Have You Been Injured in a Truck Accident?
If you have been involved in a truck accident due to negligence or a distracted driver, it is imperative that you act to protect your health. Unfortunately, many people involved in truck accidents make the mistake of not seeking appropriate care. Failure to do so can leave you suffering in pain.
Truck accidents can result in a wide array of potentially serious health issues. Even more concerning is the fact that many of these injuries may not appear at first but will eventually result in chronic problems. Some truck accident injuries may not produce any symptoms at first or the symptoms may appear to be mild. However, if they are left unaddressed and untreated, these symptoms may gradually worsen. When this type of injury fails to heal properly, it can cause chronic pain that remains for many years to come.
Injuries resulting from truck accidents can range from mild to severe. Such injuries can cause damage to the neck and spine. Whiplash is one of the more common injuries associated with truck accidents. This injury typically occurs when your head is forced into a rapid back-and-forth motion during an accident. You may also sustain other injuries to your body and possibly even internal injuries. Due to the fact that trucks are so much larger in size than passenger vehicles, the injuries can often be more serious than those resulting from auto accidents.
This is why it is critical that you come to Douglas Chiropractic for an exam. This exam will check your range of motion, evaluate your muscle strength, and assess the severity of your symptoms. In some instances, it may also be necessary to undergo imaging testing, including X-rays, to determine the severity of your injuries. Based on the findings from your examination, our caring staff will develop an individual chiropractic treatment plan.
At Douglas Chiropractic, we are committed to providing our patients with superior care while helping you to heal from your truck accident injuries. All adjustments are performed in order to align your spine properly while easing your pain. We may also recommend physical therapy to improve flexibility and increase muscle strength.
