Car Accident Q & A
When should I see a chiropractor after a car accident?
It’s important to see a chiropractor if you’ve been in an accident, even if you aren’t sure whether you were injured. An initial evaluation can identify problems early – before you begin to experience symptoms – and ensure you receive the right treatment immediately.
Although treatment is recommended right away, it’s never too late to seek care from a chiropractor. Car accident victims are at risk of chronic pain, so if you experience pain weeks or months after your accident, it’s time to schedule an appointment with New York Spine and Pain.
What are the signs and symptoms of whiplash?

- Blurry vision
- Muscle stiffness

- Neck, back, and shoulder pain
- Tingling, numbness in your shoulders and upper arms
