Auto Accident FAQs

If you have ever been in an auto accident, you may know some of the most common injuries are neck pain, back pain, and knee pain. Even if you leave the wreck thinking you haven't suffered an auto accident injury, it is crucial to be checked out by a chiropractor at a trusted clinic like Multicare Health Clinic in Sioux City, IA, as soon as possible. Although you may feel okay initially, pain can show up in the weeks or months afterward.


Why should I see a chiropractor? 

It's a good idea to visit a chiropractor after an accident, but especially a car wreck, because the impact of the accident may have caused new issues or irritating existing conditions. For example, your back may have already been out of alignment due to another injury. Pain from a previous injury may not have been enough for you to notice, but the wreck made it worse, and now you are experiencing pain.

What will my first session be like?

When you visit our chiropractor for the first time, our doctor will ask for details about your health in general and he may need to take x-rays. But our injury chiropractor also needs details about the wreck and will ask if you are experiencing neck pain, back pain, or knee pain. Because chiropractic care takes a holistic view of your health, he will also ask questions like what type of job you have and how sedentary your lifestyle is to get a better idea of your overall health and wellness.

Do treatments hurt? 

No, our chiropractor's job is to gently perform techniques to return you to a pain-free life. If at any point anything hurts, let him know, and he will readjust the treatment.

Will I need physical therapy?

It depends on our doctor's findings during the exam. In addition to alignments and stretches, our doctor may also ask that you do specific exercises to help your condition. These can be done in the office or at home. He may also suggest massage therapy as a form of relief and to help keep your muscles and tendons loose.
