Auto Accident FAQs
An auto accident can result in many different injuries, some of which will not be apparent until 24 to 48 hours after the crash. Holistic Health Clinic in Beaverton, OR, is here to help. Here are a few of the questions we commonly hear after an auto accident.
What Are the Most Common Auto Accident Injuries?
An auto accident can cause many of the following injuries:
- pinched nerves in the neck and back
- pulled muscles
- herniated discs
These are just a few of the commonly reported injuries associated with auto accident injuries.
How Does Chiropractic Care Address an Auto Accident Injury?
If you have been involved in an auto accident, your chiropractor will use the diagnostic procedures he has available to determine the cause and exact location of your injury. Once he has that information, he can begin to formulate a treatment plan that will address your individual injuries and concerns. Receiving treatment early helps ensure your pain will be minimized and healing will go much faster.
What Treatment Options Will My Chiropractor Use?
Your chiropractor will choose the treatment options that will be most effective for your individual needs. These options include:
- chiropractic care
- hot laser therapy
Treatment options are carefully chosen for each patient to ensure efficient and effective healing. Our health and wellness team has many treatment options that can be included in a customized treatment plan. With the right treatment options, you will begin the healing process much sooner and be on the road to recovery.
I Don't Feel Injured. Should I Still Visit My Chiropractor?
Even though you don't feel any pain immediately after your accident, you should still seek treatment immediately. The rush of adrenaline you get after an accident can mask your pain for 24 to 48 hours, sometimes longer. Schedule an appointment with your chiropractor as soon as possible, and you may be able to minimize the pain you feel after an accident.
