Being in a car accident in Utah can be terrifying and overwhelming. Many people who have been in an auto accident must deal with both physical and emotional damages following the accident. While no one wants to be in an automobile accident, it’s sometimes unavoidable. It’s important to know how to treat your injuries and what steps to take next. Visiting our Pleasant Grove chiropractor for professional care is always one of the first things you should do. Local chiropractors at Flat Rate Chiropractic specialize in treating the most common automobile accident-related injuries.
Chiropractic physicians are able to treat back and neck injuries, whiplash, and help with soft tissue and joint pain. You may also be suffering from headaches, pain or other discomfort as a result of a whiplash-related injury. Most people assume that whiplash injuries only occur during high-speed accidents, but a change in speed of just 5 miles per hour can cause them.
Some individuals experience indicators of whiplash injuries right away, such as blurred vision, headaches, shoulder pain, dizziness, reduced range-of-motion and arm pain. Whiplash can also result in minor back injuries, muscle injuries, ligament problems and disc damage. Other individuals may not experience any serious injuries right away and may think they are just “stiff” or “sore” after the accident when serious injuries could be forming.
If left untreated, these issues can go on to cause other additional serious health problems. In fact, you may not think you have been injured in a car accident, and then start to experience discomfort or headaches several months after the fact. This is why you should always visit us for an evaluation, even if you think there may not be a serious injury to blame. First adjustments are free so even if you don’t have a claim number you can still get evaluated with no out of pocket expense. So when looking for “chiropractors near me”, make sure to give us a call.
