A 2014 study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimated that pain and decreased quality of life from auto accidents in the United States cost about $594 billion per year. Your Pensacola Chiropractor treats many patients who have suffered car and auto accident injury and has learned some of the best treatment for car and auto accident injury he can provide is to help educate patients to prevent these injuries from happening in the first place! Here is a link for another article written by Your Pensacola Chiropractor that also gives advice on how to help decrease injuries sustained in car accidents. Now let’s look at some of the ways everyone reading this article can help Gilmore Chiropractic treat injuries from car and auto accidents.
There are several obvious scenarios everyone should be aware of that lead to car and auto accidents which include breaking traffic laws. During examinations on patients who have been hurt in an auto or car accident it is very common for me to hear that one of the drivers involved in the accident either ran a red light or ran a stop sign. Your Pensacola Chiropractor has never been treating a patient who ran a light or stop sign that I believe actually did so on purpose. There is usually another factor involved that had the person distracted, which prevented them from seeing the stop sign or noticing that the light had turned red.
Can you guess yet how you are going to help treat injuries from these auto and car accidents? You are going to keep the distractions to a minimum while you are driving. Everyone should know not to text while driving as the danger associated with this is well documented. But are you aware of how distracted you become during some phone calls even when using legal hands-free phone devices? What about when you play with the radio or navigation system? Have you considered the distractions caused while trying to eat and drive?
I hope you will help Gilmore Chiropractic in providing the best treatment possible for car and auto accident injury. Make it a point to eliminate distractions to yourself while driving and encourage your friends and family to do the same. Spread this message of how to prevent these injuries before they ever occur.
