I get asked often how soon after an injury one should consult with a chiropractor.
Waiting too long after an accident or injury to seek chiropractic treatment may not be wise. Due to the body’s compensatory mechanism, the original injury can cause further symptoms and other areas of the spine may begin to hurt. Generally patients who have sought treatment sooner experience better and obviously quicker results. When movement and alignment in the spine (neck and back) and extremities are resored with chiropractic adjustments, the body’s ability to heal is accelerated. The overall prognosis can be greatly improved with immediate action.
Chiropractic treatment is a very safe and effective way of reducing pain and improving function in the body.
