Why Is It So Important to Seek Chiropractic Care After an Auto Accident in North Carolina?
Obviously, we know you want to feel better, especially if you are experiencing any pain symptoms but there is another important reason you need quality medical care following a motor vehicle accident.
Even if you are not hurting, you need to get an examination and diagnosis!
never leave gaps in treatment
It is crucial for an injury claim in the state of North Carolina to be documented and supported by medical records from an authoritative accident care source.
Leaving gaps in your medical treatment can dramatically reduce the possiblity of starting a personal injury case. Many of our patients feel no pain for the first few days after their car accident, only for the pain to set in at a later date. The human body was not designed to handle the suddent impact and force that most automobile accidents can generate.
Even a low-speed crash can cause lasting damage to your neck and back. In very stressful situations, our bodies can release adrenaline, dopamine and norepinephrine to cope with the shock and trauma that may mask the pain.
If you do not get a medical exam immediately after the accident, the insurance company may argue that you injured yourself after the accident or that your injuries are not that serious because you waited to seek medical attention.
As a rule, make sure to get medical care from one of our Accident Chiropractors within 14 days of your collision.
