car accidents and chiropractic
Have you been injured in a car accident recently? Chiropractic may help.
Have you or someone you know been injured in a car accident? The impact of a car accident, even a small one, can cause significant injury/trauma to your body, with or without immediate symptoms.
A thorough chiropractic checkup, immediately after an accident, may identify any injury or trauma sustained during the accident.
Additionally, a chiropractic checkup may assess if you have any pre-existing conditions that warrant further investigation. If the chiropractor finds an issue, early treatment may prevent any injury from manifesting as a health crisis later in life.
A study published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association (Dies and Strapp) concluded that those patients who underwent a chiropractic checkup and treatment immediately after a car accident required fewer sessions compared to those who waited some time before seeking help. Improvement level was lowered by delay in seeking treatment.
