The first thing that people think of when they get into an accident is the extent of the damage to their car. They might not feel any pain or symptoms right away as a result of their auto accident. It may take a few hours, days or even weeks for symptoms to appear. The sudden rush of adrenaline can make the swelling and damage seem less intrusive than it actually is. Even minor injuries need to be evaluated to avoid future life-altering conditions.
Delayed treatment can result in a delayed recovery process. It is important to be evaluated and seek chiropractic treatment right away.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

If you have experienced an auto accident and it was not your fault (defendant), you won’t have to pay your medical bills on an ongoing basis. If you have medical payment insurance (MedPay within your insurance policy), MedPay will cover your medical costs regardless of who caused the accident.
Do you work with attorneys?
Yes! If you are already working with an attorney, great. If you don’t have an attorney, we can refer you to one of the wonderful auto-accident attorneys we work within the Sacramento area.
Do you accept liens?
Yes, we do.
When should I see a chiropractor after an auto accident?
It is important you seek chiropractic care soon after your accident to get your injuries evaluated. With some patients, the pain and symptoms of an injury will present right away while for others, it may take days or weeks. By delaying the process of seeking care, you can delay your recovery process and incur the unnecessary expense of prolonged treatment.
Also, the longer you wait, the more likely an insurance company is to reduce your settlement value. If you are suffering from serious injuries such as fractures or broken bones, you should seek medical attention and emergency care immediately.
