Chiropractic Care after a Car Accident

When it comes to car accidents, paramedics are often the first health care professionals who attend to your needs.  Their job is to assess whether you should be rushed to the hospital for immediate medical treatment or deal with any life-threatening injuries right on the scene.  Fractures, concussions, lacerations and other potential internal injuries will necessitate your escorted trip to the hospital.
Some people encounter pain and tension right away. For others, the symptoms may get worse over time. This typically results in the neck moving very rapidly through an excessive range of motion, contributing to hyperflexion-hyperextension injuries that can affect soft tissues in the neck as well as joint capsules and intervertebral discs. Whiplash is the name often associated with car accident neck injuries.

Depending upon the degree of injury, your recommended course of action will differ. To determine what you should do, first consult with your Chiropractor. Chiropractors are MSK specialists. They have the know-how to assess and treat almost any problem related to the nerves, muscles, joints and connective tissues of the spine.

Your Chiropractor will conduct a physical assessment of you and determine the best course of action.
