Are Distracted Drivers on the Rise?

There are many reasons as to why drivers may be distracted. Unfortunately, distracted driving is on the rise. In fact, more drivers now more than ever are finding themselves distracted behind the wheel due to being on their cell phones. When distracted driving takes place, it commonly leads to an accident. An accident often leads to injury, but fortunately, chiropractic care can be of immense value for those who have been involved in an accident. For now, let's take a closer look at the benefits of receiving chiropractic care after an accident. 

Causes of Accidents

From putting on mascara to applying lipstick, these tasks may seem quite simple, but they can be a huge distraction if you are the driver of a car. And did you know that according to the National Safety Council there are more than 1.5 million accidents each year caused by cell phone-related distracted driving? Whether you are trying to dial a number or send a text, using a cell phone while driving is a major distraction that is completely preventable. If you are going to use a cell phone and you're the driver, you should pull over to the side of the road. Another common cause of car accidents is radio and climate control-related distracted driving. This is why it is so important to take advantage of control buttons on the steering wheel; this allows you to control the radio and climate buttons without having to take your hands off the wheel. 

Treating Car Accident Injuries with Chiropractic Care

There are many injuries that are commonly caused by car accidents, including a herniated disc, whiplash and spinal damage. Fortunately, all of these injuries can be treated by a chiropractor. With chiropractic care used for the treatment of car accident injuries, you can enjoy reduced inflammation, avoid long-term pain, reduce scar tissue, improve your odds of making a full recovery, and much more.
