Auto accidents can be stressful, from dealing with insurance to taking your car to the mechanic to possibly missing work, and pain can often take a back seat to everything you have to deal with. However, seeking medical attention should always be a priority after an accident.
Auto accidents shake bodies up, and it is very likely that misalignment, subluxation or injury resulted from yours. When your body is jerked forward and backward quickly, whiplash, misalignment of the spine and tears to ligaments can occur, and if they are left untreated, these injuries can turn into chronic pain or lead to a worse injury down the line. Even if you feel minor pain after an accident, you should see a chiropractor, and here at Summit Chiropractic and Longevity Center, Dr. Kent Carlomagno can restore your health and help you work your way back toward normalcy.
In addition to pain, the misalignment of your spine could also lead to loss of mobility, especially if you’re older. Chiropractic can increase your mobility, reduce your pain and decrease the chance of injuring yourself worse in the future. By correcting your alignment and treating the root cause of your injuries, your body’s overall health can be restored.
