When you’ve been in a car accident, you need care that supports you as you recover and attends to your long-term needs. While bandaid approaches such as drugs or surgical procedures might offer some help, they don’t address the underlying problems causing your pain using research-backed treatments.

Our Denver Chiropractic, LLC team wants to help your body, mind, and soul heal. We understand that a car accident can dramatically change your life, if only for a few weeks or months. This is our motivation behind helping you get the treatment you need while creating an objective medical history of your injuries that is critical for approaching the justice system. The following guide will give you additional details regarding these three excellent reasons for coming to see us after a car accident.

Expert Assessment and Issue Identification

When you enter our offices, we begin with a comprehensive consultation. Since we have onsite Digital X-ray capabilities, we can take professional-grade images to see what has happened to your bones, organs, and other body parts, not all injuries are visible or cause symptoms that you notice. Internal bleeding, a concussion, and organ damage can be hard to find.

Following a car accident, your adrenaline floods your system so much that you might not notice some of your injuries. We have experience evaluating individuals who have suffered car accident-related injuries. During your consultation, we perform a comprehensive physical examination in which we look for any health issues.

Our team does more than look at a scan or feel for injuries. These techniques are essential. Indeed, they are the foundation of much of our practice. Another critical component of our work is movement. For this reason, we’ll assess your walking, standing, and sitting just as much as we scrutinize your scans or your spine. Once we learn how the accident has impacted your body, we can work toward restoring pain-free and easy movement.

Proven Therapies and Other Treatments

Our team does more than look for problems. We look for solutions starting at your initial office visit. Since we’re a comprehensive chiropractic medical practice, we specialize in a wide range of chiropractic therapies and even offer a few related treatments such as massage therapy and acupuncture.

Some of our treatments include the traditional hands-on adjustments you might associate with chiropractic care and a few you might not know. We offer conventional spinal manipulation or chiropractic adjustment. We also provide therapy featuring the Flexion-Distraction Technique, the Graston Technique, and the Active Release Technique to target different symptoms.

As a practice, we always stay informed regarding the latest medical advancements. We scrutinize the research literature and look for cutting-edge treatments that show promise. When a significant body of evidence demonstrates that a particular device, technology, or method is effective, we consider it for our patients. Some of the technology-based treatment tools our practice uses to promote car accident recovery include:

In addition to using the latest technology, we love to help our patients lead healthier lives. While nutritional consultation might not seem as glamorous as some of the therapies we offer, we’ve seen how making healthier dietary choices can make a lot of difference in healing from injuries and building a better body. Ergonomic consultation, routine exercise, and stress management routines also provide similarly remarkable benefits.

Documentation for Insurance Companies and Court

One reason to see us is that we can help you create the paper trail you need to press charges or process a claim with your insurance company. While this is probably the last thing you’re thinking about after an accident, failing to establish appropriate and timely documentation can make it hard to go after another driver. This is true even if they were engaged in one or more risky driving behaviors such as chemically-impaired driving, speeding, or distracted driving.

In addition to presenting your physical injuries, we can also provide written documentation of the emotional consequences of your injury. Increased anxiety, for example, is very common following a car accident. Even though we don’t specifically treat mental health issues, we can document our observations and our referral to a qualified mental health professional for possible anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, or other mental health conditions.

Your car accident has already caused more suffering than you deserve. We don’t think you should leave your legal or financial options to chance or looming deadlines on the calendar. Don’t be caught off-guard. Be prepared with professional medical documentation of your injuries compiled by our experienced team of medical staff.

Consider Post-Accident Chiropractic Care

While there are many more reasons to come to us after an accident, these three reasons demonstrate how our practice can help you rebuild your entire life, not just recover from injuries as fantastic as that can feel. If you’ve been in a car accident, you can’t afford to put off treatment due to the staggering physical, social, and other consequences of living with untreated injuries.

We’re proud to offer comprehensive, compassionate care for your injuries and real help for rebuilding your life.
