WHY CONTACT A CAR ACCIDENT CHIROPRACTOR IMMEDIATELY AFTER AN ACCIDENT?
Chiropractors that specialize in car accident injuries treatment are specifically trained in detecting injuries that are a result of motor vehicle accidents, whether they are severe or mild. It is very important that you have a car accident chiropractor examine you immediately after an accident to determine if your injuries are serious and give you the treatment necessary for the proper correction of your symptoms. Many times patients are unaware of the severity of their injuries in the first few days or even weeks after the accident. Unfortunately insurance companies are notorious for denying car accident claims if the victim did not contact a chiropractor that specializes in car accident injuries treatment within the first 2 weeks following the accident.
WHAT ARE COMMON SYMPTOMS AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT?
The most common forms of injury from a car accident are neck and back injuries, which can occur in moderate forms such as whiplash and neck strain, to more serious injuries like vertebral dislocation and disc injury. Sometimes, symptoms have a delayed onset. Meaning, although you have been physically injured, you may not feel pain until a few days, or even weeks later. Common symptoms include:
Neck pain and stiffness
Shoulder and between shoulder blades pain
Numbness and tingling down arms and/or legs
Loss of concentration
Low back pain
Dizziness or balance problems
Middle back pain
Most common injuries that occur during a car accident are related to soft tissue damage. These consist of injuries to ligaments, tendons and muscles. Unfortunately these injuries are not shown on X-rays. That is why it is very important to have your accident chiropractor document them as soon as possible. Also soft tissue damage can cause a limitation of mobility or range of motion in the above areas, either due to pain or swelling.
Other symptoms of car accidents can be dizziness, blurred vision, fatigue, numbness and tingling to the arms or legs. Of course in severe cases, fractures of bones, severe lacerations and bruising can occur.
WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE ANY PAIN AFTER THE ACCIDENT?
Even if you do not experience any immediate pain after the car accident, it is important to have an examination performed by a doctor that specializes in whiplash that results from a car accident. A whiplash is a very serious injury that may not have immediate symptoms. It sometimes occurs with a very small impact. When the body is suddenly forced in a sudden flexion and extension state such as it happens during an impact from the rear, the muscles of the neck and back can experience tiny tears in them. These small tears may or may not cause symptoms of neck or back pain immediately. Unfortunately the symptoms may not appear for months or even years and the patient may not even relate their symptoms to the past accident. If left untreated, these micro tears can cause scar tissue in the injured muscles as well as cause degeneration and arthritis in the joints that they control, over time. Best Car Accident Chiropractors will check your spinal vertebrae for misalignments, the range of motion of your neck, back, shoulders and other affected areas to determine if an injury occurred. Don’t take a chance with your health. Call one of the Best Car Accident Chiropractors even if you do not have any back or neck pain.
MY MEDICAL DOCTOR GAVE ME MEDICATION? ISN’T THAT ENOUGH?
Sometimes the medications can relieve the symptoms of car accident injuries, which can be very helpful for temporary relief. An accident chiropractor will help correct the underlying structural damage such as a misaligned vertebrae and injured muscles using conservative methods. The underlying structural damage, if left uncorrected, can have long lasting effects that may not be prevented by taking the medications alone.
WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC CARE?
Chiropractic care utilizes manual manipulation of the spine to restore the normal movement and position of the spinal vertebrae. It is by far the single-most effective treatment for minimizing the long-term impact of whiplash injuries, especially when coupled with massage therapy, trigger point therapy, exercise rehabilitation and other soft tissue rehabilitation modalities.
Do ACCIDENT CHIROPRACTOR DOCTORS ACCEPT ACCIDENT LAWYER LIENS?
Yes, all of the accident chiropractors listed on this website agree to accept accident cases on a lien. Of course, that can be determined for each individual case at the time of the first visit.
HOW LONG DOES A CAR ACCIDENT TREATMENT TAKE?
Each case is very different. A Best Car Accident Chiropractor will determine the length of your treatment depending on the injuries you incurred as a result of your accident. Most of the time, your chiropractor will suggest a more frequent schedule in the first four to six weeks following the car accident and tapering it off as your accident symptoms improve.
WHAT IF I NEED TO TAKE TIME OFF WORK AFTER THE ACCIDENT?
A Best Car accident Chiropractor can recommend time off work after performing the initial accident examination. Factors such as work duties and severity of injuries will determine the amount of time that your accident chiropractor can recommend for time off from work. Your chiropractor may also recommend that you will avoid physical activities such as walking, running and exercising following an accident.
