Pain after a car, truck or semi-truck accident is a good indicator that you have been injured. It is important to go first to the emergency room to rule out any chance of severe or life-threatening injuries. If the doctors at the hospital clear you of any serious or life-threatening injuries, but you are still experiencing pain then seeing a chiropractor should be your next step. Even if you are experiencing no pain, it is still a good idea to be evaluated by a chiropractor after a car, truck, or semi-truck accident.
What is a chiropractor?
A chiropractor is a licensed and board-certified health care professional that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of the musculoskeletal system (muscles, bones, ligaments, joints, tendons, and other connective tissue), with an emphasis on treatment with the use of special chiropractic instruments or their hands to manipulate or adjust the spine and other joints in the body.
What is a chiropractic adjustment?
At P.I. HELP Injury Clinics- The Auto Accident Chiropractors in San Antonio, TX and Salt Lake City (Murray), UT a chiropractic adjustment can significantly contribute to decreasing or alleviating muscle pain, neck pain, back pain, headaches, joint pain, and numbness or tingling after a car, truck, or semi-truck accident. A chiropractic adjustment is a tool-assisted or manual manipulation to a joint and/ or spine that has abnormal movement patterns or fails to function normally which in turn helps to ease the body of pain. During an adjustment, you may feel or hear a popping or cracking sensation or nothing at all. Chiropractors can perform adjustments to the neck, head, back, jaw, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, ankles, knees, and pelvis. Chiropractic adjustments generally do not hurt but patients may experience some side effects like soreness similar to what someone might feel like after working out at the gym or a headache. Many patients experience almost immediate relief or decreased symptoms after a chiropractic adjustment. Our chiropractors take a thorough past and current medical history and screen all patients to make sure that they are good candidates for chiropractic adjustments.
