Car Accident Care.
We Make It Easy.
Fortunately, for those involved in automobile accidents, Fort Collins Chiropractic bills insurance directly during treatment.
Many times after an auto accident, pain or symptoms won't show up for a couple hours to a few days. In the shock of the moment, you may not even know if you have been injured. Checking for spinal misalignment is an important step in your health.
Research shows the force of impact needed to cause whiplash is as little as 6mph. Slow does not necessarily equal low impact. The long-term effects of whiplash can be devastating to your abilities, function, hobbies and career and uncomfortable at best.
The best outcome of recovery will also be related to how quickly afterward you receive care. And yet, if it's been a few days or a few weeks, it's still a good idea to get treatment and healing started.
Here are some signs of whiplash to look for:
1. Pain within 2 hours-a few days.
2. Muscle tenderness
3. Headaches, especially at the base of the skull.
4. Disrupted sleep
5. Dizziness and Fatigue
6. Shoulder pain
7. Loss in range of motion, particularly over time due to avoiding painful movements. Other body parts will compensate, such as bending at the waist when reaching in order to restrict arm or shoulder movement.
8. Numbness or tingling down the arms. When the spine has been compromised, the nerves connecting various body parts to the brain will also be affected.
How auto-injury care works:
During your new or updated patient consultation, Dr. Venekamp will develop a treatment plan combining gentle Chiropractic techniques and Massage Therapy (when applicable), to ensure your recovery is the best possible.
As involves your auto-accident treatment at Fort Collins Chiropractic, providers and/or staff will communicate with the specified insurance concerning financial coverage so that you may focus on your care. You will be released from care when appropriate or satisfactory results are reached.
Fort Collins Chiropractic is also experienced in communication with and may reach out to attorneys, specialists, and referr for additional testing.
Dr. Venekamp has over 30 years’ experience in health and injury care.
