What Happens After an Accident

Man with neck pain after an auto accidentIf you’ve ever been involved in an auto accident, you know the discomfort that can result from a collision. According to research, even a minor or moderate accident that results in no pain directly afterward can lead to issues further down the road. At Berner Family Chiropractic, we see many people who have been involved in motor vehicle accidents and want to recover their health.

The Danger of Delaying Care

You might think you’re fine following your accident. The danger is in waiting it out. As time passes, you can feel pain weeks, months and years later. You may not even realize that it’s related to your accident because you think that you felt okay afterward. Thanks to adrenaline and shock, you don’t realize that you need medical attention.

If you don’t get the care that you need, you’ll likely experience symptoms such as

  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Neck pain
  • Numbness and tingling
  • Shoulder pain
  • Stiffness
  • Swelling
  • Tension

Within about a week of your accident, your body will also begin to produce scar tissue in the injured area. The problem is that your body isn’t necessarily laying the scar tissue down in the correct position. You can end up with adhesions and other issues that take some time to resolve. We can help make sure that your alignment is corrected and that your scar tissue is forming in the proper manner.
