What To Do After a Car Accident
...you may need the care of a Tacoma Chiropractor. Even minor car accidents can affect your health!
Emergency room doctors generally do not know the benefits of Chiropractor services after a car accident, and most doctors are not trained to diagnose spinal nerve stress. Because of this, many car accident victims leave the hospital with the same spinal nerve damage as they had when they were admitted. Many people suffer for months, years or even decades afterwards.
A car accident can really mess your back up, give you whiplash and a concussion. Thousands of pounds of force are exerted on the neck and spine in an auto accident. Whiplash occurs when the head and neck are thrown, or "snapped," back and forth very quickly (see our video on auto injuries and whiplash at our Tacoma Whiplash Center web site). The result can be a painful injury to the soft tissue, ligaments, and discs of the neck and spine. Many people who have been in a traumatic car accident don't receive chiropractic treatment. That is the reason why so many car accident victims endure repeated surgery, don’t fully recover from their injuries, and might need pain medication for years. Our Tacoma Chiropractors can help make the difference between lingering pain and disability or true recovery and healing.
Most insurance companies know the many advantages chiropractic care offers. This treatment is usually fully covered by automobile insurance policies whether you are the driver, passenger, or a pedestrian... regardless of who is at fault. Discover Life Chiropractic in Tacoma will help you with insurance paper work and your insurance company claim.
Anyone who has injuries, or even stiffness, from an automobile accident should have an examination by a skilled chiropractor. Spinal nerve damage may take months or even years to surface. A simple Chiropractic exam and treatment schedule can save a car accident victim from possible long term pain and disability.
