Have you been in an Automobile Collision?

Chiropractic care should be one of your first stops after a car accident. If you were involved in a major collision or even a minor finder-bender you should go see your chiropractor. Seeing a chiropractor in the acute stage of injury can help prevent chronic conditions from occurring. Many people tend to believe that after a minor accident they don’t need to see a chiropractor. However, the best solution for people after a car accident is to see a chiropractor. This helps you to prevent having to involve drugs or surgery. 

Here are some other benefits of Chiropractic Care after a collision:

  1. Injuries aren’t always major or obvious
    Injuries that aren’t always apparent immediately can be Whiplash, sprains, or strains to different parts of the body. Broken bones, bruising, cuts or lacerations can be easily seen right away after a car accident. Dizziness, headaches, soreness, and Whiplash are just a few symptoms that could take up to a few hours or days to be noticed after the initial motor vehicle collision.  The best way to deal with these symptoms is to catch them early. Ignoring these injuries can potentially increase your chances of long-term chronic pain.

  2. Non-invasive Treatment
    Drugs and Surgery should be your very last resort. Chiropractic adjustments and treatments help realign the spine and joints, and relax muscles reducing pain and promoting healing. Chiropractic is meant to help your improve your ability to heal itself, help you instantly start your healing process, not meant to instantly make you feel better.

  3. Avoid Long-Term Pain
    Even minor accidents can result in subsequent injuries that limit your capabilities of daily living. These minor injuries can develop into chronic long-term pain. Even Whiplash symptoms can continue long after the accident. Go see your Chiropractor after your accident and prevent your injury from becoming a long-term chronic, or even a larger condition.

  4. Restores/improves Range of Motion
    Suffering from a Neck or Back injury from a car accident decreases your Range of Motion in your areas of inflammation. When an accident occurs your body’s natural response is to cause inflammation in the area. When there is inflammation this slows down the healing process and prevents you from restoring your range of motion.

  • "Wow. We always leave here feeling so much better. Dr. Kaitlin is wonderful. They leave time open on Saturday's for us to come since we can't during the week. Not only do we get adjusted but she has shown my husband and I both different stretches to do to help out stiffness and soreness til we come back. I will never change chiropractic care as long as those doors are open."
  • "Dr. Purvis is a true medical professional who actually talks & listens to her patients. (A rare find in this day & age.)
    Since I have 2 fairly rare diseases that affect my spine - adhesive arachnoiditis & ehlers danlos syndrome- I was afraid to go to a chiropractor. To my surprise, she knew & understood those 2 diseases & has helped me tremendously!! I cannot highly recommend her enough!"

  • "Purvis Chiropractic has a very professional atmosphere!! Dr Cait brings the sweet thunder. I walked out feeling brand new!"
  • "I have had nothing but positive experiences at Purvis. I have had massages and adjustments and all have been great! I highly suggest this facility!"
  • "I had never been to a chiropractor before....they scared me honestly. My neck had been hurting for months along with small bouts of vertigo until this past week when I was spinning so bad I couldn't stand it. My sweet husband made the appointment for me with Katie. She taught me the epley maneuver, worked on my neck and back and although my vertigo isn't fully gone, I have had so much improvement! My neck is feeling better as well. Katie made me feel comfortable, told me everything she was going to do before doing it and I am so appreciative of her."
  • "Dr. Walter is a fantastic clinician and a wonderful person. I am so thankful I came to her with a difficult medical issue that was rudely dismissed by another healthcare proffessional. She immediately got to work with research and diagnostics and treated me with such respect and care in the process. Oh, and she does great adjustments on top of it!"
