What Happens After my Car Accident?

After a car accident, there are a hundred questions that can race through your mind. How will the car get repaired?  Who do I need to call? Am I going to miss work? What about the police? There are even more important questions to ask:

Am I injured?  Will this pain go away on it’s own?

The only way that you’re going have your head clear enough to answer these questions is to first make sure that your health isn’t compromised by your accident. It is difficult to make clear decisions when you are in pain. What’s worse is that some types of pain may not appear for a few days after the accident. Some people may have mild pain after an accident that becomes worse after a month or two.  By this point it may be too late to file a claim if they hadn’t file one prior.

It’s important to take care of yourself after an accident. A quick way to get back on your feet is to see a chiropractor. Chiropractors are very skilled at repairing spine and neck injuries. Their years of training help them to assess whether or not they can fix a problem or whether it should be referred to a hospital. The insurance companies also accept the diagnosis of a licensed chiropractor in their assessments.

Chiropractic treatments can remove a large amount of pain quickly without painkillers. Painkillers can often make it very difficult to make clear decisions. Can you imagine trying to negotiate with an insurance agent while on strong medications? It’s a funny image, unless you’ve found yourself in that situation.

Getting a chiropractic adjustment soon after your accident may help prevent you from losing range of motion as well. If you need to reach, bend, or twist as part of your job you know how important it is to be able to use your entire body. The longer you wait after an accident the more severe these losses can be, and typically, the longer they take to resolve.

Amid all the other problems after an accident, don’t neglect your own well-being. Call our offices today at 910-484-2001 to schedule an appointment.
