What You Should Know If You Have Been Involved In An Auto Accident
One of the most stressful situations many people deal with on a daily basis in the Merrifield, Fairfax VA, Vienna VA and Falls Church VA area are handling the problems and tasks that arise after being in an auto accident.
Unfortunately one of the last things we are concerned with after an accident is ourselves and possible injuries. Also, are you aware that various auto accident injuries are hidden and often do not manifest themselves for months or even years?
As a result, many auto accident injuries are not handled properly and accident victims frequently settle their case with the insurance companies without getting evaluated from a physician trained in soft tissue and auto accident injuries.
… This Could Be A Major Mistake.
Why? Once you settle your case, you forfeit the right to have your treatments paid for by your insurance company, should you need any. At Concept Chiropractic and Rehab , we inform you of your rights concerning an auto accident and educate you properly to take the steps you need to take to make an informed decision about your care.
Our priority is to effectively inform you and educate you, and then comprehensively evaluate you to rule out any injuries due to the auto accident. Once a diagnosis has been made, our goal is to bring you back to full functional status, just as you were before the accident. Auto accidents can be a frustrating and complicated ordeal. The most common complaint of auto accident victims is that they feel very abnormal and do not feel like themselves at all. Unfortunately, many victims are injured but are also asymptomatic, which could delay them from getting properly evaluated and cared for.

Most Common Conditions suffered during a Car Accident
Imagine driving through a hard rain storm when suddenly the car in front of you comes to an unexpected stop. You quickly slow down only to have the car behind yours hit your rear end. Luckily there are no serious injuries but that night you feel a dull ache in your neck. What do you do now? Any substantial blow to your body, whether from a car accident, contact sports, or an accident at work, can cause whiplash or other neck injuries and warrants a thorough chiropractic check-up. The biggest danger with whiplash injuries is that the symptoms can take years to develop. Too often people don’t seek treatment until more serious complications develop.
