Even if you don’t have pain immediately after the accident – or if you think that it’s a pain you can handle – that doesn’t mean you’re free and clear.
It could be that the danger is clear, and if not present – at least leading to long term chronic pain down the road.Remember, chronic pain is any pain that you feel longer than 12 to 14 weeks. If you can’t shake it, you need to see a Chiropractor.

From legal issues to car damage, car accidents cause a lot of chaos for those involved. Such a situation can easily create a sense of panic, while the surge of adrenaline that comes from being in danger can distort your view for how to appropriately move forward after the event.
Even through the excitement of the accident, the state of your own health should always be your number one priority and concern.
The short and long-term consequences for not receiving immediate medical attention can be significant and range from chronic back pain to paralysis.
So while you may feel like you are physically fine after going through a car accident, consider the following reasons to visit a chiropractor:
Car accidents are thought to be the top cause of disability and death among teens in the United States. Statistics show that in 2005, over 1400 children ages 14 and younger died due to an automobile accident, and nearly 250,000 are injured in car accidents each year. These injuries related to automobiles can occur in a variety of ways, including traffic and non-traffic related accidents.
Children can receive injuries inside of an automobile without actually being involved in a traffic accident. Some of the most common accidents include the following:
• Trunks: When playing in the trunk area of a vehicle, children may get locked in and become unable to escape.
• Car Windows: Automobile windows may cause serious injury if they close on a child, and while most auto companies have installed safety features in order to prevent this, these accidents may still happen. In the worst case scenario, a child may choke before they are able to be rescued.
• Interlock Failure of the Brake Shift: With most cars, they cannot go into gear unless the driver is pressing on the brake pedal. However, if this device fails, injuries may result.
• Accidental Back Over. The size of children makes them difficult to see at times, and because of this poor visibility, children could be run over by a car.
The term “personal injury” often brings about images of ambulance chasing lawyers that are looking to file a law suit against an individual who harmed you. However, the term refers to any injury sustained to a person’s mind, body, or spirit, and many of these injuries occur from car accidents. Auto accident insurance provides personal injury coverage when they occur behind the wheel, but in all states, claims for personal injury can’t be made until the individual visits an emergency room, primary care physician or a chiropractor.
As previously noted, car accidents are a common cause of personal injuries. However, other personal injuries can include the following:
- Accidents at home
- Trips and falls
- Workplace accidents
- Accidents on vacation
- Accidents due to product defects
- Medical malpractice
