Car Accident? Your path to recovery.
In the wake of a car accident, taking a moment to breathe is crucial. Even the most minor incidents can take a significant toll, both physically and emotionally.
The process of finding appropriate treatment and navigating the maze of insurance paperwork can add to this strain. But don’t worry, we’re here to provide the guidance and help you need.
The primary question to ask yourself is: How do you feel?
After a collision, there are typically two categories of injuries that individuals experience.
There are immediate injuries you sense right away, and others that might not present themselves until days or even weeks after the incident.
It’s not uncommon for people to feel immediate neck tension and pain, which may subside quickly, leading them to assume they are unharmed. However, they might start experiencing daily headaches or other symptoms weeks later.
The significant force from a car accident can misalign bones and cause soft tissue damage, and these effects can take time to become apparent.
Symptoms like sore shoulders from seatbelt strain, tingling in the fingers, reduced range of motion, headaches and others might not surface until later.
It’s important to listen to your body , allow it time to heal and not rush into the assumption that you’re injury-free.
What should I do if I think I’m injured? How quickly should I reach out?
Seeking professional assistance to examine your spine and other joints post-accident is vital. Delaying this step could result in further complications and extend your healing process. Early intervention can prevent many long-term issues related to whiplash and other associated injuries.

“Am I obligated to go to the clinic recommended by my insurance?” The answer is a resounding no.
It’s important to understand that insurance companies often make recommendations based on their business partnerships, not necessarily your best interests.
Remember, you have the freedom to choose your clinic, and your insurance coverage remains unchanged regardless of your choice.
We’ve seen countless individuals who, after failing to see results at other clinics, turn to us a few months later, only to find their insurance coverage has been depleted. Regrettably, in most cases once your insurance limit has been reached (which is standard for all minor accidents), we can’t reinstate it.
