Auto Accident Injury

Auto-Accident-injury

Why seek chiropractic/medical treatment?

Seeking quick and appropriate chiropractic and medical treatment is one of the most vital steps for your personal well being after being involved in an auto accident. If you are feeling unusual discomfort, have any open wounds, are pregnant, or have small children in the car seek medical attention immediately, either by presenting yourself to the ER or calling for an ambulance. However, even if you are not feeling immediate discomfort you should still check in with a chiropractic physician. The potential health issues that stem from car accident can sometimes take weeks to manifest into recognizable pain, by which time you may not even associate your injury with the crash.

How is treatment paid for?

If you are fortunate enough to have MedPay on your auto insurance policy there is no need to question your medical bills; all of your chiropractic treatments with the Head Neck and Spine Center will be completely covered. However, if you have not yet applied for Med Pay understanding how auto insurance, medical insurance, and 3rd party payments can work into your medical bills can be a confusing and daunting task. However, here at the Head Neck and Spine Center we not only take auto accident cases on lien (there are no bills until treatment is finished), but we also have a well organized network of attorneys, specialty doctors, and other practitioners who do the same. We can organize your treatment in a way that all payments are executed by an attorney who has your best interests in mind, and little or no financial obligation rests with you.

Symptoms:

The symptoms that can crop up from a car accident can range from mild to serious; the severity of injury can be high even in a minor accident. The list below encompasses a full scope of crash-related injuries; you do not need to feel more than one to seek treatment:

  • Neck pain
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Upper back pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Muscle weakness
  • Stiffness
  • Reduced range of motion
  • Low back pain
  • Numbness
  • Tingling in extremities
  • Jaw pain

Treatment and Recovery

Since the range of injury is so great for an auto accident, so is the treatment. Therapies can range from simple chiropractic adjustments to surgery. Here at the Head Neck and Spine Center we have a family of doctors who are experts in diagnosing and treating accident-related injuries. Our office offers many easy and natural treatments, such as spinal adjustments, heat therapy, deep tissue massage, ultrasound and electrostim therapies, acupuncture and physical therapy. If our office cannot offer you the type of treatment your injuries require we have a vast network of orthopedic doctors, pain management specialists, and other medical professionals available for preferential referrals. If you have been in an auto related accident within the last two months and are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above please call our office for a FREE consultation!
