Chiropractic Treatment Benefits

Auto Accident Pain

Many people involved in car accidents do not always have symptoms immediately following the accident. Dr. Heathcote believes the lack of initial pain is caused by your adrenalin which overrides your pain. It can cause you to be fooled into thinking that you are not injured when you actually are. Sometimes it may take weeks or months before you become aware of your symptoms.

Too often people do not seek treatment following an accident because they do not feel the pain following the accident. It is important to always be examined by an emergency room and/or your chiropractor following an accident to see if you are having any misalignment caused by the accident which can cause current and future health problems.

It is documented that whiplash injuries can expedite degenerative changes in the spine if left untreated. Therefore, it is important to be examined to see if you have injuries and treat them with chiropractic and exercise to help stabilize the injuries. If you have been involved in an accident, schedule an evaluation for yourself and your passengers even if pain has not appeared yet.
