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! However, it’s important to remember that you and your injuries come first. A visit to a chiropractor should always follow an auto injury, as chiropractors are specialists in damage to soft and hard tissue.

After a auto accident, it is not unusual for injury related symptoms to be delayed. Often, symptoms do not appear for days, weeks or even months following an auto accident.
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 be a serious issue.
Some of the most common symptoms associated with auto accidents are whiplash, neck pain, headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, muscle stiffness, mid back pain, low back pain, spasms, extremity pain, numbness and tingling. Whiplash can also result in muscle injuries, ligament problems, and disc damage.
Prompt and proper care following an auto accident can be very important in recovering quickly.
The earlier your injuries are detected and treated, the faster your injuries will heal.
Without proper healing, injuries can result in years of ongoing problems and can lead to chronic life-long pain.
Using patient proven, noninvasive treatment procedures along with appropriate and timely recommendations is the key to success.
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 visit your chiropractor!
