The Importance of Chiropractic Care After an Auto Accident
Did you know that not all auto accident related symptoms appear right after a collision? In fact, most symptoms take time to fully develop. It can take from a few days, several weeks to several months after an accident occurs. Often, small hairline fractures usually do not show up on x-rays if they are taken immediately after an accident. Soft tissue injuries are also not easy to assess. We understand that delayed symptoms can be as devastating as ones that immediately appear.
Post-collision, many people experience injury to muscles, reduced range of motion, and stiffness. In more extreme cases people suffer dizziness, headaches, and/or blurred vision. These symptoms stem from the body being placed under a sudden and intense amount of torque and stress. When the spine is misaligned, the unnatural positioning puts pressure on the surrounding muscles and joints.
Neglecting auto accident injuries can and do lead to further complications. Dr. Tilson is an injury chiropractor who has treated hundreds of car accident injury patients that have sought treatment immediately after an accident as well as years after. It is important to seek treatment as most patients are able to make a full recovery!

Benefits of Seeking Treatment After an Accident
Many patients who have sought medical treatment at an emergency room or received a hospital check-up after an accident may still experience pain. X-rays, CT scans and exam reports may not show the full extent of the personal injuries. Seeking chiropractic treatment sooner rather than later after an accident helps increase the chances of a successful claims reimbursement especially with the development of delayed symptoms.
