If you have been in an auto accident it is important to see a medical professional. Even if you feel that you are completely unharmed there are still injuries that you may have sustained. It is possible that these injuries may not show immediate symptoms but will become apparent months or even years after the accident. After an auto accident you should be checked out by a chiropractor because they understand soft tissue and soft tissue injuries.
Symptoms and injuries that can present themselves after auto accidents include:
- Neck pain and/or stiffness
- Muscle stiffness
- Lower back pain and/or stiffness
- Numbness and tingling
- Shoulder pain and pain between the shoulders
- Pain in the arms or legs
- Foot and hand pain
- Pain in the jaw or face
- Sleeping difficulties
- Ringing in the ears
- Blurred vision
These symptoms and injuries are not always readily apparent so you really should get checked out. Minnesota is a No-Fault state which means that every auto insurance policy has Personal Injury Protection no matter who is at fault for an auto accident. It means that everyone has coverage to have their injuries treated by a medical professional of their choosing. Insurance is going to cover you when you seek treatment after an auto accident and it’s YOUR health, so why wouldn’t you be thorough? Chiropractors are specialists in soft tissue diagnosis and treatment and soft tissue injuries are very common in auto accidents. So if you have been in an auto accident and are experiencing any of the symptoms or conditions listed, even if you aren’t currently experiencing any symptoms or conditions, do your body a favor and get checked out by a chiropractor.
