Most people that are injured in auto accidents will go to the ER. Most of the time a visit to the ER is not necessary unless you have sustained major injuries like broken bones or loss of consciousness. The majority of patients treated in the ER for auto accidents end up getting an X-ray, a prescription for some high dose NSAID (such as ibuprofen), instructions to follow up with your primary care doctor and a large bill for services rendered.
Most auto accidents result in soft tissue injuries and those types of injuries are best treated by an auto injury chiropractor.
If you have been injured in an auto accident you or anyone in your car is covered by your auto insurance policy, regardless of who was at fault. This is put in place so you can get the medical attention necessary without having to worry about medical bills, even if the auto accident was your fault. Utah law requires that every auto policy have at least $3,000 of personal injury protection (PIP).
Some soft tissue injuries are not felt immediately, but delaying treatment can prolong the pain. If you feel that you have sustained soft tissue injuries in your accident it is best to call and book an appointment with an auto injury chiropractor as soon as possible. This way we can open the case with the auto insurance and get you feeling better as soon as possible.
Most of our auto accident patients see a reduction in their pain within a few visits. Chiropractic treatments focus on the root of the problem and not just treating the symptom of pain. These types of treatments result in quicker recovery time with less long-term problems down the road.
Most of our auto injury patients are finished with treatment well before they reach their $3,000 PIP. If you have been in an auto accident call 801-487-1010 and book your appointment today.
