You can rest assured you will have everything you need to ensure your case is handled properly.

What to Expect After the Accident

It’s important to have a health assessment done after a motor vehicle accident. In many instances, symptoms can take up to a week to appear. Even mild symptoms can be evidence of underlying problems that need to be addressed. That’s where chiropractic care comes in.

In a high-speed vehicle collision, unnatural forces impact your body. Thrown into hyperflexion and hyperextension (whiplash), the ligaments stabilizing your cervical and/or lumbar vertebrae are strained. The trauma from the initial insult can have serious consequences.

You might feel fine at first, but when problems are not addressed early, they can become a chronic issue. At the very least, your recovery time may be extended as a result. Chiropractic care can prevent long-term or even lifelong pain and dysfunction.

The effects from scar tissue formed as a result of the trauma can be alleviated through manual manipulation treatments. Seeking treatment immediately can prevent loss of range of motion and headaches. Without treatment, we have seen advanced arthritic changes and degenerative changes as a consequence of dysfunction.

Any untreated trauma can have long-term consequences. Once an injured part of your body goes untreated, function is compromised. Other areas have to step in and compensate for that lack of function. Eventually, function will be lost in that area as well, forcing yet another area to compensate, and so on…

Dr. Terry advises his patients to seek all the care they need to get better after an accident. This includes x-rays and MRIs. He will recommend other providers to help you heal as needed. On average, it takes anywhere from 3-6 months for a full recovery.
