Every 2 minutes, someone sustains an injury on Texan roads and over 11 thousand are injured each year in Tarrant County alone.

Prompt auto injury treatment can make the difference between a full recovery and life of chronic pain.

5 Common Symptoms You Need Car Accident Treatment

While some injuries – like whiplash – produce no symptoms, it’s still important to keep a close eye on your body for a few days following an accident. See some common symptoms that may require prompt auto injury treatment.

  1. Neck pain or stiffness. 45% of people with chronic neck pain can trace the cause back to an old auto accident.
  2. Tingling or numbness in your arms, legs, or hands – these signal possible nerve damage in your neck or lower back
  3. Headaches or migraines
  4. Tension in your shoulders or upper back
  5. Confusion, poor concentration, irritability, or memory loss – signs of a traumatic brain injury.

Proactive Auto Injury Treatment in Hurst, TX

Dr. Rick Bartlett and Dr. Steven Reed Anderson have over 40 years combined experience helping Texas patients recover from all types of auto injuries. 

Your doctor will start by asking plenty of questions about your symptoms, medical history, and accident. X-rays are also important for assessing any damage to your spine and musculoskeletal system. 

However, many injuries are so microscopic that an x-ray machine cannot pick them up. That’s why prompt and proactive treatment is so important for avoiding long-term problems.

You and your doctor will then develop a personalized chiropractic program to help your spine heal from subluxations (vertebral imbalances). Beyond chiropractic adjustments, physical rehabilitation and home exercises are also crucial to reducing stiffness and supporting long-term recovery from pain.
