Being in a car accident is a very difficult situation on a number of levels. Your pain from the car accident, often related to whiplash, and sprained muscles and ligaments, is sometimes secondary to the aftermath of having your car at the mechanic as well as the stress of dealing with your auto and health insurance and potentially missing work.
Dr. Jeff Gerdes is experienced in treating patients who have sustained injuries from car accidents.
Chiropractic Care After a Car Accident
While you are in a hurry to get your car fixed and get back to normal activities, you should be aware your pain may worsen in the days following the accident. Neck pain, back pain, headaches, trouble sleeping, dizziness, ringing in the ears, numbness and tingling in the shoulder, legs, feet and hands, along with shoulder and knee pain are signs there may be serious problems….and valid reasons to seek medical attention. There could be underlying injuries that are not allowing you to recover.
The tests done at the hospital after the accident were for ruling out fractures, but ER doctors may have missed your soft tissue injuries which are not always seen on X-rays or CT scans. Often times additional diagnostics testing after a trip to the hospital following a car accident is medically necessary. These tests may include X-rays, MRI studies, nerve conductions studies, and range of motion evaluations.
A car accident can be a major physical and emotional event, and the trauma that comes from them can be significant.
