Often times when you are in an auto accident, pain does not appear right away. It could take hours, days, or even weeks after the accident occurred. One may believe that they are walking away “without a scratch”, but the crippling pain will soon surface.
Why the pain occurs
When you get into a car accident, your body produces defensive hormones automatically. For example, adrenaline is produced as the body’s natural painkiller. A person can go into a state of shock after the accident, which can mask pain or any other symptoms of injury. It is then hours or days later when they actually realize that they were injured during the accident.
Common Post Traumatic Pain Symptoms
Some post-traumatic pain symptoms may be:
- Excruciating pain in head, neck, or back.
- Difficulty breathing
- Pain while urinating
- Consistent tingling or numbness
If you experience any of these symptoms after an automobile accident it is important to seek medical treatment immediately.
Getting the help you need
Most injuries related to car accidents are typically related to the spinal column. When a collision causes the spine to go out of its natural balance, it can result in pains in the neck and back, headaches, muscle spasms, and many other crippling symptoms.
Chiropractic care can treats imbalances in the spinal column, nerves, discs, and vertebrae. In many cases, chiropractic care has been enough to permanently relieve pain caused by an automobile accident in a gentle and effective manner.
Effectively relieve auto accident pain
Chiropractic care is known to ease pain after a car accident and effectively terminate back pain naturally. Through spinal adjustments, it takes the pressure off your spine and joints. Relieving this pressure causes the nerves in the joints to relax, which can eliminate or reduce back pain.
Massage therapy can also be a fast and effective way to reduce or eliminate back and neck pain due to a car accident or other traumatic injuries. Chiropractic care is also effective in relieving headaches due to a traumatic accident.
If you or someone you know have been in a car accident, it is important to contact a chiropractic professional even if there are no symptoms of pain yet. The pain can take days or even WEEKS to develop. Don’t wait! Get the help you need as soon as possible.
