With an auto accident happening every few seconds, there are countless people who suffer collision-related injuries every year. Any part of your body can be affected by an auto accident though certain areas are more susceptible than others. Some people suffer a few bumps and bruises while others must face much more serious injuries. Regardless of the type of injury sustained in a collision, it is important for everyone involved to be evaluated by a physician when physically capable of doing so.

Car accidents can be one of the most frightening and confusing experiences that a person can go through. Often the first thing that a person is concerned about following an automobile accident is the damage to their vehicle or their insurance coverage. This results in them neglecting the most important part, which is their individual health. Seeking proper care in a timely fashion is the most vital aspect of determining the overall outcome of your condition. This article is here to help you understand how chiropractors help car accident patients in Baton Rouge LA. We hope it helps you to avoid the long-term problems we so often see.

Chiropractic Baton Rouge LA Auto Injury

Did you know…

There are several factors that can influence the types of injuries you may sustain in a car accident. Examples include:

  • The speed of your vehicle and other vehicles involved in the accident
  • Whether you are wearing your seatbelt
  • Whether the airbags deploy during the collision
  • Where your vehicle was hit (i.e. side, front or rear)
  • Your posture during the accident


What is whiplash? Whiplash is one of the most common injuries sustained in auto accidents. It occurs when the neck is thrust forward and then abruptly backward on impact. Whiplash typically causes inflammation and damage to the soft tissues of the upper back and neck, which may lead to stiffness, pain, limited mobility and headaches.

What other types of injuries are common car accidents? People involved in collisions here often complain of back pain or stiffness in the body's joints or extremities. Spinal fracture/compression, herniated and/or bulging discs, strained connective tissues (muscles and/or tendons), and sprained spinal ligaments are just a few of the injuries accident victims may face after a collision. Without intervention, some may face a lifetime of pain and discomfort.
