Millions of people are injured in car accidents annually. Many of these accidents can result in long term disability and injury. Even if you experience little to no pain following a motor vehicle collision, seeking chiropractic care can help prevent years of chronic pain and suffering.
Most occupants get injured in motor vehicle crashes simply because of the force that’s applied to their body in a very short moment in time. Even though some injuries may not be evident with a naked eye, seeking an experienced doctor, like Dr. Levi, is a must after a motor vehicle collision.
Even though some injuries won’t present themselves right away, the key is to catch symptoms early to avoid any long term pain and discomfort.
The symptoms most commonly associated with car accidents are:
- Blurred vision
- Ringing in the ears, tinnitus
- Loss of balance
- Neck pain with associated stiffness, numbness, pain and tingling, which may radiate to the shoulders, arms and hands.
- Shoulder pain
- Back and low back pain, radiating to the buttocks, thighs, and legs (sciatica).
- Knee pain
- Ankle pain
