Car Accident Injuries Q & A
What are common car accident injuries? Car accident injuries are as varied as the accidents themselves and depend on many factors, such as speed, what part of the car was hit, and whether you were wearing your seatbelt or not. Common car accident injuries include:
- Sprains and strains
- Cuts and bruises
- Head injuries
- Chest contusions
Some car accident injuries require emergency medical care. However, if you were in a minor accident, you may not even realize you have an injury until hours later when you start to experience muscle aches, dizziness, headaches, or pain in your shoulders, neck, back, arms, legs, or joints. Pain is not something you should ignore and may worsen over time.
What can I expect during a car accident injury evaluation?
You can expect a comprehensive evaluation when you come in to see the health and healing experts at Kingdom Chiropractic & Spa for management of your car accident injuries.
During the evaluation, your provider asks detailed questions about the accident and your symptoms, as well as your medical history, medication and supplement use, and usual activities. They also conduct a physical exam to assess your general health and evaluate the areas of your body that are causing your pain.
Based on the information gathered during your exam, you receive a customized treatment plan, which combines medical treatments and wellness therapies to heal your injuries, alleviate your pain, and optimize your overall health and well-being.
