Why You Should See a Chiropractor for Auto Accident Injuries
Big or small, get seen after an auto accident. Statistics show that injuries can manifest up to months later, setting you up for chronic pain for years if you wait to get treated. The best thing you can do is get seen quickly.
Dr. Larry Goldfarb of Spine and Rehabilitation in Cedar Knolls wants you to come in as soon as possible to get a full exam no matter how small the accident. Dr. Goldfarb is seen among his peers as the leader for his innovative and steadfast approach to the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and incorporating natural medicine into his treatment process.
Car Accident Injuries Can Start off Invisible
Car accidents are a stressful adrenaline rush that triggers fight-or-flight mode. Feeling pain is secondary to survival. This survival reaction delays the onset of pain.
Some Auto Injury Statistics
- 2mph generates enough force to give you whiplash.
- 15-40% of people will suffer from ongoing chronic pain.
- Two-thirds of motor vehicle accidents result in whiplash.
- Whiplash symptoms take up to 48 hours to develop.
- Data shows that 45-85% of whiplash victims can still be suffering five years later, most of them due to the spine losing its correct curvature.
Pain or no pain, resist the urge to grow complacent. Get yourself 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. We also want to evaluate you for the presence of whiplash injury or a concussion, two injuries that can lead to major, long-term health issues.
