Reasons To See A Chiropractor Post Motor Vehicle Accident
Many people know to see a chiropractor if they have pain post motor vehicle accident. Did you know symptoms can take up to 30 days to manifest?? Did you also know that permanent scar tissue can form in as early as 7-10 days?? Before I was a chiropractor, I was in 5 motor vehicle accidents, a motorcycle accident, a jet-ski accident, and horseback riding accidents. I did not realize how serious these were until my fifth car accident revealed my X-rays with structural damage creating secondary conditions such as back pain, painful menses, digestive disorders, and infertility ( I now have two children).
If you are ever in a car accident, you should go to the urgent care or emergency room just to make sure you don’t have a brain bleed or any other life threatening medical issue that needs to be addressed. The next step is to: call us within seven days of accident. We will have you come in and decide together if you need an extensive evaluation. Our evaluation includes necessary neurological, orthopedic, chiropractic and radiological analysis. If someone is in extreme pain, we have been known to deliver emergency adjustments on the same day of examinations. Such cases are dependent on criterion. No red flags should be found during the exam: meaning there are no contraindications to adjust.
It is vital for you to get evaluated and initiate care as soon as possible in order to set in the healing processes with the fundamental support via chiropractic adjustments. The acute stage of an injury is relatively short and can be the most debilitating for you. However, the good news is that this is the stage that chiropractic will reduce the pain and discomfort the fastest. The critical stage is the chronic and several chronic/permanent damage created by structural abnormalities that takes the longest time and is vital to follow through with your recommended care. As long as you follow our recommendations, including our bio structural correction, you have a high chance of fully recovering from the motor vehicle accident injuries.
