Why is Chiropractic necessary after a car accident?
When involved in a MVA (motor vehicle accident) in Olympia, people either don’t follow-up with their healthcare provider because they “feel fine” or head straight to the hospital.
Problems can develop from either scenario--See Below
Whether or not you are sore and visibly injured, it is best to get checked out immediately by your Chiropractor. Many people experience health problems months later due to an underlying and progressive injury.
Olympia area car accident injuries can become tricky and create long-standing issues if left untreated. Even though you may leave the hospital and be told nothing is grossly wrong, such as dislocation, fracture, or internal bleeding, you should be properly evaluated by a Chiropractor. At VanQuaethem Family Chiropractic, our doctor will check you for muscle and ligament damage, aberrant range of motion, vertebral subluxations, somato-visceral complications, and other joint dysfunctions.
Following a MVA, underlying structural alignment and soft tissue damages may persist for long periods of time; and progressively worsen without the proper care; long-term problems may also cause secondary issues to develop. Therefore it is imperative to seek chiropractic care following any car accident, no matter how big or small it may seem. - Dr. VanQuaethem
