Semi-trucks often weight between 30,000 to 80,000 pounds, making them extremely threatening in the event of an accident.
Colliding into or being struck by a semi-truck can be a stressful and frightening experience without even considering the physical damage.
Because of the volume of semi-trucks that exist throughout the greater Lithia Springs region, tens of thousands of people are hurt by 18-wheelers each year.
Fortunately, the Chiropractors at AICA Lithia Springs are specifically trained to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal conditions that often develop as a result of a semi-truck accident.
If you get into an accident with an 18-wheeler while driving through the community, contact the Chiropractors at Lithia Springs for immediate pain relief and treatment.
The majority of all semi-truck accidents are caused by human error. Whether someone is distracted by their smartphone device, loses control because they are driving under the influence, or are inexperienced at operating a vehicle, most accidents that take place are avoidable.
Because of the demands that are placed on many truck drivers, approximately one-third of all accidents are caused by the driver dozing off or falling asleep at the wheel.
Of course, mechanical issues, poor weather conditions, and unexpected debris are also responsible for a particular portion of accidents that take place each year.
The concerns and risks associated with semi-truck accidents are greater than other types of vehicle collisions because of the size of most commercial trucks.
The chance of sustaining a serious or critical injury as a result of a semi-truck accident are high based on the weight and speed of the colliding 18-wheeler.
Although variables like seatbelt use and speed influence the extent of any accident, most victims sustain injuries that relate to dislocations, tissue damage, nerve damage, or something more threatening.
Spinal damage and head trauma are both serious conditions that require immediate Chiropractic treatment. Even if you can walk away from your accident without any noticeable symptoms, it does not mean that your health is completely intact.
Even in the absence of symptoms like headaches, bruises, or stiffness, chronic conditions may still be lurking underneath the surface. To verify the existence of a particular condition or injury, it’s imperative to seek Chiropractic treatment in Lithia Springs as soon as possible.
This is the only way to diagnose and treat an injury without exposing yourself to further damage over time.
