Being in a car accident is a very difficult situation on a number of levels. Your pain is sometimes secondary to the aftermath of having your car at the mechanic, the stress of dealing with your insurance company and/or lawyers, and potentially missing work.
While you are in a hurry to get your car fixed and back to normal activities, make sure to see your chiropractor before you make any major decisions.A car accident is a major event and the trauma that comes from them could be significant. The impact and physics of a car accident (even at low level impacts) can create significant soft-tissue injury and biomechanical changes that may not not seem to worrisome now, but may cause you more problems down the road.
Chiropractors are specialists in neuro-musculo-skeletal (soft-tissue) injuries, including those that result from the trauma from a car accident.
