Car Accident Tips from a Blanchester Chiropractor

Auto Injury

Car accidents are an unfortunate part of life that many of us have to experience, and while the vast majority are not serious, they can still cause lasting effects. Back pain, neck pain and shoulder pain can linger and transform into chronic conditions that last for years. Follow these car accident tips from a Blanchester chiropractor to minimize the effects.

Prevention Is the Best Medicine

Naturally, avoiding car accidents altogether is the best way to ensure you remain injury-free. Not all car accidents can be avoided, but you can take measures to reduce the likelihood. These days, avoiding the distraction of cell phones is probably the most practical piece of advice. Put it down and leave it out of sight while you’re driving, keeping both hands on the wheel.

It’s also a bad idea to drive when you are tired, upset or angry. Experiencing strong emotions or struggling to stay awake while operating a motor vehicle is only asking for trouble. If you live in an area that sees a wide range of weather, drive according to the conditions and stay a few miles below the speed limit when possible. Take the time to keep your brakes and tires in good working order.

A Healthy Body Heals Faster

Keeping your body in good physical condition is another car accident tip from that’s worth following. If you maintain a good fitness level, and your body is strong and flexible, you’ll have a much easier time recovering from most car accidents. That’s not to say you should anticipate being in a car accident, but along with its many other benefits, a healthy body will also help in this department. Any type of regular exercise that helps strengthen your muscles and improves flexibility is great.

Get Checked Out Quickly

Whether you are in great shape, poor shape, or somewhere in between, it’s important to get your injuries checked out as soon as possible after a car accident. If you wait, scar tissue can become a permanent part of your muscles and tendons, reducing your range of motion and causing pain. If you don’t feel that your injuries warrant a trip to the emergency room, at least book and appointment with our Blanchester chiropractic team at Total Health Chiropractic Center to ensure you don’t have injuries that may turn into chronic conditions in the future.
