If you are currently taking time off work due to recovering from a car accident injury, chances are you’re looking for anything and everything to heal as quickly as possible. Fortunately, chiropractic care after a car accident is highly recommended and can help you get healed and recovered quickly, so you can get back to work. In most cases, your insurance will pay for a minimum of 70% of your loss of income while you are in therapy.
Depending on the type of injury and where the injury was sustained, your recovery time and treatment may defer. However, since many automobile accident injuries affect your musculoskeletal system, it’s important to begin chiropractic treatment as soon as possible to prevent injuries from affecting your everyday activities. By realigning your spine, your body can heal holistically, and faster! Chiropractic therapy can heal injuries from car accidents like:
- Neck pain
- Shoulder and Back Pain
- Arm and Leg Pain
- Herniated disks
Though you often won’t begin to show symptoms of these injuries until many weeks after your accident, it doesn’t diminish how serious the injury is. You should consider seeing a chiropractor soon after your accident to minimize the amount of damage that the injury could cause long term. These injuries could impact other motions and parts of the body that were seemingly “unaffected” in your accident. During your appointment, your chiropractor will get a sense of the treatment you need by inspecting the injured area via x-rays, MRIs, or additional lab tests. Once the injury is properly assessed, your treatment may involve:
- Chiropractic Adjustments
- Electrical Stimulation
