After a car accident you only have 14 days after the date of your auto accident to be evaluated for your injuries by a car injury doctor, or you may lose your benefits.
Car accidents have the ability to cause injury to every part of the human body, but several injuries are more common than others:
If you are experiencing back pain after an accident, it is imperative that you make an appointment with skilled car injury doctors as soon as possible to determine the severity of your injury. Your physician will be able to create a custom treatment regimen to help you heal, including:
After an auto accident you may experience all or some of the following symptoms: headaches, neck and back pain, stomach pain, numbness. In more serious auto accidents you may experience PTSD. Some of these symptoms can be delayed so it's always best to visit a doctor after a car accident.
Whiplash is an injury of the neck that is caused by a violent back and forth “snapping” of the neck vertebrae, often found in auto accident victims involved in a rear-end collision. The pain from whiplash injuries can range from moderate to severe, but can be effectively treated through chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy.
Auto injury chiropractic has been proven effective for treating injuries to the musculoskeletal system (including the back, neck, and extremities), without using potentially dangerous prescription medications or surgery.
MRI and X-ray are medical imaging techniques which are used to discover structural injuries to the body. If a patient comes to us with localized pain, we have the ability to scan the area and determine if there is any structural damage, ranging from breaks & fractures, to lesser injuries like sprains & strains.
If you have sustained an injury as a result of an automobile or motorcycle accident, diagnostic imaging is among the first tools that accident doctors use to diagnose injuries and conditions in order to figure out the next steps of treatment, and we gladly accept walk-ins for both X-ray and MRI services.
Because most whiplash injuries impact the spine and the surrounding nerves and tissues, chiropractic is a particularly useful form of treatment. Dr. Wagner is skilled in assessing the source of the pain associated with your whiplash injury and determining a unique plan for effective treatments. Chiropractic treatments are gentle and non-invasive.
Dr. Wagner makes use of controlled, sudden-force techniques, often referred to as “cervical manipulation,” to press your joints back into alignment. This joint manipulation helps to loosen up tight areas where nerves or muscles are inflamed or compressed, greatly reducing your pain and increasing your range of motion.
