Seat Belt Auto Accident Injury
There are lots of car accidents that occur each year. Unfortunately, many of these car accidents can lead to an auto accident injury that can cause acute or chronic pain. Some of these auto accident injuries can also take weeks if not months or years to recover from. One of the most common injuries during a auto accident is a seatbelt injury.
Get the help of a Chiropractor who can help treat your seatbelt auto accident injury. At Dirks Chiropractic, we offer Chiropractic care with Dr. David Dirks, our licensed Chiropractor. Greenville and Pitt county residents can enjoy relief from pain associated with seat belt and other car accident injuries.
What Is a Seatbelt Auto Accident Injury?
Wearing a seatbelt can be the difference between life and death if you are involved in a car accident. However, wearing a seatbelt can also increase the risk of seatbelt injuries. Unfortunately, there is no way practical way to fully prevent seatbelt auto accident injuries since you should be wearing a seatbelt every single time you get on the road. Seatbelt injuries can occur due to the high impact and sudden and stopping force of a car accident.
Seatbelt injuries can be incredibly painful, and they can cause injuries that can take months to recover from or longer without the help of our Chiropractor. Some injuries that can result from wearing a seatbelt during a car accident may include:
- Shoulder pain and shoulder soft tissue injuries
- Headaches that result from the sudden jerking motion during an accident
- Chest and sternum injuries
- Rib cage injuries
- Shoulder dislocation
- Whiplash, which is caused by suddenly stopping and being held back during a car accident
How Chiropractic Care Can Help with Treatment
Chiropractic care provides 100% natural and effective treatment for pain associated with seatbelt injuries. In addition, Chiropractic care can also help alleviate symptoms of pain and help restore mobility and heal injured muscles.

They can then provide various Chiropractic treatments to help you heal. These may include physiotherapy techniques to reduce muscle inflammation and spasm, muscle stretches and exercises to encourage blood flow and improve mobility, and spinal adjustments / manipulation for a misaligned spine resulting from a car accident.
