Auto Accident Q & A

What are the signs of an auto accident injury?

Auto accident injuries can range from mild muscle soreness to severe, debilitating pain. Potential signs of injury after an auto accident include:

  • Decreased range of motion and stiffness
  • Neck and back pain
  • Shoulder, arm, or hand pain, numbness, or tingling
  • Headaches
  • Bruising and swelling
  • Cuts and scrapes
  • Fatigue and difficulty concentrating
  • Hip or knee pain

Depending on the type of car accident you were in and the angle of impact, you can experience other injuries in addition to these common issues.

When should I seek medical care after an auto accident?

You should seek medical attention after any type of auto accident. Auto accident injuries can even occur at low speeds under 20 mph and should be evaluated, regardless of your level of pain. In some cases, car accident injuries don’t cause pain for a few days or weeks, so you may not know you’re injured. Early evaluation from the team at Taylor Chiropractic and Weight Loss Clinic can identify issues before they become a bigger problem and contribute to chronic pain or disability.

Establishing a medical record of any injuries you’ve sustained is also important to your auto insurance company or attorney if you choose to open a personal injury case. The team works with your insurance agent or attorney to ensure you have proper documentation of your medical records, which can significantly reduce your out-of-pocket expenses for treatment.

What is the treatment for auto accident injuries?

At Taylor Chiropractic and Weight Loss Clinic, the team thoroughly examines your head, neck, spine, and limbs to assess for signs of injuries or pain.
