It is why seeing a chiropractor at Weig Chiropractic Center following an auto accident in the Charlotte area is so important. What are some common auto accident injuries that people experience? What is whiplash? How can a chiropractor help and why should you see Weig Chiropractic Center in Charlotte following injuries from an auto accident? Let's take a closer look.
Common Auto Accident Injuries
Many times patients will contact us for chiropractic care when they sustain a neck or back injury in an auto accident. The truth is, since the neuromuscular system in these areas is so complex, the sudden impact from an auto accident can cause far-reaching injuries.
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Upper and/or lower back pain
- Tingling or numbness in extremities
- Overall body stiffness or soreness
- Lack of energy
Symptoms of whiplash, the most common of auto accident injuries, can be particularly impactful.
Whiplash and its Symptoms
Whiplash is a common auto accident injury that chiropractic care from our Charlotte chiropractor can address. Whiplash is a straining of the neck, caused when the head suddenly moves back and forth or side to side on the neck. This is often the result of an auto accident. Symptoms of whiplash can often start with some stiffness in the neck or upper shoulders. This should not be ignored. Pain and soreness are a sign that something has been damaged. While people who experience severe neck pain or headaches following an auto accident may seek help immediately, many who just experience stiffness or soreness may “tough it out”. This can be dangerous. Untreated whiplash can get worse and result in a lifetime of chronic pain. If conditions are left undiagnosed as being accident-related, it may also result in forfeiture of insurance coverage or legal recourse as a result of injuries.
Other more severe whiplash symptoms include severe back pain, neck pain and immobility, tingling, headaches and even irritability and sleeping difficulties. Whether your symptoms are minor or severe, seek our Charlotte chiropractor at Weig Chiropractic Center promptly.
How Our Charlotte Chiropractor can Help

Chiropractic care at Weig Chiropractic Center in Charlotte seeks to realign this network, managing pain and restoring health and mobility. This is an all-natural treatment designed for long-term wellness. We don't recommend potentially harmful drugs or encourage invasive surgery. Our results have been impressive.
