Getting into an auto accident usually results in discomfort and pain from injuries and Dr. Daniel P. Secrest, DC is here to guide you back to optimal health. While the severity of the injuries can depend on several factors, you will want to treat the pain or discomfort shortly after an accident, to address the underlying complications or concerns associated with the accident. Here at Secrest Family Chirorpactic, we provide chiropractic care for pain relief at our practice in Scottsdale to address and alleviate the pain as your body heals.
Potential Injuries from an Auto Accident
Auto accident care in Scottsdale depends on the injuries from the accident. An auto accident causes several different types of injuries and may require medical attention in certain situations.
Common injuries associated with a car accident include:
Cuts and bruises
Muscle sprains and strains
Injuries to the bones, including broken or cracked bones
Headaches, which often relate to muscle injuries and whiplash
General back pain
Pain in different areas of the body, including the knees, feet or chest
The severity of injuries will usually depend on the speed of the vehicle and any other vehicle involved in the accident. Minor accidents may lead to certain injuries, including whiplash, due to the sudden reduction in forward motion. An accident at a high speed may result in more severe injuries.

We may also provide massage therapy treatments for muscle-related injuries to the back or neck.
Injuries to other areas of the body require treatment based on the underlying concerns resulting in pain. For example, knee pain may require massage or chiropractic adjustments to improve the function and alignment of the bones of your legs. We recommend treatments after evaluating the situation.
