Following a car accident, you might wonder if getting a chiropractic adjustment is appropriate. While a chiropractic adjustment may be just what you need, there are a few things you should consider when determining if this is the appropriate step for you. Some of the factors you should consider include:
- The extent of the accident
- Whether or not you are in pain
- If you have seen a specialist
Following a more serious car accident, the most appropriate course of action may be to go to the hospital. This is particularly true if you suffered from a head injury or if there is a chance of internal bleeding. Even after a minor accident, you may not realize that damage was done to your body. This is particularly true of soft tissue injuries, which can lead to chronic arthritis issues if left untreated. As such, the only way to rule out injury is to seek medical attention.
If you are not experiencing pain, it is still a good idea to see a chiropractor following a car accident. In order to increase your chances of having the treatment covered by insurance, it is best to see the chiropractor within two weeks of your accident. You can further protect your insurance rights by going to a hospital or seeing your primary care physician. If you are cleared by the hospital but are still experiencing pain, chiropractic care can help you address the issues you are facing.
