Auto Accident Frequently Asked Questions
Are my car accident injuries covered by insurance?
Most accidents are 100% covered, which means no out of pocket expenses.
Do injuries present themselves right away?
No, injuries from car accidents do not always manifest themselves quickly. It may take days or weeks before you experience symptoms. If left untreated, injuries may cause long-term chronic pain. Don’t wait for symptoms to arise.
Should I wait to heal naturally before seeking treatment?
This is usually not a good idea. People who get prompt care after an accident are more likely to make a full recovery and heal faster.
What if it was only a fender bender?
Even minor crashes can cause serious injury to your body. Consult with your chiropractor if you’re experiencing even slight pain.
How does chiropractic care help car accident injuries?
Chiropractic care removes the underlying causes of your pain without the use of drugs or expensive surgeries. We can help relieve your aches and pains and restore mobility through spinal adjustments, corrective exercises, and stretches. Results are often long lasting and help you become less dependent on medication.
Why not just take pain medication for my injury?
Pain medication is the traditional treatment of pain. Although pain medication can provide short-term relief, it isn’t suited as a long-term solution to chronic pain. Pain medication often masks the real problem and doesn’t get to the cause of your symptoms. And no prescription medication can help you regain mobility.
