Chiropractic Care for Delaware Auto Accident Victims
Are you a Delaware resident who has recently been involved in an auto accident? If so, we can help! On an average, there are more than 6 million car accidents each year in the U.S. More than 3 million people get injured due to car accidents, with more than 1.5 million of these injuries being permanent.
Injuries resulting from car accident often go undiagnosed and untreated. Often times the pain and other symptoms of the injury are not immediately experienced at the time of the accident. These hidden injuries may be missed by emergency room physicians, and may take weeks, months or possibly years before expressing themselves.
At first drivers and passengers may feel a little stiff but appear to be uninjured. But it is not uncommon for car accident injuries to go hidden for months or even years. When people do begin to have pain, they may feel it in their back and neck and the pain may be accompanied by headaches and tension.
These symptoms may get worse over a period of time and eventually completely debilitate a person, preventing him or her from performing their normal daily activities. Many people suffer from these symptoms without realizing that their injuries resulted from their seemingly small car accident.
Many people go on without getting properly diagnosed, using painkillers to mask the pain and wearing braces to temporarily reduce the pain. Those people would do well to visit a chiropractic doctor. These doctors specialize in soft tissue as well as structural damage and are well acquainted with car accident injuries.
If you have been involved in a car accident, we encourage you to contact our office immediately for a comprehensive chiropractic exam with Dr. Cozamanis. Most people are surprised at how misaligned their necks and joints can really get from simple car accidents. Chiropractic care is a safe and natural way to effectively treat the pain and tension resulting from whiplash and other car related injuries.
After performing a thorough exam on you, Dr. Cozamanis can gently adjust your neck and back and place it back into proper alignment. Most patients report immediate relief after just one chiropractic adjustment. In addition to adjustments, Dr. Cozamanis may also use a combination of electric muscle stimulation, ultrasound, spinal traction, and stretching and strengthening exercises to speed up your recovery. Rather than merely treat the symptoms of your condition (i.e. pain, stiffness, headaches, sciatica, etc…), we treat the actual cause of the problem.
Chiropractic care is great for injuries resulting from auto accidents because it is safe, natural and non-invasive. All joint alignments are done with the hands. Most of Dr. Cozamanis chiropractic patients describe their appointments as relaxing and look forward to their next treatment.
It is wise to see a chiropractor immediately after a car accident to insure that you don’t have any hidden injuries that will severely affect your life later. Don’t wait. In most cases, insurance companies will cover the cost of seeing a chiropractor in DE if you have been injured in a car accident.
