A car accident can happen in just an instant, but its impact on your life can be long-lasting. There are car repairs, other financial costs you may incur as a result, and the legal implications of the accident. These are just a few of the problems you may have to face even if it was just a fender bender and even if you were not responsible for the accident. But in all of this, don't forget about your health. Even during minor accidents, you can suffer from an auto accident injury that you cannot see or feel right away, but this is where your Newark, DE, chiropractor can help. You can learn more about the benefits of seeing a chiropractor after an auto injury by reaching out to Dr. Matthew DeFroda of the reNu Medical & Injury Center.
Injuries You Cannot See
If you require an ambulance after an auto accident you are typically taken to an emergency room, but unless your injuries are severe you are usually discharged to receive follow-up care somewhere else. But even with low-impact collisions injuries are also frequent but not apparent at the moment.
In both circumstances, there is the possibility to miss an injury altogether, so it's important to see a chiropractor who can take the time to examine you closely.
For example, one of the most common of these unseen--and often overlooked--injuries is whiplash. These can occur even at low speeds, they happen when your body is forced to a sudden and complete stop while your head rapidly moves back and forth.
It may feel like neck and back discomfort at first, but without treatment, it can linger for a very long time or become more painful. But your chiropractor can help you relieve discomfort as well as improve your range of movement, and with it your overall quality of life.
