02 Jun 5 Reasons to See a Chiropractor After an Accident
If you have recently been in a car accident, it is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Whether it is a small fender bender or a larger, more serious wreck, it’s important to be seen by a professional. The staff at Spinal Rehab of North County have (a combined) 33 years experience and will help your recover quickly and completely.
Here are five reasons why you should visit a chiropractor after a automobile accident:
1. Injuries Are Not Always Obvious
Injuries that are caused by car wrecks are not always obvious and may not show themselves for a bit. When your body experiences something traumatizing, like an auto accident, it can go into survival mode and will release endorphins which can cover the pain.
Car wrecks can cause injury to joints, muscles, and ligaments which can lead to a great amount of pain, a lessened range of motion, and many other issues that can present themselves later on. For example, whiplash symptoms can sometimes take 24 or more hours to appear. Visiting Spinal Rehab of North County immediately after an accident is wise, because the sooner you are seen, the faster you can be diagnosed and properly treated for any injuries
2. Prevent Long Term Pain
Untreated injuries due to an automobile accident can lead to long term pain and suffering. Injuries that occur because of car wrecks can present symptoms days, months, or even years down the road if not immediately and properly treated. Visiting Spinal Rehab of North County right away will give you the best chance at healing quickly and recovering entirely. You should not wait to seek help from an experienced chiropractor.
3. Holistic Approach to Treatment
Automobile accidents can cause headaches, neck and back pain, whiplash, joint and muscle soreness, and many more problems. These injuries can be treated without the use of pain medications. Dr. Templeton can treat any and all of these injuries effectively by using adjustments, spinal corrections, and current techniques without the use of prescription drugs. Using these techniques helps promote the body’s amazing and natural ability to heal itself.
4. A Non-Invasive Method
Chiropractic treatment is non-invasive and is very effective. A car accident is stressful enough, so need to worry about surgeries, needles, or anything like that. Instead, chiropractic treatments, like adjustments, help realign your body which will lessen your aches and pains and promotes healing.
5. Treat the Cause
It is important that the cause of the pain is treated and not just the symptoms. It is okay to treat the symptoms, of course, but remember that is just temporary relief. The staff at Spinal Rehab of North County can treat the cause of the pain and eliminate it entirely.
