What You Should Know If You’ve Been In a Car Accident

When you’ve been involved in a car accident, not only do you suffer the initial shock of the accident, but later you may experience pain, numbness and tingling, muscle stiffness, and other problems. An injury sustained in an auto accident can go months without being detected. It is important that you have yourself evaluated by a doctor before you settle your case with the insurance companies so that you can get the right care.

If you have been injured, make sure you get the treatment you need so you can get back to where you were physically before the accident. Make sure you are checked out by a doctor who understands connective tissue issues and the biomechanics of the human body. Don’t settle your claim until you know the damage to your vehicle and your body.

For example, car accidents can cause post-traumatic osteoarthritis. This can affect your posture, cause the discs in your spine to degenerate, and create scar tissue that can lead to chronic stiffness and deter proper movement. This can be debilitating but is treatable if you have been evaluated.

A chiropractor can perform the proper neurological and orthopedic test you need to evaluate the extent of your injuries. Our Doctor can assess your muscle strength, joint and nerve function, and range of motion – and provide x-rays to uncover internal structural injuries.
