Seatbelt Injury

Have you ever been involved in a car accident but sustained no injuries? Sometimes symptoms of auto accident injuries may take a while before manifesting. For example, spinal injury symptoms usually take between 24 and 72 hours to show up.


Our team at Pike Chiropractic Therapy Center specializes in delivering quality chiropractic care for auto injuries in and around Huber Heights. We diagnose and treat all kinds of car accident injuries, including back and neck pains from whiplash, spinal complications, and even seatbelt injuries.

Understanding Seat Belt Injuries

Most seatbelt injuries usually go unnoticed but can lead to health complications if left untreated. Here are some signs that you should look out for post-accident:

  • Pain around the chest and back
  • Bruises on the shoulder and chest – These occur due to the impact of these body parts on the seatbelt, especially during relatively bad accidents.
  • Strains or sprains, especially on the upper part of the body – Resulting from a sudden forward thrust into the seatbelt with the lower spine remaining stable., such as when you make sudden stops.
  • Whiplash – It can trigger several side effects like insomnia and migraines if untreated.

In extreme cases, seatbelt injuries may even result in a broken collar or rib bone. However, such incidents are sporadic.

How We Treat Seatbelt Injuries at Pike Chiropractic Therapy Center

We have various chiropractic treatment options available depending on the extent of the auto injuries and the affected body parts. Like in a typical health procedure, we first examine you to understand the severity of your injury and the type of care needed for relief.

For more severe cases such as spinal misalignment, we usually recommend a series of treatments. We use spinal decompression to relieve pressure from the disks between the vertebrae. Once your spine has aligned properly, we recommend other actions to ensure that you stay fit post-treatment.
