Have an Auto Injury? Our Chiropractors in Lone Tree can help!

According to the Insurance Research Council, nearly 1/3 of all claimants injured in motor vehicle accidents (MVA’s) seek treatment from doctors of chiropractic. This is an impressive number given that the National Safety Council (NSC) has determined there to be more than 12 million MVA’s annually involving more than 20 million vehicles.

The reason people choose integrated physical medicine and chiropractic care for treatment of injuries sustained in MVA’s is simple — multidisciplinary care is exceptional in the treatment of soft tissue injuries of the spine. Since the most common injuries associated with MVA’s are sprains and strains of the spinal muscles, ligaments and connective tissues, it’s only natural that a combined approach will get the best results!

Research indicates that 57% of persons suffering whiplash injury of the neck will have symptoms 10 years later.  It is safe to say that a good proportion of the people reporting in this study had inadequate, incomplete or delayed care.  The mechanical component of neck whiplash injuries is often addressed using chemicals (drugs).  The drugs may help the pain, but do not restore normal, healthy mechanical function of the injured joints in the neck, back, shoulders and hips.  Skilled manual therapy and rehabilitation is the right solution for your accident-related injuries.  Quite simply, we use mechanical therapy for a mechanical injury. 

What To Do After an Auto Accident

Schedule An Appointment As Soon As Possible

If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, your first step is to schedule an appointment for a thorough history and examination. Often, individuals involved in motor vehicle accidents experience minimal or no symptoms for the first few weeks. It’s important to not only receive early, appropriate treatment for any injuries you have sustained, but also to document the extent of the injuries. Failure to obtain a timely evaluation and appropriate treatment for injuries you have sustained in a motor vehicle accident may limit your ability to recover fully, and may also complicate your ability to have treatment for injuries reimbursed by the responsible parties.

On Your First Visit We Will:

  • Evaluate the extent of the injury or injuries;
  • Establish a prognosis for your recovery;
  • Determine if you will require referral to another health care specialist;
  • Determine your need for advanced imaging studies;
  • If appropriate, initiate rehabilitative care to expedite your recovery.

Understanding Medical Expenses

In an auto accident claim the at-fault driver (or their insurance company) is obligated to pay for the insured person’s reasonable health care expenses.  These expenses are usually not paid when the treatment is provided, but at a later date.  Reimbursement of medical expenses is just one part of a single lump sum settlement that is negotiated only after all accident-related injury care is complete.

You can rest assured that you will receive only the highest quality injury care at The Center for Spine, Sport & Physical Medicine.  We will use the combined efforts of our medical, chiropractic and physical rehabilitation providers to help you recovery as fully and rapidly as possible.

The importance of accurately documenting the nature and severity of your injuries cannot be overemphasized.  You deserve trusted, preferred experts in auto injury care to help guide your recovery. It’s what we do.  We are able to care for you on a Medical Lien basis to ensure that you get the care you deserve when you need it most.  That means you don’t have to worry about finances to get the highest quality injury care possible.
