You want the best possible treatment quickly and without aggravating hassles after an auto accident. Here at Expressions Chiropractic and Rehab in Cedar Hill, TX, we often hear from people who have questions about chiropractic treatment after a car accident. Here are some commonly asked questions:
Does Insurance Cover Chiropractic Treatment?
This depends on the specific policy covering your accident, so always check both your policy and that of any other individual at fault in the accident. Chiropractic care is a popular alternative that is often less expensive to the insurance carrier than conventional medical treatment. Most insurance carriers now include chiropractic care as an option for medical treatment for auto accident injuries. Our billing and accounts staff can answer your questions if you need help understanding the terms of your coverage.
Should I Wait for an Insurance Settlement Before Seeking Chiropractic Care?
You should always seek treatment as soon as possible after a car accident. Many injuries can get worse if not treated quickly. Many injuries can be hidden and will not be apparent after an accident. A careful examination may disclose such injuries and deal with them before they become severe. Always consult your doctor or chiropractor as soon as possible after an accident, even if you don't think you were injured.
What Injuries Are Common After a Car Accident?
We see many car accident victims at Expressions Chiropractic and Rehab. Common injuries include whiplash, concussions, and soft tissue injuries to muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Injuries to joints like the knee, hip, shoulder, and elbow are also common. You can also suffer slipped or herniated discs in the spine and other back or neck injuries. Chiropractic care is effective in treating all of these injuries.
Are There Treatment Options That Do Not Involve Drugs or Surgery After an Accident?
Chiropractic care specializes in dealing with underlying causes rather than symptoms. We prefer to rely upon a range of holistic treatments instead of surgery and painkillers at Expressions Chiropractic and Rehab. We can offer the following as needed:
- spinal adjustments to restore the spine to its natural posture, to treat whiplash and back pain
- joint mobilization to restore the full range of motion to the hips, knees, elbows, and shoulders
- massage therapy for muscle and other soft tissue injury
We also offer a wide array of other treatments which have been scientifically tested and validated. Our treatments are safe and have been shown to be at least as effective as surgery or painkillers for many conditions.
