Advanced Spine & Rehab and Advanced Family Healthcare for Auto Accidents
Following a car accident, it is important for you to take a few simple steps in order to minimize the long-term negative effects of the accident. This includes taking steps to get the proper treatment for your body while also protecting your finances. To that end, here are the things you should do immediately following a car accident.
Treat Your Injury
If your accident was not serious, you still need to give your body time to rest following the accident. Apply ice to the injured area as soon as possible to help reduce inflammation. If you experience dizziness, confusion or loss of balance, seek immediate medical care. To help speed up the healing process, it is also a good idea to pursue chiropractic care. In addition to correcting spinal issues, chiropractic care can offer a number of other therapies to treat injuries. Some common injuries associated with car accidents include neck pain and stiffness, head pain, pain that travels down the arms and back, fatigue, irritability, vertigo and jaw pain.
Protect Your Finances
If you were not at fault for the car accident, the insurance company for the other drive is financially responsible for paying your medical bills. If you were found at fault, your auto insurance may also cover the expenses. If both of these options fail, your medical insurance may provide coverage for your care. At Advanced Spine & Rehab, we will work closely with you and your insurance company to help you receive the treatment you need for your car accidentat the most affordable cost.
