Why You Should See a Chiropractor for Auto Injury Treatment
If you’ve ever been in an auto accident, you know just how disruptive they can be. Even minor accidents can lead to major stress as you attempt to navigate insurance coverage and auto repairs, and that is before you consider the time and expense of dealing with injuries from the accident.
Too often, people put their own wellbeing on the back burner after an auto accident if they don’t have any immediately obvious signs of injury, but that strategy frequently leads to problems down the road. In reality, even if you think you haven’t been injured in any way, one of the first things you should do after an auto accident is to see a chiropractor for auto injury treatment.
There are several reasons why a chiropractor visit at Mauger Medical should be at the top of your post-accident to-do list.
Get an Accurate Diagnosis of Injuries
After an auto accident, you may not experience the symptoms of an injury right away. Frequently, whiplash and other injuries that are related to muscle strains and spinal alignment issues do not cause symptoms until weeks or even months after an accident.
In the interim, the damage could be getting worse, leading to a longer recovery time. Visiting a chiropractor like Dr. Mauger or Dr. Girdy allows you to get an accurate diagnosis of any injuries you’ve experienced even if they are not causing symptoms yet, so you can start care right away.
Create a Record of Seeking Medical Care
If you were in an auto accident that wasn’t your fault, it is important to take steps to protect your rights to seek compensation. Seeing Dr. Mauger or Dr. Girdy will create a record of your efforts to seek medical care. If you have to pursue compensation for injuries from an insurance company, it will help your case if you can show that you began your efforts to get treatment immediately after the accident.
Drug-Free Recovery from Auto Accident Injuries
Chiropractic care can help ease the pain caused by auto accident injuries without relying on pain medications. Spinal adjustments and other chiropractic techniques address structural misalignments that frequently occur in the spine after auto accidents, restoring the spine to a healthy position and alleviating pressure on nerves. Most patients find that chiropractic care not only helps them heal from auto accident injuries, but also improves their overall well-being.
