Car Accident Injury
What happens during and after a car accident can be traumatic, and can affect the body and the mind. Directly after a car accident, you may not even realize you are injured. Your adrenaline is pumping, you are in fight or flight mode, and you don’t feel too much pain.
You may only feel a little tension in your neck, shoulders, or back. But ignoring even minor symptoms after a car accident can have long lasting effects. Using Acupuncture after a car accident can shorten recovery times, reduce pain, and get you back to doing the things you love much more quickly.
People often do not realize that even low impact accidents can cause pain. Often when people are in
low speed accidents (10mph or less), they will not experience symptoms for 1-2 days. They do still need
to be treated however. It is always recommended that you go to urgent care or the ER after an accident,
and then begin getting Acupuncture and chiropractic immediately.
