Lever & Ecker, PLLC August 18, 2021 Car Accidents
Car accidents can lead to various injuries, many of which involve the neck, back, and spinal cord. The treatment for such injuries will depend upon the circumstances, the severity of the injuries, and what methods will provide the victim with the best chance to recover. About 22 million Americans seek chiropractic care to recover from a neck, back, or spinal cord injury.
Not all injuries are evident at the scene of the accident. It is not unusual for a car accident victim to experience pain or injury days or even weeks after the accident. One of the critical factors in a personal injury car accident action is the time between your accident and treatment for your injuries. Get a free consultation from Lever & Ecker, PLLC, to advise you of the best legal options for your case.
Car accidents are a leading cause of neck and back injuries. The neck is a particularly vulnerable part of the body as it is unrestrained at the time of impact in a crash. On impact, your neck will be jerked back and forth and side to side, causing serious injury to bones, muscles, joints, and nerves in the cervical spinal column and surrounding areas. Neck and back injuries from a car accident can cover a wide spectrum.
Seeing a chiropractic professional after you’ve been injured in a car accident might be the best option for neck or back damage. Left untreated, these types of injuries can cause chronic pain and long-term complications. Some of the many benefits of chiropractic care include:
Many people are worried about becoming dependent or addicted to the drugs they are given. Chiropractic care can get to the bottom of what is causing your discomfort and provide effective relief from pain with no need for prescribed drugs.
Inflammation is a common side-effect of being involved in a car accident. The force on your body can cause lots of micro-tears in the ligaments and muscles. Chiropractic manipulations can help your body release an anti-inflammatory chemical that reduces internal swelling and pain and promotes healing.
Inflammation and pain cause the loss of mobility in your back and neck (and elsewhere) after a car accident. You may find it challenging to move normally, and it may be impossible for you to participate in some activities. A chiropractor may help reduce inflammation and speed up the healing process, which will enable you to regain mobility much sooner.
Certainly, speak with your doctor to determine the best treatment options for you.
If you were injured in a car crash due to another’s negligence, you deserve any and every treatment your body needs to make a full recovery. In these situations, you have the right to pursue compensation by filing a lawsuit regarding your car accident. Instead of trying to take on the auto insurance companies yourself, put yourself in the hands of an experienced and highly capable New York car accident lawyer.
