After being in a car wreck, many people have spinal injuries. This can cause a serious condition that irritates nerves, affects bones, ligaments and discs and can damage your overall health. Even low velocity accidents can cause devastating injuries. Medical research shows that there is no relationship between the damage to a car and the damage to a person. The medical research that shows different has been exposed as having been written by doctor’s who were paid by insurance companies to write the articles.
After suffering a serious car accident or a minor wreck, you may want to see a Wichita, Derby or Andover chiropractor for a spinal checkup. A chiropractor’s eye is trained to detect spinal injuries.
If you go to a Chiropractor you may receive Chiropractic manipulations. This is a method for manipulating the bones in the spine. It is often accompanied by a cracking or popping sound much like the sound of cracking the knuckles. This treatment has been shown to be very effective for spinal injuries. Chiropractors will also use some of the same tools that physical therapists use such as ultrasound, diathermy, and interferential muscle stimulation.
Your first step should always be to call 911 and get immediate medical treatment for other trauma, but within the next few days you may want to have a checkup by a local chiropractor. Because injuries to the spine and head can often be ignored, long-term damage can be caused if proper medical treatment is not received in a timely fashion.
