In the United States, car accidents are the leading cause of injuries. Although these injuries are circumstantial to the nature of the accident, it is still important to seek care from one of our chiropractors immediately after to ensure that your spine is receiving proper treatment.
Some injuries from a car accident are noticed immediately, however it is more common to have subtle injuries that do not present themselves for several days after the accident occurs. During an accident, a victim’s body will release hormones called endorphins that give an immediate pain relief reaction. Because of this, these subtle injuries are often masked and easily ignored.
After an accident, even if you do not feel any pain, it is still important to get appropriate medical care.
Although some accidents are classified as minor fender benders, injuries can still be obtained and have potential long-lasting effects on your spine. If treatment is not sought out, you could be dealing with back and neck pain for the remainder of your life.
Getting your spine checked after a car accident can allow you to have a better understanding of any injuries that may be underlying and develop a treatment plan. Chiropractic care after an accident is essential to maintaining a healthy spine regardless of trauma sustained.
