Auto Accident Care in Fort Collins

Woman with sore neck from auto accidentWhether you’ve been in a low-speed fender bender or high-speed collision, your body undergoes significant trauma. Your head goes all the way forward and all the way back—it’s called an acceleration-deceleration problem. When that occurs, your body does what’s called splinting. It tightens itself down to prevent further damage.

Pain Doesn’t Present Immediately

Most people don’t have pain right after the accident; their body goes into fight or flight mode and they’re being protected.

Many people give their chiropractor a call as soon as they begin feeling pain. We don’t blame them. Dealing with a painful back, a neck that does not move, or a knee that hurts when you bend it can be very tough.

Some patients do not realize that the pain they are experiencing has been going on for a while and is now just surfacing. You may have been in a car accident years ago and your body is only now showing symptoms.

You also may have an old sports injury that has finally shown itself in other ways. No matter what the cause of your pain, we want to help you become pain-free.
