Retired Denver Broncos Lineman Urges Auto Accident Victims to See a Chiropractor
Yes, even a small one. Not all injuries manifest immediately. It’s important to play it safe and get evaluated so they don’t turn into larger problems in the future. Belleview Spine and Wellness’s Dr. Gibson, a former Denver Broncos lineman, knows what it’s like to get banged up. It’s critical to play it safe and get evaluated.
Car Accident Injuries Can Sneak Up On You
Just like an athlete can keep playing without realizing they’re hurt, people in an auto accident have extra adrenaline coursing through them after nasty contact. This survival reaction delays the onset of pain.
Even if you don’t feel pain, it’s still advisable to get checked out. It can take months for injuries to manifest. We can give you red flags to look for and our documentation is critical should you need to take legal action.
The two most common injuries that surprise car accident victims are whiplash and concussion. Even minor whiplash can lead to pinched nerves or a shoulder injury. And as far as concussions go, studies show that even one minor concussion can lead to long-term problems, including chronic headaches, memory problems, and vertigo.
Besides documentation, chiropractors have the added benefit of caring for you without having to resort to prescription drugs or surgery. Instead of masking the symptoms, we get to the cause. A car accident throws your body out of whack; you most likely need an adjustment to restore physiological balance so something like a little limp doesn’t turn into a hip or knee replacement.
You’ve got to be proactive, not reactive, when it comes to what you do after a car accident.
