How a Chiropractor can Help After a Car Accident

There Is No Such Thing as an Injury-Free Auto Accident

Every year millions of people suffer fender benders and other auto accidents that they walk away from and every year millions of people develop neck and back pain that seems to creep up out of nowhere, not even remembering the auto accident that was its source. Dr. Novicky at Core Chiropractic in Warren, OH, wants you to know three important facts about whiplash and other auto accident consequences so you can find the treatment you need.

Whiplash Isn't Always Evident Immediately after an Accident

Whiplash is the syndrome of pain and unusual symptoms that can occur after an auto accident. When you are traveling in a car, your body is moving at the same speed as your car. When your car comes to a sudden stop, your body keeps moving forward until it is stopped by a seat belt, an airbag, a steering wheel, a dashboard, or worse.

Even at very low speeds, the impact of a sudden stop produces tiny tears in muscle tissue. Your immune system helps your muscles repair those tears by generating inflammation to remove injured cells. Inflammation in your neck muscles causes pain of its own, but your neck muscles are connected directly to your cervical spine, the vertebrae supporting your neck. Swollen muscles can pull your cervical spine out of alignment and pinch nerves serving other parts of your body. The effects of cervical spine misalignment sometimes aren't obvious for weeks, months, or even years.

It's Always a Good Idea to See Your Chiropractor as Soon as Possible After an Auto Accident

You don't have to wait until you have pain and a panoply of symptoms ranging from a sore neck to numb fingers to start treatment with your chiropractor. Your chiropractor can diagnose whiplash and other auto accident injuries before they present serious pain and lingering disability. You can have a higher quality of life and lose less time from your job with timely diagnosis and treatment by your chiropractor.

Your Chiropractor Can Help You Find Ways to Pay for Your Treatment

Did you know that treatment for auto accident injuries at your chiropractor is usually paid by your auto insurance policy or a medical lien on a pending settlement from the proceeds of the other party's insurance payment? You usually don't have to deal with high deductibles to get the care you need. Your chiropractor and staff know how to file your claim.
