Have you been in a car accident recently? Have you thought about why you should see a chiropractor? The chances of being hurt or killed in an auto accident are increasing dramatically, likely due to distracted driving. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), not only did fatalities increase by 7.2% in 2015, “The estimated number of people injured on the nation’s roads increased in 2015, rising from 2.34 to 2.44 million injured people.”
Do you know what help to seek in the event that you do have an accident? It is important to have a plan in case this has happened to you or does happen in the future. Of course if the accident is serious, victims should always seek care at a hospital or with a medical professional. Even if the accident doesn’t appear to be bad and you don’t have any pain or obvious injury right after the accident, one of the first things you should do is see a chiropractor.
