Car accidents happen everyday and some are worse than others. If you have been in an accident, you have probably felt the effects later on.

News 25's Emily West brings us tonight's Simple Savings tips from a Peoria chiropractors' office.

Dr. Robert Zinser with Zinser and Bruns Chiropractic said, "Many times people are in low impact crashes and have injuries. The first thing you do, which is wise, is got to the hospital get x-rays and get checked out. Usually the doctors will come back in a good, favorable situation and say there's no broken bones, there's no pathologies, here is something for the pain. If it persists go see your doctor or physician. Many times there's a continuation of medication. If you delay this, and delay this and delay this, in the long term, the costs magnify by examinations that didn't yield anything. Many times, this is a case for a chiropractor especially if the conditions persist after the crash."

Dr. Michael Bruns added, "This time of year, people are getting out in the yard. They're getting active, maybe they've had aches and pains over the winter. Now is a good time to get those aches and pains checked out by a chiropractor and to make sure they get corrected so they don't lose time at work or have costly expenses for treatment."
