One of the most common reasons to visit a chiropractic team is due to an injury as a result of a car accident. No matter whose fault the wreck was, you should always seek medical care after a collision, even if you believe your pain is too minor to receive attention.
Our Amarillo medical center is trained to manage pain and restore function to the body's soft tissues, bones, and joints, and our Board-certified chiropractic orthopedic specialist can be sure you are fit to return to activities of daily living without causing further damage. We want to get you properly functioning so your acute injuries don’t turn chronic.
The best news is that there is almost never any money required from a car wreck patient, regardless of who is at fault. There is almost always insurance to pay for care. We consider Personal Injury Protection on the patient’s car insurance, 3rd party insurance, which is the at-fault driver’s car insurance, and we also take payment via a patient’s attorney should the patient be represented.
Our team consists of healthcare professionals dedicated to getting you the support necessary to live pain-free and participate in the activities you love.
We work with all kinds of patients in every stage of recovery after an auto accident, including:
- Whiplash patients
- Rehabilitation patients
- Patients suffering from back or neck pain
- Post-surgery patients
- And more
We understand the stress that comes with an accident, and it’s not all physical. Trauma will affect each body differently, but we have the resources to ensure you get the treatment that best fits your needs and goals.
Our team of healthcare professionals utilizes several chiropractic and medical methods; we offer a superior experience and have extensive education, so you can feel confident in your healing process. In most cases, you will pay no out-of-pocket expenses for the auto-injury care you receive from our clinic; we work with insurance and lawyers to keep your costs at a minimum.

Just as each person is unique, each accident is too. You can’t create a healing plan without understanding the patient's specific needs and requirements, as well as the ins and outs of their collision.
We will determine the cause of your pain so we can treat the condition, not the symptoms. Our team knows you need your discomfort to end quickly; we make sure to do it right the first time.
Patients may experience different pain issues after an auto accident, including:
- Lower back pain or lumbar pain
- Neck pain

- And more
You should receive a whole-body assessment to ensure you get the correct treatment for your injury, as your pain can stem from a number of dysfunctions, including:
- Strained or sprained soft tissues or muscles
- Herniated discs or other disc injuries
- Nerve irritation
- Nerve impingement
- And more
Whether you need medical support after your accident, surgery due to your accident, or pain that appeared after your accident that has become chronic, we’re prepared to help. Understanding how the body needs to move and function is vital to getting you back in action.
Whiplash is a common occurrence when a vehicle is hit from behind. The forceful impact can cause a sudden and violent jerk of the head forward and back, causing damage to the soft tissues in the neck. When these tissues are stretched and strained, the injury is referred to as whiplash and can be painful and reduce motion.
Even minor rear-ended accidents can lead to the condition, so you should always receive medical insight after a collision of any kind.
While a rear-ended accident is the most common way to get whiplash, others include:
- A forceful blow to the head or chin
- A serious fall
- An aggressive pull on one or both arms
These scenarios often occur in sports-related activities and should not be overlooked.
When trauma such as this happens, the muscles, tendons, and ligaments in the neck can become damaged and lead to various symptoms, including:
- Dull to severe pain
- Neck stiffness and soreness
- Neck weakness
- Loss of range of motion or flexibility in the neck
- And more
After a traumatic event, adrenaline is often flowing, making it difficult to recognize pain and injury. You may not find yourself feeling the true effects for hours or even days after. We recommend visiting your local chiropractor as soon as possible after your accident to ensure you get any necessary treatment.
Using our experienced chiropractic care and medical services, we can provide a complete appraisal of your body, then administer services to get you healthy and pain-free.
