If you've been involved in a car accident, it is best to be treated immediately. By delaying treatment, you can actually do more damage. This increases the risk of developing chronic symptoms. Waiting to seek treatment can also complicate any insurance or legal claims related to the car accident.
To improve your opportunity for a full recovery, see a chiropractor as quickly as possible following an auto collision. Dr. Harris Lee specializes in car accident injuries. He has extensive experience in diagnosing and treating auto injuries, along with documenting evidence for your auto injury claim.

Neck Pain and Whiplash
A stiff, sore neck is a common symptom following a car accident. Up to 90% of auto injury patients report neck pain. During a crash, your body moves backwards into the seat. The head position remains forward, stretching and tearing neck ligaments and tendons. Chiropractic care can prevent scar tissue buildup and improve range of motion in the neck following whiplash and neck pain caused by automataic accidents. Dr. Lee's team can help treat your neck injury, alleviating pain and preventing chronic symptoms.
Back Pain after an Auto Injury
Back pain is another common auto injury, especially during rear-end crashes, which compress the lumbar spine. This causes injury to the ligaments and nerves, resulting in inflammation, tissue damage, and pain. Dr. Lee uses appropriate physical therapy modalities, spinal traction therapy and other chiropractic techniques to treat this damage, easing back pain and preventing chronic symptoms.
