Common Car Accident Injuries
If you are involved in a car accident, you need to see your physician or chiropractor as soon as possible to make sure that you don’t have any underlying issues that will turn up in the days or weeks after the accident. Most importantly, you need to be checked for whiplash and concussion, as these are two of the most common injuries that result from auto accidents. If you are located in Urbana, IL, or the surrounding areas, the chiropractic professionals at Paunicka Chiropractic Clinic are ready to assist you.
Chiropractic Care After a Car Accident
According to the National Safety Council, the first six months of 2020 saw a 1% increase in deaths due to auto accidents over 2019 with a total of 18,300 deaths. During that same period over 2,085,000 people consulted medical facilities due to serious crashes. With so many accidents and with the huge number of people sustaining injuries, it is important to know what to do following an auto accident to protect yourself from undiagnosed injuries.
You do not have to exceed the stated speed to be injured in a car accident, even minor fender-benders can lead to serious injuries. Due to the shock and adrenaline that is coursing through your body after an accident, you may not feel any injuries until after the accident.
One of the most common injuries—and most overlooked injuries—is an injured neck, better known as whiplash. Aside from whiplash, several other spinal injuries may not be immediately apparent. While seatbelts do help save lives, seatbelts can also cause injuries.
