Should you see a chiropractor after an auto accident?
There’s never an opportune time to have an automobile accident or collision. The impact of a collision can be felt all over your body and for the rest of your life.
That’s why it’s important to take the right steps when you experience a fender bender.
How can a chiropractor help after an accident?
Chiropractic care is crucial for the immediate and long term health impacts following a collision. Chiropractic care can help with many injuries following a car crash.
It can be instrumental in aiding with the following:
- Low back pain
- Sprains or strains from shoulder to hand and hip to toe
Benefits of chiropractic care after an accident
It’s important to seek out care immediately following a collision or accident. This can promote efficient healing and rehabilitation.
Delaying care can lead to long-term health problems like:
- Chronic pain
- Excessive scar tissue formation
- A decrease in range of motion and mobility
How bad of an accident requires a visit to a chiropractor?
It doesn’t take a high-speed collision to cause serious damage to your body. Whiplash and concussions can occur at speeds as low as five miles per hour. Pain levels and tissue damage don’t always correlate to the amount of vehicle damage.
No matter how bad the accident is, you should always monitor and track your symptoms. Pain severity and locations can change while the body begins the healing process.
