain and looking for something help.  As soon as I called Cascade Spine & injury center they consoled me and immediately booked me with their acupuncturist who is amazing and has helped me so much. Their massage team is also amazing, patient, and kind. Dr. McClaren & his team really takes the time to listen and explain the treatment plan that works best for you. Recovering from an accident is stressful and worrisome but after finding Dr. McClaren and his team I feel a lot better.

I made an appointment with Cascade Spine and Injury after a car accident that totaled my vehicle. From the beginning, the receptionists were very quick to find an available appointment that would work for me. Dr. McClaren was very nice and treated me very respectfully as a patient. He was able to determine the extent of my injuries and create a plan to get me back to 100%. I didn’t realize how much damage the collision caused until I started to heal. The team at Cascade Spine and Injury is very well-rounded. With the most amazing acupuncturist and massage team. This team was amazing at healing mentally, physically, and emotionally. They’re really there for you!
