PLYMOUTH, Mass., March 15, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dr. Joshua Koenig of Plymouth Mass.’s Koenig Chiropractic warns those involved in auto accidents can suffer from long-term damage if their immediate symptoms are ignored. According to Dr. Koenig, damage can occur in accidents at speeds as low as 5 mph, and headaches are often an indicator of a possible, more serious issue. Ignoring headaches or other symptoms after major or minor collisions can be dangerous.
“We recommend chiropractic care immediately following any car accident, no matter how minor it seems,” says Dr. Koenig. “Experiencing headaches can mean a more serious issue is present and needs to be treated as soon as possible.”
Koenig Chiropractic is a trusted chiropractic, weight loss and massage clinic specializing in auto accident injuries and other areas. Dr. Koenig has years of experience treating these injuries. He explains there are approximately 3 million whiplash injuries every year in the U.S., with more than 45 percent leading to chronic neck pain. Auto collisions are the most common cause of these injuries.
“We often see patients who complain of headaches but don’t associate them with a recent, minor car accident,” Dr. Koenig says. “A small fender bender can cause serious issues down the road and we encourage anyone who has been involved in an accident to see a chiropractor for a screening as soon as possible.”
He recommends visiting a chiropractic clinic immediately after any accident to have a screening. Patients can expect to receive X-rays and can discuss treatment plans to ensure their spine is as healthy as possible.
