Car accidents are more likely to occur in rainy weather and the damage to your car, although costly and frustrating, comes second to the damage to your body.
If you are involved in an accident, follow the protocol of our “What to Do in Case of Auto Accident” brochure. It’s better to know what to do and what not to do BEFORE an accident. So be prepared!
Just look at how the whiplash injury occurs — rapid wave-like whipping, snapping and rebounding.
Your head and neck suffer the whipping…
hands, wrists, elbows and shoulders feel the force through the steering wheel and safety belt…
your torso, back and ribs endure multiple forces…
and your hips, knees, ankles and feet are impacted by the foot pedals and flooring.
After the initial shock, adrenaline, and acute swelling wear off, you really feel the impact.
Common symptoms you may suffer due to injuries from an auto accident are ones that chiropractors are best at treating. For over 20 years, we at Crossroads Chiropractic have helped injured drivers reduce their symptoms as well as prevent long term consequences from their injuries.
If you have been in an auto accident, whether small or large, call us immediately for an assessment. We will quickly get you out of the acute pain of the accident and we will help rehabilitate your body.
If your case is beyond our scope, we will refer you to an expert who will assist you in getting the best results for your situation.
The sooner you get help after an accident, the more likely you can prevent chronic pain, arthritis, trigger points, or muscle spasms due to the injury.
Feel free to call or email if you have any questions!
We are here to help you.
