You may be surprised to discover aches and pain don’t necessarily show up right after a car accident.
If you’ve just recently been in a car accident then you know how traumatic and scary the situation can be. You may have felt stressed out, frazzled or upset at the time but physically felt fine. With adrenaline coursing through your veins, it’s not surprising that you might not feel a potential injury surfacing; however, over time you may start to notice a stiff neck or back problems. If so, our Everett, WA, chiropractor Dr. Christopher Keezer can help treat your issues.
What are some common car accident injuries?
It’s fairly common for it to take some time before symptoms of soft-tissue injuries appear. Our Everett, WA, chiropractic doctor often sees a lot of strains and sprains of the muscles and ligaments in the neck and back. In more serious accidents, soft-tissue tears can even occur. Whiplash is a common neck injury that occurs after a car accident. These injuries won’t appear in an x-ray, so you may be surprised if an ER visit didn’t discover anything. Of course, if you let pain persist it can lead to more serious long-term ramifications.
What can a chiropractor do to help?
Necks are often the most vulnerable spot to incur damage during a car accident. You may experience neck pain, swelling, headaches, dizziness, shoulder or arm pain, or numbness or weakness, just to name a few symptoms.
Fortunately, getting chiropractic care in Everett, WA, can help. When you come in for a consultation we will perform a thorough examination so we can determine the extent of your injury or injuries. From there we can create a treatment plan that will get you quickly on the road to recovery.
A chiropractor can realign the vertebra of the spine that has been knocked out of alignment and is putting pressure on certain joints in the body. By doing so, we can help boost the healing process while also providing you with exercises you can do just about anywhere.
