Car accidents are very scary. Many people feel “fine” and “shaken up” after an accident and tell those at the accident they’re “ok.”
Often times pain, headaches, dizziness and nausea can set in immediately, can even start that night or the next day. It doesn’t matter if it’s a fender bender or your car was totalled. Many people go without having someone evaluate their brain and body for functional changes and soft tissue injuries after leaving the scene, or after leaving a hospital. If you know someone who’s been in an accident and isn’t sure what to do, have them call our office.
We are here to help.
If you’ve been in a car accident, there is a good chance you’ve sustained microscopic tissue injuries at the least, and possibly more serious musculoskeletal injuries. Regardless of the severity of the accident, if you’re in a little bit of pain or a lot, you should schedule an appointment for evaluation.
Common symptoms following a car accident:
- headaches (from whiplash)
- neck pain (from whiplash)
- shoulder pain (from the seat belt)
- low back pain
- foot pain (from your foot being on the pedal)
- nausea, dizziness, balance issues (from possible concussion)
These are some of the most common symptoms we see following a car accident.
Sometimes the pain doesn’t show up for 1-2 weeks afterward. Don’t wait for the pain to start. Seek medical attention immediately if necessary, and present to our office for rehabilitation of your brain and body afterward. You will be happy you did.
“Honestly if I knew that getting in a car accident would have brought me to this clinic, I would have gotten in a car accident a long time ago. After sending my wife to you, we are so happy you’ve been able to help us both.” – Patient A.R.
You can start your treatment as early as the first visit. We will refer you out for imaging (X-ray or MRI) as needed. If you have any images or reports from seeking immediate medical attention, we request you bring those with you to your first visit.
