When you are involved in an auto accident, it's important to get the treatment you need right away. At Baker Chiropractic in Morganton, we can help you make a swift and smooth recovery after a car accident.
Common Car Accident Injuries
There are a few different injuries you're likely to suffer as a result of a car accident. Perhaps the most common injury after an auto accident is whiplash, which is a neck injury that results from the force and speed with which your neck moves back and forth during an accident. At the very least, you're going to be dealing with some scrapes, cuts, and bruises, and there's a decent chance you'll end up with a fractured or broken bone somewhere in your body.
As soon as you're involved in a car accident, you should visit a hospital. Even if you don't think anything is wrong, there could be underlying issues that pose a serious risk. This should be followed by a visit to a chiropractor to restore your body’s alignment and prevent injuries from going untreated.
Signs to Watch For
When you're involved in a car accident, chances are you're going to feel pretty rough afterward. However, it's important to understand the difference between a little bit of soreness and a serious problem. Here are some signs that you have experienced a serious injury that requires professional medical attention.
- Headaches that won't go away
- Pain or swelling in your abdomen
- Difficulty moving a limb
If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, we recommend you contact our chiropractor as soon as possible.
Chiropractic Auto Accident Treatment
Chiropractic care is a natural solution to pain in the neck, back, shoulders, knees, and more. Many of our patients prefer chiropractic care for auto accident injury treatment because it is natural and non-invasive. While prescription medication can effectively mask your pain, it does nothing to address the root cause of your pain. Surgery will be necessary in some rare cases, but most of the time it is best avoided. Over time, chiropractic adjustments will relieve your pain, improve your range of motion, and enhance your body’s natural healing process.
