A motor vehicle accident can be an incredibly traumatizing experience of life that can cause you severe to mild injuries. Chiropractic care for motor vehicle accident injuries is one way to speed up recovery time.
It might not be bothering you as these injuries seem mild and simple on your body. But you might have some invisible injuries that could appear days later.
However, like any traumatic event of life, an auto vehicle accident can spike your adrenaline levels, which prepares your body for taking action in high-tense situations. When the threat is gone, it may leave you with a few minor scratches, bruises, soreness, and bumps on your body which may not seem you a serious matter of medical concern and you leave them to heal naturally. But unfortunately, these threats can develop into serious health issues later after a few days or months which can be life-threatening. Fortunately, chiropractic care for car accident injury is offered at our Well Being Chiropractic P.C., West Hampstead, Nassau County, NY, by our core team of chiropractic doctors. They are trained and specialized to provide a drug-free as well as a non-invasive treatment for both short and long-term pain relief.
With over 3 million accident cases reported each year, in the US, whiplash, neck pain, slip disc, joint pains, lower back pain, headaches are the most common auto accident injuries in the country. Specifically, whiplash is one of the most common injuries you can experience in an accident. Due to the high impact of force during the accident your body parts like neck, muscles, and ligament will be stretched and twisted in all directions of motion which will be beyond their normal range.
Whiplash is the most common truck and car accident injury worldwide. And, if left untreated can cause symptoms, such as – migraine, memory loss, and/or even disability.
While it may seem passive, but whiplash can take a time to show up serious health issues such as chronic pain in the neck, memory loss, and disability when not taken seriously. Although most truck accident injuries are the result of frontal or rear-end collision, whiplash can be sustained from an impact in any direction. Other vulnerabilities for whiplash are included horseback riding, contact sports, and physical abuse.
After an auto accident, whiplash may take hours or days to show up its symptoms. Some of the common symptoms are included:
Disc Slip or Herniated Disc is Another Common Truck accident injury:
After the accident, if you feel pain while sitting, standing, and walking around, or you have got a twisted back then you should take it on a serious note. If the herniated disc left untreated, it can lead to spinal degeneration and even inhibit your normal range of motion.
