Chiropractors have been deemed essential workers during the coronavirus pandemic, however, you may be wondering which types of injuries you should seek treatment for right now. We encourage all Axcess Accident Center patients to contact us right away with any questions or concerns. All of our locations are open and we are available for TeleMed appointments. We are here to support you during the COVID-19 shutdown, so don’t feel that you are alone.
We advise scheduling an appointment for treatment if you are experiencing any severe or persistent pain or if you have been in any type of car accident. Most importantly, if you are experiencing any symptoms that may be related to COVID-19, you should stay home and limit your contact with others. We have outlined the precautions and steps that we are taking during the coronavirus shutdown on our blog here.
Key Areas We Can Help
Severe chronic pain such as sciatica or numbness anywhere in the body are indications you may need treatment now. These ailments need a hands-on adjustment we can provide. Check-in with your chiropractor immediately if your condition has come on suddenly or has worsened. WebMD has outlined some scenarios for when to seek chronic treatment.
Headaches can be a common side-effect of increased stress. As the coronavirus pandemic and economic shutdown persist, you may begin to experience headaches. Additionally, headaches can come after you have been in a car accident and can be a sign of a concussion or whiplash. You can learn more about the different types of headaches here. If you have a headache from a car accident then we encourage you to seek treatment immediately. Delaying treatment can limit your ability to make a full recovery, and your symptoms can increase over time.
Any kind of back pain can severely impact your quality of life, especially if the pain lasts longer than a few days. If you are experiencing pain that hinders your ability to walk or maintain other normal day-to-day activities, we suggest you seek chiropractic treatment immediately.

Pain or Injury as a Result of a Car Accident
If you have recently been in a car accident, contact the Axcess Accident Center near you immediately. During the coronavirus shutdown, it is advised that we all stay home unless we have essential business to conduct. However, if you experienced a car accident before the shutdown or happen to be in an accident during this time, seek treatment right away so that you can be evaluated by a chiropractor. A chiropractic adjustment will help you resolve any pain or problems you may be experiencing as well as prevent any long-term injury.
