Motor Vehicle Accidents and Injuries
When you are involved in a motor vehicle accident, the body is moved instantly and forcefully into many different directions. This may sometimes cause injuries or damage to the ligaments, tendons, and muscles. Symptoms may appear immediately or years later but it is vital to get examined by a chiropractor that is properly trained to diagnosis and come up with a treatment plan.
Our chiropractors have extensive training and knowledge on how to properly diagnose and treat injuries caused by motor vehicle accidents. If the patient thinks they are unharmed and they do not receive treatment right away, they could miss the designated timeline that the insurance company will pay to cover expenses. Therefore, by the time they start experience the symptoms, some of the damage may have become permanent, and the patient could have to pay out of pocket.
If you have been in any motor vehicle accident, don’t assume you are unharmed. Call us today so that we can guide you with what to do next and help get you the help you need.

Leaving the patient to cover his/her medical bills.
What if I went to the hospital/ urgent care and they said I wasn’t hurt?
Hospitals and urgent care centers excel at trauma and emergency care, i.e. broken bones, cuts, and heart attacks but unfortunately are not the best in chronic injuries. These facilities will most of the time do x-rays and a quick exam to rule out life threatening injuries and then prescribe a pain medication. This is a temporary fix for the pain, but it will not heal injuries acquired from the accident which can become chronic later in life if not properly treated. We are properly trained to diagnose and treat injuries that occur when you are in an auto accident.
What If I don’t have pain?
Some people may not experience any pain after the accident until many weeks, months, or even years down the road. A majority of the time, the muscles and tendons are damaged and can cause instability of the bones in the spine. If there are tears in the muscles it can cause mobility issues after healing, which will cause the bones to deteriorate quicker than normal.
