Accidents can occur when you least expect them. While many people are familiar with auto accidents and workplace accidents, there are many other types of accidents that can result in injuries. If you have experienced any type of accident and believe you may have sustained an injury, it’s important that you seek medical attention right away. At Douglas Chiropractic, we treat a wide array of injuries resulting from numerous types of accidents. Even if you do not immediately notice any pain or symptoms, it’s still a good idea to schedule a consultation with our office.
Why You Shouldn’t Delay Treatment
Many people make the mistake of thinking they are perfectly fine following an accident if they do not feel pain. This is not always the case. Pain can often be masked immediately following an accident due to a spike in adrenaline. It is only in the days or weeks following the accident that you may begin to experience pain and other symptoms. In some cases, it could be months after an accident before you begin to notice the symptoms associated with an injury. Failure to address an injury right away could result in long-term pain. This pain could have a debilitating effect on your life, preventing you from enjoying everyday activities. Over time, injuries can even cause serious issues, such as disabilities.
There is no reason for you to experience these types of limitations. Regardless of the type of accident in which you have been involved and whether you notice pain right away, it’s important that you seek treatment immediately.
At Douglas Chiropractic, we specialize in treating injuries resulting from a variety of accidents. We do this by providing an array of treatment options. The first step in the treatment process is to learn as much as possible about your accident, your lifestyle, and any symptoms you may be experiencing. This assessment plan may include performing imaging testing to gain a comprehensive idea of the extent of your injuries. We will then customize a treatment plan for your specific situation. This plan will be updated as needed.
If you have been injured in any type of accident, please contact our office right away to schedule a consultation and learn more about how we can help you to ease pain, increase your range of motion, and prevent possible future pain and limitations.
