Common Car Accident Questions:
What are common injuries following an auto accident?
Many times, auto accidents can leave you with neck and back pain, whiplash injuries, or soft tissue injuries. You can experience so much muscle pain and stiffness that it impedes your day-to-day functions. This discomfort, on top of other injuries, can be a serious issue.
How do you know if you are suffering from whiplash?
Patients typically assume that only high-speed accidents cause whiplash. However, all it takes is a 2-3 mph change in speed.
Some people experience the most common indicators of whiplash right away. These include:
- Blurred vision
- Shoulder pain
- Reduced flexibility
- Arm pain
Aside from those symptoms, whiplash sufferers might deal with minor back injuries, ligament problems, disc damage, and muscle injuries.
However, other patients don't deal with any noticeable problems after a car accident. They tend to think they're just "stiff" or "sore," but a severe injury could, in fact, be developing.
Why seek chiropractic care after an auto accident?
It’s common not to realize that your car accident injured you, only to later suffer discomfort or headaches much later. Being proactive about your health and receiving a chiropractic evaluation right away can benefit you later on.
Chiropractic care views you as a whole individual rather than just focusing on the body part giving you the most trouble. Serious health problems can develop if your injuries go unnoticed or untreated.
How do chiropractors address whiplash?
