The aftermath of an automobile accident can be chaotic and can happen in an instant. It is normal to be confused and scared, even if it was just a small fender bender.
Having to follow up with insurance companies, get the car repaired, and communicating with the other driver all will come before you start to think about your own health and any injuries you may have sustained, especially if these are subtle in nature.
It is common to suffer from a neck or back injury post-accident. Inflammation of the spinal area can cause numerous problems that can be long-lasting if not addressed promptly. This is because blood and nutrients are unable to make it to the affected tissues properly and healing is inhibited.
Getting treated by one of our chiropractors after an accident can help restore your full range of motion and allow your body to begin to heal itself with its natural anti-inflammatory agents as well as encourage appropriate spinal movement. This allows your body to heal much faster.
Delaying Treatment Will Likely Cause More Health Complications
Even if you feel that you only have a minimal injury and mild discomfort, putting off treatment can result in long-term pain and debilitation. Whiplash is a common occurrence that can become a chronic problem if not treated quickly following an automobile accident.
This can have an effect not only on the physical body but emotionally as well from dealing with recurrent pain and discomfort. Our chiropractors will quickly diagnose and begin treatment early to avoid a larger problem that can have lasting negative effects on your body and lifestyle.
Chiropractic Treatment Is Your Best Option
Many people when injured in a car accident turn to surgical intervention first to feel better. This is not always the best option. Seeking out one of our chiropractors early on can help you avoid the danger and cost of potentially unnecessary surgery and reduce your risk of dealing with chronic pain.
