At Hinze Chiropractic Center, our NE chiropractor (Dr. Randy Hinze) provides the highest standard of auto accident injury treatment to all patients. If you've recently been injured in a car accident and are currently suffering from back pain, neck pain, or other spinal injury symptoms as a result, we strongly encourage you to schedule an appointment with our skilled and experienced team.
We have treated a wide range of auto accident injuries here in our office, with whiplash being the most common that we see. Specifically, whiplash is an injury that tends to occur at the time of vehicle impact. When you wear a seat belt and are involved in an accident, your upper spine can be thrust forward into the seat belt while your lower back remains mostly stationary. This, in turn, can result in injuries to the mid and upper back, such as torn ligaments and tendons as well as damaged muscle surrounding the spine. Over time, you may develop symptoms like back or neck stiffness, pain, and even tingling or numbness.
Furthermore, when you are involved in an auto accident, it is not uncommon for the impact to cause your spine to be thrown out of alignment. When this happens, pressure from the misalignment can be placed on nerve endings, including the sciatic nerve in the lower back—causing a great deal of pain and discomfort. In some cases, the fluid-filled discs between your vertebrae may even become forced out of place or compressed, resulting in herniated and bulging discs.
Fortunately, if you're suffering from car accident injuries with symptoms such as back and neck pain, stiffness, and tingling or numbness, chiropractic treatment may be able to help. It is typically a good idea to seek chiropractic treatment as opposed to invasive surgical procedures or other risky treatment options because chiropractic care is natural, non-invasive, and drug-free. Therefore, you can find the relief you need without the potential risks and side effects that come along with other procedures.
At Hinze Chiropractic Center, we offer a wide range of treatment and therapy options to help you find relief from your symptoms. Specifically, our treatments focus on correcting misalignment of the spine and promoting improved blood and oxygen circulation throughout the body; this, in turn, can speed up the body's natural healing processes. This can all be done with treatments such as chiropractic spinal adjustments. Furthermore, we utilize corrective exercises to gradually restore your range of motion and relieve tension/stiffness in the spine.

With years of experience treating auto injuries in Columbus, the team at Hinze Chiropractic Center understands that prescription medications can only provide temporary relief from your pain and other symptoms after a car accident. With chiropractic treatment, we are able to target the root cause of your pain. With gentle, yet targeted spinal manipulations and adjustments, we are able to help you manage your pain naturally and heal more quickly.
Many auto accident injuries do not present themselves for several days or even weeks after the initial impact. This is why it is always a good idea not to refuse medical attention after an accident. If you notice your condition is worsening a few days later, you should act quickly to schedule an appointment.
As a full-service chiropractic care provider, we utilize a wide variety of treatment methods to better meet the needs of our patients following an auto accident. If you are experiencing lower back pain, neck pain or whiplash following an accident, we may use any combination of safe and proven treatment methods, including:
Auto accident injuries can range from minor cuts and bruises to more severe conditions including whiplash, sciatica, lower back pain, neck pain and more. During your initial visit with our chiropractor in Columbus, we'll ask about your health history, where you are experiencing pain and any treatment methods you’ve previously tried. Next, Dr. Hinze will complete a comprehensive chiropractic exam. Additional testing, including x-rays, may also be needed to make a proper diagnosis. From there, a chiropractic treatment plan will be designed to best fit your lifestyle needs.
While some patients see results after just one treatment session, each patient is different and so is each recommended treatment plan. During treatment, we will check your progress periodically and make adjustments as needed.
If you have Personal Injury Protection coverage (PIP), you may be entitled to a reimbursement of your medical expenses up to a certain dollar amount. We also accept most major insurance providers and are happy to discuss different payment options.
