How soon after an automobile accident should I seek chiropractic care?

It is recommended that you seek chiropractic care as soon as possible after an automobile accident, ideally within a few days. Even if you don't feel any immediate pain or discomfort, it's important to get evaluated by a chiropractor because some injuries may not show up right away.

However, coverage can vary depending on your specific policy and the state in which you live. It's a good idea to check with your insurance provider to find out what your policy covers.

What should I do if I experience pain or discomfort after my chiropractic appointment?

It's not uncommon to experience some soreness or discomfort after a chiropractic adjustment, but this should subside within a day or two. If you experience any unusual or severe pain after your appointment, contact your chiropractor right away to discuss your symptoms and determine if further treatment is needed.
