Accident & Injury Care Services
Navigating life after an accident or injury isn’t easy. In addition to dealing with the pain and stress caused by the injury itself, you also have other details that need to be sorted out. Depending on the nature of the incident, there are insurance companies to call, repair shops to be visited, police reports to be filed, and possibly even legal actions that need to be taken.
Even if you feel mostly fine, it’s best to get examined by a professional. Some injuries sustained from events such as an auto accident can remain undetected for months or even years. Over time, they can result in symptoms such as sore muscles, reduced range of motion, headaches, neck pain, spinal pain, and more.
Don’t assume that your issues have taken care of themselves. If you’ve recently been injured in an accident, schedule an appointment with a chiropractor. For personalized, trustworthy chiropractic care in the Savage/Prior Lake area, contact Watkins Family Chiropractic today.
Why You Shouldn’t Wait to See a Chiropractor
If you’ve been in a car accident, you likely experienced some soreness in the days that followed. You may be tempted to take some pain medication, ice the sensitive areas, and wait for the pain to subside while you focus on other matters. The problem, sudden impacts like a car accident can cause deeper issues in your body that aren’t immediately apparent.
It’s not until months or even years later that you look back and realize you’ve never felt the same since the accident. Lingering headaches, spinal pain, numbness in the arms or legs, or reduced range of motion become apparent, prompting you to finally seek healthcare. Unfortunately, by that point your injuries can be more challenging to treat.
Even a seemingly minor rear-end collision at a stoplight can lead to significant injuries and a host of spinal and muscle problems in the future.
It is crucial to identify and treat all injuries as quickly as possible after an auto accident. Taking proactive measures to address injuries early on is much easier than attempting to fix a major injury that has been left untreated for an extended period.
While your medical doctor may diagnose severe injuries such as fractures and concussions, they may not be specifically trained to detect damage to your neck and spine. This is where chiropractors play a crucial role. Chiropractors specialize in treating the movement and mechanics of the neck and spine, and they can often identify and treat issues before symptoms even arise.
