Auto and motorcycle accidents require chiropractic care. They are common causes of trauma to the spine and central nervous system. If you have been in an accident— even if you are not immediately experiencing pain or other symptoms — it’s important that you visit a chiropractor for a comprehensive spinal evaluation.
At Hruby Chiropractic Wellness, we have extensive experience in evaluating and caring for auto and motorcycle accidents patients. Through X-rays and/or physical examination techniques, Dr. Hruby can identify spinal subluxations (misalignments) of the vertebrae in the neck and back and detect damage to supportive tissues.
Pain and other symptoms of nervous system damage may not be noticeable until weeks or months after the auto and motorcycle accidents occurred. If left uncorrected, subluxations can worsen, leading to pain, nervous system dysfunction, and ultimately to spinal degeneration.
According to the American Chiropractic Association, “Approximately two-thirds of people involved in motor vehicle accidents develop symptoms of whiplash. The symptoms usually do not develop until two to 48 hours after the injury. “
Does my insurance cover chiropractic care for my auto and motorcycle accidents?
Most auto insurance policies cover chiropractic care for accident victims. This is true regardless of who is at fault, or whether you were a driver, passenger or pedestrian at the time of the accident.
