Physical Therapy Irvine: Been in a Car Accident? Get the Right Treatment Before Your Symptoms Get Worse.
Most Irvine residents can relate to having been involved in a car accident at some point in their lives. From a minor fender bender to more serious wrecks, accidents are no fun and can cause a variety of minor to serious injuries, not to mention the financial implications that could last for many years.
Unfortunately Orange County has its share of distracted drivers, leading to a significant spike in car accidents in Irvine and surrounding communities this past year alone. While we cannot control other people’s behaviors, we can definitely drive more cautiously and defensively to avoid being in a car accident. Despite our best efforts though, accidents do happen so being prepared and having a plan in mind is key to recovering quickly and getting back to living a normal life again.
Major car accidents of course mean more serious injuries involving cuts, bruise and broken bones – something that must be addressed at the emergency room and with your primary care physician. Minor car accidents however, may not seem like a huge deal at first, with victims often walking away unscathed. Some victims may complain of a slight headache or neck pain, resorting to taking pain killers instead of really addressing the root cause of the pain.
What many may not realize is that a minor headache or neck pain is a actually a sign of a much more serious injury. Spinal injury as a result of a sudden jolt may manifest instantly, or not become evident at all for a long time. Absence of pain or bearable pain should not be underestimated and dismissed without first getting checked out by a car accident injury specialist list the Kinetic Chain Physical Therapy.
By ignoring a spinal injury, any misalignment of the spine can get worse as time passes, leading to more intense pain, chronic pain, and mobility restrictions just to name a few.
So if you have been in a car accident, please make an appointment to see our team of expert physical therapists immediately for a full assessment of the health of your spine, even if you don’t feel any discomfort whatsoever. By addressing a small issue today, we can avoid significant pain and financial strain in the future. The trick is getting treated as soon as possible without having everyday stresses make the problem worse.
