Auto Injury Suffering from an injury after a car accident? Find out your chiropractic treatment options in Richmond.

Getting in a car accident is a scary and traumatic experience for everyone involved, and recovering becomes even more difficult if you were injured in the crash. Whiplash and back problems are just some of the issues you might be facing after your car accident. Luckily, your Richmond chiropractor Dr. Scott Shaw is here to help.


Seeing a chiropractor after a car accident is a wise decision. Even if your symptoms appear a few days after your accident, it’s a good idea to see your Richmond chiropractor. We are able to treat a variety of soft-tissue, neck and back injuries to restore range-of-motion and flexibility while also reducing pain and stiffness.

During your first visit, we will discuss your medical history, your accident and the symptoms you are experiencing. We will also perform a thorough examination. Any advice we give you to help treat your symptoms and care for your condition should be followed if you want to see the most significant improvement.


Even in low-impact accidents, injuries can still occur. The most common type of car accident-related injury is whiplash. Some studies have even found that whiplash and minor back problems have occurred at speeds of only 2.5 miles per hour!

Even if a car is designed to withstand damage at higher speeds, our bodies are not. While some patients might find relief from minor symptoms by taking over-the-counter pain medications like Advil, not everyone will find the relief they need.

Whether you are experiencing back problems or whiplash after your accident in Richmond, we offer a variety of manipulation techniques. With the proper pressure applied to the affected joints, we can reduce pain, swelling and tension in those areas. Through spinal  manipulation  we can also improve the function and movement of these joints. We would be happy to discuss which chiropractic techniques would work best for your condition.

If you’ve been injured in a car accident then it’s time to seek care from your Richmond chiropractor right away. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Scott Shaw of Shaw Chiropractic Center today!
