Auto Injury Treatment Back to Health Chiropractic and Massage

After being in an auto accident, chances are that your mind is racing with all of the things you need to do. If you don’t think that you’re injured, you may think that you can skip seeking medical care. However, even if you feel fine, one of the most important things you can do after an auto accident is to see a chiropractor for care. 

Chiropractic care after an auto accident is an investment in your future wellbeing and protects your rights to get compensation if you do have an injury. Dr. Saeman and Dr. Haak are both experienced in treating patients after an auto accident and are ready to help you get the care you need. 

Why should I see a chiropractor if I feel fine?

Some auto accident injuries are immediately recognizable, so you know right away that you need to get care. However, it’s very common for some injuries, including common ones like whiplash or back pain, to come on slowly. You may not have any symptoms immediately after your accident, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t an underlying injury that will emerge. A chiropractor can identify those problems before symptoms appear, so you can get treatment right away, before things get worse. 

What are the risks of waiting to be seen by a chiropractor?

If you don’t make an appointment with Dr. Saeman or Dr. Haak after an accident, your injury could get worse. Getting chiropractic care as soon as possible will help you avoid the complications that could arise from a worsening injury. Additionally, if you report to the insurance companies involved in accident claims that you are not injured prematurely, then find out that you were in fact hurt, you could lose your ability to receive the appropriate compensation for your medical costs. 

How does chiropractic care help?

Chiropractic care can be tailored to your specific needs, but this holistic approach to treatment is centered on restoring your healthy spinal alignment, which is frequently disturbed in auto accidents. As a result, back and neck pain, headaches, and a wide range of complications can be addressed.
