The first thing that happens to you after an accident is the pain, and is the first thing to leave after starting Chiropractic care. What follows is the repair and return of your activities of daily living, which takes a much longer time.
One of the first things to remember after an accident is to drink plenty of water. Your body has been traumatized which causes a flood of lactic acid in the muscles causing, stiffness and pain. Water flushes it out of your body, returning your body closer to normal.
If your body is left untreated, it can lead to bodyguarding, areas of motion can be lost, along with your flexibility.
The sooner Chiropractic care is introduced after an accident, the more significant your recovery, and decreased time it takes to get there.
Chiropractic care combined with homework, home stretches, and exercise can help increase your mobility.
There is a misconception floating around, that if your accident is a lower speed accident, or there is very little damage, directly correlates, to the bodily injury or lack of. This misconception has been researched and has been found not to have any relationship at all, between damage of a car, and the damage/injury received by an occupant in the car accident.

Injuries are not always obvious, like broken bones, cuts, and bruises. There are hidden injuries, such as stretched muscles and tendons. These are not seen on X-ray. The key is not to wait for the pain to seek help. Ignoring the fact that you have been in an accident, and have been traumatized/assaulted, can lead to long-term pain, decreased motion, restrictions, and scar tissue.
When your accident injury is caused by someone else, their insurance company is responsible to pay for your medical treatment. You will need to seek medical attention immediately, otherwise, you risk the chance of having your claim be denied. Also, you may have to contact a lawyer that specializes in accidents and personal injury to fight your case for you.
