Auto Injury

Car accident It Does Not Take Much to Displace Spinal Vertebrae

Dr. N. Scott Hawkins believes if you were the victim of an auto accident injury, chances are high that you might need a chiropractic adjustment to your spine.

It does not take too much of a jar from an auto accident to displace vertebrae in the spine. Even a minor hit to your bumper can cause your body to twist and turn suddenly and abnormally. This shaking causes displaced vertebrae in the neck and spine.

In addition, car accidents tend to throw the body forward, thus jerking the neck forward and back. However, you may only be aware of a displaced vertebra once you visit your chiropractic doctor for a spinal adjustment. 

Spinal Adjustments after a Car Accident

Our chiropractic doctor at TexCare Injury and Back Pain say that an auto accident injury can cause joints and vertebrae to become displaced. You may see other warning signs, such as an increase in headaches, muscle spasms, dizziness, insomnia, sprains, strains, and pain in the following locations:

  • Neck
  • Shoulders
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Hips

When this happens, you need to see your chiropractor immediately. Displaced vertebrae can show up in various ways and cause referred pain. Meaning pain can show up in other places in the body, but the underlying focus could be the spine. We want to help you get your spine back into its proper position.

Our doctor verifies your body's injuries with x-rays before assigning the proper treatment plan to help you get on the road to a complete healing and pain-free life.
