Get Relief From Auto Accident-Related Injuries

Car and auto accidents can happen in an instant. One minute you’re driving home after a long day at the office, the next your entire world is turned upside down. If you’re searching for a natural alternative to pain management, chiropractic treatment may be the solution.

Chiropractors do not prescribe medication or recommend invasive surgeries. Instead, they believe the body has the ability to naturally heal itself. A chiropractor will provide spinal adjustments that can address misalignments in the spine, improve nervous system function, remove nerve interference, and boost immune system function.

How A Chiropractor in Sioux City Can Help With Auto Accident-Related Injuries

Whiplash injuries can involve spinal misalignments, which, if not treated, can cause permanent damage down the road.

Some auto accident injuries will not present symptoms for several hours, days, or even months following a collision. Due to this, it’s crucial that you seek chiropractic treatment as soon as possible following an accident to prevent serious complications in the future.

What to Expect at Your Chiropractic Appointment

At your first appointment at Cornerstone Chiropractic Health Center, you’ll be greeted by one of our friendly, knowledgeable staff members who will provide the paperwork you must fill out before you see your chiropractor. This paperwork will request information, such as your medical history, pain level, symptoms, and other information that can help your chiropractor learn about your past and current medical issues, and discuss your health goals.


Initial Evaluation

Your chiropractor will perform a full spinal analysis and evaluation to identify any misalignments. After a physical assessment, they will create a personalized treatment plan that will include their exam findings, recommended treatments and therapies, treatment frequency, and health goals.



To realign the spine, a chiropractor relies on spinal correction. Treatment can relieve pressure on nerves, can address muscle tension, eliminate muscle spasms and can reduce pain and inflammation. Reduced inflammation and pain can make a significant difference in how a patient feels.

Soreness and stiffness after an auto accident can impact mobility. A spinal adjustment can stimulate the body’s ability to naturally heal itself, faster, and will enhance mobility and mobilize the spine.


Post-Treatment Care

At Cornerstone Chiropractic Health Center, we know how overwhelming life after a serious auto accident can be. If you have sustained injuries, you may also be in extreme pain that is affecting your ability to carry out basic activities, go back to work, or sleep well at night. Our experienced and licensed chiropractors can help alleviate your pain and discomfort, improve your mobility, and decrease inflammation and discomfort. In some cases, a series of adjustments may be needed to continue to help your body recover and heal itself.

Your personalized care plan will detail what treatments are needed. This will depend on the type of injuries you sustained, your ongoing progress, and your health goals.

Get The Results You Deserve

Because the effects of auto collisions are often delayed, receiving a full spinal analysis and evaluation following an accident is extremely important. Whether you are dealing with neck pain, stiffness, or other difficulties, chiropractic care can help you recover and feel like you did prior to the accident. If you or a loved one has recently been involved in an auto accident, make sure to give us a call today at (605) 540-4004.

Common Questions Our Patients Have About Car Accident Injuries

How Often Should You Go to the Chiropractor After a Car Accident?

Treatment frequency will depend on injury type and severity of the injury. In many cases, a chiropractor will want to see a patient who sustained auto accident injuries several times per week following an accident. Once the patient’s condition is well-managed, treatment frequency may drop accordingly.

How Long Should You Go to a Chiropractor for Whiplash?

Recovery time following an auto accident varies upon the severity of the injury. However, the average recovery time for whiplash injuries following an auto accident ranges from six weeks up to six months.
