Being in an auto accident is frustrating on many levels, especially if you’re injured. Too often, people think they’re fine, not realizing that some symptoms may take time to fully reveal themselves.
Even if you were hit at a low speed or the accident seems minor, don’t wait to get checked out by your chiropractor. And if you’re immediately feeling injured and sore, that’s even more of a reason to get examined now.
Waiting is not an option and can make things worse, because just as your car may have hidden damage, the same can be said about your body. At Beeson Wellness Center in Portland, Oregon, we do a full evaluation, including x-rays, an ultrasound, and whatever else is needed to make sure everything is clearly documented, and we’ll immediately begin your recovery process.
Our team of Dr. Daniel Beeson, DC, Dr. Bri Beeson, DC, Dr. Charles Goldberg, MD, and Dr. Shawn Soszka, ND, LaC work together to get you healed as quickly and thoroughly as possible.
Car accident injuries
There are many different injuries and ailments that can arise after a car accident. Whiplash is one of them, and a car accident is the most common cause. The whipping motion that happens when getting hit, especially when rear-ended, can severely injure the head and neck, including discs, muscles, ligaments, nerves, and joints. The repercussions are quite serious and can affect other parts of the body as well.
Other injuries that can result from a car accident include:
- Rib or other fracture
- Herniated disc
- Low back pain
- Upper back pain
- Arm or leg pain
- Soft tissue damage
- Spinal subluxation (misaligned vertebrae)
- Shoulder dislocation
- Pain or numbness in shoulders, arms or hands
