Being in a car accident is a very difficult situation on several levels. Your pain is complicated by the stress and expenses of having your car at the mechanic, dealing with your insurance or potentially missing work.
While you may be in a hurry to get your car back and return to normal activities, make sure to see a chiropractor. Many make the mistake of ignoring seemingly minor stiffness or aches and pains,, only ot regret it later on. There could be hidden injuries that a minor stiff neck misleads you from discovering.
Car accident forces even in a minor fender bender can be significant enough to cause muscle, ligament, nerve or muscle damage. Symptoms can appear weeks or months down the road in terms of headaches, neck and back pain or muscle imbalances. If injuries - even minor ones - are not reported soon you may loose important insurance rights or coverage on top of suffering lingering health problems. Insurance coverage or health complications can usually be avoided when dealt with early on.
