What To Do If You’ve Been Injured in a Car Accident

After a Car Accident

If you have been injured in a car accident, you might feel like you will never find relief. Injuries to your back and neck are quite common during such incidents, even if you were not going very fast. Instead of suffering and taking the risk of long term injury, let one of our experienced Doctors provide you with safe and effective treatment.

WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON AUTO ACCIDENT INJURIES?

Whiplash is the most common and occurs when your neck is suddenly rocked backward due to the impact of another car. The drastic movement causes your spine to be pushed out of alignment, leading to neck pain, blurred vision, dizziness, headaches, and reduced range of motion.

It is also possible for you to develop a herniated disc. This occurs when a disc is knocked out of alignment in the lower spine. When this happens, it often causes pressure on the sciatic nerve, leading to radiating pain through the lower back, butt, and legs. In particularly serious accidents where your body is jarred, you might experience stretched or torn ligaments.

WHY DO I NEED CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT INJURY?

The pain from some injuries can linger for weeks or months, while untreated injuries can cause long-term and permanent symptoms. That is why it is crucial to seek chiropractic care after getting into a car accident. By receiving care from our chiropractor, your injury may heal more quickly and fully. Simply taking pain medication and hoping for things to improve will not solve the problem. Chiropractic care offers an easy and non-surgical solution without the risk of dangerous side effects.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TREATMENTS FOR AN AUTO INJURY?

The doctors at Crosby Chiropractic are experienced chiropractors who are able to provide relief after even the most drastic vehicle accident injury. At our chiropractic office, we create a personalized treatment plan specific to your body using the most advanced equipment and technology, including various adjusting techniques, laser therapy, decompression, and many other services to get you to optimal health.

HOW WILL I PAY FOR A CAR ACCIDENT INJURY?

If you get into a car accident in Missouri, the driver that is at fault for the accident will have to pay for your recovery. Additionally, most individual policies also carry medical payment coverage which DOES NOT raise your insurance premium if used. In the event the at fault party has no liability coverage, then every automobile policy in Missouri is required to have Uninsured Motorist coverage which again DOES NOT raise your insurance premium if used. Our office has experienced and dedicated staff who solely work with automobile injury patients and can help navigate you through the process.
