After you have been injured in an accident, if the only medical attention you received, was provided in the Emergency Room at your local hospital, or at an Urgent Care clinic, you may be risking prolonged or permanent damage to your health. Prescriptions for pain medications may dull the pain, but these medications will not help your body heal.
Should you see a chiropractor after a car accident?
In short, the answer is yes, you should always see a doctor or chiropractor following a car accident. If you were the victim in a car crash caused by someone else being reckless, then you should definitely see an accident injury chiropractor after the incident. Even a low-speed auto collision can cause substantial pain and injury to your spine.
Unfortunately, car accidents can cause serious and permanent injury to your body and spine. Our doctors have experience in evaluating and diagnosing these injuries with a high degree of success. Because many of these injuries will not become symptomatic for 14-21 days after the accident, it is very important that you schedule a consultation at Back in Balance Chiropractic & Day Spa immediately after your accident.
