Chiropractic Care Following a Motor Vehicle Collision or Other Injury
Professional chiropractic care is recommended following any accident or injury. A quick and accurate diagnosis is crucial, with patients always benefiting from early intervention and treatment. A comprehensive physical examination by a chiropractor ensures professional long-term care and an accurate claims process.
People suffer a wide array of injuries following an accident. Many of these injuries are not immediately identified during the emergency response period.
For example, broken bones and concussions are typically recognized by all competent medical professionals. But ER staff are not trained to identify and manage many musculoskeletal problems. From whiplash and back pain through to herniated disks and nerve damage, the impact of an accident can cause a range of ongoing physical problems.
Rather than waiting for symptoms and signs of physical distress, it’s important to get treatment as early as possible.
Benefits of Early Intervention
Accurate diagnosis – It’s much easier to identify problems in the early stages of recovery. Acute injuries often go on to cause chronic problems, which is why they need to be dealt with at the source. Early intervention enables accurate diagnosis and effective treatment.
Comprehensive treatment – Long-term recovery depends on correct diagnosis and effective mobilization. There is systematic and convincing evidence in favor of active treatment following an injury. Early intervention allows us to create a long-term management plan based on the nature of the accident and how it relates to your corresponding physical condition.
