Reasons to Visit a Chiropractor After an Auto Accident
Automobile accidents can cause millions of injuries every year. At first you may think nothing is wrong, but injuries like back problems or whiplash don’t always show up right away. Even if the automobile accident was very minor, it’s possible you can suffer with long-term problems if you ignore treatment. Dr. DeWitt can help relieve the pain that can come from automobile accidents. Here are several reasons why you should see a chiropractor after an accident.
Regular Physicians Can Miss Something
You may not notice pain immediately after an automobile accident, but you could still have an injury. Soft tissues could have been damaged, and this could bring painful conditions later on down the road. Unfortunately, x-rays are unable to detect such injuries, and even though an MRI can show soft tissue injuries, it can be even more expensive and impractical if you’re not experiencing any pain. A chiropractor is typically able to detect soft tissue injuries regular physicians often miss.
Your Health Insurance May Not Cover Care
After you’ve had an automobile accident, it’s still wise to go see a chiropractor even if there’s no pain. If your healthcare insurance won’t cover the cost, your car insurance likely will. This type of care is considerably cheaper for insurance providers than covering years of doctor’s visits, medications, and surgeries. A chiropractor specializes in realigning the body’s joints that could be out of alignment because of damage to ligaments and muscles from your automobile accident.
Surgery or Drugs
When seeing a chiropractor, there’s no need to worry about surgery. Rather than scalpels and incisions used in surgical procedures, chiropractors use very precise manual force to return body joints back to their proper alignment. It’s this manual therapy that doesn’t need the use of drugs for treatment. While over-the-counter pain relievers or prescription painkillers may offer some type of short-term relief from injuries caused by an automobile accident, chiropractic care can target the problem and offer a longer-term solution. It’s not recommended to have surgery for back or neck pain without talking to a chiropractor first. Because chiropractic care is non-invasive and completely natural, it’s considered to be very safe. Your time at the chiropractor’s office is a pleasant experience, and most people notice improvements right away.
