A lot of people think that feeling fine immediately after a car accident means they were not injured in the accident. “I was lucky,” they’ll say when loved ones reach out after the accident. This is a dangerous mistake.
Although you may not have symptoms right away, your neck or back could have been easily injured in the car accident, and those injuries will flare up later.
If you suffered broken bones or a traumatic brain injury, you need to go straight to the emergency room. But if you walk away from an accident thinking you are okay, then you need to schedule an evaluation with a chiropractor. Chiropractors are trained to identify abnormalities in the musculoskeletal system and can often diagnose injuries even before patients start to feel pain. Seeing a chiropractor after a car accident is important for a number of reasons.AID IN RECOVERY
The sooner your injuries are diagnosed, the soon you can start healing. Many chiropractic doctors are trained to help car accident victims recover faster and restore their mobility after an injury. Additionally, being aware of your injuries early on can help you avoid accidentally making these injuries worse. It’s not uncommon for car accident victims who are unaware of their injuries to hurt themselves more while performing daily activities.PROTECT YOUR CASE
Medical bills are expensive. If you want your insurance to pay for your medical bills after an accident, you need to prove your injuries were caused by the accident. Many car accident victims don’t realize they are injured until long after the accident. By the time you seek treatment for your pain, the insurance company may claim your injuries are unrelated to the accident. Or they could suggest that, because you waited so long for treatment, your injuries aren’t severe and reduce the value of your case.
If you or a loved one are in a car accident, you need to schedule an evaluation with your chiropractor within three days of the accident. This is the best way to improve your chances at recovery and make sure the insurance company fulfills their promises to you
