Auto Accident Injuries

Auto Accident Injury Treatment From Our Chiropractor in Bellevue, WA

Auto accidents happen on the road every day by the thousands. If you or a loved one is involved in an incident, consider consulting with our chiropractor in Bellevue WA, Dr. Edward Owens. Dr. Owens trusts in and facilitates your body's ability to heal itself through natural drug-free services, and he's happy to answer your questions about auto accident injuries.

Here's a snippet of a video I did awhile ago talking about accidents (personal injury, auto accidents, work-related accidents and more) and their lasting effects.

What are common auto accident injuries?

Whiplash is one of the most common auto accident injuries, caused by the whip-like movement of the neck experienced during car crashes. Other common injuries include muscle strains, ligament sprains, joint dislocations and subluxations, and contusion injuries.

The car accident was minor, Should I still meet with a chiropractor?

Yes! Even minor car accidents can impose thousands of pounds of force on your strong but highly intricate spine. Likewise, it's not unusual to feel "fine" for a few days or even weeks after an auto accident, despite the presence of an as-yet undiagnosed injury. Why? Because hormones like adrenaline surge at times of trauma and can hide pain for weeks until they go back to their normal levels. 

Lastly, going to the hospital is absolutely important, especially if you have severe injuries or head trauma. But chiropractors are experts in the diagnosis, management, and treatment of common musculoskeletal and neurological conditions which may persist or go undetected following car accidents.

What services can a Bellevue chiropractor offer me following a car accident?

Our services address the underlying inflammation and other causes of your injury as well as manage or resolve your symptoms. If you come to see us for auto accident injury treatment, expect a customized plan of care which can include spinal adjustments, massage therapy, and corrective exercises.

Will my insurance cover my chiropractic treatment?

Depending on the type of auto and/or health insurance you have, your care may be covered. It's important to see us as soon as possible so we can help you file any claims and submit necessary paperwork (to both your insurance company and your legal counsel, if necessary).

Don't have insurance or aren't covered? We offer several flexible payment options so that money is never again a barrier to optimal health, which is your birthright!
