Summer is a popular time for vacations and road trips. However, an increase in traffic also means an increase in road accidents leading to injury and pain. Follow these tips to stay safe during your trip and visit a chiropractor for a prompt evaluation if you experience any auto-related injuries.
The majority of auto accidents are related to human error, so it’s essential to stay alert while driving. Never text or operate a GPS unit while driving; hand them over to a passenger or pull off the road if you need to use these items during transit. Avoid taking phone calls and eating while driving when possible to keep your hands on the wheel. During your trip, enlist your spouse to handle children’s complaints rather than trying to pacify children and drive at the same time.
Wear Your Seatbelt
Seatbelts are the easiest way to prevent major injuries during an accident. Always wear your seatbelt as indicated—never slip the shoulder strap under your arm or behind your back. Check that all passengers are buckled in before turning on your car. Small children require child safety seats to ensure safety, as standard seatbelts may not fit them correctly.
Get Injuries Checked
Even collisions that occur at speeds of less than two and a half miles per hour can cause serious neck injury and pain, particularly whiplash. If you are involved in any type of accident, visit a chiropractor for an evaluation as soon as possible. He will be able to identify injuries you may not yet be aware of yourself, as well as develop a non-invasive and effective treatment plan to minimize and eliminate pain.

There are two major types of pain: acute pain and chronic pain. Depending upon your condition, a chiropractor may recommend different methods of treatment.
Acute pain is new, short-lived pain that lasts 3-6 weeks depending on if swelling or discoloration is present in the injured area. This pain most often results from an injury or trauma and can be cured in a short period of time with treatments. In contrast, chronic pain lingers for weeks, months, or years. It may be caused by an ongoing illness or appear after an acute injury was not properly treated. You can learn more about these types of pain and how your chiropractor can help in this short video.

Warmer weather encourages outdoor activities, including popular sports such as tennis, baseball, and running. However, playing too hard before your body is ready can result in sports-related injuries and pain. Talk to your chiropractor before you play to help you prepare for the game and prevent injuries that could keep you sidelined.
Take Time to Warm Up

Taking the time to build up stamina and strength with ensure you can play your best without incurring injury on the field.
