How Adjustments Help After An Accident
Car accidents can cause joint injuries that are mild or severe. In some cases, injuries that start out mild can turn into more serious ones that cause persistent pain that gradually gets worse. At MetroSpine Clinics, we offer chiropractic adjustments for auto accident injuries to help relieve pain and promote the healing process.
Chiropractic adjustments for auto accident injuries are considered safe for most people. It is important to note that you might need to have multiple chiropractic adjustments done for effective pain relief, depending on how serious your injury is or how widespread it is. While some people feel mild discomfort after having adjustments done, this is a short-term side effect.
Whenever You Have Symptoms, See Your Doctor
A lot of personal injury attorneys have stories about clients coming into their offices saying they felt no pain at the scene of their accident, or later the same day. But the following morning they woke up feeling like they had been run over by a truck. These stories are credible — they’re not examples of healthy people looking for a payout via a lawsuit. It can take several hours, several days or even a week for injuries or serious discomfort to register with a car accident victim.
So, the lesson is this: whenever you feel symptoms of injury after a car accident — pain, numbness, dizziness, not feeling like yourself, whatever it is — get medical care. Don’t assume that your injuries will clear up on their own. Do the safe thing and get checked out.
