Why get a Chiropractic Evaluation after a motor vehicle collision?
A common result of automobile accidents is whiplash, which is an umbrella term for injuries caused by the sudden flexion followed by extension of the neck. Whiplash also triggers sprains and strains. Chiropractic is a proven therapy for whiplash.
Sooner Is Better
It is important to get checked by a chiropractor as soon as possible after a motor vehicle accident.
— It is essential to identify all injuries before settling with insurance companies. Since the effects of whiplash are not always evident right away, a prompt chiropractic exam is crucial to avoid paying out-of-pocket for debilitating symptoms that may emerge later.
— Evidence shows that prompt care is more effective than delayed care for whiplash. In one study, 67% of patients experienced improvement in their symptoms if they received care for whiplash within three months of injury.
Back & neck injuries account for the majority of work-related injuries.
Work related injuries result in injury to a worker, both physically and financially. Everyone gains when an injured worker is safely back on the job.
It is important to receive proper chiropractic care following a work-related injury, not only to stop the pain, but also to rehabilitate the affected area. Without proper treatment and healing, it’s more likely that an injury will soon reoccur. At Danubio Chiropractic Offices, we will provide you with a thorough back and neck exam to determine the cause of injury and set you on a chiropractic treatment course.
