Why You Should See Your Chiropractor Immediately After an Accident

Following a car accident, you should be evaluated if you feel any level of pain and discomfort. It's a good idea to get checked out even if you feel fine. Your chiropractor will be in the best position to determine whether you sustained any serious injuries in the accident. You'll be given advice on monitoring symptoms of potential injuries, including any red flags to watch out for.


Making Claims

If you end up making any sort of injury claim after the accident, it's crucial to be able to document the fact that you sought medical treatment within a reasonable amount of time. If you wait too long, the insurance adjuster may argue that your symptoms were not related to the accident.


Evaluation

Any medications will simply mask the problem to provide temporary relief. Research shows that people who don't receive proper care after an accident have a significant increase in degeneration and arthritic change within 4-7 years. It is crucial that you get evaluated by a professional to thoroughly examine your spine for post-trauma injuries.
X-rays may be taken to check for anything not observable during a physical exam. If activity and movement are limited, optimal health is prevented and this could impair function down the road. At Smith Chiropractic, we have 30+ years experience treating spinal trauma and whiplash. Make an appointment today for a complimentary consultation with no obligation.
