With any accident, a little amount of neck or back pain can have a huge impact on your body. Oftentimes, we meet people who had a car accident over a year ago and their pain had gradually gotten worse over time. We don’t want this for you. This is why immediate intervention of the right treatment is crucial for preventing long term ailments.
If you or a loved on has been in a car accident, read our top 3 reasons why it’s important to seek immediate medical attention and why chiropractic care is right for you.
1. Early Intervention Matters
Early intervention with evidence-based conservative care show more significant results than waiting to receive care. We have patients coming in every week that have injuries from a car accident that only got worse, or became a major disability for them. We want everyone to know pain is not something we have to get used to living with. Thankfully, our treatments can still reduce symptoms and restore function. However, in worse cases, surgery may be necessary.
We want to avoid surgery or the usage of medications if at all possible. Our holistic approach to medicine proves to be more effective and long-lasting for our patients. This is why we urge our patients to come to us first so we can assess the injuries and provide a plan to return to living pain-free.
2. Choosing The Right Care
When looking for the right treatment, we are devoted to referencing the research. This is the reason we do what we do. Research has shown that rehabilitative exercises and soft tissue treatment supplemented with spinal manipulation prevent car accident victims from having long term pain and disabilities. In fact, rehabilitative exercises and soft tissue modalities prove more effective than the average advice of resting or waiting for the pain to go away.
The graph below shows the recommended treatment modalities for anyone involved in a car accident with back pain. These treatments include spinal manipulation and rehabilitative exercises for showing the best results.
3. You’re Covered
In most, if not all, car accident cases we find that people have car insurance. It is important to file a claim with your car insurance immediately following the accident. This will ensure you get the maximum benefits and care for both your car and your body. We help all of our patients verify their coverage to ensure minimal financial hassle and maximum pain-relief. Our teams works out the details so you don’t have to.
