Importance of Seeing a Chiropractor after an Auto Accident
When you are involved in an auto accident, you may not be overly concerned about seeking medical treatment, especially if you are not feeling any pain. Just because you aren't hurting immediately after the accident doesn't mean you escaped without being injured. It just means that the rush of adrenaline released during the accident is masking your pain. The injuries are there, you just can't feel them yet. It is critical to avoid chronic injuries be seeking an evaluation from trained professionals.
Common Injuries Related to a Car Accident
Common injuries related to a car accident can include whiplash, bruised ribs and hips, internal injuries, concussions, and dislocated joints, as well as many others. Bumps and bruises are easy to see, but damage to the soft tissues, ligaments, and tendons may be more difficult to identify, only making themselves known through extreme pain and discomfort. Seeking attention immediately after an accident is the best way to keep these injuries under control.
How Our Chiropractor Can Help
Our chiropractor can help by immediately restoring any part of your musculoskeletal system that has been shifted or displaced back to its natural position. Restoring balance within the body as soon as possible after an accident is extremely important if you want your body to heal correctly. If balance is not restored and the body is allowed to heal improperly, long-term chronic pain can be expected as the body struggles to learn its new normal. Working with our chiropractor will get the healing process started the right way.
Don't Wait to Seek Treatment!
Seeking treatment immediately after an auto accident may prevent some of the more pain and discomfort. If you wait until you feel the pain to see your chiropractor, some degree of damage may have already be done that would slow down the hearing process. Immediate attention allows the body to start hearing right away. This means less discomfort and a reduced risk of chronic, long-term pain.
