Car Accident Injuries Q & A
What Injuries Do Car Accidents Cause?
Injuries stemming from an automobile accident cause any number of problems ranging from whiplash to a broken bone or back and neck problems. Whiplash is actually the most common automobile injury. Paralysis is possible from a spinal cord injury.
Does a Doctor Need to Refer a Patient to a Chiropractor?
A medical doctor or surgeon may refer the patient to a chiropractor after an accident. The patient may also seek out a chiropractor. Sometimes, an insurance company will only cover the problem if the patient was referred to him such as for physical therapy. It's important for a patient to check into his or her insurance prior to seeking the help of a chiropractor.
What Type of Treatment Will the Patient Receive?
The chiropractor will use the medical doctor's results or the patient's complaints to determine the best course of action. The chiropractor may conduct physical therapy consisting of exercises or physical manipulation to correct the issue. In most cases, the medical doctor usually refers the patient for physical therapy. The chiropractor may perform a spinal alignment to relieve pressure on the spine. This helps with back or neck pain, especially if the accident caused a herniated disc or another similar condition.
How Long Does Treatment Last?
This depends on the injury and the severity of it. Most of the time the patient only requires 6 to 10 weeks worth of treatment, though continuous treatment that lasts over the course of several months, a year, or longer may benefit someone who has chronic pain. Patients that require physical therapy usually need more than one session to treat the issue.
Does Every Patient Make a Full Recovery?
This depends on the patient's condition. Dr. Kim strives to help patients achieve the highest quality of life possible by working on increasing mobility and reducing pain as much as possible.
