Not only are accidents scary, traumatic, and costly to come back from, but serious injuries that affect your quality of life are common. If you’ve recently been in an accident, it’s essential to seek the care of an experienced chiropractor as soon as possible, even if you don’t think you’re injured. If you’re in Freeport, NY, or any of the surrounding areas, Walter E. Mendoza, Chiropractor, PC can help get you back to optimal health.
Why Is Seeing a Chiropractor After an Accident is Important
Many common auto accident injuries such as whiplash aren’t apparent immediately after an accident. Many people walk away from the incident, assuming nothing’s happened because they aren’t hurting or experiencing any issues, only to find out too late that that’s not the case at all.
Going to the emergency room or your usual doctor often isn’t enough, as it’s easy to miss the subtler signs of common injuries. A chiropractor knows what to look for to guarantee you’re uninjured. If you do turn out to have an injury, we can address it before it becomes a serious issue.
Seeing a chiropractor right away can make the process of filing insurance claims or managing legal issues easier, too. Your visit and treatment definitively tie any injuries you’ve experienced to the accident itself, making it easy to wrap everything up neatly.
Our chiropractor will develop a treatment plan that is designed to effectively reduce your pain and encourage speedy recovery for your injuries. Dr. Mendoza is certified in Graston technique therapy and as such, he may involve that therapy as part of your treatment plan.
What Types of Auto Accident Injuries Can Our Chiropractor Treat?
No two accidents are alike, and neither are any two injuries. Chiropractors are adept at assessing injuries specific to auto accidents and can treat them naturally and non-invasively. Examples include:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Soft tissue injury
- Nerve pain
- Chronic issues related to accident injuries
Seeking chiropractic care helps you make a speedier recovery and get your life back on track more quickly. Chiropractors help their patients avoid developing chronic issues and having to deal with long-term pain by addressing injuries early. You’re more likely to regain a full range of motion under the care of our chiropractor. In many cases, chiropractic patients can recover from their injuries without resorting to invasive surgery or prescription medication.
