Most people involved in car accidents walk away feeling fine and therfore do not consider getting treatment for any potential underlying injuries. Dr. Scott advises anyone who has experiences an auto injury accident to come in for an evaluation regardless of whether or not they were the driver or passenger.
Most of the impact from an auto accident is done to the spinal column which often times will not present any immediate noticeable symptoms. Conditions like whiplash typically take hours if not weeks to manifest symptoms.
Often times people will experience pain in their back, shoulders, and neck after an auto accident. Dr. Scott's top priority is to address any pain and identify the root cause so his patients can start their road to recovery.
Dr. Scott may recommend chiropractic adjustments, cryotherapy, heat therapy, spinal decompressions, stretches, and massage therapy.
