In An Auto Accident? Get Medical Attention as Soon as Possible
Regardless of the size of an injury--or even if you feel fine--you need to get checked out after you’ve been in an auto accident. Even with all the technology protecting us, getting tossed around or shaken up while in a moving hunk of metal is never good for the body.
We at Innovate Health in the Fort Worth area have seen too many auto injury cases get worse than they ever should have due to not knowing how bad things really were. We want to see you as soon as possible.
Auto Injuries Can Linger
A car accident jars your body from head to toe. Chiropractic care aims to restore balance so small or invisible problems don’t turn into lifelong conditions. Some injuries take up to months to appear, like chronic headaches, pain in your back, abdomen, neck, and joints.
While not always life threatening, headaches can be your first red flag that you need some medical attention. They can be a sign of traumatic brain injuries or stem from a neck injury.
Pain sets in anywhere in your body over time because an auto accident jostles your entire body and can leave you with a misalignment. Your body compensates by moving in ways it wasn’t designed, which alters your muscle structure and further tugs on your skeleton, making it critical to get seen ASAP to avoid this painful scenario.
The sooner you get seen, the faster and more complete your recovery. We’ll perform a thorough examination to determine the root cause of any and all your injuries, provide an accurate diagnosis, and work with you to get you on the fastest path to healing.
In addition to being able to provide medical documentation, chiropractors have the added benefit of caring for you without having to resort to prescription drugs or surgery. Instead of masking the symptoms, we get to the cause.
