At some point or another, the unavoidable happens and we may fall victim to a car accident. Who’s at fault is not the issue. The problem lies in the damage that a car accident inflicts on the spine and nervous system. This is not just referring to a rollover accident or a head-on collision with a semi-truck. Even an accident at 10 mph can cause a whiplash of the neck that results in significant damage to the spine and nervous system.
Now there is a small window of time to correct these issues before they start making lasting, potentially permanent structural and biomechanical change. That is why time is of the essence after a car accident. In many cases, after an accident, the financial costs of your chiropractic care are covered by the Personal Injury Protection (PIP) on your auto insurance policy. Therefore you may not even have to pay out-of-pocket to correct the damage done to your spine and nervous system. If you were recently in an accident, don’t wait any longer before booking an appointment and getting checked out.
