Of those who are injured, over 4,500 individual motorcyclists die due to the impact of their collision or accident. Compared to other passenger vehicles, the chances of a motorcyclist getting killed in an accident are 30 times higher than those who drive traditional passenger vehicles. And, with over 8.5 million individual riders throughout the country, it’s extremely important to understand:

  • Why/how motorcycle accidents take place or occur.
  • What steps can be taken to avoid a collision or an accident.
  • What you should do in the event that you lose control over your motorcycle or are involved in some type of collision.

After A Motorcycle Accident Takes Place in Jonesboro

If you should ever find yourself involved in a motorcycle accident around Jonesboro, the first thing you should do is call 911 or emergency support. The likelihood of sustaining some type of deep-rooted internal injury is extremely high considering the lack of protective equipment associated with motorcycles. Once you have seen a physician that specializes in emergency medicine, the second thing you should do is contact our office to schedule an ongoing Chiropractic examination.
The reason for this is that only through ongoing Chiropractic treatment are you able to completely restore your body’s ability to function correctly, while also returning to your normal range of motion. Broken bones, strains, and sprains can all leave parts of or your entire body immobilized if left untreated or if stress is allowed to build up around your bones, tendons, and ligaments over time.
That’s why it’s important to receive regular adjustments, which can remove this built up stress, restore mobility to your joints/ligaments, and prevent long-term or permanent damage from taking place.
The first action for anyone who has been involved in a motorcycle accident is to call the Chiropractor. At AICA Jonesboro’s Injury Center, our board-certified Chiropractors can quickly diagnose your injuries, treat your pain, prescribe the proper medication and walk you down the path to full recovery. With many certified doctors on staff, we offer same-week scheduling, consultation, and x-ray as well as transportation if necessary.

Some injuries crop up weeks or even months after the collision and can begin to affect daily activities.
Make sure you don’t delay your accident evaluation as many of these problems are detected before they even fully develop, preventing the pain before it happens. Our Jonesboro Chiropractors are trained to find the risk factors and beginning stages of subluxation and bone alignment problems.
