Chiropractic Care for Car Accident Injuries
Motor vehicle accidents, car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents and any injury accident have one thing in common. They should all be checked out by a qualified doctor who has experience in the area of injury and accidents. In this section, I want to tell a story of a young lady who had been in a motor vehicle rear end collision that occurred almost three years earlier before she consulted our office. She developed post traumatic migraines that started about 6 months after the accident and gradually progressed until she was missing several days of work and had lost the ability to take care of her children. She sought care in our office and with a comprehensive history and examination; we quickly found the cause of her injury. Now, this young lady was a tough hard working strong willed woman who opted not to get evaluated after the accident, in fact, even though she was sore and stiff, she prided herself on “pushing” through the injury and bragging that she totaled a car but didn’t get hurt. The bad part of the story was, she was hurt but just didn’t know it right away. Because she did not get an early evaluation and a necessary referral to a competent attorney she was stuck paying for the treatment herself years later. The moral of this story is that many times, patients and friends don’t need treatment or an attorney at all, but if you don’t get checked and document how you feel after even a very mild accident you have waved all your rights to treatment and care to improve your health.
We will gladly do a consult for you at any time following an accident, many subtle findings are present you may not even be aware of. Like a boxer who gets hit in the side of the head, he has no idea that his eyes when evaluated are not tracking correctly, these same often very subtle clues can tell us whether your body or head has suffered even mild trauma. We use x-ray, MRI, CRMA’s and diagnostic procedures to establish your injuries. Dr. Bernard has examined hundreds of patients, developed hundreds of files for court presentations, consulted with hundreds of attorneys on injury, permanency, Workers’ Compensation Injuries and developed life plans for injured patients. Our office would be glad to offer our expertise and services to improve your life.
Don’t know if you’re hurt? Just ask Dr. Bernard at 715-410-0706.
