An auto accident injury can be extremely unpredictable, especially within the first 24 to 48 hours after the accident. In most cases, you may not even realize you have been hurt. Minor accidents that are not considered serious in terms of damage to the vehicle can still leave you injured and in need of treatment. Muscle stiffness, soreness, neck and head injuries, and even broken bones are common in auto accidents, although you may not recognize all of these injuries immediately after the accident.
What to Do after a Car Accident
If you have been involved in a car accident, even a minor fender bender, you need to seek medical attention immediately. Schedule an appointment with our chiropractor even after minor accidents. A thorough evaluation from our chiropractor will be able to determine if any injuries are present in your body. He will be able to detect any abnormalities that may be present that could eventually turn into something more serious.
Common Complaints and Auto Accident Injuries
One of the most common of all auto accident injuries is whiplash. It is the result of the head being forced forward, then backward as your vehicle is abruptly brought to a halt. In addition to whiplash, you may also experience bruised ribs, sore abdominal and chest muscles, and a wide variety of bumps and bruises. Concussions are also possible if your head strikes the window or another hard object within the vehicle.
Personalized Care Plans
To prevent the general pain and discomfort that is often felt within a few days of a car accident, chiropractic adjustments can be made that will bring the body back to its natural alignment. Not every patient will require the same level of care after an auto accident. Our personalized care plans are tailored to your needs.
