If you have recently been in a car accident, you may be asking yourself, “now what?” Navigating insurance can be frustrating, but more importantly, you should be focused on getting your life back to normal - but how?
After a personal injury accident, your first priority should be seeking quality medical care. Here we will address why you should promptly seek chiropractic care to treat injuries from an auto accident.
Hours, days, even weeks after an accident – symptoms can present themselves at any time, or not even present at all. Injuries such as whiplash are occasionally slow to present, but the pain, dizziness, and headaches are important symptoms to note – and to treat.
A complete evaluation allows us to detect injuries early on and prevent long-term health consequences. Furthermore, if you eventually need to file a bodily insurance claim, prompt treatment is important in ensuring coverage. After an accident, it is important to be seen by a health professional as soon as possible.
Type of Injury
Chiropractic care is especially valuable in treating soft-tissue injuries, many of which occur in the neck and back. Neck injuries such as whiplash and neck strain, or back injuries such as sprains or strains, are all common after an accident.
Chiropractic care can help cure back pain and neck pain after an accident by reducing inflammation and scar tissue, thus reducing long-term pain.
Path to Recovery
Our goal for treating an injured patient is to restore him or her to live their life as usual. Pain from an injury can prevent you from doing what you love. Medication-based pain management simply masks your symptoms, while chiropractic care is meant to treat the underlying problem.
With chiropractic care, you can hope to restore mobility, flexibility, and strength to the damaged tissue, so you can get back to doing the things you love.
Injuries after a car accident can be frustrating, but don’t have to sideline you permanently.
