If you have been involved in any type of automobile accident, motorcycle accident, or similar such accident, the pain may occur immediately, or you may not notice the pain for a day or more (delayed onset). Neck pain is the most common symptom from a car accident, due the the whip like motion of your body in most accidents. Low back pain usually takes second place, followed by headaches, symptoms of a pinched nerve, shoulder pain, knee pain, and so on.Injuries such as laceration or broken bones are easily noticed and should be treated by a medical physician. Other types of injuries may go unnoticed, and lurk below the surface of your pain threshold. Delayed onset symptoms may occur in a day, a week, a month, or longer. When accidents occur, it usually means that insurance companies are involved and there will be time limitations placed upon you to file a claim for both the damage to your vehicle and the care you require for the injuries you incurred.

Many people want to know how soon after an accident should they seek treatment from a chiropractor. Some are concerned that manipulation of the neck would be dangerous after an accident. We understand the hesitation by some to undergo forceful adjustments when the neck is very painful to the touch or irritated by simple movement, and there are procedures for alleviating any discomfort. Accident victims and new chiropractic patients alike can be rest assured that comprehensive research on both the efficacy of chiropractic treatment and the safety have both come out very positive in favor of early intervention. What is more concerning are the potential long-term ramifications of not engaging in the appropriate treatment at the earliest time possible following an injury. most automotive accidents involve very forceful whipping type actions of the spine and body, at such speeds that our ligaments and muscles are not able to accommodate. Spinal bones are likely to be moved out of their normal and healthy positions, and though they are not dislocated, they are likely one step less than dislocated, they are subluxated.
