Experience a conservative option to recover from injury at Southcenter Chiropractic Massage and Rehab. Our chiropractors are experienced in relieving your pain, stabilizing the problem area and making sure you heal without long-term damage.
The Effects of a Motor Vehicle Accident
Your body and spine move with a great deal of force during a collision. You may get whiplash, which stretches the ligaments and tendons in the neck. Inflammation results in the joints, which ultimately leads to damage in the spinal cord and the nerves that exit the spine.
The Problem With Waiting
Often, people put off getting care for an injury. They want to wait and see if it improves, and over time, they get used to the pain. In the meantime, your body is laying down scar tissue that builds up and leads to pain and limited mobility. You can experience permanent impairment if you don’t get attention right away.
Your Initial Appointment
The paperwork for workplace injury and motor vehicle accidents is a little longer than for a typical new patient visit, as we want to get the details of how your injury occurred. We’ll give you a full examination including taking X-rays or referring you out for MRIs to determine the cause of your problems. When possible, you’ll receive treatment on your first visit.
Your care will be billed directly to your auto insurance company via the personal injury protection. If you need an attorney, we’ll be happy to refer you to one.
