Been in an Accident?
Being in a car accident is a traumatic experience. It can shake you up, wreck your car and leave you damaged and bruised. In addition to major injuries, you can suffer from a whole host of issues, including whiplash, stiffness, headaches, hip pain, knee pain, blurred vision, dizziness, reduced range of motion and fatigue.
These symptoms don’t always show up immediately and because of that, many people leave the scene of an accident and don’t even realize they are hurt. Or they take a trip to the ER where, once cleared of any life-threatening injuries, they’re sent home with pain medications, ignoring the underlying soft tissue damage that can often lead to future pain.
That’s why it is so important to consult a chiropractor who specializes in the treatment and diagnosis of auto accident injuries.
Did You Know?
Aside from head injuries, spinal injuries are the most common injury reported in traffic collisions. In car crashes involving speed over 45 mph, trauma or injury to the spine is almost guaranteed.
