Auto Accident Injuries: New Chiropractic Options

At Injury Medical & Chiropractic Clinic, chiropractor Dr. Alex Jimenez offers innovative options and improved assistance for people who have experienced an injury as a result of an auto accident. Dr. Jimenez can provide complete care for automobile accident victims by offering help with legal referral services as well as extended chiropractic options for treating common auto accident injuries, such as soft tissue injuries and whiplash.

After being involved in an automobile accident, symptoms of back pain, neck pain, and headaches most commonly result soon after. Whiplash is a soft tissue injury frequently diagnosed after a car crash and results when a person’s body has absorbed the great force of two automobiles impacting into each other. The term whiplash is used to describe a wide variety of injuries of the neck caused by an abrupt and rapid, back and forth snapping motion of the head, such as when an individual is rear-ended in a car. The symptoms for whiplash can range from mild neck pain, stiffness, and discomfort to severe injury on the spinal cord, fractures, or dislocations.

When starting treatment for whiplash, a medical specialist usually begins with X-rays as well as an examination of the neck and head in order to determine the severity of the injury. In doing so, the medical specialist can then recommend the appropriate treatments, such as manual manipulation, mobilizations, and range-of-motion exercises, according to the individual’s level of injury. A licensed chiropractor like Dr. Jimenez will generally begin an automobile accident injury assessment with an examination of the head, neck, and personal health history, followed by X-rays to determine the grade of injury. By working together, a medical doctor and a chiropractor will help an individual return back to their regular lifestyle after a car crash, and achieve healing, free of pain and discomfort.

“Many people who’ve suffered an auto accident choose to see a chiropractor rather than a medical doctor because chiropractors are specialists of the spine, back, and neck,” says Dr. Jimenez. At Injury Medical & Chiropractic Clinic, the chiropractor possesses the knowledge and training to use a wide variety of therapies in order to treat whiplash type injuries including chiropractic adjustments, manipulation, mobilizations, massage therapy, and corrective exercises. According to the National Institute for Neurological Disorders and Stroke, cervical traction is another beneficial therapy for symptoms of whiplash. The chiropractor recurrently uses mechanical traction, as well as mechanical massage, moist heat therapy, interferential electrical stimulation, and other physiotherapy techniques to further aid in the recovery process of each individual who’s suffered injuries from an automobile accident.

According to Dr. Jimenez, “We use our experience in treating auto accident injuries to also help our auto injury patients understand and organize the legal implications from being involved in an accident. Insurance companies often win auto injury cases because they request the victims to settle their cases before they’ve even had a chance to receive a medical evaluation for soft tissue injuries. At Injury Medical & Chiropractic Clinic, we will fully document your injuries and treatment for the insurance companies so you can get the money and treatment you deserve!”

Dr. Jimenez has seen and helped hundreds, if not thousands, of auto accident injury victims. Together, Dr. Jimenez and his staff at Injury Medical & Chiropractic Clinic are able to fully document a patient’s examination and treatment plan so that their chiropractic care can be paid for by the auto insurance company. Dr. Jimenez is a medical specialist who understands soft tissue injuries and is also familiar with the legal complications regarding proper auto accident injury care. The chiropractor’s experience and knowledge can help patients get the needed medical attention as required by law.

About the Business: Injury Medical & Chiropractic Clinic is located in a convenient location and its pleasant, professional, and well-trained staff provides support within the office, as well as making sure patients are attended immediately. In addition to helping patients with auto accident injuries, Dr. Jimenez also helps people with back pain, neck pain, tingling or numbness symptoms, shoulder pain, and numerous other conditions or injuries of related pain symptoms and conditions.
