Car Accident Care in Torrance, CA
Car accidents in Torrance can happen all of a sudden. No one is ready for a car accident to happen, and the hassle of fixing your car, insurance, and injury is not pleasant. If you are in a minor “fender bender” or high-speed collision, a sudden force is inflicted on your body. Many people will sustain whiplash or hurt their lower back. If they are holding on to a steering wheel, they also can injure their hips, knees, or arms. Sometimes an airbag may deploy and could cause injury to your neck, head, and even back
If a person is fairly healthy, normally low to moderate impact collisions will cause minimal symptoms. When someone already has neck or back issues, they may suffer worse pain from a minor accident than someone that is healthy that was in a more severe accident.
Typical Injuries Torrance Chiropractors Treat after a Car Accident are
- Back Pain
- Herniated Disc
- Neck Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Knee Pain
When car accident trauma occurs and is not treated correctly within a timely manner, serious health problems may occur. In fact, you may not think you have been injured after a car accident, and then start to experience discomfort or headaches several months after the fact. This is why you should always visit a good Chiropractor right away for an evaluation, even if you think there may not be a serious injury to blame.
What is a “Good Chiropractor”
A “good Chiropractor” should have graduated from a reputable Chiropractic School in the United States. This good Chiropractor should have at least 5-1- year’s experience working with car accident patients. This good Chiropractor should be busy and have good reviews. This good Chiropractor should examine the regions of the complaint first, before treating the patient.
At Back to Healthcare Chiropractic, you will take a history with the treating Doctor, then be thoroughly examined to find the cause of your pain. We use radiographs (x-rays), and or MRI scans to help determine the true cause of the problem. A good Chiropractor will give each patient a report of findings to demonstrate the cause problem and plan with the patient to get better. A good Chiropractor will be knowledgeable in personal injury reporting and complete reports to the Insurance Company and or Attorneys in a timely manner. Most important, this good Chiropractor will be great at treating an injured car accident patient.

Should I Take Pain Medication?
Many times, people are prescribed pain drugs or use over-the-counter medications. When taking these drugs, they will inhibit the nerves to feel better, but will not fix anything. These patients will end up continuing to injure themselves. Chiropractic care gets to the root of the problem, provides correction, and promotes healing. Considering there is an epidemic of opioid abuse in our nation, many people are seeking chiropractic care as a drug-free way to get pain relief.
When someone is in pain from an auto accident, the body is mechanically jarred. This mechanical effect could cause soft tissue to be injured and nerves to be compressed. As a matter of fact, when a patient is in pain, research proves an interference needs to be placed on the nerves to create pain. Without nerve interference, patients will not feel pain. When compressing nerves in the body, either spinal or muscular nerves, it's better to have a good Chiropractor detect the cause of this nerve compression. Most Doctors will numb the pain with harmful pain medications. Some think anti-inflammatory drugs are better, but biochemically these anti-inflammatory drugs inhibit the nervous system in the same manner. Good Doctors of Chiropractic are proven to help car accident patients very effectively. Hopefully, you will make the right decision.
