4 Reasons To See a Chiropractor After an Auto Accident

Shortly after a car accident, your first thought may be to call your insurance company or a lawyer, once any obvious injuries have been treated. But you should actually call a chiropractor, even if you feel fine immediately following the accident. If you are not convinced that you need the care of a chiropractor, take a look at the top reasons to set up at least one appointment soon after an accident.

1. Injuries Can Take Weeks or Months to Appear

Getting fast treatment can help prevent neck and back problems that may show up months after the accident, usually at the worst possible time. Whiplash in particular tends to take weeks to present symptoms, and this is one of the most common injuries caused by auto accidents.

 2. Even Minor Crashes Can Cause Injuries

Just because you were going only 10 mph does not mean you are free of injuries after the crash. In fact, being in a minor accident often increases the chance of victims ignoring their injuries until they get worse. This can make the injuries even harder to treat, requiring numerous visits to a chiropractor’s office.

 3. Fast Treatment May Be Paid for by Insurance

If you want a good chance of getting chiropractic services covered by the at-fault driver’s insurance, it makes sense to get treatment right after the accident. If you wait weeks or months, the insurance company may claim your injury as not related to the car crash. This means you will have to fight harder to get it paid for than if you were to get treatment right away, so you are encouraged to see a chiropractor within days of the accident.

 4. You Can Get Some Peace of Mind

You might find out at your appointment with a chiropractor that you have no injuries that require treatment. If so, you can at least stop worrying about residual symptoms of an accident that could show up suddenly at a bad time, such as in the middle of a workday. Having a professional carefully examine your neck and back can give you some peace of mind, whether any issues are found or not.

If you want to reap these benefits of being seen by a chiropractor soon after the accident, you should schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Baek or Dr. Kim. This will allow us to take a look at your specific circumstances to determine if you need treatment at our office after a car accident. We invite you to call Dr. Steve Baek and Dr. Young  Kim, Chiropractors/Injury Specialists, at any of these three numbers to get started on your treatment plan!
