Learn how to get out of pain and what steps to take after being in a car accident
You can never predict when a car accident will happen, but you can prepare for one. For instance, you can invest in car safety features or buy auto insurance. But if there’s one thing you should plan for, it’s what you’ll do after an accident. Be it a high-speed collision or a fender bender, a car accident can have a massive impact on your body. An auto accident chiropractor in Orem or Lehi can help relieve pain resulting from car crashes.
Why Chiropractic Care for Car Accidents?
The neck and back are some of the most vulnerable parts of the body during a car accident. Even a low-speed collision can have enough force to cause pain and injury on such body parts.
Sometimes you can recover from a car accident injury with rest and medication. But if your neck or back pain persists, the reason may be a spinal misalignment. That needs chiropractic care.
Here are some of the injuries that Orem and Lehi’s trusted car accident chiropractor specializes in:
• Whiplash — This injury is due to a sudden extension of the neck during an abrupt acceleration-deceleration motion, which is often caused by rear-end collisions. It is characterized by various symptoms, such as mild to severe pain, stiffness of the neck, migraines and dizziness.
• Spine and back injury — The impact of a collision can cause the vertebrae or discs to become displaced, causing immense pain in the back. Spine and back injuries include symptoms such as numbness or pain in the back, neck and shoulders, as well as in the hips, legs or feet.
Often, injury due to spinal misalignment has delayed symptoms. So if you’ve recently been involved in a car accident and believe you’ve come out unscathed, stay alert for symptoms of whiplash and back injury. For fast recovery, it is best to seek chiropractic care after a car accident. This way, our chiropractor can immediately assess you, create the necessary treatment plan and prevent further injuries from occurring.
