When Should I Seek Treatment?
Have you ever been in a car accident? Did you feel a sudden sense of urgency in your body, giving you the ability to quickly react to the dangers before you? Or, perhaps, you've walked away from an accident pain-free, only to wake in horrible pain the next day or so after the incident.
After an auto accident confusion, adrenaline, and the complexity of all that you need to get done can be very overwhelming. This can lead victims to not immediately feel the severity of their injuries sustained. Natural hormones are secreted throughout the body following a traumatic event. Similar reactions can occur from bungee jumping, bike stunts, or even an intense football game.
When adrenaline is released into the body blood vessels and air passages dilate, allowing the body to pass more blood to the muscles and increase oxygen levels in the lungs. This results in a boost of physical performance for short bursts of time. However, that boost can also mask the severity of injuries sustained in an auto accident. These pains can become more evident as the days and weeks go on. Leaving victims with a new set of questions about their injuries.Schedule An Appointment Locations

It is important to seek medical attention even if you don't feel discomfort right away. Your car is replaceable, but you only get one body. Long term injuries to your body should be addressed immediately. Even better, is to find a team like CHIROFIT who is equipped to handle your physical ailments, and can refer you to the best personal injury attorneys to help you through the daunting legal ramifications of an auto accident. Ignoring injuries can lead to long-term, unnecessary issues associated with your injuries.
The sooner the problems are addressed, the quicker the pains can be taken care of. Waiting may seem acceptable if you are able to go back to work and do most of your daily tasks, but just remember that other things can compound the auto injuries. This can delay the effectiveness of your care if you did not get an initial examination soon after your accident.Schedule An Appointment Locations
