How We Can Help with Pain Following Auto Accident
You may have done everything you could to stay safe, and there’s a high likelihood that a seatbelt or helmet may have saved your life.
With that said, you may have still experienced injuries. These injuries can make it difficult to work, go to school, or even do things around the house.
The treatment at Achieve Health and Wellness provides you with the care you need to get back to work and your life in general without pain, discomfort, and range of motion problems.
Common Auto Accident Injuries
There are a few common injuries that can occur during an auto accident. These include:
- Whiplash. Whiplash is a very common injury. Your head being snapped back and forth quickly can severely hurt the neck and strain the cervical ligaments.
- Herniated Disc. Your spine is cushioned by a series of discs that prevent inflammation and pain from building up. During an accident, you may herniate a disc—which leads to shooting pains up and down your legs and arms.
- Knee Sprain. You may jolt forward during a car accident and hit your knee on the dashboard or bump into something on your way down on a motorcycle. This can lead to a knee sprain that causes swelling and pain, while also making it difficult to walk.
Dr. Fisher is an expert at diagnosing injuries that are caused by auto accidents and then providing outstanding treatment to address not only the pain but also the root cause. Often, Dr. Fisher will provide adjustments and/or physical therapy to address the injury caused by an auto accident.
Adjustments for Car Accidents
There are many ways that adjustments help to provide relief for those suffering from an injury due to an auto accident. Chiropractic adjustments can help provide relief for the neck, back, shoulders, and knees of a patient.
Achieve offers chiropractic adjustments to help alleviate the pain, stiffness, and mobility issues sustained during an accident.
How Do Spinal Adjustments Work?
The spine is a very important part of the body and connects to different areas, including your nerve center. If you have a misalignment, it can cause pain, discomfort, and other issues. Whether this misalignment is from bulging discs, slipped discs, or anything else, the pain can make many regular activities much more difficult. A spine injury can cause back pain, neck pain, sciatica, and even headaches!
Spinal adjustments are a great way to treat these injuries. There are a few different ways in which spinal adjustments can be performed. Often, a chiropractor will use their hands or a special instrument. They also may use a motorized table that slowly separates and moves outwards. This helps to stretch out the spine and provide space for the discs of the patient. It also helps to relieve tension.
Spinal adjustments are generally painless, and they are non-invasive. You can expect some soreness, though.

Do I Need an Adjustment?
If you are unsure if you are a candidate for an adjustment, schedule an appointment with Achieve Health and Wellness for an initial consultation and examination.
During this exam, Dr. Fisher will perform a physical examination and possibly take x-rays. After this has been completed, a custom plan of treatment can be put in place. For an auto accident, this may include an adjustment, physical therapy, and cold laser therapy.
Physical Therapy for Car Accidents
Physical therapy is a common rehabilitation method for auto accidents. It involves the use of exercises and stretches to help relieve injuries, reduce pain, and return strength and mobility.
Dr. Fisher Physical Therapy Techniques
There are different treatment techniques that fall under the umbrella of “physical therapy.” These include stretches, massage therapy, corrective exercises, and more. Dr. Fisher uses a variety of different techniques to address injuries due to auto accidents.
The massage therapy methods performed include active release technique and myofascial/trigger point release therapy. Soft tissue mobilization helps with breaking up adhesions and scar tissue, easing tension and pain, and increasing circulation.
Corrective exercises and stretches help to reduce swelling and inflammation, improve balance and coordination, balance the spinal system, maximize mobility, and improve endurance and strength. With postural training and assessment, patients can learn to move in a more efficient way. This reduces pain and discomfort while increasing energy.
