Motor Vehicle Crashes by Algonquin Chiropractic CenterInjuries from motor vehicle crashes can be extremely painful and can become chronic (lasting more than 3 months). Millions of people are injured every year and thousands become temporarily or permanently disabled as well as thousands of lost days from work. What should I do after an accident?

1. Go to a doctor or to the emergency department right after the police have arrived and finished their investigation of the auto accident, even if you feel that your injuries are slight or non-existent. Why? Frequently, people do not feel pain immediately after an automobile wreck, though they are stiff and in pain the next day. Pain sometimes takes several days or even weeks before the pain appears. A doctor will be able to document your injuries and help you get the treatment that you need.

2. Use ice packs or cold compresses to control pain and inflammation.

3. Stay active within your pain tolerance, avoid prolonged periods of driving or sitting. Walking, treadmill and stationary bike are great ways in increase blood flow and avoid atrophy while not aggravating the injury.

4. Topical analgesics can be helpful.

5. Targeted anti-inflammatory diet and nutrition can help control inflammation and pain.

6. Manipulation and soft tissue techniques are often necessary to heal damaged soft tissue and restore proper joint function.
