All of a sudden we have phone calls, appointments, insurance headaches, and, of course, the pain that comes from being in an accident.
As Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows continue to grow, traffic becomes more congested as more cars are on the road. We can expect, accidents to become more common because of this.
Injuries from auto accidents are common and we want to make sure that people get the care they need.
A chiropractor can be one of the best guides to leading you back to health and stability. If you've been injured in an accident, please come in for a visit and we will get you on the path to recovery right away.
We work with a lot of auto accident victims in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. We'd like to help.
In terms of your health care Chiropractors are well trained to diagnose, treat and or refer you in this situation. At our office we may take an on site digital Xray to assist us in properly making a diagnosis and deciding on course of action.
Often what seem like minor car accidents with minimal damage can create some stress on the body that can cause pain. We see this often and are well equipped to help.
Sometimes many regions are effected during an accident that can result in muscle strain, ligamentous strain and loss of optimal joint motion. This damage can result in whiplash (neck problems) and also sciatica symptoms (lower back problems). Our first goal is to calm this pain down and slowly restore motion and function.
Eventually you will be able to do exercises and stretches with less pain as you recover. If at any time during your care the chiropractor finds a problem that requires the assistance of your doctor you will be advised and referred immediately. It is also common for chiropractors, physiotherapists and massage therapists to work together on patients injured in a car accident.
In many cases we encourage our patients to also update their medical doctor about injuries resulting from a car accident.
Also did you know our office accepts the ICBC flat fee program for chiropractic care. Our office can forward your injury report to your ICBC claims adjustor for approval. In most cases care is then accepted and paid for directly to the chiropractor by ICBC allowing you quick access to care with no financial barrier.
