How Chiropractic Care Can Help After a Car Accident

In the aftermath of a high-velocity car accident, your car wasn't the only thing that took a hit. Your body did too. Imagine this: you're hurling down a bowling alley at breakneck speed, your body is the ball, and somewhere out there is an invisible set of pins. You crash, and. your body is jolting, bouncing, twisting - then sudden stillness. Now picture the resulting chaos inside your body, not unlike the scattered pins and crushed bowling ball left behind at the alley.

How Defensive Driving Can Prevent Car Accidents

Defensive driving can reduce your risk of a car accident

Learning to drive defensively can reduce your chances of getting in accidents.

Car accidents are dangerous and happen often. In fact, you are bound to pass an accident just while driving down the highway. Statistics show nearly 37,000 people die each year in car accidents. 

While car accident injuries are not pleasant to think about, they are preventable in certain situations.

Prevention is the most important step to take to guarantee the safety of you, your passengers, and other drivers on the road.

But it's still easy to assume that just because you are a cautious and careful driver, the other drivers around you on the road will be also.

Assuming that the other drivers will stay in their lane, safely react to road hazards, or wait to safely pull out onto a major roadway can often be a dangerous mistake.

Other drivers on the road are often distracted, rushed, or just drive aggressively for no good reason. Looking ahead and keeping your eyes moving can help you anticipate the actions of other drivers and stay safe.

With a focused mind and a little precaution, the following tips can keep you and others safer while driving on the road.

Why do Accidents Happen in Slow Motion?

Key Takeaways:

  1. Perception of Time in Crises: The sensation of time slowing down during a car accident is a psychological effect that enhances the ability to react in the moment, increasing the chances of making safer decisions during a crisis.
  2. Neurological Basis for Time Dilation: This phenomenon, rooted in our evolutionary biology, involves heightened cognitive processing that allows more detailed perception and memory encoding in high-stress situations, making events appear to last longer than they actually do.
  3. Seek Professional Care: After experiencing a car accident, immediate medical assessment and treatment are crucial. Arrowhead Clinic offers expert chiropractic care and legal referral services to aid in recovery and ensure appropriate compensation.
