Did you know that even a small fender bender can cause back pain, headaches and even arthritis? In most cases, people who are involved in smaller car accidents don’t seem to suffer symptoms initially and avoid that time consuming trip to the doctor to get checked out, but that could be a huge mistake!
Getting hit from behind in a car can cause even the slightest amount of shifting in the vertebrae that are in your spine, but even this small shift can mean big problems for you. Chronic pain and frequent headaches can occur as a result of whiplash and abnormalities can include nerve problems and joint damage!
Appropriate chiropractic care can get you well on the road to recovery and back to your old self within a few weeks or months. Without treatment, 20% of those who suffer from whiplash as a result of a car accident will develop chronic pain.
Of those chronic sufferers, a mere 70% will have recovered within a year and 82% within two. Can you imagine living a year of two of your life with constant headaches and crippling back and leg pain? Fortunately, you don’t have to!
Chiropractors are licensed professionals, not unlike a primary care provider, and a select few have specialized training in whiplash and spinal trauma. If you’re looking for a drug-free, natural, therapeutic solution to the aches and painsassociated with whiplash, then look no further than the Belgrade Chiropractors at Pro Chiropractic.
There are alternatives to physical therapy and surgery, such as the care plans developed by licensed chiropractors. These plans take into consideration the severity of your accident, your pre-accident health as well as your schedule and any other medical needs. There is no one size fits all solution for patient care! Each patient’s care plan must be tailored to his or her individual requirements and specific situation.
With the proper treatment and care prescribed by a certified auto accident injury specialist, you can recover in less time than you would with other methods and get back to living your life instead of living in pain. If anything, whiplash can be a persistent reminder of a traumatic event so eradicating the irritation will soon set you on the path to both physical and emotional recovery.
A car accident has enough headaches associated with it, from dealing with the insurance company, the police and your adjuster. Don’t live with the additional headaches, aches and pains associated with whiplash, too. Forget about waiting it out or thinking it will get better on its own. When it comes to your spine, a hands on approach is best.
