Have you been involved in a car accident? We can help.
All car accidents are different. The angle at which one vehicle hits another object / vehicle, the type of vehicle involved, the age of the person(s) in each vehicle, the use of seatbelts, time of day and weather conditions all play a role in the injuries that affect occupants of each vehicle.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the rate of auto accident injuries has been on the decline in recent years, yet while that statement sounds nice, on average, almost 3 million people were in auto accidents last year, and approximately 4,300 of those are fatal accidents. A vehicle accident is not just defined as two cars hitting one another. There are many types of auto accidents, such as: vehicle on vehicle (car, truck, SUV, motorcycle, etc.), vehicle on stationary object (tree, pole, fence, building, median, etc.), vehicle on pedestrian, etc.
An injury stemming from one of these auto accidents can be classified as a major injury or a minor one. Regardless of how bad the injury may be, the people involved should consult a chiropractic physician immediately because the injury may not present itself for days or even weeks after an accident occurs. A chiropractic physician can then assess the situation, and prescribe or schedule treatments.
The Role of the Chiropractor in Auto Accidents
A chiropractor’s skills lie primarily in techniques related to the spine. A person in a car accident may experience one or all of the following symptoms stemming from spinal injury or bruising:
- Lower and / or Upper Back Pain
- Neck Pain / Whiplash
- Pinched Nerves
- Slipped Disc
- Shoulder and / or Arm
Chiropractic care is a very important part of the healing process for patients who are injured in car accidents. Dr. Nadimi will create a tailored, individualized treatment plan and schedule to promote healing, increase mobility and reduce pain. If an injured person requires special medical attention, the chiropractor will refer the patient to a medical physician.
Are you worried about payment? No insurance? No problem. Car accident insurance and car accident attorney liens are accepted. Many times you will not be billed for car accident injury until your case is settled.
