Auto Accident Injury Q & A

What types of auto accident injuries require medical intervention?

You expect injury after a high-speed crash, but your body can experience injury even in a seemingly minor fender bender. School bus accidents are also a common cause of injury. 

If you’ve experienced any of the following injuries following a car wreck or bus accident, seek care from the providers at Injury Care Chiropractic:

  • Whiplash
  • Soft-tissue injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Herniated spinal discs
  • Displaced bone fragments in the spine
  • Misalignments of the vertebrae

In many cases, you might feel fine right after the auto accident, only to experience symptoms days or weeks later. It’s best to get checked out after an auto accident, no matter how minor it seems, to prevent long-term problems that can cause pain and dysfunction.

What are the symptoms of auto accident injuries?

Some auto accident injuries have predictable symptoms, such as swelling, bruises, or broken bones. Other symptoms may be less obvious, including: 

  • Headaches or migraines
  • Neck pain or reduced range of motion
  • Overall body stiffness
  • Chest pain and back pain

The force of an auto accident can cause micro-tears in soft tissue or damage to vertebrae in your spine. This can cause lingering symptoms that interfere with your quality of life, but the team at Injury Care Chiropractic can help you manage discomfort and pain to find relief. 

What is whiplash?

Whiplash commonly results from auto accidents. It’s the result of your neck being thrust forward and backward suddenly. The jarring movement breaks down the tissue that supports your neck, causing microtears and the resulting pain and compromised range of motion.

How are auto injuries treated?

At Injury Care Chiropractic, the providers offer a wide variety of effective treatments for auto accident injuries or pain due to a bus accident, including:

  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation
  • Bracing for your neck or spine
  • Electrical muscle stimulation
  • Interferential therapy
  • Chiropractic adjustments and manipulations
  • Cold laser therapy
  • Therapeutic ultrasound
  • Active release technique

Early, effective treatment helps your auto injury heal and reduces the likelihood that you’ll experience long-term pain. The team works with all major insurance companies to help get your injuries covered so you can focus on healing. 

The office is also a designated provider under Kentucky No-Fault assigned claims, meaning they work with your insurance company to pay for your medical expenses related to the accident, regardless of who was at fault and whether the other party was insured. In Kentucky, you are eligible for up to $10,000 in medical benefits and lost wages according to Kentucky Personal Injury Protection (PIP) law.

Don’t let the lingering effects of an auto accident destroy your quality of life. If you have persistent pain from auto accident injuries, call Injury Care Chiropractic to find relief.
