Were you in a car accident? You feel fine, but are you? You may not know. That is why you should see a chiropractor. Do you need more reasons?
1 – You May Have an Injury and Not Know It
Most individuals mistakenly believe that they will be in pain if they have an injury. This is not always true. Damage to the body, muscles, joints, and spine typically hurts, but there are no guarantees. Some damage is just minor enough that there is no pain. However, a smaller injury or just time can lead to aggravation and then pain. Why not prevent this from happening? You can with chiropractic care.
After a car accident, a chiropractor will meet with you. They will gather your medical history, perform a quick physical exam, and ask questions about your car accident. They will diagnose any problems and decide on a course of treatment. This treatment can include joint adjustments or therapeutic massages to relieve pain that will go away on its overtime.
2 – It Is Less Invasive
With chiropractic care, surgery is a last resort. Even then, you are referred to a specialty surgeon. No surgical tools or invasive medical procedures are needed for treatment. Chiropractors rely on manual therapy, which is a therapy of the hands. As previously stated, a joint adjustment may be necessary to properly realign a joint. This is done with the precision force of the hands. There is no cutting of the skin or drawing of blood.
After a car accident, many accident victims fear seeking medical treatment. They worry about surgery or being loaded up on prescription medications that have many side effects. Although you may fear the hospital or your primary care physician, you have no reason to fear a chiropractor. Although you are seeking medical care, a trip to the chiropractor may feel more like a trip to the spa than a doctor’s visit.
3 – No Medications
As previously stated, chiropractic care involves the use of manual therapy. This is 100% all-natural. If a chiropractor cannot see a patient right away, they may suggest the use of over-the-counter pain medications. After treatment, they are no longer needed. Pain relievers do provide relief, but that relief is short-lived and it only masks the problem. Chiropractors want to eliminate your pain, but they do so by going directly to the source.
Whiplash victims may receive ongoing massages to treat pain and discomfort. Whiplash corrects itself over time, but not all corrections are proper. A patient who does not wear a neck brace or does not limit their activities can experience complications. In these instances, neck adjustments or vertebrae realignment are preformed. Once again, this is done with the hands and not with medications or surgical tools.
4 – It Is Safe
Although chiropractic care is 100% natural, is there is some concern about the force used in adjustments. What if a chiropractor slip? Will more damage occur? These are legitimate questions, but you do not need to worry. Chiropractors are medical professionals. They are educated and trained as such. Not anyone can be a chiropractor. It requires training, education, the passing of many tests, and a state license. If your chiropractor is a Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.), you can rest assured knowing you are safe in their hands.
Not only is chiropractor a safe form of healthcare, but it is ideal for individuals of all ages. Some parents bring their newborns in for examination following birth! Yes, they do, and it is perfectly safe. If your child is in the car with you during an accident, their primary care physician may prescribe pain medication that may even be dangerous, especially for some children. The 100% natural relief of chiropractic care is safe for individuals of all ages and even pregnant women.
5 – It Is Sometimes Covered by Insurance
Following a car accident, your focus may be on costs. After all, your car is damaged. You may have to pay for a new method of transportation, but now healthcare too. As previously stated, some injuries are hard to spot immediately following an automobile accident. Do not wait to get diagnosed until after the incident and after all insurance claims have been filed. Know now.
Luckily, many insurance providers extend coverage for chiropractic care. Many realize that it can lower their operating costs. The onetime cost of neck realignment is much cheaper than 10 years of prescribed pain medications or surgery.
