Common injuries in car accidents that chiropractic care can help with


This injury is common in car accidents, particularly rear-end collisions. It involves damage to the neck's soft tissues due to the sudden jerk experienced during impact. Symptoms can include neck pain, stiffness, and reduced range of motion.

Back injuries

Injuries to the back vary widely, from simple strains and sprains to more severe injuries like herniated discs. The force exerted during a car accident can stress the spine significantly, resulting in pain and decreased mobility.

Spinal cord injuries

Accidents can lead to spinal cord injuries with severe consequences. Chiropractic care helps to foster healing and plays a significant role in managing symptoms and improving quality of life.

Muscle trauma

Muscle trauma can result from accidents or overuse, leading to pain and limited mobility. Our chiropractors at FreeForm Chiropractic specialize in assessing and treating muscle injuries, promoting healing, and restoring strength and flexibility to affected areas.


Neuropathy can cause tingling, numbness, and pain due to nerve damage. Our holistic approach includes chiropractic care to address underlying causes, helping to alleviate neuropathic symptoms and improve overall well-being.

Neck pain

Neck pain can be a painful symptom that lingers after a car accident. At FreeForm Chiropractic, we offer personalized solutions to alleviate neck discomfort, focusing on spinal alignment and muscle balance to provide long-lasting relief.


Car accidents can lead to debilitating headaches caused by whiplash or trauma. FreeForm Chiropractic specializes in treating post-accident headaches, addressing the root causes through chiropractic adjustments and holistic approaches to relieving chronic or acute headache pain to restore health and the joy of living.

After a car accident

After a car accident, seeking medical attention right away is crucial, even if you feel fine. Some injuries, such as deep muscle bruising, whiplash, back pain, neck pain, or other painful symptoms, may not appear immediately but will arise in the days or weeks following a car accident. As chiropractors, we can provide a thorough assessment to identify any potential issues that might have emerged from the accident.

The importance of not ignoring pain after an accident

Pain or discomfort following a car accident can indicate an injury that requires attention. Ignoring this pain can lead to chronic issues, such as persistent back or neck pain, headaches, and reduced mobility. Early chiropractic intervention can help alleviate these symptoms and prevent long-term complications.
