Seeking Treatment with our Summerlin Chiropractor after an Auto Accident
Whether a fender bender or a T-bone accident, you were just in an auto accident and you’re very shaken up. You can move freely and don’t seem to have broken any bones, so of course, your next concern is your car.
You may have sustained more injuries than you thought, and it may sometimes take weeks for you to realize this. That’s why you should always accept medical care after an accident and then decide which further treatment you need from there.
Common Injuries after an Auto Accident
Here are the injuries you may sustain after an auto accident:
- Torn ACL and other ligament injuries
- Broken bones
- Foot and ankle pain
- Hand and arm pain
- Abdomen, pelvis, and internal organ injuries
- Blunt force trauma to the chest or head
- Neck swelling and pain
- Whiplash, which can harm the neck, back, or shoulders
- Spinal cord injuries, including herniated discs, protruding discs, or pinched nerves
- Concussions and other traumatic brain injuries
When to Visit our Summerlin Chiropractor
After your accident, you’ll be admitted to a local hospital. There, a doctor will check you over. If you have an injury, you may be held overnight or longer for further care. If not, you’re usually discharged the same day.
If your pain persists for weeks after the accident or gets worse instead of better, you should contact a Summerlin and Las Vegas chiropractor for treatment. It is possible for auto accident pain to become chronic without the proper treatment, so don’t delay.
