One moment everything may seem fine, when suddenly you’re involved in a serious collision. Most people have one thing on their mind after a car accident--their car! Just remember that it's only metal and your health is much more important, so having your injuries checked out should come first. A visit to a chiropractor should always follow an auto injury, as chiropractors are specialists in damage to soft and hard tissue.
How Can a Chiropractor Help Me After My Auto Accident?
Chiropractors are able to treat painful neck and back injuries associated with auto accidents. Many times, individuals who have been injured in a car accident experience such intense muscle pain and stiffness that they simply cannot function normally. When left untreated, this discomfort can become a serious issue.
After an auto accident, some individuals experience indicators of whiplash injury right away, such as blurred vision, headaches, shoulder pain, dizziness, reduced range of motion and arm pain. Whiplash can also result in significant neck or back injuries, muscle injuries, ligament problems, and disc damage, while other individuals may be injured and feel nothing at all.
Treating pain or whiplash should never be secondary to bringing your car to the mechanic or working with your insurance company. If you’ve had an auto accident recently, your first priority should be taking the initiative to contact Dr. Rodney Crews at (318) 220-7688. Call today!
