Accidents happen and when they do, it's best to get treatment a soon as possible. Research shows us that the quicker treatment is applied the less likely the patient will have worsening symptoms and long term damage.
Most personal injuries are soft tissue in nature are best treated by a doctor who specializes in the musculoskeletal system (muscle tendons, ligaments, and bone). Chiropractors are the only doctors who specialize in the musculoskeletal system. Physical therapists also specialize in the musculoskeletal system but are not doctors and they also do not specialize in the spine, as chiropractors do.
In 2015, the American Medical Association and the FDA requested that physicians send soft tissue injuries to chiropractors and physical therapists. Why, because it works and because chiropractors and physical therapists can help injuries heal faster. They are quickly able to identify the problem and come up with the correct solution, rather than band-aiding. In fact, the positive to all of this is that this has helped reduce the opioid epidemic.
