Auto Injury Q & A
Why see a chiropractor following an accident?
When it comes to musculoskeletal injuries, there is no healthcare provider better equipped than a chiropractor. Chiropractors are specifically trained to deal with the joints and muscles of the body and their associated injuries. At Live Well Chiropractic of WNY, we are trained to identify injuries that have occurred following a motor vehicle accident.
Can I wait to be checked out after an accident?
A great number of people wait to go to the chiropractor and don’t receive medical treatment following an accident. Usually, this happens because people don’t notice symptoms right away or they don’t seem serious. It’s common for people to think, "It can wait. It’s not that bad." Regrettably, this can increase the risk of more serious long-term symptoms and complications developing. Seeing the chiropractor immediately after the accident will not only improve the healing time, it can help with the auto accident and injury claim. The chiropractor can also evaluate the extent and type of injury present in order to create a personalized treatment program which can assist patients to sustain their overall health, function, and flexibility.
What are common symptoms after an auto accident?
There are a wide variety of possible symptoms that someone may experience following a motor vehicle accident, including:
- Neck pain / Whiplash
- Back pain
- Shoulder pain
- Knee pain
- Poor sleep
- Ringing in the ears
If these symptoms are left untreated, they can lead to a number of chronic conditions down the road. Damaged joints and tissues can begin to degenerate in as little as two weeks, and that damage can become irreversible. If you are experiencing any symptoms at all, it is vitally important that you are immediately evaluated by a qualified chiropractor.
