Advice After A Car Wreck In Amarillo From An Amarillo Chiropractor
Chiropractor in Amarillo, TX, Dr. Jeff Williams, tells about your first steps after a car wreck
When we are referring to car wrecks and the forces a person suffers as a result of car wrecks, the first thing it is important to understand is this: anytime you go from one speed to another in a millisecond, there will be consequences.
Now, what exactly does that mean? You can go from one speed to another in a millisecond in different ways. One way would be driving and then hitting some other object.
Usually, it is a vehicle but can be a tree or some other object that causes your car to go from one speed to another in a millisecond.
Another way could be sitting still in a car, such as sitting at a stoplight and getting rear-ended from behind. Another example of going from one speed to another in a millisecond.
It’s also important to understand that it doesn’t have to take a high-speed impact to do damage in a car wreck.
Damage can happen in a low-speed car wreck as well. Research shows us that a person can suffer soft tissue damage at a car wreck speed as low as 5 miles per hour. If you have seen it happen in slow motion, it’s easy to understand.
Damage can be more simple microtears but can also be as severe as concussion, broken bones, and worse.
If needed, it makes sense to visit the emergency room after certain car wrecks but, then what? And what if it wasn’t quite serious enough if a car wreck to go to the emergency room?
Typically, in a low-speed car wreck, if you go to the emergency room, you will likely be exposed to “the big three.” The big three are painkillers, anti-inflammatories, and muscle relaxers.
Recent research tells us that most in America are not interested in medication so there is great value in finding ways to help people get out of pain quickly without using pharmaceuticals.
On top of that, if a car wreck victim has micro-tears, they can run the risk of building up scar tissue.
For this reason, whether a visit to the emergency room was originally warranted or not, it is important to engage in an exercise/rehab protocol in an attempt to minimize scar tissue build up.
