Chiropractic Treatment For Car Injuries
One of the most unfortunate things about a car accident isn’t the repair of the car itself, but the injuries sustained to the individuals involved. Whether it was your fault or not, you might find yourself in a position where you are in some kind of severe pain. Even if you don’t feel any kind of discomfort right away, some injuries go undetected for months before they appear! Here’s a short list of the most common auto accident injuries that people experience:
- Unusual levels of fatigue
- Soft tissue pain
- Muscle stiffness
If you find yourself in this kind of situation, you should see a chiropractor right away! Not only can they help you treat any immediate pain, but their comprehensive neurological and orthopedic tests will help detect ‘hidden’ injuries. They are able to do this due to their extensive training in the biomechanics of the body and their experience with treating automobile related injuries.
Following your visit, you will receive a personalized recovery plan that will help you return to a pain-free life. It is not uncommon to have nutritional advice and exercise regimes included in these plans. Most doctors would normally look at immediate pain, assess you for any life-threatening injuries or broken bones, and send you on your way with a bunch of pain medications that don’t really resolve the underlying issues!
To maximize the benefit that you will receive from chiropractic treatment and protect yourself from financial disaster, it is highly recommended that you schedule your visit within no more than two weeks following the incident. Most insurance companies will not cover any health-related expenses that exist outside of the immediate time period of the accident. Failure to seek medical treatment and inform the insurance company until after the case is settled will result in a loss of the coverage that you are entitled to.
