Auto Accident Injury: Long Term Effects

Auto Accident Injury: Chiropractic Care Helps Avoid Long-Term Health Problems

If you have recently been in a car accident, prompt treatment is essential to avoiding long-term health problems associated with common injuries like whiplash. Without prompt, effective treatment, you may be left struggling with recurring pain for months or even years following the accident. Neck pain, headaches at the base of the skull, back pain and general soreness and stiffness are common. Do not mistake the absence of immediate symptoms for a lack of injury. Many musculoskeletal injuries do not exhibit immediate pain symptoms until weeks after the accident. Our Nashville chiropractor has years of experience diagnosing and treating auto accident injuries – we can help you avoid a lifetime of pain!

Prompt Diagnostic Exams & Chiropractic Care Prevent Long-Term Problems

Whiplash injuries are one of the most common car accident injuries that cause recurring pain. A whiplash injury occurs when the force of a rear-impact auto accident “whips” the neck beyond its normal range of motion. This whipping action can knock the cervical spine out of alignment, resulting in chronic neck pain and headaches. Stiffness, soreness and reduced mobility are common. While it is not unusual to feel some soreness immediately following the car accident, the majority of symptoms may not become noticeable until several weeks after the accident. This is why prompt diagnostic exams are so important. Even if you do not feel chronic pain symptoms, a diagnostic exam can help detect the presence of an underlying musculoskeletal injury so our chiropractor can begin taking immediate steps to treat this problem.

After an accident, our chiropractic team understands that you will want to put the accident behind you as quickly as possible. In the rush to repair your car and settle with your insurance company, do not neglect your health. Before settling with your insurance company, be sure you have first had a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation. Should you later develop pain from your injuries, this exam will show the injuries were caused by the car accident and help you receive maximum medical treatment compensation from your insurance company.

You do not need to be in a serious car accident to need medical attention and chiropractic care. Even if you walk away from the accident with only a few bruises, you may still have sustained serious damage to the musculoskeletal system. Failing to promptly diagnose and treat these injuries can leave you struggling with chronic pain for months or even years to come. Worse, since you did not have a diagnostic exam to identify the injuries prior to settling with your insurance company, you may be denied compensation for these injuries.

The long-term effects of car accident injuries can seriously affect your quality of life. Recurring pain makes it difficult to sleep comfortably at night, focus on work, and enjoy an active lifestyle. A diagnostic exam is the first step to treating these injuries.

I have seen their Nashville accident and injury center from a year now for just preventative maintenance. There has been a tremendous improvement on my overall fitness and energy levels compared to before. I can’t thank them enough. The auto accident I was in reallytook a toll on my life but thanks to these Dr. Bearden and his team for the great chiropractic care and a very supportive nature.

If you are searching for auto accident injury treatment in Nashville, then you should give them a call. I was grappling with so much neck pain for nearly a year after my accident. Tried so many approaches whether its physical therapy, medicines or massage but all of them were only short term relief. Within a short period of time, I could tell an enormous breakthrough with my pain levels and after 2 and a half months was off my meds and sleeping well again. Only wish I found them sooner.

From the years of strenuous workout of power lifting and squats, my spine was exhausted. After months of suffering with chronic, re-occuring pain, I scheduled an appointment with their center. Right off the bat, they addressed all of my concerns re: Insurance and ability to pay and what to expect from one week to the next. After a month of treatment I was back in the gym at a capacity I hadn’t achieved for several years. I am optimistic this has saved me from future back surgery and having to resort to pain management. I tell everybody at my gym to try this first before resorting to other dangerous methods recommended to me by the other people.

2 years ago, I was brutally hit by a car which caused me immense neck pain and sciatica. Dr. Bearden and Dr. Josh were great at fixingmy spinal alignment with their gentle traction method and rehab. I was lucky to find them and hopefully avoid any future chronic pain down the road.

Their spinal decompression therapy ended up being the best therapy for my grandfather. In fact, he wasn’t able to sit properly and donormal work around the house. But because of these great folks, he is now doing everything on his own without any support of a family member.

I found this clinic after being turned away from my regular doctors office because of “third party pay” after my car accident. Their Insurance dep’t was helpful in assisting me with resolving my case so that I could focus on my health and overall recovery.

Nashville accident and injury center treatment plans are quite easy to follow for treating the pain and ache in the body. I went to this doctor at the hard time of Covid; each and every staff member had taken a proper precaution while wearing a masks and gloves. Overall I am impressed with the careful measures they have taken. Within a few sessions, they reduced the back problem from my back and neck. It was an effective treatment and I strongly referring them high enough.
