Auto Accident Injury Treatment in Chicago
A car accident is an incredibly stressful experience and you shouldn’t neglect your health after being involved in an accident. You may not have noticeable injuries, but neck and back pain is very common after a car accident.
If you’ve had a recent collision, consider seeing a chiropractor to treat persistent aches and pains. We can provide you with a consultation, examination, and treatment program to help you feel better.
Why should you see a chiropractor after a car accident in Chicago?
Car accidents are one of the most common causes of neck and spine misalignment. If your vertebrae are misaligned from the trauma of a collision, it can affect your circulation and nervous health.
Whiplash can also occur after a car accident if the impact caused the neck and head to jerk and jerk from side to side. This can cause pain and immobility in the neck and back, and can lead to headaches and other problems.
Chiropractic is a great treatment for these problems. Neck and back manipulations can restore spinal alignment and relieve pain caused by nerve or joint problems. Treatment is fast, safe, and easy, and many patients feel the benefits right away. Your Accident Chiropractor in Chicago may recommend other treatments that will help as well, such as massage therapy, physical therapy, or home remedies.
It is also important to consult a healthcare professional after an accident for insurance purposes. If you were injured during the accident, your insurance company will help you recover for the damages. You will need documentation from a medical professional proving your injuries, so visiting a chiropractor or other healthcare provider will help you and your insurance company go through the settlement process.
Pain does not always appear immediately after a collision. Even if you feel fine immediately after the accident, you should see a professional within two to three days to make sure there are no problems. This will ensure that an injury is taken care of before it worsens and increases your chances of being reimbursed by insurance for health care costs.
What to Expect
Your appointment with the chiropractor will begin with an examination and an overview of what happened during the accident. Your chiropractor will want to know how your body reacted during the collision and if you feel any pain or discomfort. Then, your neck and back will be tested to see if your joints, nerves, and muscles are working properly.
If necessary, your chiropractor will create a treatment program to address any alignment issues you may have suffered during the accident. If necessary, they may refer you to other specialists and provide documentation to send to your insurance company.
