Why should I seek personal injury treatment from a chiropractor after an auto accident?
Immediately following an auto accident, it is recommended that you seek personal injury treatment so that it is covered by your car insurance. DMC Healthcare accepts many major insurance plans. Dr. Weddle and his team of professionals work with patients who have received personal injury from car accident injuries to work related injuries. Some of the treatments provided include spinal decompression, physical therapy, chiropractic adjustments, and active release techniques for a wide range of injuries. Dr. Weddle will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan for your specific needs.
What types of personal injuries can be treated with chiropractic care?
Getting into an accident, either because of an auto accident or an injury at work, can cause injury to the musculoskeletal system and the soft tissues of the body. Depending on the severity of the situation, and the complexity of the injury, Dr. Weddle offers different tools and services to address the injury and the underlying cause from which it stems.
Some common injuries that occur in accidents include:
- Contusions or bruised bones
- Injuries to joints or joint pain
- General pain in the back, particularly the lower and mid-back
- Strained or sprained muscles in the back, neck or other areas of the body
- Injuries to the spine, including nerve damage or compression from a herniated disc
How long will it take for my injuries to be healed?
For personal injury cases, it is best to continue treatment for the amount of time prescribed by your doctor. This will depend largely on many different factors including the extent of your injuries and your ability to recover. As a reliable alternative to conventional medicine, Dr. Weddle uses safe, drug-free, multiple approached treatment methods that target the cause of pain and not just masking the pain with medication. Pain from an injury can sometimes take days or even weeks to show up so that is why it is best to seek treatment right away to promote a faster healing response that is complete and long lasting.
