Our Oregon City chiropractors work with several patients who have been involved in a vehicle collision, so we understand the various tolls these accidents take. Not only are our patients injured, some need surgeries, and often there’s a loss of expensive property. However, we also witness the mental, emotional, and financial effects caused by an auto accident.
We are determined to help you get your life back in order, your pain under control, and your body supporting you in its proper, intended form. Our natural techniques provide safe, non-invasive, painless solutions that are evidence-based and contribute to overall well-being.
The team at Function Performance accepts most insurance, and our patients are usually covered 100% with no out-of-pocket expenses. We work directly with the insurance agencies so you can stay focused on your health and recovery. No referral is needed to see us, all we need is your claim number, and we’ll take it from there.
If you’ve been involved in a collision, we recommend coming to our clinic so we can work together to ensure your body’s safety. In many cases, a patient doesn’t realize damage has been done to their body until hours or even days after the accident took place.
Making an appointment with our team after your accident will allow you to start healing faster. Even if you think your injury isn’t substantial, book an appointment for your peace of mind.
The last thing you need is for this unfortunate experience to take more time, money, or comfort away from you.
Common symptoms experienced after a car collision include one or more of the following:
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Back pain and low back pain
- Loss of range of motion or mobility
- Sore or stiff muscles or joints, especially in the neck or shoulders
- Discomfort when moving and sedentary
- Numbness or tingling sensations
- Inability to sleep
These accident-related symptoms are often a result of a forceful impact and may be due to any of the following:
- Herniated disc(s)
- Muscles strains or sprains
- Lumbar sprains
- Spinal stenosis
Let our safe rehabilitation and chiropractic services gently get your body back where you want it. We’re safe, cost-effective, quick, and offer more than comfort, but confidence too.
Why Visit a Chiropractor After an Auto Accident
When the body is involved in any kind of unnatural, forceful movement, it’s put at risk and will usually sustain some level of injury. When a vehicle is the cause of the forceful action, the body doesn’t stand a chance against it. Even at 20 MPH, a hit from a car can cause the body a lot of damage.
No matter the severity of impact, discomfort, pain, or financial strain, we want to see you in our chiropractic clinic. You just went through a violent experience, and your adrenaline took over, which allowed you to move and may have allowed you to appear to be fine and fully functioning, but you may be in store for a delayed response to your injuries.
Come see us and get a complete physical. If chiropractic and rehab attention is necessary, we will go over all of your options with you. Then, we’ll put a healing plan in place that you’re comfortable with and that you can afford (if insurance is an issue).
We want to quickly get you back to doing the things you love to do, shortening your downtime and reinforcing the quality of life you want.

Treating Your Auto Accident Injury
Our team pulls from a variety of holistic treatments and services that work together for the quickest, most reliable, and secure recovery process. Our auto injury patients have various symptoms caused by various injuries, and we want each individual to be comfortable with the plan put in place. To do this, we will discuss in detail what solutions will work best for them and why.
Some of our services include:
Active Release Technique (ART)
Targeting injured muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves, we will minimize scar tissue and restore mobility and function. This gentle technique often subdues pain immediately.
Diversified Chiropractic Technique (DCT)
This technique is used to target specific joints using a swift, controlled, low-amplitude thrust. It restores range of motion, mobility, and comfort.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation (IASTM)
Using chiropractic tools designed to aid in helping restricted joints, the doctor will gently deliver a thrust to the injured vertebrae or joint, allowing for quick results and recovery.
Laser therapy is a procedure that serves to increase oxygen and blood flow throughout the body, helping with relaxation and healing. We use the class IV laser for our treatments, which is the most advanced level of laser, to ensure quick results.
Applying medical tape to the affected areas, we will minimize pain and inflammation and restore the proper function of the patient’s muscles and joints.
After an auto accident or an auto accident-related surgery, we will help get the body functioning as it is meant to through non-invasive rehabilitative exercises and stretches that support the healing and strengthening process.
Corrective exercises and stretches
We know that combining our in-office treatments with at-home corrective exercises and stretches creates a superior road to recovery for patients, enhancing the chiropractic solutions we offer.
Functional Movement Assessment
Assessing your seven full-body movement test results, we can accurately pinpoint movement irregularities that will benefit your treatment plan and help us determine the quickest and safest chiropractic and rehabilitation techniques to use.
The Benefits of Chiropractic Care After Your Auto Accident
After a vehicle collision, the goal is to improve your ability to move and function so you can continue your daily routine, enjoy physical activities, and have comfort during your social encounters with family and friends. Our chiropractic team wants to help in your recovery process.
Western medicine often relies on invasive surgery, addictive medications, and an approach that calls for a lot of rest and downtime, which means you have to stop doing the things you enjoy. We don’t do that. Our measures are safe and effective. We encourage your daily routine throughout your recovery with modifications that promote strength and health so you can safely continue performing the activities you love.
The sooner you start mobilizing and building your body back up, the better. Your quality of movement is essential, and we make sure you perform your tasks and activities properly. This is a modern approach that works.
Call us to help get your pain under control and your range of motion and mobility back. Our evidence-based techniques won’t let you down.

” Lifesavers! I’ve seen Function Performance for exercise related issues and after a car accident. They are so effective in massage, PT, chiropractic, and diagnostic, connecting issues I would have never considered to be related and driving results.” – Dana H. // Oregon City
“I love Function Performance!!! Everyone there is amazing!!! I truly can’t say enough good things! I have been seeing Dr. Ben and Tim for a few years. I have seen Dr. Kyle a few times as well. They have helped with past injuries, helped me through injuries due to a car accident, and help me cope with my all the side effects of repetitive motion from my job. Dr. Ben is the first chiropractor to suggest a maintenance plan to me, and I’m so happy with the results that I tell everyone I can about how amazing these people are. They make you feel welcome as soon as you walk in (Melissa is THE BEST!), and they are professional, personable ROCK STARS! Thank you!!!” – Emily S. // Oregon City, Oregon
“I was injured in a collision with a drunk driver and wasn’t even sure that this driver had coverage. When I was referred to Function Performance, they were more concerned with my healing and getting me back to normal than how and when they would be paid. I think that is an exceptionally outstanding quality in these days of “money first and me me me!”. Dr. Kyle, Dr. Ben, and Tim the massage therapist are amazing! They are very knowledgeable, easy to talk to, and each have a great sense of humor which I think is important during the healing process. The friendly Ladies upfront, also with great senses of humor respectively, always greeted me with a smile and were extremely helpful and accommodating in scheduling and helping me through the various necessary paperwork and all. The attention to detail is incredible, the Doctors were able to show me where the pain was without me even telling them. When I first came in I could barely move. And over the last three months they have worked with me and walked me through the healing process step by step. Through adjustments, massage, exercises, encouragement, and using state of the art equipment and products, this amazing team has brought me back to not just normal but better than I was before the collision. I was so impressed with Function Performance that I will continue to come in periodically for adjustments to insure I am in optimal condition. You just don’t find places in any business that treat you like a person and not just a number, the personal touch makes all the difference. I would highly recommend this team to anyone in need of such services………. They even sent me a birthday card, personalized and signed by the entire staff who know me by name!……….Who does that?!!! – Jack I.
