Car accidents are traumatic experiences and it’s common for a patient to put their pain secondary to the other hassles of car accidents.
Before you return to work or any other major decisions, speak to your chiropractor. There could be underlying problems that seem minor on the surface but require immediate medical attention.
Many patients make the mistake of not seeking medical attention soon after a car accident injury. On the scene of the crash, they are occupied with assessing vehicle damage and exchanging insurance information to think about the pain. However, the next morning when the adrenaline subsides, you may begin to discover new aches and pains. Over the coming weeks, you may even notice additional symptoms develop as the injury progresses
While neck and back soreness may seem minor at first, it may cause inflammation and diminished function in the spine and surrounding ligaments, which could lead to long-term problems, if left untreated. If you’re experiencing any pain it’s imperative to seek medical attention as soon as possible.
