Recovering from a Car Accident – Advanced Chiropractic Care in Seattle Specializes in Spinal Rehabilitation After a Car Accident
Being involved in a car accident is something most of us have probably experienced at some point in our lives – from small fender benders to more serious wrecks that involve serious injuries. Unfortunately, the trend towards more dangerous roadways has now become commonplace in our society, and with more distracted drivers behind the wheels, car accidents are now among the leading cause of personal injuries.
Despite our best efforts to drive safely and defensively, car accidents do happen, and when they do, we must be prepared to take appropriate action to make sure any injury suffered is quickly addressed, minimizing additional suffering later down the line. Unlike scrapes and bruises that heal rather quickly, other injuries such as ones to the spine, requires a much longer timeline to heal. Such injuries demand the assistance of a highly trained and experienced chiropractor who specializes in spinal rehabilitation.
The tricky part about spine misalignments is that most of us may not even realize we have it, often dismissing a minor headache or slight neck pain after a car accident as “no big deal.” Others don’t even feel any symptoms whatsoever, thinking they’ve walked away from a car accident unscathed.
Those who do feel pain often resort to taking pain killers or wearing a neck brace, which does nothing in terms of healing your spine or addressing the root cause of such issues, causing the injury to go untreated for weeks, months or even years. Leaving a spine misaligned for a prolonged period of time will lead to more serious health matters such as chronic pain, digestive issues, respiratory issues, chronic fatigue, depression or even heart palpitations to name a few.
If you have been in a car accident, please see a chiropractor immediately for a full assessment of the health of your spine, even if you don’t feel any discomfort whatsoever. A small misalignment can only get worse with time, so addressing this injury quickly can mean a faster recovery time and less health problems in the future.
