From major car accidents to mild fender benders, the body responds differently than your damaged car. Following an accident, patients can feel pain throughout the body. In serious cases, a patient may be taken to the emergency room immediately following an accident. In less serious cases, the pain and problems may not be apparent for a few hours or days following the accident.
When an accident occurs, many patients will have soft tissue damage that we can’t see. Care can vary depending on the severity of the injury and depending on the patient.
The Doctors of Chiropractic at Scott Family Health can help you determine how severe your injury is, and how best to get you out of pain.
Treatment may vary depending on how extensive the injury is. Treatment may include a chiropractic adjustment, acupuncture or massage therapy, and possibly physical therapy. X-rays or other diagnostic tests may be necessary to determine the best care for your condition.
