Many people have to experience the unlucky and unfair event of a car accident in Renton WA. Each accident varies in severity but even the non-serious ones can have long-term effects on the individuals involved. Pain in the back, neck, and shoulders can become chronic over the years if not treated. The following tips for car accident patients are brought to you by Hughes Chiropractic and Massage in order to help reduce the effects of the accident.


As obvious as it sounds, not getting into an accident is the best way to prevent an auto injury. Keeping cell phones out of the hands of the driver is one of the best methods. This is an easy task if you keep both hands on the wheel, another important factor to safe driving.

Driving while upset, angry, or tired is also a poor idea. It is not as easy to operate a car or truck while undergoing strong emotions or fighting to stay awake. Some areas are more susceptible to inclement weather and a driver must focus on driving correctly in the present road conditions.

Speeding is also a common cause of accidents and therefore it is important to focus on staying at or below the speed limit. This can be paired with the idea that you should leave space for the car in front of you and allow yourself time to brake if an issue arises. Upgraded brakes and tires are also important to safe travel on the roads.


Another important aspect of protecting your body from a car accident is having a physically healthy body. The better shape you keep your body in, the less likely you are to get injured in a car accident. In addition, the recovery time for a healthy body is quicker and more efficient.

A healthy body is also helpful in many other aspects of life. Exercises that are able to help build muscle and increase your flexibility are important and can be very beneficial for many different types of situations.


Regardless if you are in perfect condition or bad condition, if you have a serious injury or a minor injury, it is essential that you get it checked out as soon as you can. Waiting introduces the possibility of scar tissue permanently becoming a part of your muscles and reducing your range of motion causing more pain down the road. If you feel your injury does not require an emergency room, our Renton WA chiropractor and the team at Hughes Chiropractic and Massage are educated and prepared to provide you with the proper care to ensure your injuries will not affect you in the future.

Here at Hughes Chiropractic and Massage we are always available to help answer your questions. Please feel free to call today!
