Early Treatment for Auto Injuries

Dr. Banc in Stamford, CT has been taking care of people with auto accident related pains since 1992, and knows the importance of early assessment.

After a car crash, it's typical for people to delay getting treatment. Most people think, "I'll just wait to see how I feel next week." But avoiding treatment can become a costly mistake.

A number of clinical studies have found that when a patient gets prompt treatment after a wreck, they have a better outcome than those people who wait to get help.

During a crash, the structures of your neck can be stretched or torn. You might not feel discomfort right away. But as the tissues become swollen and inflamed, patients often get up the next day tender and with a stiff neck.

Soreness and stiffness are signs of trauma to the ligaments and muscles of your neck. The body's response to injury is to limit activity and to heal the damage by sending white blood cells to the area. Your body will then begin mending the injured area by laying down scar tissue.

The problem with scar tissue is that each segment in your spine has a fairly limited range of motion. Scar tissue reduces that motion even more, and if you don't receive proper treatment, that can result in permanently limited range of motion, long-term pain, and even spinal deterioration of the joints.

Receiving early chiropractic care will break up this pattern by enhancing movement in the injured region and by preventing the formation of scar tissue.

If you've been in a wreck, it's imperative that you consult a health care professional right away to be checked out and to begin the process of recovery.
