We can restore your musculoskeletal system with state-of-the-art chiropractic care. We have gathered a few of the questions that we run into regarding our treatments for auto accident injuries.
How Do I Know if I Have Whiplash?
Whiplash is the most common injury that is suffered in a car accident. This injury occurs when the head and neck are violently thrust in one direction and then suddenly in another. Sometimes, the symptoms of whiplash are not noticeable at first. There are some common symptoms of whiplash including neck inflammation, severe pain, tingling in your arms, and constant headaches. It is reassuring to know that with proper treatment, your pain levels can be reduced and often eliminated , returning you to preaccident state. Even low-impact car accidents can result in whiplash, so it is wise to see a chiropractor for a full-body examination after an accident.
Is It True There Is No Cost to Me to Get Treatment?
If you are not at fault for the auto accident, the other party will be held responsible for your medical fees. We deal with insurance companies often and we believe you should not have to wait to receive pain relief. Dr. Butler, D.C. will provide treatment for your injuries and wait for the insurance company to pay the medical bills. Janny will answer your questions about insurance companies and point you in the right direction with attorney needs or having an insurance agent help you.
What Can I Expect During a Chiropractic Care Session?
Even if you are not experiencing discomfort immediately after the car accident, you might have still sustained a deep tissue injury. It is smart to schedule an appointment at our chiropractor's office. Our chiropractor will thoroughly examine your body to determine the extent of your auto injuries. We will ask if you are experiencing pain, discomfort, or any issues with your mobility. We will perform a thorough examination to include a cranial nerve assessment, muscle strength, range of motion and complete spinal assessment. This information will help our chiropractor create a treatment plan that is customized to provide pain relief and encourage the recovery process.
