Did you know women are more likely than men to suffer serious injuries in a car crash? Women are as much as 73% more likely than men to be seriously injured after adjusting for speed and other factors. Why is this the case? What can be done about it? Read on to learn more!

If you have been injured in a car accident, make an appointment with the Accident Recovery Team at County Line Chiropractic Medical & Rehab Centers to start on your healing journey.

Why Do Women Have a Higher Injury Risk in Car Accidents?

Women Higher Injury Risk in Car Accidents

New research from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) shows that most of the increased risk is due to the circumstances of women’s crashes and the types of vehicles they tend to drive rather than physical differences.

Data from the federal Fatality Analysis Reporting System showed that men are more likely to be driving the striking vehicle in two-vehicle front-to-rear and front-to-side crashes. Since the driver of the striking vehicle is at a lower risk of serious injuries than people in the stricken vehicle, that could account for some of the reasons women are 37-73% more likely than men to be seriously injured in auto accidents.

Additionally, 70% of women crashed in cars compared with 60% of men, while more than 20% of men crashed in pickups compared to less than 5% of women. Larger vehicles such as trucks, SUVs, and minivans offer more protection in a crash compared to cars.

Injured in a Car Accident? Chiropractic Care May Help

Chiropractic Care After An Accident


Are you a woman who has been injured in an auto accident? Chiropractic care may be able to help you find pain relief. The car accident chiropractors at County Line Chiro use a physical exam, imaging like X-rays or MRIs, and the description of your symptoms and car accident to identify the cause of your pain.

Then, the Accident Recovery Team puts together a customized care plan to tackle the root of your pain with a holistic, drug-free approach. Some of the therapies County Line Chiropractic offers that may be part of your care plan include:

  • Chiropractic adjustment (such as spinal manipulation) puts your spine back into alignment to restore joint function, relieve nerve interference, and reduce inflammation.
  • Massage therapy works very well in conjunction with chiropractic adjustments, making them more effective and prolonging their effects.
  • Physical therapy helps you adapt to changes in your body, improve your range of motion, and decrease your chance of prolonged pain or re-injury.
  • Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to increase blood flow and decrease swelling around injuries.
  • Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) uses light electrical pulses to reduce muscle spasms, reduce inflammation, and relieve pain.
