Auto Accident Chiropractic in Gastonia

person with neck pain after auto accidentCar accidents can hit your body hard, whether you were in a high-speed collision or fender bender. We have experience providing exceptional auto accident care at Bannon Clinic of Chiropractic, P.A. to help you recover and reach your maximum healing potential.

While the term “whiplash” is overused, neck and back injuries are the most common issues patients experience after a crash. During an impact, the body is accelerated forward thereby extending the neck. This is followed by a rapid deceleration (flexion) of the head and neck. This level of force will overstretch the ligaments and muscles thereby causing injury and pain.

Nipping Injury in the Bud

Your body responds to areas of stress by generating scar tissue, which can’t stretch, twist, or bend properly. If unaddressed, auto accident injuries can quickly develop a lot of scar tissue that may last years and decreased function with increased pain.

Old injuries are much harder to heal. Many patients who missed initial care during the acute phase of their injury regret it later, as they face years of pain followed by a much harder recovery.

Individuals that receive early chiropractic care have much better outcomes. Instead of ignoring pain or masking symptoms with medication, it’s best to respond quickly and initiate chiropractic care, before your overstretched muscles and ligaments are changed forever by the inflammation associated with your injury. By stabilizing your spine and joints, we can limit long-term issues like inflexibility and pain.

What to Expect

At Bannon Clinic of Chiropractic, P.A., we work directly with insurance companies and handle the paperwork for you. Our office accepts attorney liens. Your first appointment should take 30-60 minutes. Dr. Bannon or Dr. Katro will take X-rays if you haven’t had them already. Please bring any records from previous medical care you’ve received for your injury, as well as an accident report and digital discs or physical copies of any MRIs or CT scans.

The length of care depends on your health prior to the accident and the severity of your injury. Many average cases resolve within two months. Patients with significant injuries may require a more extended treatment regimen.
