As we discussed in part one of this two-part blog series, chiropractors and other medical professionals may play a major role in helping identify certain injuries following a car accident. While some such injuries may be obvious immediately based on physical symptoms, others can show up in a delayed manner or with strange patterns — and a specialist will often be ideally positioned to help identify them even if symptoms are insignificant or perhaps not even present.

At Foundation Chiropractic, we’re proud to offer high-quality auto accident chiropractic services that cover several important areas here, including the identification of injuries and their symptoms following an accident. What are some of the other vital roles that chiropractors or other specialists may play during these times? Here’s a primer.

Identifying Ideal Injury Treatments

We left off in part one with the way many chiropractors, especially those who specialize in auto accident treatments, will help patients avoid the need for surgery for their injuries where possible. Down related lines in many cases, chiropractors will also help patients identify the ideal methods of treatment for their injuries.

This is a vital role, as different types of injuries will often require different approaches when it comes to care and rehabilitation. A trained chiropractor will be able to develop an overarching plan that takes all your specific needs into account — and helps you work toward recovery in the safest, most effective way possible.

Of course, this isn’t to say that surgery will never be necessary after an auto accident. But in many cases, it can be avoided with the help of a qualified chiropractor who takes the time to develop an ideal treatment plan for your individual situation.

Ensuring Proper Documentation

Additionally, a good chiropractor will also ensure that your injuries and their treatment are properly documented. This is important for a few reasons. First, if you do end up needing to see a surgeon or another specialist, they’ll have all the information they need on hand to provide you with the best possible care.

But proper documentation can also be helpful if you need to file an insurance claim or take some other legal action related to your accident. In short, having a qualified chiropractor on your side can make the entire process of recovering from an auto accident much smoother and easier — and that’s something we’re always happy to provide at Foundation Chiropractic.

With You Through Recovery

Best of all, chiropractors are not a one-and-done type of care. Our chiropractors will continue to work with you through your entire recovery process, ensuring that you stay on track and make a full recovery. This can be vital in cases where injuries are severe or take a long time to heal.
