Auto Injury

If you’ve been involved in an auto accident, Dr. Jack Walker at SFL Chiropractic in Delray Beach, FL, is the auto injury chiropractor to have by your side.

4 Reasons to Visit An Auto Injury Chiropractor

After an auto accident, you were likely checked at the scene for any life-threatening injuries. You might have even gone to the emergency room to ensure everything was good. That should be enough, right?

Not exactly. Emergency personnel are great at their jobs, which is checking for anything that needs emergency attention. However, you still need to be checked thoroughly in a follow-up visit – something they typically recommend themselves. Below, Dr. Walker and the team at SFL Chiropractic in Delray Beach, FL, share some of the most important reasons you should be sure to visit an auto injury chiropractor any time you’re a victim in an auto accident.

1. Your Body Has Sustained a Great Amount of Force

Even if you are only driving at five miles per hour, your vehicle has collided with something. This means that your body sustains the force of that collision, no matter how minor it may seem. It only takes a small amount of pressure to impact the musculoskeletal system, especially when that force comes out of nowhere.

2. Pain and Inflammation Are Par for the Course

Most people involved in accidents walk away with – at a minimum – slight pain and inflammation. This is the body’s natural response to trauma. The pain is telling you that something isn’t right. The inflammation is the body’s way of rushing to repair the injury. Chiropractic care can help reduce both pain and inflammation by addressing the cause.

3. Auto Injuries Are Often Hidden

Not all injuries are noticeable immediately, especially after a traumatic experience like an auto accident. Emotional shock can make you numb to pain. Additionally, any inflammation and muscle stiffness can make it difficult to know what’s going on beneath the surface layers. However, a chiropractor can detect these hidden issues and provide effective treatment.

4. Injuries Can Cause Issues for Years to Come

Many people assume that any pain, tension, or inflammation will dissipate in a few days, so they go about their normal lives. Unfortunately, ignoring an injury can leave you dealing with the repercussions days, weeks, months, or even years down the line. Seeking chiropractic care from the beginning can prevent this ongoing suffering.

Don’t let auto injuries impact the rest of your life. Schedule an appointment with our auto injury chiropractor Dr. Walker at SFL Chiropractic in Delray Beach, FL, by calling (561) 461-7240 today.
