Bellevue Personal Injury Chiropractor: Lasting effects from an auto accident injury
Insurance statistics show that even one year after an accident (like an auto accident) that 90% of the injured still have pain. Many people involved in an auto accident in Bellevue or some other personal injury will experience pain as a result of the accident. When involved in any car accident, sports injury, or work-related injury, one should definitely consult our Bellevue personal injury chiropractor to ensure there is no long-lasting damage and help start the healing process.
Negative Affects After a PI Injury in Bellevue
Tears in the ligaments can occur after a motor vehicle accident and this can lead to scar tissue. The body, in an effort to patch up the tear in a ligament from something like an auto accident whiplash incident, will create scar tissue around the injured area.
Scar tissue is weaker than other body tissues. It is less elastic (stretchy) than other body tissue and it has more pain nerve fibers - it's more painful. Once a patient gets a lot of scar tissue from recurring accidents he/she will have more and more pain - latent pain on a daily basis. The pain becomes chronic.
Without treatment one gets restrictive range of motion, fibrosis, pain and more.

At our Bellevue chiropractic office, I keep in touch with patients and when I hear of a small accident, a slip and fall or some whiplash incident, I call them in to schedule an appointment to get the injury/pain checked out to ensure there is no long-lasting scar tissue and damage.
Here's a snippet of a video I did awhile ago talking about accidents (personal injury, auto accidents, work-related accidents and more) and their lasting effects.
