For many people who have been in a car accident, their life becomes divided into two parts; the part before the auto accident and the part after it. If you suffer an injury, how you choose to deal with that injury can make a big difference in how your quality of life plays out in the years to come. This is one of the biggest reasons why you should get checked for potential injuries — even if you don’t feel them as soon as possible after an accident. Another major reason for getting checked out as soon as possible is to establish credibility with the insurance company for when you file a claim.
Seeing a Chiropractor for Pain and Injury Treatment After an Auto Accident
In an attempt to deal with an injury as completely as possible, it is not uncommon for those who have been in an accident to seek out chiropractic treatment after their accident. In Henderson and Las Vegas, Nevada, Anthem Chiropractic offers an effective option for immediate pain management as well as ongoing care that can identify the root of the problem. Treatment starts with seeing our chiropractor, Dr. Derek T. Day for an assessment. Even if you initially feel okay, it is important to be evaluated as soon as possible. Your adrenaline along with the drama of the incident can mask injuries in the moment, but then those injuries may manifest themselves later on. Getting an assessment will help to identify what injuries can be attributed to the accident, and will determine how the treatment should be covered by applicable auto insurance and medical insurance policies. The larger the treatment gap is, the more likely it is that the car insurance company will claim that the injuries treated are not related to the accident.
