Auto Accidents

According to the Insurance Research Council, nearly 1/3 of all claimants injured in motor vehicle accidents (MVA’s) seek treatment from chiropractors. This is an impressive number given that the National Safety Council (NSC) has determined there to be more than 12 million MVA’s annually involving more than 20 million vehicles.

The reason individuals choose chiropractic care for treatment of injuries sustained in MVA’s is simple, chiropractic care is exceptional in the treatment of soft tissue injuries, especially of the spine. Any accident, no matter how mild, can create nerve-damaging misalignments. Since the most common injuries associated with MVA’s are sprains and strains of the spinal muscles and ligaments, it’s only natural that chiropractic be the treatment of choice.
