You’ve been in a car accident. You went to the emergency room where they checked your vital signs, made sure you didn’t have any life-threatening conditions, and gave you a prescription for pain relief. The problem is, though your injuries may not be life-threatening, they may be life-changing if you don’t get the proper care. Hospital emergency rooms do not look for underlying injuries that can result in future—and perhaps a lifetime of—pain. You need to be examined by a doctor who focuses on providing the proper diagnosis and treatment for car accident injuries. You need to be examined by one of our doctors at Accident and Injury Chiropractic where all we do is treat car accident injuries.
Or maybe you were in a crash in which your car only sustained minor damage, so you didn’t think the accident was serious enough for you to get checked out yourself. Now you’re hurting, and you don’t know where to turn. The amount of damage to your car has no bearing on the seriousness of your injuries. Whiplash can occur at speeds as low as five-miles-per-hour and lead to chronic issues including headaches and arthritis. You may feel pain-free after a car accident because shock and adrenaline can mask pain. Any musculoskeletal damage you may have incurred could take days, weeks, or even months to present, but remember, injuries are there from the beginning. Immediate treatment will have you on the mend faster and help you head future pain and possible chronic issues off at the pass.
So, always see a chiropractor immediately after a wreck. They are trained to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal issues. At Accident and Injury Chiropractic, we have the latest digital imaging technology including digital x-ray and MRI to get a clear understanding of your injuries. And unlike doctors of other specialties who may only be able to offer pain killers or surgery to mediate your issues, chiropractors offer you a variety of pain and injury treatment options to get you feeling great again. In addition, it is imperative that you get your injuries documented ASAP not only to receive the best treatment strategy but in case you must handle legal issues resulting from the wreck.
