Everett streets are a very busy place. Personally out of our front window at Advacned Chiropractic in Everett Wa, I see frequent car accidents. Here is some helpful tips if you have been in a car accident.
1. Call the police. Might seem like a no brainer, but many people do not do this. If you were rear ended, you want a police report. Even if there is minimal damage.
2. Take a picture with your phone of your car AND THE OTHER CAR. If you were rear ended and have whiplash you will probably have a lot less damage to your car than the other car, but you will have a lot more neck and back pain than the person that hit you. Also take a pictue of the area you are in.
3. If you feel you were injured and may have whiplash, see a Chiropractor very soon after the accident. The longer you wait the longer it will take to get better.
4. If you are not literally broken or have a severe disc injury (you will know this after you visit a doctor, chiropractor included here) keep up with your normal activites of daily living and that included some form of exercise.
This is a very short list of hints. If you feel you may have been injured in a rear end whiplash type injury here are some symptoms you may have. Headaches, neck pain, upper back pain, low back pain and shoulder pain. It would be an honor to look after you after your accidnet. Give us a call today at 425.353.7246
