SoundCare Chiropractic, Seattle chiropractor
With our rainy Seattle weather, sometimes car accidents are unavoidable. Unfortunately, these accidents can cause minor to severe injuries. The most common type of injury sustained by car accident victims is known as whiplash. Whiplash occurs when your head is hurled towards the point of impact, and then is immediately whipped away from the point of impact. The disabling effects of auto injuries occur when the injured tissues begin to heal. Without proper treatment, these injuries can heal with scar tissue. Scar tissue is not as flexible or elastic as healthy tissue so it restricts the movement of the spine and can even lead to early onset of arthritis. Additionally, the injuries may not be soft tissue in nature, but to the facet joints of the spine. Regardless of what is injured, studies show that these injuries can lead to long-term neck or back problems. Other symptoms of auto accidents include, but are not limited to: low back pain, headaches, shoulder pain, confusion, and fatigue. Proper auto injury treatment is important for a fast and full recovery.
A common misconception with motor vehicle accidents is that vehicle damage is equivalent to injury. Even a “little” rear-end collision can cause significant soft tissue damage so it is best to get a thorough evaluation following an accident.Seattle chiropractor, Dr. Ryan Smith is trained to evaluate and treat auto accident injuries.
A common question is “Will my insurance cover the cost of treatment?” In most cases, your auto insurance will cover all treatment. Free consultations are available if you have further questions.
