Auto Injury Chiropractic Care at The Chiropractic Wellness Center of Cary

100 million people get injured each year in motor vehicle crashes, according to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics. Most of these people do not seek medical attention for minor injuries like whiplash. This can result in chronic pains, months or years after the accident. At Chiropractic Wellness Center of Cary, we offer chiropractic care to patients suffering from an auto injury in Cary.  Dr. Tammy Atkinson and her team of doctors offer auto accident injury treatment.

The center provides quality care for patients suffering from chronic pain, spinal injuries and neck pain. They use advanced treatment techniques using modern chiropractic technology and equipment. The chiropractors, skilled in pain reduction, ensure the patient recovers in no time. Listed below are some common injuries from a car accident seen in Cary, NC.

Neck Injuries

Whiplash symptoms include neck tightness, decreased motion, pain knotted muscles, stiffness, and headaches.

Chest Injuries

Blunt force trauma to the chest area can result in collapsed lungs, broken ribs, internal bleeding, cardiac arrest, and damage to the internal organs, abdomen, and pelvis. 

Head Injuries

Head injuries cause skull fractures, vision problems, mild concussions, comas, cognitive problems, and traumatic brain injuries.

Herniated Disks

A herniated disk irritates nearby nerves and can cause pain, weakness, and numbness on the leg or arm. 


Sciatica symptoms include bad leg cramps with sharp pain, weakness, numbness, tingling sensation, or a burning down the leg.  

Back Injuries

Back injuries result to loss of control to the hands, legs, feet, arms, and other body parts. In worse situations, victims become paralyzed.  Other car accidents in Cary lead to injuries to the legs, arms, feet, and hands.  More serious injuries include damage to the ligaments, broken bones, severed limbs, and death. 

When to Seek Chiropractic Care After an Auto Injury

Dr. Atkinson recommends visiting the Center immediately after the accident. This ensures a thorough diagnosis before any serious symptoms develop.  Remember to file a claim with the insurer and secure it with a lawyer immediately after the accident. This is because your insurer will place a time limit for treatment after the accident. Once this window closes, you cannot claim treatment.
