Auto Accident

Treat Your Whiplash Injury Following an Auto Accident

Auto accidents, even slow ones, can be traumatic. It is not something you can prepare for. The accident occurs out of nowhere and may leave you rattled. If you were seriously injured in an auto accident, you likely headed off to the emergency room. Even if you were not noticeably injured, you still should go see your doctor to make sure you are not suffering from any underlying injuries.


There are several injuries your doctor may not be able to detect or treat. This is where our South Burlington, VT, chiropractor comes in. Often, people involved in an auto accident suffer from whiplash. This in turn can cause bones in your neck and spine to shit out of position, leading to sore, misaligned muscles. You might also experience headaches when you normally did not previously due to a pinched nerve in your neck or back. Lower back pain may also follow an auto accident. At Chiropractic First Family Wellness Center, we have years of experience identifying and treating auto accident injuries.

Whiplash Can Be A Serious Injury

When you are in an auto accident, your torso will be restrained to your seat thanks to your seat belt. However, your neck is not secured. This means your neck will continue to move forward until the body pulls it back, creating a whip-like sensation. This is what causes the bones in your neck and spine to push, pull, and twist out of proper alignment, leading to the assortment of injuries you might be suffering from.

If you are dealing with whiplash or other injuries following an auto accident, you will want to have it addressed as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the longer injury symptoms have to develop.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I was very impressed with the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Anderson. I had received chiropractic in the past for my neck pain, but not to this level of care. After only a few sessions, my symptoms began to disappear, especially my neck pain, and I know I would not have been able to perform to my everyday work functions without the treatment I received."
    Neck Pain
  • "I have benefitted tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Anderson. Not only has the adjustments helped alleviate my stiffness and aches, but it has helped me have more energy and just feel more balanced over all. A few months ago, I was able to resume a favorite hobby of mine: golf. Due to my previous pain, I never thought that’d be possible."
    Back Pain
  • "Dr. Anderson has allowed me to be headache free for quite some time now. I used to have daily nagging headaches that often would turn into a migraine leaving me unable to function. For the longest time, I thought I could just keep taking medication to have the pain subside."
  • "As a court reporter, using my hands to type on a daily basis is a requirement. The work is speedy and can often last for hours at a time. Several months ago, every movement I made became excruciatingly painful. I started seeing Dr. Anderson and he put together a program for me that helped right away. He stressed the importance of my posture and proper hand and arm placement."
    Carpal Tunnel
  • "It's been 7 months since I got wiped out by a monster wave. I sought treatment at the hospital and they took x-rays and said everything seemed normal, that I would just have some pain for a few days. A few days actually turned into several weeks, so at the suggestion of my girlfriend, I went to see Dr. Anderson."
