Chiropractic care will help restore and maintain the health of the spine that has been through an auto accident trauma. Our trained staff of experts will listen to the details of the accident, the injuries sustained, and conduct a physical examination. After this, Dr. Dee can discuss and address any subluxations, or misalignments, found in the spine.

Chiropractors specialize in the care of bones, muscles, nerves, and connective tissue, making them the perfect place to go for treatment after a car accident. Correct spinal alignment will help each area of the body recover and heal from the trauma.

By receiving early care and treatment from Dr. Dee and the staff at Healing Hands Chiropractic, patients can achieve faster healing and recovery. Even if the car crash seemed minor, it’s still worth a visit to our offices. Even the slightest accident can cause subluxations. Chiropractic adjustments will help relieve pain, restore alignment to the spine, and help patients feel better, faster.

Spinal manipulation is a natural and effective way to treat auto accident injuries without the use of over the counter medications or prescription medications. These types of medicine are often accompanied by nasty and harmful side effects, and even run the risk of addiction. Furthermore, they do not treat the source of the symptoms, they simply cover up the symptoms themselves. The moment the medication wears off, the pain returns.

Treat your auto accident injuries at their source with chiropractic care from Healing Hands Chiropractic.

Benefits of Chiropractic Treatment

Chiropractic care has many benefits for those who have been in minor or major car accidents. The spine houses the nervous system. The nervous system controls every cell in the entire body! If the spine is misaligned, the nervous system cannot function as it should. Often, auto accidents cause spinal misalignments, also called subluxations.

When subluxations are present within the spine, the body is unable to function as it should and symptoms start to show up. These may appear in the form of whiplash, headaches, back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, decreased energy, poor focus or concentration, difficulty sleeping, and more.

Chiropractic offers a safe, natural, and effective way to treat these symptoms at their source. While over the counter and prescription medications are the default form of treatment in most medical fields, they simply do not address the source of the symptoms. These medications come with nasty side effects and only mask the symptoms rather than treat them. Chiropractic care gets to the root of the issue and treats the source so your pain can be a distant memory.

Benefits of chiropractic care include:

  • Improved nerve communication throughout the body
  • Relief from joint pain
  • Improved range of motion and coordination
  • Relief from back and neck pain
  • Improved posture
  • Increased energy
  • Better sleep
  • Improved physical function and performance
  • Stress relief
  • Relief from chronic injuries

    I am so fortunate that my husband introduced me to Dr. Dee and her "healing hands". I have been seeing her for almost a month, and my chronic back pain has improved dramatically. I look forward to our visits and would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to truly heal their bodies. . - Kristen Chase

    Not sure what my husband would have done without Dr. Dee. She has continually sought out new techniques to help him. I can say without a doubt, my husband would not be where he is without her guidance. - Audreanna Hoyt

    I came into the clinic with chronic back pain. As an athlete I was looking for anything to make me feel the slightest bit better. After a few months, Dr.Dee was not only able to make me feel significantly better but I no longer had that nagging pain while lifting! She's a life saver! - Victoria Hartline

    I heard about Dr. Dee though a friend and must say I'm glad I listened. I've been to a few chiropractors before and she is by far the most thorough of all. She treats the whole body, not just back issues. I've had pain in my toes that I had resigned myself to live with, but she even helped with that. I send all my friends to her now. - d.w

    Dr. Dee is awesome! I thought walking around with tightness in my neck, feeling like I was in constant need for a neck massage was just normal. Now I know it's not and it is SO nice to not feel like that any more! Thanks Dr. Dee. We are lucky to have you in Murfreesboro!! - Nan Norsby
