Treatments for Auto Accident Pain
Along with how scary they are, auto accidents are a debilitating experience. Not only do they take so much time and energy, but their symptoms are inherently inescapable. While some injuries are clear, many injuries resulting from a car accident seem invisible at first. Eventually, your neck starts feeling stiff after the initial chaos of the car accident subsides, or your tingling arm evolves into full-fledged pain.
The pain you experience after a car accident is extremely stressful and a major hinderence on your day-to-day life. Not only do you struggle to keep up with normal daily routines, but the pain seems to be getting worse and worse for months—or even years—after the car accident. If these injuries continue to be left untreated, they will continue to worsen until it becomes chronic (permanent) or until only a surgical procedure can fix it.
Regardless of how serious the car accident was, the smartest choice is to see a medical professional for a thorough screening specializing in auto accidents. If an underlying issue from your car accident goes untreated and continues to worsen, it may end up impacting your life.
Dr. Adams and his clinic at Progressive Integrated Healthcare of Dallas has the experience and expertise to properly diagnose pain and provide treatments for managing the pain caused by an automobile accident. As a licensed medical provider specializing in chiropractic care, his clinic accurately pinpoints the cause of your pain after a car accident and effectively treats—and even heals—your conditions. What’s more is that going to Progressive Integrated Healthcare of Dallas instead of a traditional chiropractor may save you up to 25% on your medical bills.
Letter of Protection
Many times, the party-at-fault receives significantly less injuries than the victim(s) of a car accident. While there are a plethora of studies that support this hypothesis, the real issue is the expense of the victim’s medical bills. These begin to pile up until they become hard to manage or are simply unaffordable. While being held responsible for your medical bills due to another person’s negligence is an ethical question in itself, the piling debt can’t be ignored.
In cases like these, your attorney may write a letter of protection to assist you in this financial battle. A letter of protection is a legal agreement stating that the injured party (you) will resolve your medical bills with a provider after either your case is settled, judged, or closed. This legal agreement is extremely helpful for most car accident injury victims because it doesn’t work in the way a reimbursement does—which is how insurance companies work. Instead of being expected to pay your way through all of your medical bills before settling your case, a letter of protection assures that you’ll take care of it after you’ve received your due settlement.
Dr. Adams and his clinic at Progressive Integrated Healthcare of Dallas accepts letters of protection.
Dr. Adams and the team at Progressive Integrated Healthcare of Dallas have experience working with many different law firms and their letter of protection documents. We understand the pain you’re experiencing and believe you should not be burdened further with piling medical debt on our part. Our seasoned Dallas team works with attorneys and respects their letters of protection, removing any payment expectations at the time of service off your shoulders.
Save Money by Seeing Dr. Adams
While going to a hospital or physician after a car accident is essential, many of the resulting injuries—especially those that aren’t an immediate emergency—don’t necessarily require a hospital visit; more a specialist. Many times, car accident victims seek chiropractors to help treat their pain (especially whiplash or pain related to pinched nerves and ruptured discs) as chiropractic therapy helps immensely in managing pain, discomfort and immobility. However, many don’t realize one very important thing:
Insurance companies take away 25% of your well-earned money if you submit bills from a chiropractor.
This is because insurance companies don’t recognize a chiropractor as a medical provider or a “true medical entity.” However, Dr. Adams is a licensed medical provider, and Progressive Integrated Healthcare of Dallas is a medical entity. Thus, his specialized chiropractic care for auto accidents saves you 25% more money than going to a traditional chiropractor.
Dr. Adams specializes in whiplash and other car accident injuries to save you as much trouble as possible when dealing with bills and insurance. Progressive Integrated Healthcare of Dallas will work with your attorney to ensure you receive the highest quality healthcare possible, while lessening your financial burden as much as we can. Call our office today to find out how Dr. Adams and his team can help you through your car accident injuries.
Treatments for Auto Accidents
During your initial consultation, Dr. Adams will access the source of your pain and recommend a proper treatment plan. Whether the pain from your injuries involves joints, muscles, whiplash, or migraines, we have the expertise to properly treat you. A brief list of our most common treatments are:
- Ice/Cold Therapy reduces inflammation and helps control pain.
- Ultrasound Therapy or heat therapy, created by sound waves that penetrate deep into soft tissues and muscles. Ultrasound therapy for sciatica increases your circulation, reduces muscle spasms, swelling, stiffness, and pain related to sciatica.
- TENS unit (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) stimulates your muscles. The electrical current controls pain and reduces muscle spasms.
- Adjustments (Spinal Manipulation) Careful adjustments and spinal manipulation helps promote improved movement of your spine and realigns your vertebrae to their proper position. The chiropractic spinal adjustments and alignments reduces sciatica nerve pain, inflammation, and any muscle spasms. If you’re wondering about pain, adjustments and alignments are not painful. In fact, chiropractic spinal manipulation is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for sciatica and sciatic pain.
