Coronavirus Pandemic Increase Speeders
May 05, 2020

The coronavirus pandemic, with mandatory business closures, work-from-home options, and stay-at-home orders, has changed traffic around the country. With less traffic, particularly during rush hour, cities and states have noted more incidents of speeding among those who are still out and about. For example, in New York City, though the traffic has greatly lessened, speeds recorded during the morning and evening commutes are 50 to 60 percent higher. The same study showed similar increases in speeding across the country, east, west, north, and south, in major metropolitan areas. With increased speeds come increased chances of car accidents and injuries.

Medical Attention is Crucial Following an Accident

County Line Chiropractic Care - Car Accidents

After a car accident, serious or not, visiting a Chiropractor or Doctor is crucial. Whether you feel pain immediately following a vehicle accident or not, you should still see your chiropractor or doctor for a complete evaluation. In most cases, serious injuries aren’t apparent at the scene of the accident, so getting an exam can be important for your future health and wellness. If your accident was caused as a result of speeding by another driver, a medical professional’s record of your injuries and treatment can also ensure the needed coverage after the accident.

Injuries are Common in Car Accidents

When you are involved in a car accident, injuries, alongside vehicle damages, are the result. Every accident includes the potential for serious injury. The speed at which the vehicles involved were traveling, as well as the use of seatbelts, are important factors in the extent of the injuries incurred.  Among the most common injuries is whiplash, in which the neck is sprained or strained. Other injuries common in vehicle accidents include lacerations, bruises, sprains, strains, soft tissue injuries, and more.

Get the Care You Need

Even when you don’t feel as though you need to seek medical attention, you should visit a Doctor of Chiropractic following a car accident as injuries are not always visible or apparent. For fractures, concussions, and lacerations, a trip to the emergency room is in order, but for whiplash, musculoskeletal problems, or soft tissue injuries, a visit to the Chiropractor is advised.  Chiropractors specialize in treating these types of injuries and are often cheaper than hospitals.

During your visit, the Chiropractor will offer a consultation, exam and report of findings, and then work with you on a customized care plan to reduce you pain and restore you to full health in the shortest amount of time medically needed. Chiropractors offer treatments that are designed to realign the body naturally and include adjustments, along with massage, physical therapy, and other non-invasive therapies. Seeing a chiropractor soon after the accident is the key to your recovery if you are injured. It may even be the key to your case as well.
