This means that your auto insurance will cover your necessary medical treatments whether or not you were at fault for theauto accident up to $10,000 in most cases.

If we are unable to answer your questions we can refer you to excellent personal injury attorneys in the area that we have worked with, or should you already have one, we will be more than happy to provide them with your updated records and treatment plan they need for your case.

Auto Accident injuries

We can refer you to excellent personal injury attorneys that have experience with all kinds of cases. We take pride in referring our patients when necessary for tests including MRI or medical specialist such as Orthopedic Surgeons and Neurologists to ensure they get all their medical needs met.

Whether your injury is neck-related, back-related, or maybe it's just all over; whether you're suffering from whiplash or getting ongoing headaches and/or migraines; come see us at Active Chiropractic & Rehabilitation, sooner rather than later, and let us take care of you AND the details.

Crashes & Whiplash

Car crashes, collisions, and minor fender benders are the major causes of whiplash. The ill effects of a whiplash injury can occur instantly or it could be weeks or even months before symptoms occur. Injuries to the neck caused by a sudden movement (head forward, back, or sideways) is commonly referred to as "whiplash" or "acceleration/deceleration injuries".

These forces result in straining of muscles, ligaments, and tendons, and in turn, can result in injuries to the spine causing nerve irritation (pinched spinal nerves). The results of such injuries can cause neck pain, shoulder and arm pain or numbness, elbow and hand pain or numbness, low back pain, headaches, dizziness, and blurred vision. The injured areas lose the ability to function and loss of range of motion (stiffness) occurs. The body attempts to adapt and symptoms can appear anywhere from the instant the injury occurred until weeks or even months later.

The Pain is Trying to Tell You Something

Pain is an indicator that a problem exists within our body. Without pain, our bodies could not tell us that there is an injury and that something is wrong. Most minor to moderate whiplash injuries are overlooked by the patient, the hospital, and even the patient's family medical provider due to the lack of initial pain. Several months after the injury, when the patient continues to have pain or it worsens, most people begin to realize that the injury they sustained is worse then they imagined.
