Benefits of Auto Injury Treatment After a Car Accident

Written By Advanced Health, PA on October 12, 2017

In the moments after an auto accident, it’s natural to go through every body part to make sure they’re there. But, is accounting for your fingers and toes all it takes to ensure you’re okay?

In truth, the real damage from a car wreck can take weeks to manifest itself fully. You might walk away from the scene of the carnage feeling fine, but the long-term damage might already be present in your body. To avoid this risk, it’s imperative that you seek auto injury treatment directly after the accident. 

For those who live in Fridley, Blaine, Mounds View, or New Brighton Advanced Health PA can give your back the chiropractic care it needs after a wreck to get you back into your best shape quickly- WITHOUT lingering complications. 

The Impacts of an Auto Accident on Your Back 

Your car’s seat belt is designed to save your life during an accident, but it can come at a heavy price for your back. Whiplash can lead to long-term problems for the connective tissue in your back that can reveal itself in a wide variety of symptoms, including chronic upper back and shoulder pain, neck pain, lower back pain and inexplicable fatigue. In fact, research shows that almost half of cases of chronic neck and back pain today were caused by a car accident. To stop yourself from becoming a statistic, you need to seek out appropriate care from a chiropractor right away. 

The kind of impact that your accident will have is hard to predict, because dozens of factors dictate what the damage turns out to be, including your collision speed, direction, and previous health. Likewise, the body’s response to an accident is to go into shock, ensuring that you won’t feel the full effects of the wreck until much later. For this reason, it’s important to seek auto injury treatment as soon as possible after an accident, even if you don’t feel like anything is wrong.
