Prioritizing Your Health After a Car Accident
Auto accidents can be physically and emotionally traumatic. At Impact Injury Center, our work centers around your well-being. Even if the accident caused minimal or delayed symptoms, we strongly encourage you to let us evaluate your injuries so we can create a personalized chiropractic therapy treatment plan to promote healing, minimize painful symptoms, and restore mobility. Our doctors have extensive post-graduate educational training in MRI interpretation, whiplash and brain injury traumatology, and other professional certifications, so you can trust that you’ll receive the highest quality care.
Understanding Root Causes of Pain
After an auto accident, some people experience pain or whiplash symptoms right away, while others may not develop these symptoms until a day or two after the incident. Like those who exercise for the first time in months, it may take some time before you feel soreness or pain after the accident. Essentially, the injured tissues undergo the inflammatory phase of the remodeling process, during which your brain and body need time to process and interpret the pain.
Even minor auto accidents can lead to debilitating injures that may carry significant, long-term effects if they’re not addressed properly. In fact, studies conducted in Europe and America show that in collisions under 20 miles per hour, 36 percent of people reported cervical (neck) injuries and headaches, while 33 percent reported lower back and extremity (arm or leg) pain.
Auto Insurance in Oregon
If you were involved in a motor vehicle accident in Oregon, you (and anyone else involved in the collision) are likely eligible for at least $15,000 worth of health care covering services such as chiropractic care, massage therapy, and exercise rehabilitation. This is covered through your auto insurance’s Personal Injury Protection (PIP) policy, and it does not matter who is at fault for the collision.
Impact Injury Center works with all major automotive insurances. Our team is well-experienced and willing to assist you in filing a personal injury claim and support you throughout this sometimes confusing process. We invite you to contact our office today to learn more.
