After an auto accident, it's easy to get caught up in a rush of things to do. You may need to make a police report, contact your auto insurance company, and have urgent injuries taken care of at the local hospital. Despite all of this, there is one other thing you should do: See a chiropractor. Here is why we at South Bay Wellness Center in San Jose urge you to come in:
1. Fast Treatment Improves Results
The sooner you begin treatment for your injuries, the better off you are. Without treatment, further pain and inflammation are likely. Your body may also begin to heal improperly due to misalignments and other such problems.
2. Not All Injuries Are Immediately Obvious
Even though car accidents are sudden, the appearance of related injuries often involves a delay. For example, you may notice months later that your back, neck, or one of your joints is giving you trouble. The delay can be long enough that you don't connect your pains to your car accident, but an examination will reveal that the wreck was indeed the cause. By this time, improper healing may have happened, resulting in a much more difficult process for correcting the damage.
3. Your Insurance May Have a Time Limit for Accident-Related Health Claims
Many insurance companies put time limits on claims for injuries and other health problems that are related to auto accidents. Coming into our office for an evaluation right away ensures that even hidden injuries are found and reported to the company in time for them to be covered. We will be sure to provide all of the documentation needed to ensure that your coverage will pay for the treatments.
