Prevent Minor Injuries From Causing Chronic Pain

If you have been involved in a recent auto accident and are not currently feeling any pain, let us have a look. We can help ensure that complications do not arise in the future. Micro-tears within muscles and ligaments are extremely common injuries suffered by those involved in auto accidents. These injuries do not show up on x-rays, yet can lead to excruciating pain. The effects of whiplash, spinal misalignment, and many other injuries may also take some time to cause pain and stiffness. Let us help prevent these conditions from causing chronic pain. Let us correct them for you.

Do I Need to See a Doctor After a Vehicle Accident?

Many people falsely believe that by simply “waiting it out,” the body will heal. This is inaccurate. Failure to seek medical attention following involvement in a vehicle collision is a very dangerous and negligent approach to your health and well-being. The forces involved in even slow-speed crashes and seemingly minor fender-benders are absolutely immense and tend to cause damage to the back, neck, and shoulders. If the body is left to heal on its own, it may heal incorrectly –leading to pressure, excess scar tissue formation, inflammation, misalignment, limited range-of-motion, and long-term pain. If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident and are wondering if you should see a doctor, know that a proactive approach is always best. If treated early, many injuries are able to heal more rapidly. Ignoring or waiting on an injury to heal can cause more damage to the injured area, as well as other parts of your body.

Collett Family Chiropractic strongly advises that all patients involved in automobile accidents (no matter how minor or major) be evaluated immediately. You may see several medical professionals throughout the course of your treatment. For optimal physical recovery, be sure to include hands-on therapy from Collett Family Chiropractic.
