AZ Chiropractic Gilbert, AZ has an emphasis on treating motor vehicle injuries. If you have been involved in an accident, give us a call today! Studies have shown that the longer you postpone care, the longer your treatment may need to be.
You may not even realize you have suffered an injury, especially if the accident was a minor one. You might think you would feel immediate pain after a car accident, but that is not always the case. Think about it this way: Have you ever done yard work and felt fine when you finished, but hours later, even the next day, you were very sore? Your body may not present immediate symptoms, but muscle and joint injuries can be delayed, which is why you should meet with our medical team to give you a thorough medical exam.
How can AZ Chiropractic Gilbert, AZ help?
Chiropractic care is often safer and less invasive than traditional medical treatments. Chiropractors work to diagnose, treat, and prevent disorders of your neuromusculoskeletal system using 100% natural care. At AZ Chiropractic, we also practice massage therapy and Physical Medicine Modalities and Therapeutic Procedures as a means to relieve the pain and discomfort our patients experience. Although our doctors are well schooled in traditional medicine, our practices are geared more towards using less invasive treatments that will produce long-term results for each individual.
Medicine is not the only answer for the pain you may have after a car accident. You might not even want to seek medical treatment in case you are prescribed medicine that won’t allow you to function properly. When you come to AZ Chiropractic after a car accident, a joint adjustment may be just as beneficial, if not more so, than taking a pill for your pain. Not only that, but chiropractic care is safe for individuals of all ages and even pregnant women.
Injury symptoms after a car accident
Chiropractic care is ideal for helping you with the diagnosis and treatment of injuries that often result from the impact of a crash, including:
Whiplash: symptoms include neck pain, headaches, numbness and tingling in arms or shoulders, dizziness, vision disturbances, painful motion in cervical spine, reduced mobility, and constant pain
Herniated discs: pain and swelling in the joint and surrounding tissue, decreasing range of motion and function, painful nerves, and joint irritation
Bone fractures: Fractures are breaks in the bone that might not be visually obvious, but which do cause tenderness and pain
Remember, these symptoms may set in right after the accident or a few days later. Research has shown that 88% of whiplash victims can have lasting pains and some disabilities for years to come after an accident. This is usually the result of not receiving immediate and proper treatment for their condition.
Insurance can pay for your care
After a car accident, your focus may also be on costs. Your car may have damage before it can be driven again, you may have to pay an insurance deductible, or you may need to find another form of transportation for a while. Even though all of these things can add up, what you cannot afford to neglect is necessary medical treatment. Oftentimes insurance extends coverage for medical and chiropractic care. In addition, it is always in the patient’s best interest to get diagnosed before all of the insurance claims have been filed.
