It may be tempting to think that the only reason to seek chiropractic care following a car accident is if the accident was major and the injuries incurred were serious or debilitating. However, there are two important points that must be made. First is that minor car accidents can often result in nagging, painful, and/or debilitating injuries. Second is that even minor injuries from minor car accidents can require the expertise that the staff of Advanced Medical of Twin Cities can provide you.
Chiropractic Treatment After Minor Car Accidents
Automobiles are constructed nowadays better than they ever have been, which means that what may be considered a minor car accident could be the result of the car’s solid engineering and structural integrity. The human cargo in those automobiles may be better protected than ever, but a minor car accident can still throw you around inside your car and cause a wide array of chiropractic problems.
This is where the team at Advanced Medical of Twin Cities can help you. We want you to know that it is perfectly normal to feel the effects on your body after a minor car accident. It may be tempting to think that a minor car accident cannot do damage to your body, but if you have ever awakened after sleeping in an odd position with a neck so sore that you could barely move your head, it may be easier to understand how the impact of a minor car accident could cause an issue that requires the kind of treatment we can offer.
The symptoms that can occur after a minor car accident may not be much different than those experienced after a more serious accident. You could emerge with:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Chronic pain
- Localized limb discomfort
- Nerve damage or
- General soreness or tightness
