After a car accident, many people believe they are not injured if they are not in pain. However, many injuries do not show symptoms for days or weeks after an accident. It is important to get a diagnosis and treatment after an auto accident. At Vitality Health Services, serving Fremont and Hayward, CA, our experts provide natural treatment options for auto accident injuries. There are many different injuries and conditions you can suffer from after an accident. Our chiropractor will treat them so you can return to a pain-free life.
What Are the Most Common Auto Accident Injuries?
An auto accident injury can impact virtually any area of the body, or even multiple areas of the body at once. Even mild accidents, like being rear-ended, can lead to tissue damage and inflammation.
At our chiropractic clinic, we've seen patients come to us with a range of injuries following a car crash, including:
- Headaches and migraines
- Shoulder dislocation and shoulder pain
- Hip pain
- Knee pain
- Back pain
- Herniated disc
- Muscle spasms
Some patients unfortunately experience more severe physical trauma as a result of auto accidents, and may need several sessions of chiropractic care to help the body heal.
Will I Feel Pain Right After My Motor Vehicle Crash?
If you have an auto accident injury, you might notice pain, swelling, and other symptoms immediately. However, you might also feel fine for a few days and assume you are not injured. After a few days, you may start to experience back stiffness, trouble sleeping, or other frustrating symptoms.
Don't ignore these symptoms. An auto accident injury may remain hidden so long as fight or flight hormones (which surged during the initial crash) are elevated. For this reason, it is vital to consult with our chiropractor after any type of car accident. Early evaluation can prevent a hidden problem from getting worse and spare you from chronic and costly pain in the future.
