Car accidents are scary for more than one reason. Aside from the life threatening position that one is in, the scary stuff doesn’t end there. If you are fortunate enough to walk away from a car accident, you are sure to experience a mixture of hospital bills, insurance claims and the inconvenience of minor injuries and stress. While all of this is very terrifying, your health ought to be pushed to the forefront. At Santa Clara Chiropractic Center, we work very closely with patients who have been in a car accident, but there are many others that never make an appointment.
Why is visiting the chiropractor after an accident so important?
It is not the severity or size of the accident that matters, not for chiropractic care, it’s the impact. Regardless of the severity of your accident, impact was made and your body reacted. People always complain of whiplash, but don’t realize that the side effects of an accident can appear months after the fact, creating incredible discomfort and pain. In these instances, it’s chiropractic care that can provide relief.
As your car is impacted by the crash, your body is pushed in the same direction. Since the movement is not willingly done, our spine requires adjustment to get back to a healthy state. We may not realize how much of an impact an accident would have, but when you visit a chiropractor, they will be able to see just where your spine shifted from the accident and will get it back in place.
If you’ve recently been in an accident, schedule an appointment at Santa Clara Chiropractic Center for your chiropractic adjustment. Visiting a chiropractor sooner than later could prevent you from discomfort, pain and long term injuries.
