Auto Accident Injuries

Imagine trying to balance a bowling ball on a stick.  To make it more difficult, tilt the stick forward while trying to maintain balance of the bowling ball.  That’s what it’s like trying to support your head on your neck if it loses its natural curve!
A whiplash injury can cause your neck to lose its natural curve.  Adjustments, exercises, stretching, and an orthopedic pillow can all assist you in restoring your neck’s normal curvature.  Now think of the same bowling ball resting on a large spring… can you see and feel the difference?
At Stone Chiropractic,  injuries are treated with chiropractic adjustments with the hands, appropriate physical therapy, exercise to rehabilitate, and nutrition to help the body have what it needs to heal.  One of the therapies available for people injured in auto accidents is the K-Laser. Whiplash, bruises, cuts, and other injuries heal faster when treated with this class IV, 10 watt laser.  It is different from other lasers like the cold laser or class III laser, because the power is much higher and the results are incredibly faster.
Should a driver give a statement to the other person’s insurance?
This is a question that comes up frequently in my office.  An attorney that I trust, Randal L. Meek answers that question:

After being in an auto accident, a driver is sometimes contacted by the other driver’s insurer.  Here is what most auto insurance agents recommend:
Q:  Should a driver give a statement to the other person’s insurance company?
A:  No.  Unless their agent or attorney agrees, a driver should say nothing.
Q:  How could making a statement hurt?
A:  Most people are friendly and want to answer questions honestly and fully.  That could hurt a driver’s case if he or she makes remarks that somehow increase their own liability or reduce the other driver’s responsibility.
Q:  So how should drivers respond if agents pressure them?
A:  Drivers should tell representatives that all further contact should be directed to their insurance agents or attorneys.
Q:  What else can drivers do?
A:  As soon as they’re done with this kind of call, drivers should write a short record covering the conversation, noting date, time, topics, and whatever else seems important.  Stay in touch with insurance agents and attorneys.

Remember, if you are ever involved in an automobile accident, be sure to seek care right away.  Statistics show that chiropractic care right after an accident is more effective at helping patients get better faster.
