After an auto collision, most often people are concerned with damage to their vehicle. It’s important to recognize that you may have suffered soft tissue injury to your body that may not be initially evident. Chiropractic care is ideal for soft tissue injuries. At the time of impact, vertebrae can be misaligned causing long-term injury and often discomfort and pain. Chiropractic care is uniquely qualified to realign vertebrae that are shifted out of position.
