Chiropractic Adjustment After a Car Accident


What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment is a manual manipulation of the spine to reduce pain and improve the physical function of the body. This reflects the belief that correcting spinal and joint irregularities have a therapeutic effect and enhances your overall health.

A chiropractic doctor (or chiropractor) usually performs the chiropractic adjustment in an office and a patient can be adjusted from one time (such as for a pinched nerve) to a few times per week for more serious conditions to alleviate pain.

How Do They Help?

A chiropractic adjustment is most often sought by people to relieve pain for conditions such as low back pain, neck pain, and headaches.

Benefits of spinal chiropractic adjustments include a wide range of relief from a quick onset of pain to long term preventive care and overall wellness. Overall, chiropractic adjustments will help the bones, muscles, and tissues in your body to work together to help you feel better.

What to Expect in a Chiropractic Adjustment

1. Relax Your Muscles Before Your Adjustment 

At Axcess, before you get a chiropractic adjustment, typically we help your muscles relax with a massage chair, or by using e-stim and heat. Typically you spend about 15 minutes relaxing before we adjust you.


2. Align Your Spine & Neck with a Certified Chiropractor

During your chiropractic adjustment, you will lay down face first on the adjustment table.

Here we will feel your back and neck and then we will gently adjust your back.

Depending on where your experience pain we may apply some lotion that helps relieve pain. Typically, the lotion is applied to your lower back and your neck.

Then you will turn and lay on each of your sides where we will adjust your lower spine. After this, you will lie face up and we will then adjust your neck, shoulders or other extremities.

During an adjustment, it is usual to hear cracks and pops. We will also ask you questions throughout your adjustment to ensure it is helping you.

3. Schedule Your Next Appointment 

After your appointment, you will check out at the front desk and schedule your next appointment or additional therapies such as a massage. We will also make sure we help you with any additional resources you need such as a referral for imaging, or information about stretches you can do to help with tension in your neck or back.

4. Go Home and Feel Better 

Sometimes after a chiropractic adjustment, you might feel discomfort in the spinal joints, muscle soreness, headache or fatigue. This experience is normal and shouldn’t make you worry. Typically the discomfort will resolve within 24-48 hours.

How We Help Our Patients After Car Accidents in Utah

When her car swerved off the road and rolled two and a half times, a 24-yr old university student amazingly seemed to walk away with only a few scratches.

However, when the adrenalin wore off, her neck, shoulder, and back pain increased dramatically, making even the simplest of tasks a monumental effort. She even debated stepping down off her university ballroom dance team due to the fact she could not turn her head without pain.

Doctors said she would just get better over time, but in seeking help through chiropractic care and being adjusted twice per week, she was able to soon return to her normal schooling activities and ballroom dancing competitions within a few weeks and was able to successfully graduate five months later.
