Practicing nearly 30 years and taking care of patients who were injured in car accidents, it is important not to think… “the accident wasn’t that bad”. Signs and symptoms can appear days, weeks and even months after an accident.
Even if you were taken to an Emergency Department it is important to understand their role. They are there to make sure that you don’t need emergency services or to be admitted for more tests. After that, the discharged patients are left wondering what to do next. Almost always they are given medications that help with pain initially but when they wear off patients find that they are back where they were or even worse.
A visit to a chiropractor experienced in dealing with these types of injuries is vital to a good outcome.
