Car accidents are the leading cause of death among young people ages 15-29 and nearly 1.3 million people die in road crashes around the world each year. This means that there are, on average, 3,287 deaths a day from car crashes alone. That is a terrifying statistic if you ask me. What is even more concerning is that this is only talking about deaths. It is estimated that a further 20-50 million are injured or disabled every single year. This means that your chances of being in a car accident are extremely high throughout your entire life. Even if you aren’t driving, you are still at risk for one. As an example, I was in three before I was of a legal age to drive.
Car accidents can be severely disabling, both physically and mentally. You often hear of people who were in severe accidents being afraid to get back in a car or back behind the wheel. It isn’t hard to understand why, either, when you see some of the pictures of what was left of some of these cars. While we cannot help too much with the psychological aspect of the crash, here at DiBella Chiropractic we certainly will do all we can to help your body recover after an accident.
These accidents can absolutely ravage someone’s body depending on the severity of the impact. You never truly know the extent of the injuries until you are either seen by a doctor or you start to live with the difference. This may be an impact to your ability to work or continue a hobby that you love as well. While a hospital trip is going to be your best bet immediately, you may end up having to go through years of physical therapy and other treatments in order to get back to how you were, if that’s at all possible.
Here at DiBella Chiropractic, we understand just how devastating a car crash can be. We see it all the time and are dedicated to making sure that your transition through healing is as painless and quick as possible.
