Elkin, North Carolina is a wonderful place to live and a generally safe place to drive. People are kind and respectful in our area, committed to taking care of their neighbors. Nevertheless, whether you’re Elkin or elsewhere, vehicle accidents are something most people experience at some point while they are driving. Unfortunately for many, lingering back, neck, and joint pain can cause significant discomfort even years after an accident occurs. If you live in the Elkin and Jonesville area and have experienced a car crash, even a minor fender bender, it is important to be examined and treated by your chiropractor.
Even relatively minor accidents can cause our bodies to suffer pain and discomfort. Immediately following an accident, you have so much on your mind you may not realize your body hurts. The next day your body begins to ache, but there is still so much to do it is easy to push through the pain and discomfort, thinking you will deal with it later.
At Beth EL Wellness in Elkin, we recommend always visiting your chiropractor after an automobile accident, for several reasons, including:
- The potential for X-Rays
- Correcting misalignment before the pain and problems worsen
- Identifying issues of which you were not yet aware
- Reducing inflammation

- Relief from headaches and whiplash
