Have you ever heard of those courageous stories in the news? People will have a broken leg or arm and still be able to pull others out during a bad car accident. Once the chaos all settles, they then realize that they are also injured and hurt even worse than those that they were helping. In any accident, big or small, your sympathetic nervous system is working in overtime. While this example is extreme, it doesn’t mean that smaller instances like these don’t happen in even the tiniest of auto accidents. At Dr. Keren H. Gomez’s accident clinics, we believe that you should always call an auto accident chiropractor even if you don’t think you’re injured! Symptoms don’t always appear right away and for this reason alone, everyone should be seeking treatment.
Getting an Chiropractic Evaluation After any Auto Accident
Perhaps you aren’t experiencing any physical symptoms after a car accident. Like we’ve said before, it doesn’t mean that they won’t show up later. In fact, our chiropractor has caught injuries before any symptoms ever appeared to the patient. From shoulder injuries to whiplash, catching those injuries before they ever begin to show signs of pain can yield you a better outcome and better chance of recovery. Even if you are getting a clean bill of health and are sent out the door, knowing that your body is well after receiving an evaluation can be priceless.
Documentation for Insurance Purposes
When any accident occurs, visiting your chiropractor is not only a great idea from a medical standpoint, but it also helps a great deal for insurance purposes. When you visit one of our clinics, your provider will document all of your injuries that she finds and can also report this information to the insurance company. Depending on the injury and its severity level, we can also advocate for you and your treatment plan should additional treatments be required after an accident. Going to see an auto accident chiropractor even when you don’t think you are injured is crucial when it comes to having your insurance company pay your medical bills in the long run. Escaping the financial burden and insurance nightmare is much harder for those that wait too long to be seen versus those that make an appointment right away.
So no matter how big or small your car accident may be, even if you don’t think you’re injured, make an appointment with a trusted auto accident chiropractor today. Call Dr. Keren H. Gomez in Palm Beach at 561-414-2401 or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
