In Greensboro, whenever an accident occurs, many people rush to assess the damage done to their car and personal items, while neglecting the one thing they should be most worried about-- their body.
As chiropractors with nearly 40 years of experience serving patients in Greensboro, North Carolina, and the surrounding Piedmont Triad area, we know just how serious of a mistake this can be-- both for the long and short term.
After an accident-- even one with no serious injuries-- it’s vital that you see a chiropractor to ensure that your body is not suffering from injuries you can’t see. At the scene of an auto accident, first responders will usually attend to the individual that seems to be in the most obvious duress, and, for many people, not seeing an issue leads to the natural assumption that there’s no issue to be found.
Unfortunately, this simply isn’t the case. By visiting a local, Greensboro-based chiropractor soon after a car accident, you can avoid the serious long-term damage that a quick hospital checkup may not catch. Simply put, a chiropractor is trained to catch the little things that others may miss after a car accident-- and just one visit can make a world of difference.
Seeing a Greensboro chiropractor after an accident with injuries
If you’ve ever had the misfortune of being involved in a car accident with injuries, then you’re well aware of the time and effort it can take the body to heal itself and return to normal working condition. With the help of regular visits to a local chiropractor, however, this time can be significantly reduced-- which means a quicker return to the things you love to do. Chiropractors specialize in the musculoskeletal system, which makes an experienced chiropractor a must have for proper care after a serious car accident. In conjunction with routine visits to your doctor, a routine treatment plan that can be created with your Greensboro chiropractor in a manner of minutes can be an excellent way to get your body back into great physical shape quickly and safely.
Seeing a Greensboro chiropractor after an accident with no apparent injuries
For those that are able to walk away from an auto accident unscathed, a visit to the chiropractor should still be in order to make sure that the body is in good working condition-- and that it didn’t suffer an injury that missed the hospital’s initial scans. Based in Greensboro, North Carolina, Cobb Chiropractic specializes in holistic treatment procedures that engage the whole body to root out any side effects of the accident that could lead to potential problems like back or neck pain.
Many accident victims brush off pains from their accident early on-- but doing so often leads to severe and often irreversible issues much later down the road. In our experience, nearly everyone that suffers a serious car accident endures some measure of neck or back pain, even if otherwise unhurt. Taking just a few hours out of your day to allow a chiropractor to examine you can be the key to nipping a potential problem in the bud early on.
Seeing a chiropractor after suffering shock in an accident
Injury or not, a chiropractor can help ease a body into good working condition with a treatment plan that engages trouble areas. It’s the bread and butter of what a chiropractor does. But shortly after an auto accident specifically, there are a number of additional issues that can arise that a chiropractor is also well-equipped to handle. One of those issues is shock.
In short, shock occurs when the body’s response to serious trauma is delayed-- which is why, in many cases, shock can be life threatening. Fortunately, symptoms of shock can be treated by emergency medical teams without much issue, and a chiropractor can assist in helping a shock patient make a full recovery by providing an in-depth examination of the body after the patient’s condition has stabilized. One of the reasons a chiropractor can be so beneficial for victims of shock is because the chiropractor’s examination has the capacity to catch issues that may have been missed in dealing with major trauma. Additionally, by not prescribing addictive medicines to mask issues caused by the accident, shock victims recovering from accidents have the opportunity to heal both naturally and completely.
