The damage to your vehicle will be apparent, but the severity of your injuries may not be immediately obvious. Most patients do not feel serious pain during the first few days following a wreck. In many cases, the onset of symptoms is delayed by days or weeks.
Some of the first signs and symptoms of an auto injury include: headaches, sleeping problems, trouble concentrating, and decreased range of motion. Bones in the spine may get pulled out of alignment in an accident, spinal disc injuries may occur, and ligaments may become lax. This could lead to pain, numbness and tingling, and a sense of weakness in the arms and legs. It is vital to be examined for these types of injuries and begin therapy to correct appropriately.
Chiropractic care has proven to be highly beneficial in providing pain relief for individuals involved in auto injuries! These are some of the benefits patients experience:
- Improved range of motion
- Decreased pain
- Decreased misalignment
- Reduced inflammation and swelling
- Decreased headaches
- Improved strength
- Increased energy
- Improved sleep
