In late February, three people were left injured in Maryland after being involved in a high-speed T-bone car accident. It took rescue responders, the fire department, and the police department to respond to the scene and secure the area after the serious accident occurred. EMS had to take two patients to the hospital and one patient, a 61-year-old, needed a MEDEVAC so that they could safely and quickly get the care they needed.
The reports from the accident state that one of the vehicles (a police SUV), came to a full and complete stop before making a left turn. During this left turn, an oncoming vehicle struck the police SUV. While accidents like this can often lead to severe and even life-threatening injuries, it seems that everyone involved in the accident will only have minor injuries. This type of accident reinforces the idea that following traffic laws and being aware of your surroundings is crucial. Even in circumstances where you are fully obeying the law and being mindful of your surroundings, it is still possible for another driver who is being negligent or paying less attention to injure you. While those involved in the accident only walked away with minor injuries, it is still important to get treatment and medical assessments completed following an accident like this.
Getting Help From A Chiropractor For Your Car Accident Injuries
Side-impact collisions (another name for T-Bone accidents) can often leave the victim with severe injuries. They are devastating because the passengers of the vehicle are often not as protected as they would be if the accident had occurred from another angle. If you were recently involved in a car accident like a T-bone accident, you may find that you get relief for your pain by visiting a Catonsville, MD chiropractor. Injuries such as whiplash, muscle stiffness, herniated discs, pinched nerves, and soft tissue strains can all be helped by a chiropractor.
While different patients will have different injuries and recovery times depending on the details of the accident, you may find that chiropractic care from Mid Atlantic Spinal Rehab & Chiropractic can give you the relief you are looking for. While you may need certain injuries taken care of by a medical doctor who can help to reset bones or perform surgery following a major accident, your chiropractor can assess injuries that may leave long-term damage and have a lasting impact on your daily life. It is also possible to use minimal pain medication or even avoid using pain medication altogether during the healing process when you go to a chiropractor for adjustments. A chiropractor can not only help you feel better following the accident but they can help strengthen your muscles and reset your spinal column so that your brain can better communicate with the rest of your body.
When you are suffering from injuries after a car accident, don’t feel that your only options are surgery and painkillers. Instead, reach out to your chiropractor to see how they can help you heal from this situation.
