Auto Accidents and Chiropractic Care

Did you know that whiplash and soft tissue auto accident injuries are treated most effectively by chiropractors? Did you know that some auto accident injuries are hidden and may not be noticed for months or years? An auto accident is one of the most stressful events that can occur in life.

Auto accidents are an inconvenience and a hassle and most times cause the victim to feel not like their normal self. Auto accidents may cause the obvious aches and pains, with symptoms of muscle stiffness and spasm, neck pain, headaches, difficulty sleeping, back pain, numbness and tingling, fatigue, difficulties concentrating, memory loss, and many other symptoms. Unfortunately, you also may be injured, and have no symptoms at all. Auto accidents at speeds as low as 15 mph, can cause post-traumatic osteoarthritis, whether or not you have pain at the time of your accident. Osteoarthritis can lead to degeneration of the discs in your spine, which can ruin your posture, and cause chronic stiffness in your neck and back.

According to Settlement, Chiropractic is the treatment of choice for whiplash and soft tissue injuries caused by an auto accident. Their members have told them that they felt better faster and were able to stay pain-free for longer with chiropractic care than with general medical care. Medical doctors are only able to treat the symptoms with pain medicine, whereas chiropractors are able to get to the source of the pain. In face, most doctors are not trained in the detection of these hidden injuries. Chiropractors are trained in the biomechanics of the human body, and treat these type of injuries everyday. Chiropractors are also able to evaluate you after an auto accident and determine if there is a need for referral to another health care provider.

No matter what, it is important that you get checked out immediately after an auto accident, because you may be injured even if you are not experiencing any pain. This then allows for you to have an open claim and receive the care that you need for any injuries you received in the auto accident. Once your case settles or closes, you will lose the right to have your insurance company pay for your treatment, and may suffer from the effects of the accident months or years later.
