Frequently Asked Questions about Auto Accident Injuries
Auto accidents can be distressing and often lead to many questions, especially regarding potential injuries and their aftermath. Here are some frequently asked questions (FAQs) about auto accident injuries to help you better understand what to do in the event of an accident and how to navigate the recovery process. We provide detailed questions and answers to patients' common questions about auto accident injury care from Metro Denver Accident & Injury Centers in Denver, Aurora, or Westminster.
Do small accidents produce injuries I should worry about?
Every case is unique. Small accidents can produce injuries that may have long-term effects on your health if left untreated. While major accidents often cause obvious injuries, such as broken bones or severe trauma, minor accidents can also lead to underlying issues that may not be immediately apparent.
Doesn’t the emergency room at the hospital take care of auto accident injury needs?
The hospital's emergency room (ER) is essential for addressing immediate and life-threatening injuries after an auto accident. General medicine doesn’t deal effectively with the recovery side of a serious auto accident injury. They only provide basic physical therapy and depend on the body to heal. Your hospital may not provide all the comprehensive care needed for certain types of auto accident injuries, especially those that are musculoskeletal or soft tissue-related.
What will our chiropractor see that a doctor won’t on an X-ray?
Our chiropractor’s review goes beyond the immediate evaluation of a general physician. A general physician focuses on directly repairing obvious injuries. We will look for issues that slow recovery. These issues include scar tissue, inflammation, chronic pain, swelling, and joint misalignment. A physician may only address the pain with pharmaceuticals or surgery, but our chiropractor has several treatment options to address the body’s mechanics and restore proper function.
