There are a few things that happen often during the summer, and while most of them are fun and sun related, some are more worrying. Unfortunately, we do hear about a lot of car accidents around this time of year. Whatever the reason may be, if it is weather related, due to a distracted driver, or car failure, it is always terrifying to be in one. Car accidents are one horrible occurrence after another. Not only do you have the fear and pain during the initial collision, you then have to deal with insurance, the possibility of being forced to get a new car, and then your insurance rates go up despite the fact it may not have been your fault. Having to deal with all of the other stuff that surrounds an accident, sometimes it takes a while before you realize you are still hurting. Other times, any damage that may have been done may take a while before surfacing. While there is never an easy way to stop the pain, there are many options.
While many times after an accident, people will have prescription pain killers given to them by a doctor, that doesn’t always cut it. Either the pain is still felt or the script runs out and the pain has not yet gone away. Sometimes doctors won’t refill the prescription and other times you don’t want to keep taking them. Both are extremely valid reasons for looking for other options to deal with the pain from your recent accident.
We here at Wirth Chiropractic can help. Studies have shown that chiropractic care after a trauma such as a car accident can help not only relieve the pain, but also can help solve any issues that may have resulted from the impact. While the pain is what you feel, it may have resulted from a pinching of a nerve or a straining of muscles or any number of things. Chiropractic adjustments are meant to realign the spine and other bones which may have been hurt during the collision.
