If you’ve been the victim of an auto injury
, you know what it is like dealing with the pain and discomfort you feel within the first couple of days after the crash. You feel the tension and strain of a stiff neck, probably have a headache
, and suffer from overall body aches and pains that serve as a not so gentle reminder of the car accident each time you move.
However, as painful as it can be after the impact of a car wreck, your problems can (and most likely will) compound when your injuries aren’t properly treated immediately. And since car accidents are the number one cause of spinal injuries, that makes getting prompt and efficient care from your Depew chiropractor a priority!
Possible Future Side Effects
While you may think that your pain will just go away on their own, here is a list of just some of the things that you can be forced to deal with five, ten, fifteen or more years down the road if you’ve been involved in an auto accident and obtained a spinal injury that goes untreated:
- Loss of feeling, numbness or tingling in your extremities
- Bladder and/or bowel issues
- Trouble regulating your blood pressure
- Inability to control body temperature
- Fertility issues (more so for men)
- Increased risk of respiratory problems
Don’t wait until you get to the point where you need surgery or, worse yet, aren’t able to correct the issue at all. Be proactive with your auto injuries and make an appointment with Dr. Palmer, your trusted Depew chiropractor, to protect your long-term health and wellness.
