Auto Accident Injuries
Auto accidents commonly occur, but they may leave you with ailments that simply refuse to go away. It is always a good and healthy practice to visit a chiropractor immediately after meeting with an accident. Ailments such as neck and back injuries, sore and stiff muscles, shoulder injuries, knee injuries and a variety of other aches and pains can be effectively treated by Dr. Rudick.
Why visit a chiropractor after an accident?
Whiplash is among the most prominent injuries linked with vehicular accidents. A chiropractor can effectively help with such injuries even if symptoms begin to surface days after the accident. Whiplash occurs due to a sudden change in speed and as the change in speed increases, several other injuries may also occur pertaining to the back, neck, and spinal cord.
Such injuries often take place when the vehicle is not able to fully absorb the force of impact. In such cases, the residual forces of impact are often transferred to the passengers in the vehicle and lead to several internal and external injuries. Of these, the external injuries can be treated easily, whereas internal injuries such as soft tissue damage often remain undetected. They then materialize several years later in the form of scar tissue. Damage to the neck and spinal cord can also lead to chronic muscle tension, degeneration of the spinal disc, inflamed arthritis, and several other ailments. Visiting an expert chiropractor in such situations can help nip these issues in the bud before they can wreak havoc in your body. The expert chiropractor can help you to fully recover from the traumatic injuries sustained in an auto accident.
