The specialists at Texas Spine Clinic are specially trained to evaluate and treat these injuries including:
- Whiplash and neck pain
- Herniated discs
- Sprains and strains
- Back pain
- Joint pain

What To Do If You Were Involved In A Car Accident
Here’s the short answer: Seek care immediately!
Car accidents can cause a variety of injuries — including soft tissue damage to the muscles, ligaments, and tendons — that can last for months following the accident. They can become worse over time if left untreated. Whatever condition or pain you may be feeling, we recommend following these 5 steps to achieve faster pain relief and avoid long-term pain.
1. Take Notes
Write down the pain(s) you experience immediately following a car crash. If you’re involved in a serious collision, your body can go into shock, and that high-alert mode can temporarily reduce the effects of any personal injuries. By writing down what you feel, you can accurately tell a healthcare professional all of your symptoms so they can provide you with the correct treatment(s).
2. Promptly Seek Injury Care
When you see a doctor, report everything, including the notes taken from your initial injury and any new pain — even small pains. If your car gets dented in a few small areas, you still want them fixed. The same logic should apply to your body, so explaining all of your painful areas will help with treatment. Even minor injuries can turn into long-term aches and pains.
Oftentimes, you’ll experience soreness after a crash due to muscle strain. One way to help with the recovery is through light stretching exercises, yoga and other low-impact stretching techniques. Our providers can also guide you with the proper exercises to ensure healing and reduce the chances of chronic pain.
4. Avoid Vigorous Exercise
Good blood flow is key to recovery, but you should avoid high-impact exercises like running, jumping, or playing sports until you have been evaluated by a qualified physician or chiropractor that understands car accident injuries. Concussions, whiplash, spinal and joint injuries can worsen significantly with heavy exercise.
5. Don’t Skip Treatment
Once you are on the road to recovery, each therapy session or pain management procedure builds on the previous treatment. Missing these treatments can delay how quickly your pain and mobility will improve.
