How Commonplace Auto Accidents Can Cause Health Complications

Posted By Atlanta Pain & Rehab || 10-May-2017

Auto accidents are extremely common place in the United States, with thousands of fatalities and serious injuries being reported annually. Thankfully, most car crashes are not catastrophic enough to call for immediate medical attention and life-saving procedures. This does not mean, however, that no one in the crash is injured.

Many people who walk away from a traffic collision seemingly fine will begin to experience pain, soreness, and stiffness shortly after. Some might not start to feel discomfort until days, weeks, or months go by, but the source of those injuries are an auto accident all the same. For this reason and more, it is crucial to get a checkup or two after being in a crash, even if you think you are doing fine.

Some health complications that can occur after even a low-speed collision are:

Treating Auto Accident Injuries & Complications

The issue with subtle yet painful and persistent injuries is that they are difficult to correct, or even notice, during emergency medical treatment. If they are identified, medical technicians may opt to ignore them at that time in order to address life-threatening injuries. What can be done about these other problems and complications?

Rehabilitative and therapeutic treatments are often the first choice of solutions for addressing stiffness, pain, and lingering complications after an auto accident. With the right mix of chiropractic measures, massage therapy, and other methods, and targeting the right areas of the body, many problems can be noticeably alleviated or lessened without the need of drugs or surgery. Patients often report immediately results after just one session, but a routine schedule may be necessary to ensure the injury or condition never worsens as time goes on.
